After the news broke that New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman had been accused of physical abuse against multiple women, he quickly resigned resulting in a celebration from many on the political right. After Kellyanne Conway expressed her joy in a tweet, Alec Baldwin had a few words to say.

Baldwin on Kellyanne

On Monday night, journalist Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker broke the bombshell story which revealed that Eric Schneiderman had been linked to physical abuse of four different women, with one victim accusing the New York Attorney General of forcing her to call him "master" as he allegedly referred to her as his "brown slave." The news came as a shock, with Schneiderman announcing his immediate resignation just hours after the story broke, resulting in conservatives joyfully mocking the downfall of the high-profiled Democrat.

Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway made sure to re-tweet the story to her followers, while adding the caption of "gotcha" to her message.

As she has in the past, Kellyanne Conway faced criticism for her apparent celebration of the Eric Schneiderman scandal, with several media outlets taking her to task. In a tweet sent out on May 8, veteran actor Alec Baldwin took to his Twitter account to speak out against Conway. "Another Captain Bligh type who registers the hatred/contempt of more reasonable and honest ppl as a badge of honor," Baldwin tweeted out. "Thank Almighty God every day that you are not afflicted with @KellyannePolls 's awful disease," the "Saturday Night Live" actor added.

Conway's criticism

While Alec Baldwin had some harsh words for Kellyanne Conway, the presidential counsel was also highlighted across several cable news outlets for her tweet about Eric Schneiderman. One of the most vocal criticisms of Conway's post came from MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle. "You’re standing with and by someone who’s been accused of sexual misconduct," Ruhle said of Conway's support of Donald Trump, before adding, "Talk about a double standard, you betcha." In addition, fellow MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski echoed similar sentiments.

The outing of Eric Schneiderman becomes yet another name on the list of powerful men who have been exposed for their mistreatment of women during the era of the "Me Too" movement.

Even since former film producer Harvey Weinstein was revealed to have been allegedly sexually abusing women for decades in the entertainment and film in dusty, a wave of allegations have occurred as women have felt empowered enough to come forward and speak up. Though Schneiderman is the latest example, he's likely not the last.
