Joy Reid: RNC Blasted Dems Over Weinstein Donations, So What About Steve Wynn?


Joy Reid opened today’s AM Joy with the bombshell Steve Wynn report and whether the RNC will give back his donations.

Wynn is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including claims that he pressured employees into “perform[ing] sex acts.” Wynn responded in a statement slamming the report and claiming this was instigated by his ex-wife.

The Vegas mogul and RNC finance chairman has given a lot of money to Republicans, which over the past day recalled what the RNC itself said when the scope of Harvey Weinstein‘s horrific behavior was reported on:

Reid this morning brought up how “vehement” the GOP was in calling on Democrats to return the Weinstein donations, and so she asked the same thing of Republicans.

Former Ted Cruz campaign official Jason Johnson said the GOP is certainly “in a difficult position” because of what they said about Democrats and Weinstein.

Richard Painter said both parties are certainly at fault here and said, “All this money needs to go back.” Karine Jean-Pierre said this whole thing shows Republicans to be “spineless” and “hypocrites.”
