A three-sentence tweet by her former media flunky was all the integrity and courage she could muster
Presidential loser Hillary Clinton took five days to get up the nerve to comment on the sexual harassment storm swirling around her sleazy fundraiser and disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein,” the woman, whose husband has committed his own share of shocking and appalling behavior, stated secondhand. “The behavior described by the women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”
This from a woman who attempted to cover up her husband’s sexual criminality by threatening his victims if they didn’t keep their mouths shut. The hypocrisy would be laughable if it wasn’t so appalling.
And she only put out the statement to stave off criticism about her silence that was escalating from left and right-wing media outlets, politicians and celebrities.
Clinton and Weinstein have been close pals since he donated to Bill Clinton’s legal
defense fund in the 1990s. Clinton rented a home next to Weinstein in the Hamptons in 2015, and Weinstein bundled big bucks for her disastrous presidential campaign. She also headlined big-dollar fundraisers at Weinstein’s home in New York City.
Weinstein was fired from his own company after reports of sexual harassment spanning decades and resulting in at least eight settlements with young women.
President Trump will head for the Demilitarized Zone on the Korean border early next month when he visits South Korea.
Despite its name, the narrow strip of land separating the two Koreas is the most heavily armed region in the world, and literally a stone’s throw from Kim Jong-un’s nuke-armed regime.
Land mines, barbed wire and tank stoppers line the entire border and stretch back halfway to Seoul in the South and Pyongyang in the North.
The White House has sent a team of officials to the border village of Panmunjom about 55 km north of Seoul to check potential sites for the president’s “special activity” when he is there.
North and South Korean soldiers glare at each other across the border. They have not been allowed to cross the demarcation line into each other’s side since the ‘Axe Murder Incident’ in 1976 when two American soldiers, Arthur Bonifas and Mark Barrett, who were trimming a tree along the DMZ were hacked to death by axe-wielding North Korean soldiers.
Before Hillary Clinton sent the manuscript of her book ‘What Happened’ to the publisher, she gave it to Bill to read. He made major changes with a red pencil, but she refused to read his corrections. He got so furious that he tossed the 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.
That did it! Ever since he threw the manuscript in the trash, ol’ Bill and Hill haven’t spoken for months. – Loosely excerpted from Ed Klein’s new book, ‘All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.’
