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.
