Imagine if Harvey Weinstein were a Republican fat cat perv, and he’d been touching everything but the third rail like this for decades – do you think the alt-left media would be giving all of his political pals the same good leaving alone they’re giving the Democrats?
No, every Republican running for every office anywhere in the country, right down to county commissioner and tree warden, would be hounded incessantly to denounce Weinstein and his one-mogul “War on Women.”
It’s six days now since news about Weinstein’s unspeakable behavior broke, and I still don’t see statements from a lot of his more unsavory, shall we say, Democrat recipients.
Obama was finally shamed into saying something last night about how “disgusted” he was. If he mentioned giving any of Harvey’s dirty money back, I must have missed it. Maybe Obama will leave that to one of those courageous network comedians – Jimmy Kimmel, perhaps, or producer Lorne Michaels of SNL – to issue a pro forma statement.
Anybody seen Bill Clinton? Hillary yesterday had a flack issue a whopping 38-word statement about how “shocked” and “appalled” she was. Yeah, right. But what about her husband Bill? Where is the 42nd president, maybe on 42nd Street?
What’s the over-under on how many times Weinstein visited Bill in the White House? We know he stopped in to see Obama 13 times.
How about Clinton’s vice president, Al Gore? Doesn’t he have a new movie out? Has someone asked him about the $5,000 he collected from the slimy schlockmeister, or is that an inconvenient truth Gore doesn’t care to discuss?
Al Gore knows something about masseuses and hotel rooms, doesn’t it? Surely he would have a statement about his benefactor Weinstein.
Gore and Weinstein also shared a lawyer – David Boies. After the Manhattan DA broomed the sex-harassment case against Weinstein in 2015, Boies coughed up $10,000 as a campaign contribution to Cyrus Vance, Jr.
You tell me, who are the real “deplorables” here?
What about John Edwards, the former NC senator who was tried (and acquitted) of taking money from a rich old dowager to pay for his baby mama, whom he knocked up while his wife was dying of cancer?
You can see how Weinstein and Sen. Edwards would have hit it off, can’t you? Weinstein took care of the ambulance-chasing Edwards, bigtime.
Then there was the former governor of New York, Eliot Spitzer, better known in the federal indictment as “Client No. 9.” Harvey was one of Spitzer’s top contributors, despite their differences — Weinstein enjoyed preying on starlets, Middlebury College coeds and office temps, while Spitzer preferred high-end hookers.
After Weinstein finished sodomizing the gorgeous Asia Argento, according to The New Yorker, she sat weeping on the bed in his hotel room, telling the 300-pound fiend that, “I am not a whore.”
Weinstein, she recalled, laughed and said he would put that phrase on a tee shirt.
I wonder if he sent some of those shirts to Spitzer to pass on to his Russian ladies of the evening.
When Spitzer quit as part of a plea bargain, he was succeeded as governor by another Friend of Harvey – David Paterson. Paterson too spent a lot of time in Manhattan hotels with a woman who was not his wife.
The only difference was, Paterson couldn’t afford Weinstein’s five-star suites downtown. Paterson’s main trick pad was the Days Inn on Broadway and W. 94th Street.
I only mentioned a few of the pols with zipper problems that Weinstein took care of. I haven’t got room to again list the three Kennedys, or the rest of the ethically challenged statesmen and women, the stolen-valor senators, plural, the fake Indian, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chuck Schumer, Al Franken, etc. etc. etc.
There’s only one really slimy Democrat who somehow Harvey Weinstein forgot to take care of, and so I ask the monster of Miramax this one final question:
Harvey, how the hell did you miss Anthony Weiner? What have you got against Carlos Danger?
