KAYLEIGH MCENANY (CO-HOST): Do you think we will see a national pressure from Democrats? Kirsten Gillibrand comes to mind. She led the charge against Al Franken. She's been pretty silent on this, not demanding the resignation of Andrew Cuomo. Biden however has done the opposite, saying he must step down. Do you think that national pressure -- you've been around these state lawmakers -- can come down and kind of push their -- force their hand to call for and vote for impeachment? 

Despite being corrected in the clip above, McEnany repeated the claim about Gillibrand later in the hour and added Schumer as well, saying: “A reminder too that we have yet to hear from Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer of New York, who both stopped short of calling for a resignation.”

The fact is that Gillibrand and Schumer in March called for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign in light of the sexual harassment reports. In fact, their willingness to criticize someone of their own party for atrocious behavior is in stark contrast to the cowardly fealty shown by the likes of McEnany.

Update (1:45 p.m.): Gillibrand and Schumer officially reiterated their call for Cuomo to resign.
