Watch: Hasan Boldly Lies While Crying Over Disgraced Cuomo, Is He Joking?
While watching MSNBC's Mehdi Hasan's ridiculous segment on NYC's gov Andrew Cuomo's resignation I kept asking myself if he was serious. The whining host didn't deny that Cuomo is a sexual predator but advocated to give him a pass because 'Republicans do it'. Hasan then doubled down with a whopper about how only Democrats are held accountable for their crimes.
Hasan began by crying that Cuomo was taken out by his own party saying, "Democrats put pressure on one of their own, a Democratic attorney general opened up multiple investigations into the Democratic governor. Members of his own party finally head him accountable. And it worked."
At first Hasan scolds Democrats for allegedly knowing Cuomo was a creep and doing nothing to stop him but quickly turns around and praises Dems for taking Cuomo down. Adding, "Unlike, wait for it, the other great political party in this country. I mean, Republicans."
Hasan then goes on to mention any Republican ever accused but never found guilty of sexual harassment. He conveniently left out the fact that New York's own AG found Cuomo guilty during her investigation. He then dragged Justice Kavanagh and Justice Thomas, who were both found innocent of any wrongdoing.
We have even seen this on the Supreme Court. Clarence Thomas was confirmed despite Anita Hill's accusation of sexual harassment. So was Brett Kavanaugh more recently after Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of sexual assault. Not a single Republican voted no on Kavanagh’s confirmation.
Hasan concluded that, "today is a sad day for the Democratic Party. One of their stars, a man they were considering as a presidential candidate just a year ago, resigned in disgrace. But you could say, it's a sadder day for American democracy because it's a reminder that there are only consequences, there is only accountability for Democrats in our system. Not for Republicans."
Hasan presented Republicans, who were cleared or currently under investigation as guilty. The crackpot also claimed that Democrats are the only ones held accountable for their crimes— Another brazen lie.
