Michael Bloomberg’s alleged misogynist behavior with a pregnant worker in his business empire was “far worse” than President Donald Trump’s sexist comments caught on an Access Hollywood tape, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Sunday.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Conway pointed to the reported history of Bloomberg’s sexist comments about women, including an exchange with a pregnant saleswoman whom he asked if she'd “kill it.” Bloomberg has denied her allegation under oath, and he reached a confidential settlement with the saleswoman, the Washington Post noted.

“You don’t have to wait for an election to be offended,” Conway said, adding: “It’s far worse than (the Hollywood Access tape).. the way Michael Bloomberg treated employees… that unsafe workplace… to feel like you’re being harassed because of your gender… that’s going to be problematic.”

“Voters talk about what offends them, they care about what affects them,” Conway added.

Conway also defended Trump’s involvement and comments about Department of Justice cases, asserting other presidents have done so as well.

“it’s not correct to say presidents haven’t interfered,” she said, noting “President [Barack] Obama commented on the Freddie Grey case.”

“The president has not asked or directed the Attorney General to do anything,” she said, but noted that Trump believes there’s two-tiered criminal justice system and that’s it’s evidenced in the case of  former deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe.

“He’s lied,” she said, deriding him, however, as “small potatoes.”

“The president thinks Andy McCabe should have been punished,” she said.

Pressed about Trump’s claim that he has the legal authority to get involved in criminal justice cases, Conway pointed out: “He gets involved in the whole world.”
