On Monday on Fox News, Jeff Poor reported Donald Trump Jr.’s criticism of the left’s double standard. This double standard, of course, refers to how the Democrats persecute the Republicans but hold themselves unaccountable when they’re in the wrong.
As Don Jr. told Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo benefits from the double standard. Although he is under scrutiny, he is not being held accountable under the law.
“If Andrew Cuomo were a Republican governor, they would have perp-walked him into a courthouse by now,” the younger Trump said. “Beyond the obvious—the sexual harassment allegations—you have a few allegations now that seem to go much further than that.”
“There was actually touching involved,” he continued. “That seems to be more like sexual assault to me. You then also have the added benefit of the fact that he lied about sending your grandmother into a nursing home to her death, times a few thousand, and then tried to cover that up.”
Don Jr. continued to unleash on the governor and criticize the double standard that the Democrats obviously show.
“This guy was made a hero when he seems like he’s maybe the biggest predator in American politics today,” Trump Jr. said. “And yet, that’s what you get if you’re a Democrat—you can get away with it. No one’s going to hold you accountable.”
“The media will give you an Emmy Award while you’re either sending Nana to her death or you’re groping one of your staffers. That’s what’s going on here…If Ron Desantis did that as governor of Florida, he’d be in jail by now. But Andrew Cuomo will likely get away with it,” he added.
On Monday morning, President Biden was asked by a reporter, “Do you think Governor Andrew Cuomo should resign?”
“I think the investigation is underway. We should see what it brings us,” he responded.
”It’s a double standard that we have to correct. It cannot continue like this anymore. There should be equal justice under the law,” Trump, Jr. concluded. “Right now, there’s only justice under the law if you’re a Republican—you get justice served upon you, usually in a negative way. If you’re a Democrat, you get away with whatever you want.”
