Hillary Defends the Clintons' Longtime Association With Harvey Weinstein and It Does Not Go Well at All

Political observers and social media aficionados alike are all talking today about the revealing interview Hillary Clinton recently did with The Hollywood Reporter in which she talks about, among other things, an authorized four-part documentary series on her that will air on Hulu in March.

During the interview, the failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee was asked about the Clintons’ longtime close association with sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, and if either of them had any regrets. In typical Clinton fashion, she dodged and weaved around the issue, and feigned ignorance:

THR: Speaking of Hollywood, with his trial in the news right now, do you have regrets about your lengthy association with Harvey Weinstein?

HRC: How could we have known? He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that everybody thought made sense. And of course, if all of us had known what we know now, it would have affected our behavior.

There is so much wrong with this statement that it would be comical if not for the seriousness of the issue. As my Red State colleague Brandon Morse noted around the time the news of the wave of allegations against Weinstein broke in late 2017, the Clintons had been repeatedly warned by others about the Hollywood mogul’s notorious and well-known habitual sexual abuse of women in Hollywood, but those warnings were ignored because money and politics and all that jazz:


Plus, there was the whole “trying to shut down Ronan Farrow” thing:


All that said, a few folks gave Clinton a break of sorts on her remarks about her supposed lack of knowledge about Weinstein’s horrific history:


Perhaps this tweet more than the rest sums up how a lot of people reacted when they first read her quote:

Hulu’s series on Hillary Clinton will debut this weekend at the Sundance Film Festival.
