Late last week, a seventh woman came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate conduct against Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Although several high-profile Democrats have called for Cuomo to step down, Vice President Kamala Harris isn’t one of them. Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted Harris for her silence and hypocrisy on Sunday during her Fox News show Justice with Judge Jeanine, Newsweek reported.
“A woman without a moral core”
“[S]he is a fraud, a phony, a woman without a moral core, a regular two-faced, mealy-mouthed politician who swings with the wind,” Pirro said of Harris during the Closing Arguments portion of her show. “A real role model, ain’t she?” the former New York state judge added sarcastically.
She continued, “But remember, a woman who couldn’t get one percent of support in her party’s presidential primary nomination, a woman destined to be president, many believe, in the very near future, who can’t answer a question about whether or not Andrew Cuomo should resign after seven women accuse him of sexual harassment and assault.”
“What is this woman afraid of?” Pirro demanded before playing footage of Harris walking away as reporters attempted to ask her questions about the scandal-plagued governor.
“Some supporter of women, huh?” Pirro continued. “A woman paraded around as a champion of women quick to believe all women unless it doesn’t work to her political advantage.”
“Not the kind of woman we need”
Pirro also referenced a tweet Harris posted during the violent 2020 riots that followed the death of George Floyd in police custody in which she asked her followers to donate to an organization that bails accused criminals out of jail. “A woman who once prosecuted cases on behalf of rape victims who then turns around to raise money for the Minnesota Freedom Fund that bails out the men who rape women,” Pirro said.
The host concluded her program, declaring, “This is certainly not the kind of woman we need running this country as president.” Take a look:
“A woman who stands up for all women unless they are accusing a member of her political party unless it works to her political benefit…this is certainly not the kind of woman we need running this country as President.” #CLOSINGSTATEMENT pic.twitter.com/9Prc65Gg9M

Harris’ silence on the sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo stand in marked contrast to how she reacted when decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct emerged against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.
“Let’s speak the truth that it was a denial of justice for the women of this country, and sexual assault survivors,” Harris said following Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Fox News reported.
