“The View” co-host Joy Behar gave a confused response to the sexual harassment allegations against Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Tuesday, saying that Democrats should “ignore everything” and hope the scandal goes away while also calling for an investigation into the claims.
A third woman accused Cuomo late Monday of unwanted advances, and calls for Cuomo to resign have grown louder amid dueling scandals over allegations of improper behavior toward women and his handling of nursing homes during the coronavirus pandemic.
Behar mocked Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., for saying Democrats should employ the “Republican model” on the case by giving the accusations proper attention.
“The Republican playbook is, let’s hope that this goes away, and let’s not really go into it. So he’s right,” Behar said. “We should use the Republican playbook because the Democrats do the opposite. A case in point, [with] Al Franken, Senator [Kirsten] Gillibrand [said] off with his head immediately, you know, he needs to resign, and a lot of Democrats got behind it.”
Behar noted Gillibrand, who angered some Democrats for leading the caucus in ousting Franken from the Senate in 2017, had been more cautious regarding the accusations against Cuomo.
