Friends, Media Turning on Hillary Due to Silence on Harvey Weinstein

Friends, Media Turning on Hillary Due to Silence on Harvey Weinstein

Obamas haven’t said anything either.

*UPDATE* Hillary released a statement today that condemned Weinstein, but did not mention anything about returning Weinstein’s contributions.

Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has lashed out at almost everyone for losing the election to President Donald Trump.

She has also claimed to be a feminist, even though she has stuck with her husband through sexual assault and rape accusations. Her friends and allies have stuck with her on that one, but now they’re starting to turn against her since she has not spoken out against movie mogul and mega-Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein.

Last week, The New York Times published an article that detailed accounts from many females, including Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, of alleged sexual harassment against Weinstein.

The Weinstein Company has also let go of Weinstein. More and more of the left have turned against him, but not the Clintons…until today. You know, five days later.

She released a statement only after everyone turned against her:

Hillary tweeted this in the past about victims of sexual assault:

I saw some tweets about reporters not asking Hillary about the Weinstein accusations, but Eli Watkins and Dan Merica at CNN reported that the network has asked her spokesman for a comment. They have not received any response from Hillary or the Obamas:

Representatives for the Clintons have not responded to comment for this story, and Obama’s office declined to comment. Clinton did not mention Weinstein during an appearance Monday night at the University of California, Davis, as part of her book tour, her first public appearance since the story broke.

Longtime Hillary Clinton aides have been confused by the former secretary of state’s silence on the issue, questioning — in private — why she has not weighed in at all.

Weinstein has long been a Clinton donor with ties to the political family. Weinstein was one of many from Hollywood who donated to Bill Clinton’s legal defense fund in the 1990s, a Washington Post report from the time stated. More recently, the Clintons rented a home next to Weinstein in the Hamptons in 2015, and Weinstein served as a connector between Hollywood stars and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

Weinstein raised about $1.5 million from 1990-2016, according to data from the campaign finance-tracking Center for Responsive Politics, and was a bundler for Clinton’s 2016 effort, including at a star-studded fundraiser for Clinton in June 2016 at Weinstein’s Manhattan home.

Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show, said she’s disappointed that Hillary hasn’t said anything. From RealClearPolitics:

KATY TUR, MSNBC: President Obama and Hillary Clinton silent so far. How do you feel about the selective outrage? I could be outraged about Donald Trump last year but not outraged about this?

LIZZ WINSTEAD, CO-CREATOR OF DAILY SHOW: I feel like it happens a lot with women’s’ issues. I feel really disappointed in both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. If you took money from this person because this person had really good progressive goals that were in line with the politics, great. When you find out that this person is a monster, especially a monster towards women, why wouldn’t you denounce it? Why would you have shame? Come out and denounce it.

But you know, otherwise you will never have credibility when trying to denounce oh, I don’t know, a president who talks about the freedom to sexual assault a woman in a tape we hear on Access Hollywood? You know, you got to wonder, did that incident that just weirdly happened practically to the anniversary of the date we found out about this, go past America and America gave Trump a pass because we didn’t call out this kind of behavior from Democrats?

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel struck out against Hillary last night for taking money from two sexual predators, Weinstein and Trump, in reference to The Washington Post report last October on leaked audio from access Hollywood. Trump donated to Hillary’s campaign in 2008. From Newsweek:

Weinstein, of course, was a big donor to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and, before her, the Obama campaign. During the 2016 election cycle, Weinstein also hosted at least two Hollywood fundraisers for Clinton in New York—the first, co-hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, in October 2015 and another in June 2016. The latter is reported to have been attended by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker and Vera Wang, and raised $1.8 million.

Weinstein’s donations to Clinton have, again, prompted right-wing scorn toward the former secretary of state.

But, Kimmel said, “I’m not defending Hillary Clinton. Her campaign did take money from what turned out to be a high-profile man who has been accused of sexual harassment multiple times. But not just one of them, by the way—she took money from two of them: Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump.”

Hillary is writing another book:
“What Happened – Harvey Weinstein edition”

How can Hilary criticize Weinstein without also criticizing Bubba? Ditto for Chelsea. What about Huma, her lecherous ex only texted (as far as we know)? Pussy hats all around.

With the Clintons money has always spoken louder than words. #Clinton-cash

The demands for these ritual denunciations are becoming sinister.

The culture of denunciation itself is old hat. For many decades, particularly in the legislature (think Ted Kennedy), they seemed to think that merely condemning and denouncing things justified their salaries. It was very ineffective and rather silly, but I suppose it kept some of them out of real mischief.

But now it’s becoming some sort of invocation, and all the acolytes are expected to chime in … or else. Much like frat boys expected to join in for the college fight song. Or perhaps more like Islamic prayers, required at frequent intervals to remind the faithful that they are indeed the faithful, and they won’t be allowed to forget it.

It’s all very “cultural revolution” … which is a surprise, as I never really expected that sort of ant-farm mentality to find fertile ground in America.

    The culture of denunciation itself is old hat. For many decades, particularly in the legislature (think Ted Kennedy), they seemed to think that merely condemning and denouncing things justified their salaries.

    “I didn’t get an ‘harr-umph’ out of that guy.”

    The espoused reason for these demands for unified censure is because the people from whom the censure is demanded have presented themselves as be opposed to certain activities and, in some cases, have built a career upon that presentation. However, usually, these demands are simply a way to reduce the stature of the person being requested to publicly proclaim their opposition of such actions. It is political, with a small “p”. However, most of the censure is delivered for totally selfish, self-centered reasons.

    In the case of HRC, she is receiving only mild support for her delay in coming forth with a statement on the subject. And, the statement fell short of condemning Weinstein, while “praising” the strength of those women who claim to have been victimized but stood up to Wienstein. In other words, it was totally self serving. Also, we now have a number of people, who were either close associates of Weinstein or presented themselves as such, who are losing no time in censuring Weinstein’s behavior while steadfastly denying any knowledge, or even suspicion, of his behavior. Again, totally self serving. Even the women who are claiming to have been victimized, allowed it to continue to further their own well being. Some settled for large sums of money. Some simply let it all slide. Until now. Now they are lining up to become part of the stable of Weinstein victims. Again, it is self serving. But, all of them spin this to make themselves look heroic.

It is also interesting that Jimmy the Kimmel has an opinion on this topic (or anything else, for that matter), when he practically owes his career to Howard Stern.

Hey, it takes time to nuke hours of YouTube videos, shred tons of documents, and bribe/convince hundreds of people that Harvey was not anywhere near the Clinton campaigns. Also, there are all the newspaper articles and tv bits that need written to carefully airbrush any ‘Harvey’ away from Clinton’s multiple connections.

Hillary: Weinstein was practically a stranger to our family.
Aide: So does that mean we can reassign his parking spot out in front of the house?
Hillary: Hush!

Very awkward position for Hilary… how can she denounce Harvey while she remains married to Bill whose track record is as deplorable as Harvey’s?

American Human | October 10, 2017 at 12:32 pm

It is interesting that Lizz Winstead mentions Trump as a “sexual predator” based on the Access Hollywood tape yet all he did was talk about it, he didn’t do anything. Every woman who came out with some talk of Trump sexual assault last year was shown to be nothing more than talk.
She also doesn’t mention Bill Clinton, the most world’s most famous of sexual predators that Hillary is actually married to.

It is like trying to pick up an old well-used bar of soap from the floor in a shower to try and pin a label or morality on a Demorat. They have a steel curtain when it comes to their unity against Trump or conservatives but that same curtain for their ethics is a flimsy see-through gossamer with no substance.

The Dems/Progs/Leftists have now and always have had problems with reality. So much of what they advocate cannot exist in the real world without suspending truth. Men are women, women are men, never mind biology, communism really will work, Hillary is really the smartest woman in the world. They are just are not honest with themselves or their constituency.

strange how prog’s bring Trump into this but forget Mr. Clinton…

    Obamas and the Hillary are a Week Late, and Millions of Dollars Short (money they should return).

Nice photo of four Democrats

If I truly didn’t know what a piece of shit Harvey was, and my daughter interned for him, once I found out what he actually is there’s a very good chance he’d be unable to assault anyone else ever again.

#JustSayin

Interesting to speculate on how this would have played out if Hill had been elected. Would the NYT have published the story?

Hillary Clinton is probably the only woman Weinstein didn’t sexually harass. (Shows you he at least has taste.)

From FoxNews:
Weinstein ties to Clinton, Obama run deep:

What a bunch of comical liberal hypocrites. Clowns, all of them.

    Meantime, this is fun:

    “Edward Klein reveals that Hillary Clinton’s finger-pointing book, “What Happened” — which is chock-full of excuses for her shocking election loss to Donald Trump — was tossed by Bill Clinton in a trash can and is heartsick over his wife’s current blame-game book tour.

    “Before Hillary sent the manuscript to her publisher, she gave it to Bill to read, and he made major changes with a red pencil,” said a close Clinton family friend. “But she refused to even read his corrections, and he got so furious that he tossed the entire manuscript into the garbage.

    “He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities in a person who aspired to be a world leader,” the friend continued.

    “He hated the title because calling it ‘What Happened’ would only make people say, ‘You lost.’ He urged her to postpone the pub date and rewrite the book, but she yelled at him and said, ‘The book is finished and that’s how it’s going to be published.’ ”

    “Since their fight last summer over the book, Bill’s negative feelings about Hillary’s memoir have grown even more intense as she’s used her book tour to blame her loss on Russian hackers, former FBI Director James Comey and women who didn’t vote for her.

    “Klein writes in his upcoming book that Bill warned Hillary a month before the election that she was losing and that she needed to campaign in the Rust Belt states.

    “She told him he was delusional,” Klein writes. (!!!!!!)

    “Bill’s criticism — and what Hillary sees as his lack of sympathy — has driven a wedge between them,” the friend said. “They haven’t been speaking for months. They’ve been communicating through friends and lawyers.”

    Another genius clinton didn’t take advice from:

    Their old Hollywood buddy Steven Spielberg could supply Hillary with acting coaches to help her when she had to give a speech.

    Hillary didn’t think she needed help (re Bill Clinton’s advice she seek Steven Spielberg’s help in becoming more ‘likeable’):

    “I get $250,000 to give a speech,” she said, according to one of her friends, “and these Hollywood jackasses are going to tell me how to do it!”

The Obama’s are in a much tougher spot….. the stories were out there and they let their underaged daughter become involved in his circle…. once she turned 18, it’s her choices, but before then her parents are part of the story.

Hillary’s first draft for her tweet today …

“I did not have sex with that Weinstein!”

New book, “The Priapic Progressive” by Wiener, Weinstein, Spitzer, and Clinton.
