It took three hours for New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to step down Monday night after he was accused by four women of physical abuse in a New Yorker article.

Equally swift was the response from allies of President Trump, a longtime nemesis of the attorney general. While the president himself had not weighed in on the news as of early Tuesday morning, numerous Trump supporters from within and outside of the White House reveled in Schneiderman’s resignation. The attorney general became the latest powerful figure to fall from grace amid the #MeToo movement, and among the most high profile of Trump’s political enemies to be hit by misconduct accusations.

Four women accused Schneiderman of choking and repeatedly slapping them during romantic relationships, charges the attorney general denied. Schneiderman has been a vocal opponent of Trump, pursuing a series of legal actions against his policies as president, and filing numerous lawsuits against his enterprises long before he took office.

Meanwhile, critics of Trump fired back at those who were quick to condemn Schneiderman while defending a president accused by more than a dozen women of improper conduct or sexual assault. While Trump has chided Democrats accused of misconduct, such as former Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), he has given a pass to accused Republicans and allies, including former Senate candidate Roy Moore (R-Ala.) and former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.
