After waiting a week to address the sexual assault allegations against Democrat mega-donor Harvey Weinstein, Hillary Clinton decided to politicize the explosive allegations.
How, you might wonder? Given that Hillary spoke highly of the man, took millions of dollars fron him, and was pictured with him on countless occasions, you’d think it would be hard for her to spin the controversy. But don’t underestimate how creative a woman who has blamed a total of ten million different causes on her presidential defeat (OK – I’m exaggerating, but not much), and still can’t figure out “what happened.”
Weinstein is a serial sexual predator. Why does the DNC want to keep 90% of his $$? And the Clinton Foundation too? https://t.co/NUEh9LFOcW

Rather than do anything meaningful with the money that she’s received from Weinstein over the years, she said on CNN that “I give 10 percent of my income to charity every year, this will be part of that.” She actually is telling the truth, by the way, but there’s a catch. Her 2015 tax returns did show that she and Bill donated 9.8 percent of their income to charity, nearly all of which was to the Clinton Foundation, which is a pretty smart way to reduce your taxable income by simply moving it from one pocket to another.
And then, making things political, she said in a separate interview with the BBC that “This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment [or] politics. After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office. There has to be a recognition that we must stand against the kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic.”
That’s rich, given who her husband is, and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was quick to fire back against the remark.
As the Washington Examiner reported, “There was a sexual assaulter in the White House. He was called Bill Clinton,” Lewandowski said. “That’s the sexual assaulter she should be talking about in the White House.
When asked by the BBC whether she dismissed the Bill Clinton accusers Trump invited to the second debate, Hillary Clinton said she didn’t think so.
“That had all been litigated. That was the subject of a huge investigation, as you might recall, in the late 90s. There were conclusions drawn and that was clearly in the past,” she said.
“Listen and believe, unless inconvenient” is Hillary’s motto in regards to sexual assault, apparently.

You know, for all the minuscule individual factors on which Hillary blames her loss, they’re nothing in comparison to the fact that nearly all media coverage of Trump during the election was negative, and he had progressive crazies like Hillary accusing him of sexual assault.
Had it been Hillary who faced those circumstances, you and I both know she’d never stop complaining about it.
