Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, October 08, 2017

What a difference a year makes -- remember when the "Access Hollywood" tapes came out last October?

The Social Justice Warriors of Hollywood, the Democrats and the alt-left media collectively went crazy. Donald Trump was the absolute worst person in the world, for talking about sexual harassment.

But now, 365 days later, a vulgar, obese Hollywood mogul named Harvey Weinstein is outed by The New York Times (of all outlets!) as a serial sexual predator, with at least eight settlements under his 55-inch belt for harassment.

As one of Weinstein's victims, actress Rose McGowan, tweeted out Friday: "Ladies of Hollywood, your silence is deafening."

At least some of the national Democrats have started trying to divest themselves of his filthy lucre but most of the Beltway bandits are loath to say boo about their fellow traveler Harvey the Hut, and I can explain their reluctance to put the blast on him in two words: professional courtesy.

Shame on that conservative mouthpiece, the Boston Herald, for publishing this piece...after all, this is a non-story according to the DR Left.

Well, guess what, people who know how far Harvey's tentacles are wrapped around the Democratic Party are appalled.

But here on the DR, since Harvey is "one of them", they just wish this story would go away.

After all, a couple of Dems have returned donations, what more do you want?

How about a round of denunciation for this serial predator.

I know the ethically challenged usual suspects of the DR Left won't dare click on this article, so I will give them a little help:

This is the same guy who paid $100,000 to Rose McGowan after what the Times calls an "episode" in his hotel suite. Check her tweets for a less vague description of what transpired during the "episode." Talk about embarrassing.

No wonder he was such good pals with the Clintons, especially Bill.

"I'm gonna tell you," he once bragged, "the president and I saw so many movies together. I'm not kidding by the way. We saw so many movies together."

No one thinks you're kidding, Harvey. The only question is, exactly what genre of films did you and Clinton enjoy together?

On Thursday night, hours after the story broke, the lock-step lefty late-night comics gave their dear pal's plight a total pass. Expect an even more complete news blackout on the Weinstein scandal this morning on the alt-left network chat shows.

Jake Tapper of CNN and George Stephanopoulos of ABC have each been on the payrolls of either the Clintons or their in-laws. As for Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press," his career as a "journalist" began on the payroll of ex-Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa, who falsely claimed to have flown combat missions in Vietnam.

But then, Weinstein took care of every Democrat politician ... as long as they were bent.

John Kerry, John Edwards, Harry Reid, Robert "the Torch" Toricelli, Rahm Emanuel, Al Franken, Sheldon Whitehouse, and of course, Elizabeth Warren all took cash from Harvey.

I am sure that these fine upstanding politicians will be returning their donations and denouncing Harvey any time now...

LOL, according to the Guardian, the aforementioned rats are leaving the ship:

Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has been tipped as a possible 2020 presidential nominee, said she was donating $5,000 received from Weinstein to Casa Myrna, a charity that fights domestic violence. Others Democrats who followed suit included the senators Patrick Leahy, Martin Heinrich, Cory Booker, Al Franken, Bob Casey and Richard Blumenthal.

Weinstein was key in influencing other Hollywood heavyweights to make political donations, and he contributed substantially to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's campaigns.

The Democratic national committee has received almost $250,000 from him over the past two decades. It announced it would be contributing the $30,000 Weinstein had given this year to organisations that promote women in politics, but it was criticised for not donating the total of all Weinstein's contributions over the years.

Tip of the iceberg, this will get worse for the DNC.

So, Weinstein is a creep and Trump is a creep. Which is creepier, some tub o'lard in the industry or the POTUS?

Let's see, the NYT, WSJ, Boston Herald, SF Chronicle, Hollywood Reporter, Globe, Mail, Guardian all think it is big political news, so I am not alone. However, most of the Dems and Hollywood are hiding their heads in the sand and hoping it goes away, as is the DR Left.

At least you had the balls to comment on this thread, and call him a cretin, which is more than most of Hollywood and all of the Dems in DC had the balls to do.

Couldn't have happened to a more "fantastic human being", as Michelle Obama called him:

Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced cofounder and CEO of The Weinstein Company, has been fired effective immediately, his board of directors said on Sunday.

The statement said:

"In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company – Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar – have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately."

That should free up plenty of time for Harvey and Bubba to watch "movies."

I'm always amused whenever someone goes off the deep end trying to conflate reactions based on whose "team" is taking fire. The answer is quite simple for most liberals and progressives and encapsulated in a phrase often spoken by Bishop Dr. William Barber Junior, the founder of the Moral Monday movement:

It's not about left or right; it's about right or wrong.
As for myself, I have no need to comment about something I unquestionably find abhorrent just to assuage the you-too-ists who have absolutely nothing positive to add but for gloating and fingerpointing.

I find it foolish to ask for political donations to be clawed back if there was no overt public acknowledgement of the donor's deviancy previously, but it's understandable in today's climate. But again, I hold none of them responsible for taking his cash unless they reasonably knew he was complicit in criminal conduct when they accepted it.

Harvey's out, he's paid the ultimate personal price and hopefully it possible will face his day in criminal court if he's prosecutable. The same as I would want for any person accused of the same allegations.

Yes, as a matter of fact, they did, immediately:

After the video became public on Friday evening, senior Republicans were harsh in their condemnation of Mr Trump's comments.

House Speaker Paul Ryan rescinded his invitation to Mr Trump to attend the Republican Fall Fest in his home state of Wisconsin this weekend.
Mr Trump said that his vice-presidential running mate Mike Pence would represent him at the Wisconsin event.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said the comments were "repugnant," adding that Mr Trump "needs to apologise directly to women and girls everywhere".

Another senior Republican, John McCain, said there were "no excuses for Donald Trump's offensive and demeaning comments".

Ya think they would have had a moment of self-reflection that our POTUS has been publicly alleged to have sexually abused more than 16 named women spanning over 4 decades from all walks of life? Our President. He admitted that he assaults women on tape and yet collects "re-election" funds all over the nation during his ego-burnishing campaign events.

Harvey is a pissant compared to Trump's deviancy and he isn't a threat to the entire globe. Both of them deserve whatever karma this universe decides to ultimately dole out.

Hopefully Harvey's victims can put a significant dent in his finances since his professional career is pretty well toast for the foreseeable future and hopefully longer than that.

Then Republicans all got onboard the Trump train and have been on it ever since.

Donald Trump says Roger Ailes' forced exit from Fox News is "so sad."

The GOP nominee for president called the Fox News mastermind, his longtime friend, "such a great guy" in an interview for the Showtime series "The Circus."

Trump defended Ailes amid widening allegations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate workplace behavior.

"Now," Trump told Todd, "all of a sudden, they're saying these horrible things about him. It's very sad. Because he's a very good person. I've always found him to be just a very, very good person."

Earlier this month, before some of the new allegations of harassment surfaced, Trump expressed support for Ailes. When asked about Carlson's allegations by the Washington Examiner, Trump said, "I think they are unfounded just based on what I've read."

Trump defends Bill O'Reilly: 'I don't think Bill did anything wrong'

In an interview with The New York Times, Trump defended O'Reilly against new revelations that he, Fox News and parent company 21st Century Fox had paid a total of $13 million in settlements to five women who accused him of sexual harassment or verbal abuse.

"I think he's a person I know well -- he is a good person," Trump told the Times. "I think he shouldn't have settled; personally I think he shouldn't have settled. Because you should have taken it all the way. I don't think Bill did anything wrong."

Last week, Trump declared April 2017 National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, pledging that his administration "will do everything in its power to protect women, children, and men from sexual violence."

Trump's defense of O'Reilly was similar to his defense of former Fox News chief Roger Ailes last year, when Ailes was facing a litany of sexual harassment allegations.

"I think you could take it away," Trump said. "I don't know if you could take a medal away or not. It's not the most important thing but I would say if you can, take it away."

Trump also stressed that he was never a fan of the "highly overrated" Cosby.

"I've never been a fan of Bill Cosby. I've never liked him. I've known him; I've never liked him. I think he was a highly overrated guy -- both in talent and in many other ways. And who would think that this would have happened?" Trump asked.

Donald Trump used to make light of Bill Clinton's sex scandals. Now they're his main weapon.

When Bill Clinton's sex scandals were still fresh back in the 1990s, however, Trump took a much different approach to discussing them -- expressing sympathy for Hillary Clinton, defending Bill Clinton and dismissing his accusers, and in one interview with Howard Stern, making light of Bill Clinton's infidelity.

Speaking with Wolf Blitzer in November 1999 in video reviewed by CNN's KFile, Trump said Hillary Clinton had been through more public controversy than any women should have to bear.

"I think she's gone through terrible times," Trump told Blitzer in the interview. "I think she's been through more than any woman should have to bear -- everything public. I mean, women go through this on a private basis and can't take it, she's on the front page of every newspaper every week with what went on in Washington."

more from above linked to article:

A month before, in an interview with CNBC, Trump expressed a similar sentiment about Hillary Clinton and blasted the independent investigator Ken Starr as "a total wacko."

"I think she's a very, very good person," Trump said of Clinton. "I think she's had a very tough life the last few years. I mean, what could be tougher than that? I mean, can you imagine those evenings when he's just being lambasted by this crazy Ken Starr, who is a total wacko? There's the guy. I mean, he is totally off his rocker. And can you imagine being lambasted like that all day and then saying, 'Darling, what are we having for dinner?' It's gotta be pretty tough."

Trump also repeatedly dismissed and at times mocked Bill Clinton's accusers.

In a 2008 interview with CNN, Trump called the Lewinsky scandal "totally unimportant" and said it was "nonsense" that Republicans tried to impeach him.

In another interview, with CNBC in 1998 and first unearthed by the Washington Post, Trump called Clinton accuser Paula Jones "a loser." In August 1998, Trump again dismissed Jones, and said Bill Clinton was actually the victim.

"I don't necessarily agree with his victims," Trump said to Fox News' Neil Cavuto in a clip uncovered earlier in the year by the "Daily Beast." "His victims are terrible. He is, he is really a victim himself. But he put himself in that position."

"These people are just, I don't know, where he met them - where he found them," Trump continued. "But the whole group -- it's truly an unattractive cast of characters. Linda Tripp, Lucianne Goldberg, I mean, this woman, I watch her on television. She is so bad. The whole group, Paula Jones, Lewinsky, it's just a really unattractive group. I'm not just talking about physical."

Back when Trump admitted he'd have a women problem if he ran for president:

In July 1999, when Bill Clinton was President, a close friend of Donald Trump claimed the billionaire was "toying" with the idea of running for the White House.

But Mr Trump expressed "concern" over how the public might perceive him based on his history with women.

"People want me to (run for president) all the time ... I don't like it," he said on CNBC's Hardball.

"Can you imagine how controversial I'd be? You think about him (President Clinton) and the women. How about me with the women? Can you imagine?"

In response, CNBC's Chris Matthews made a reference to Mr Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, quipping: "You might be close, but there's no cigar."

Mr Trump responded: "Yeah. They might like my women better, too."

One is about someone no one has ever heard of.

Harvey has donated over $1M to Dem candidates in the last decade.

Harvey visited the WH 13 times to hang with Barack and Michelle.

Harvey donated $100K to the Clinton Foundation.

Harvey donated over $300K to the DNC over the past 5 years.

Harvey was a bundler who raised over $680K for Hillary in 2016.

Harvey bragged about how he and Bill Clinton would hang out and watch movies all the time.

Who was SNL trying to appeal to?

I wonder if Jason Aldean regrets turning down the Las Vegas UFC gig to do SNL now?

The question on my mind, though, is at the final closing of the show where everyone pretends they like each other, did Jason Aldean snub Sam Smith or did Sam Smith snub Jason Aldean?

We didn't see them acknowledge each other. From what they showed on camera, it seems Aldean glanced at Smith briefly perhaps to extend a hand shake but Smith just worked his way into the crowd and we never saw them say a word.

Paula Jones' Lawyers Are Back to Help Another Woman Sue a President

A group of attorneys -- who helped Paula Jones sue Bill Clinton -- filed a brief claiming that ‘Apprentice' contestant Summer Zervos should have the right to sue Trump in state court.

As the Russia investigation loudly grinds out headline after headline, a lawsuit filed in New York is quietly poised to cause another big headache to the Trump administration.

Not long before Inauguration day, one of the women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct -- former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos -- filed a lawsuit in New York. The lawsuit alleges that Trump defamed her by calling her a liar after she came forward with allegations that he groped her. If the lawsuit were to proceed, it would likely prove embarrassing to Trump, as the case could go into discovery and the president could be compelled to testify.

Gal,

Maybe I'm not seeing it because I'm not a woman, but....there's just something in my mind different between groping, kissing, grabbing breasts, acting sexually creepy and using ones power to physically obtain sexual favors.

What Weinstein is being accused is so awfully abusive and pathetic, I can't really put it into words. It is an exploitation of women and people in general who were eager to have successful movie careers, some would do whatever it took. The "casting couch" has been an old joke for decades.

Come on...admit it. With Trump there is the combined distaste of him as a person and him as a Republican. There's an overlapping going on here. In other words, if he were a Democrat, your outrage would not be nearly the same.

Deflecting the topic towards Trump is going to be an inevitable way of avoiding the conversation but it does matter.

When all is said and done, I suspect you will find Weinstein took being a predator to a whole different level.

And then I read a third of the board in his company have taken a leave absence. The corporate atmosphere at his company made Uber look like kingergarden.

And SNL gave him a pass.

Doesn't that mean anything to you?

As usual, one party is held to a higher standard then the other.

I mean, unless I missed the 15 threads started by the same guy about how republicans and their standard bearer are silent about something their good friend did...

Mrs,

"As usual, one party is held to a higher standard then the other."

Your comment taken out of context could be confusing.

I'm not sure which one you're talking about.

It could be anyone depending on who you ask.

Personally, I like and dislike both of the primary parties.

Sometimes I'm not sure what side I'm on.

Story of my life.

BILL: Weinstein and Trump did pretty much the same think with that while power/sex thing. I'm not seeing much difference If there's a distinction between the two, it is that Trump is the one who holds our lives in his hands.

Any of Trump's predations happened on Obama's watch, or before his watch, and attributed to our last president, the black man would have been skinned alive.

Donald Trump would have led the mob.

Bill, there have been accusations that over the years Trump held parties which offered lots of underage girls for his guests to have sex with. As with Weinstein, they say "everybody knew." One woman, who claimed she was raped by Trump when she was 13, filed a civil suit against him, which she dropped after receiving death threats. It has also been reported that Trump modeling agency brought in under age (illegal?) immigrants for sex trafficking. Is there any truth to these allegations? We don't know, but is anyone trying to find out? If they are, are those investigations being shut down in much the same the Weinstein investigations were before now?

As for the whole "why aren't the Dems speaking up" meme: I'm disappointed more Dems aren't calling Weinstein out for his sexual harassment, but let's not forget no one demanded Trump call out Ailes and O'Reilly. And he didn't. Quite the opposite. He praised both men as being great people and pretty much brushed off the accusations against them as made up. So, once again we see a double standard when it comes to Trump. He gets away with many things no Democrat--or Republican--could get away with.

These women don't claim they were used for sex trafficking, but they do claim they were brought here illegally:

"It's like modern-day slavery."

Trump has had many dirty dealings during his business career, and no one really knows what he may be covering up. He hasn't exactly been a bastion of honesty and transparency, ya know?

Sorry, not that they were brought here illegally but that they worked here illegally.

Gal,

Weinstein is probably going to end up being the Madoff of sexual exploitation.

Just give it and stop deflecting.
