Judge Jeanine Pirro sounded off on “fraud” Vice President Kamala Harris after she refused to comment on sexual harassment claims against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).
Pirro ripped Harris as a cynic who only “supports women” when she finds it politically suitable, the Washington Examiner reported.
Jeanine rips Harris for Cuomo response
Harris ignored a journalist who asked about Cuomo on Wednesday, adopting a similar approach to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and President Joe Biden, both Democrats who profess to “believe women,” at least when it’s convenient.
Over a dozen women have accused Cuomo of sexual harassment, including one who claims he groped her, and he has also come under fire for covering up deaths in nursing homes.
Harris’ response is not altogether surprising to those who already saw her as a cynical phony motivated principally by the pursuit of power.
Pointing out how the media has fawned over Harris and her rise, Pirro called the VP a “fraud, a phony, a woman without a moral core, a regular two-faced, mealy-mouthed politician who swings with the wind.”
“A woman paraded around as a champion for women quick to believe all women, unless it doesn’t work to her political advantage,” Pirro said, recalling that Harris supported the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a bail fund that ended up contributing to freeing rapists.
Harris, Biden, Pelosi non-committal
This is not the first time Harris has abandoned her so-called principles. Critics note that she claimed to believe women who accused Biden, her now-boss, of touching them inappropriately before she joined Biden’s presidential campaign and forgot all about it.
“I believe them, and I respect them being able to tell their story and having the courage to do it,” Harris said at the time.
Of course, Harris also played a prominent role in prosecuting the witch hunt against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 to burnish her “ally” credentials. But like Biden and Pelosi, she has been more non-committal about Cuomo, calling for an investigation to finish before forming conclusions.
“I think the vice president’s view is she believes a woman should be treated with respect. Their voices should be heard. They should tell their story,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.
Some Democrats have been surprisingly forceful in calling for Cuomo’s resignation, however, including Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the most powerful Democrat in New York other than Cuomo.
