Hillary Clinton certainly witnessed her fair share of figures accused of sexual harassment, and we don’t mean Bill Clinton alone.
As new reports suggest, The Daily Beast founder Tina Brown and actress Lena Dunham, were among the first to react once the Harvey Weinstein drama exploded all over the media and Internet, so they did their best to appeal to Clinton’s team- but were left shocked by the unexpected response.
Dunham noted that she appealed to Hillary’s team back in March of 2016, and told her deputy communications director Kristina Schake: “I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point.”
“I think it’s a really bad idea for him to host fundraisers and be involved because it’s an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault,” she continued.
Brown, being aware of Weinstein’s nasty background and his infamous “sleaziness with women,” said she did the same as Dunham and warned Clinton about him in 2008.
No one seems to have paid attention to any these early warnings, and Weinstein even helped Clinton organize a lavishing fundraiser just prior to the elections. The event was a Broadway night, packed with A-listers such as Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, and others.
Clinton’s communications director Nick Merrill, Schake and Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook explained how they couldn’t remember anyone warning them about Weinstein whatsoever.
Merrill issued a statement regarding the matter, saying, “We were shocked when we learned what he’d done. It’s despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage. As to claims about a warning, that’s something staff wouldn’t forget”
Dunham found it rather disturbing to see how much Weinstein and his millions influenced and helped Hillary’s campaign.
“A year and a half ago, on one of the most progressive campaigns in history, this wasn’t a problem,” Dunham said.
It is only natural for liberals to give Hillary a hall pass on this one, and pretend it never happened. As long as Harvey’s bucks got the job done with Hillary’s campaign, that was all that mattered. Hillary herself said that she wasn’t aware of Weinstein’s lifestyle, which is an odd concept if you think about how much time the two spent together.
Way back when, liberals even tried pursuing now-President Trump, who was merely a businessman at the time, to ‘make it rain’ at one of their campaigns. That should directly tell you liberals will do just about anything to get their hands on their prized cash reward, even step over their own values and boundaries.
On Wednesday, ABC’s Good Morning America didn’t feel like reporting a pretty impactful New York Times story. The story explained how Hillary Clinton learned of Harvey Weinstein ‘rapist’ tendencies but cared more about building up her campaign so she could overthrow Trump.
Knowing that GMA is co-hosted by George Stephanopoulos, who worked for Bill Clinton back in the day and befriended Hillary as well, makes sense on why liberals won’t go through with this story.
On CBS This Morning, Jericka Duncan explained, “Actress Lena Dunham confirmed to CBS News how she warned aides to Hillary Clinton last March about Weinstein’s treatment of women, saying, quote, ‘I think it’s a really bad idea for him to be involved. He has a problem with sexual assault’”
Although playing it ‘neutral’, CBS gave the story a 35 second-long attention, and then dropped it for good.
At NBC, alleged sexual abuser Matt Lauer gave the same breaking piece only 25 seconds of attention.
This ought to make everyone who favors Clinton ask themselves- is this the same woman who stood proudly and promised to protect women’s rights?
Unfortunately for them, yes it is.
