According to ‘View’ host Joy Behar, any attempt to investigate New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for sexually harassing a woman to the point that she feared him must be met with yet another investigation into President Trump. Sure, the President has successfully faced down two impeachment attempts — one while he was a private citizen — and been found innocent. He’s weathered numerous investigations, some of which are ongoing. To date, Democrats have found nothing to use against him. But Behar says that none of that matters — a legitimate investigation into Cuomo makes yet another tired Donald Trump witch hunt necessary.
Former Cuomo staffer Lindsey Boylan revealed on Medium that she had gone through years of torture at Cuomo’s hands, with the Governor making numerous unwanted advances that included asking her to play strip poker and forcing a kiss on her. According to Boylan, this behavior was well-known and even “normalized” by her fellow female staffers. But just like when Tara Reade bravely told of her experiences with Joe Biden, the Left is in full attack mode.
On Thursday’s edition of The View, Behar came out swinging — but not at Cuomo. “I think they’re pretty bad. His office has denied the allegations, but they’re pretty specific,” Behar said. “They have been corroborated by at least one other aide, so it definitely merits investigation. I’m sure the Democrats will be quick to remove him if it all comes out in the wash because that’s what the Democrats do. Case in point, Al Franken. Bye-bye.”
She could have stopped there and she might have made a well-reasoned point. Franken, for example, was gone in three seconds after allegations against him surfaced. However, Tara Reade’s credible allegations against Joe Biden were ignored by Behar despite her championing the cause of a woman who threw fake and disproven allegations at Brett Kavanaugh. Naturally, as she likes to pick and choose which women to support Behar demanded a price for an investigation into the credible allegations made by the former Cuomo staffer — investigations into Donald Trump, Kavanaugh, and Jim Jordan.
While it’s true that all three of these men were accused of various improprieties, all three have been exonerated. But that’s not good enough for Behar.
“So I would like to also add that these allegations should be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated just like the following; Jim Jordan, for covering up and failing to report sexual abuse of minors by former members of the Ohio State University wrestling team, Brett Kavanaugh, the FBI did a hurried three-day investigation into credible claims from multiple women,” she said, adding:
“Remember that? It was, like, ‘Oh, we’re done. We’re done. And of course, Donald Trump himself, who is accused of upwards of 25 women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. If you are going to investigate Cuomo, you better investigate these other people. That’s all I’m saying.”
President Trump has been investigated enough. Kavanaugh? Definitely enough? Jordan? He was also investigated. Her problem isn’t with a lack of investigations, but that she didn’t like the results of them. The Left wants to punish their enemies. They don’t care about justice or right and wrong. Just exacting vengeance.
