Very good question from Kellyanne. Hillary went after the NRA with some ridiculous tweet the morning after the Las Vegas massacre but waited 5 days to condemn Harvey Weinstein for behaving like her husband.
It took Hillary abt 5 minutes to blame NRA for madman's rampage, but 5 days to sorta-kinda blame Harvey Weinstein 4 his sexually assaults.— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) October 10, 2017
Hillary Clinton spoke out against the scandal-plagued Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein Tuesday, five long days after The New York Times reported his history of sexual assault settlements. Clinton has a history of fundraising with Weinstein, which made her public condemnation all the more significant.
When it finally came, it was released through one of her spokesmen. White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway is apparently not buying Clinton’s delayed remarks, placing it in the context of her reaction to last weekend’s Las Vegas massacre.
Conway also shared an Axios piece in which the editors report that Weinstein’s behavior was apparent throughout Miramax and the Weinstein Company, from which the film executive was recently fired.
“The deeper they dig, the worse this gets,” Conway tweeted after reading the story.
Conway is not the only one frustrated with Clinton’s delayed statement, however. Her own former staffers are acknowledging their disappointment.
Also worth noting, Clinton did not mention in her statement whether or not she would return Weinstein’s campaign contributions. via bluntforcetruth
