Trump Organization executive vice president Donald Trump Jr. slammed New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the wake of a seventh accusation of sexual misconduct.Trump told “Fox News Primetime” that not only is the 63-year-old Queens native’s alleged behavior outrageous, but that if a Republican governor had been accused of a similar offense, they would already have been forced from office and “perp walked.”
He told host Maria Bartiromo that until most recently, Cuomo was acclaimed by Democrats and the media as a “hero” of the coronavirus pandemic, despite the fact his administration ordered elderly COVID-positive patients back into nursing facilities, which allowed the virus to spread.
“This guy was made a hero when he seems like he’s maybe the biggest predator in American politics today. And yet that’s what you get if you are a Democrat — You can get away with it,” Trump said.”No one is going to hold you accountable.
The media will give you an Emmy award while you are either sending Nana to her death or you are groping one of your staffers.”Trump, broadcasting from Palm Beach, Florida, surmised that if the governor of his current state, Republican Ron DeSantis, was embroiled in identical scandals, “he would be in jail right now.””But Andrew Cuomo will likely get away with it. Joe Biden won’t even comment on it,” he said.
