On Sunday, MSNBC commentator Anand Giridharadas appeared on “AM Joy” with Joy Reid to discuss the recent allegations of domestic abuse by officials in the Trump administration.
Last week, White House staff secretary Rob Porter stepped down from his position but denied allegations of abusing his ex-wives. Later in the same week, White House speechwriter David Sorensen resigned after a former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage, which he denied.
Giridharadas began the segment by reacting to comments from White House counselor Kellyanne Conway in which she said Democrats such as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) should do some examination of their own party.
“I don't need a lecture from Kirsten Gillibrand or anybody else who protected and defended and harbored a sitting president who had sexual relations in the Oval Office and was impeached for lying,” Conway said.
