MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski ripped White House adviser Kellyanne Conway for gloating over the resignation of a New York Democrat over domestic abuse accusations — as she continues to serve President Donald Trump.
Eric Schneiderman abruptly resigned Monday evening after The New Yorker reported that four women had accused him of physical violence — and Conway celebrated the political downfall of a prominent Trump enemy.

“Given that tweet, it seems that Conway has given license to remind people that she’s been less eager to comment on another powerful man who said on tape that he kisses and grabs women without consent,” Brzezinski said.
The “Morning Joe” producers rolled the infamous “Access Hollywood” recording that showed Trump boasting about getting away with sexual assault because he was famous, and Scarborough called out Conway and other Trump apologists as hypocrites.
“Democrats immediately stepped forward and called on Eric Schneiderman to resign,” Scarborough said, “yet the party that claims it’s the party of family values, the party of Mike Pence, that surrounds itself with preachers that say that Donald Trump prays before meetings, the party that has Donald Trump going out in the Rose Garden talking about National Prayer Day soon after he admit to one lurid affair after another, after lying about them, this is, I guess, the party of Donald Trump and the party of Mike Pence.”
“There’s quite a contrast,” he continued. “I mean, let’s be honest, let’s be blunt. It was the Democratic Party in the 1990s that enabled Bill Clinton and would say behind the scenes that, yes, they knew Bill Clinton abused women and treated them terribly, but they still circled the wagons for him.”
“At least the Democratic Party has figured it out now, but the Republicans — wow, unbelievable,” Scarborough added. “Anybody that opens their mouth against Eric Schneiderman has it coming straight back at them about the man they defend day in and day out.”
Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent
The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.
The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.
Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
Cincinnati sheriff deputies replace American flag at the Justice Center with ‘thin-blue-line’ flag
Cincinnati police were filmed replacing the American flag that hangs over the Justice Center in Ohio's third-largest city. They then replaced it with the thin-blue-line flag, that was created to advocate for law-enforcement during Black Lives Matter Protests.
During the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, right-wing and white supremacist activists carried the thin-blue-line flag along with the Confederate flag to speak out against Black Lives Matter.
While the flag may have been created in support of law enforcement, it has been adopted by white supremacists and taken on a darker meaning.
WATCH: DC protesters turn over ‘agitator’ to police — then the agitators try to start a fight with cops
Protesters in Washington, D.C. were captured on video handing over an agitator to police, while other agitators in paintball tactical gear appeared to try and start fights with police.
Former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, revealed that his former colleagues and law enforcement he knows recognize that far-right agitators are attempting to start significant conflicts between police and protesters.
"There is a minimal presence of Antifa, but a far more disturbing presence of right-wing race-based hate groups, such as the Boogaloo Boys who think there will be a race-based civil war coming," he said on MSNBC.
