Judge Jeanine Pirro went on “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning to rip into New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) over the multiple sexual misconduct allegations that have been leveled against him.
Pirro went so far as to call Cuomo a “classic serial predator” who grooms his victims, adding that he should be removed from office due to the fact that he is “out of control.”
“Look, here is the bottom line — he is your classic serial predator. He starts by grooming these victims, and we know of three so far. I guarantee you there are more and more of them,” Pirro said. “He lies. He brought her into his office, during the workday. He asked if she was comfortable being intimate with a man. He told her that she was not too young for him. He told her that she was lonely. I mean, he did everything but actually engage in an act with her.”
“That is the use of power in a workplace setting that is the essence of sexual harassment,” the former New York prosecutor continued. “And make no mistake — he didn’t apologize for it, he wasn’t sorry for it. And to lend credibility to this complaint, she made an immediate outcry to chief of staff, to chief counsel. He knew about this. Did he apologize to her? I didn’t hear it. Did you hear it?”
“And with respect to the other victims, in this case, he said he never touched anyone in a way that was unwanted,” Pirro concluded. “The picture of that girl, the young woman who’s on the front page of the Post, she was petrified as he’s biting his lip, holding on to her face telling her he wants to kiss her. This guy is an out-of-control sexual serial predator. He’s got to be taken out of Albany, and the sooner that happens, the better.”
This comes after multiple former aides of Cuomo’s bravely came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior in the workplace. He has apologized for behaving inappropriately but denied ever touching someone without their consent, and as of this writing, he has yet to resign despite bipartisan calls to do so.
