Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Friday accused Democrats of ignoring allegations of a sexual nature when they are made against people of their own party like New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo but attacking Republicans facing similar accusations.
"When it is a Democrat like Cuomo or Joe Biden with Tara Reade or even the Lincoln Project which became a tool for the Democrats, they ignore all these allegations," McDaniel told Fox News' Harris Faulkner. "The media is complicit in allowing this hypocrisy to stand."
This shows that the Democrats and the media "don't really care about the women" or their stories, said McDaniel, but "they care about it only when it serves their purposes. It's really shameful."
She also slammed Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., for not standing up against Cuomo after three young women, two from his own administration, accused him of sexual harassment.
"There is a balance of power issue," said McDaniel while referring to one of the women, Charlotte Bennett, 25, a former executive assistant of Cuomo's who said in a television interview that she thinks she was being "groomed" by the governor for sex.
"This is a governor with a young aide talking to her in a sexually explicit way," said McDaniel. "It is scary. It's scary being a young woman in that situation with a man in power who controls your destiny. That's what is so frightening about this. If women like Kirsten Gillibrand won't stand up against their own party then they have no credibility."
She added that Cuomo should resign over the scandal on nursing home deaths alone, as he didn't tell New Yorkers the truth but the silence of Democrats over the allegations of sexual harassment "really is hypocritical."
Meanwhile, McDaniel slammed Biden over the continued school closures and his having not held a press conference after taking office in January.
"It is time for the media to treat Joe Biden like they would Donald Trump," said McDaniel. "This would have been unacceptable with a Republican president."
