MoveOn Says GOP Has ‘No Moral Ground’ to Criticize Northam

Monday on MSNBC’s Live, senior advisor and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org Karine Jean-Pierre said the Republican Party had “no moral ground” to criticize Gov. Ralph Northam (D-VA) over the controversy surrounding his medical school yearbook photo.

“I have to say this about the Republican Party: there’s no moral ground,” Jean-Pierre said. “Many of the Republicans speaking out about Ralph Northam, they supported Cory Stewart. They’ve supported Ed Gillespie. I think it’s not the same. It is really different. We have Donald Trump who has shown, like you mentioned, with Charlottesville and other policies, he has really bigoted and racist ways. And he’s still there. Why have Republicans in Congress not stepped up and really made him accountable for the things he’s done and the things that he’s said?”
