    Does this sound like a Trump supporter to you?
    The way transgender children were treated this week is an act of pure malice that’s beyond compare. We need to Defend them and the LGBT community. We need to Defend Planned Parenthood and women’s rights. We must Defend against racial crimes and anti-Semitism. We must Defend ourselves against those that would divide us. But no matter how we win, the Defenders need to do it in the Red States and prove our point by being there.

    Right. Sure. He's completely non partisan.
    As we entered the room, Harvey Weinstein was speaking, introducing the president, who was standing beside him.

    "Leading with your heart is the utmost for this president. Fighting for Planned Parenthood and protecting women's rights, this president has fought the good fight," Mr. Weinstein said. "Recently in Aurora, we saw him put his arms around the people that needed him the most." He added, "You can make the case that a he's the Paul Newman of American presidents."

    I don't know why you keep thinking this is a partisan issue.

So the question is, why were people like the Clintons and Obama associating with him. I mean I could see Bill Clinton not giving a shit and Hillary Clinton is used to enabling serial perverts. But you'd think President Obama would have been better about it.
    Like it wasn't an open secret that TRUMP 'grabbed pussy'?? Audio tape and all. So NO ONE who contributed to Trump knew about Trump? Trump who bragged about grabbing pussy, had 3 wives, an illegitimate kid and known to have screwed around on all 3 wives--even the hangar? Sure you wanna go down the personal morality route?

    It does reflect on his politics.

    Like when an anti-abortion politician asks his lover to get an abortion.

    When someone who pretends to be about the empowerment of women does crap like this ... it's a drag on the movement. When it's someone who has been politically active, you have to wonder how complicit these other supposed champions of women have been in looking the other way while they take his donations and go to his events.

    NEW YORK (AP) Harvey Weinstein will be suspended from his film company pending an internal investigation into sexual harassment claims leveled against the Oscar winner, a person with direct knowledge of the decision said Friday.

    The person, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said an announcement on the suspension and investigation is expected on Friday. The decision was made by The Weinstein Co.s board of directors.

    The New York Times reported Thursday that Weinstein has over the years reached at least eight legal settlements with women over alleged harassment. Weinstein said Thursday that he was taking a leave of absence.

    These are all Democrat aligned groups. That's like moving your money from your front pocket to your back pocket.
    Fair is fair and credit where it's due, this is commendable.

    Democratic senator Martin Heinrich (N.M.) is donating campaign contributions from accused sexual harasser Harvey Weinstein to a nonprofit organization that fights domestic sexual violence, a spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon.
    "As soon as Senator Heinrich learned of these allegations, he donated the $5,400 contribution to Community Against Violence, a nonprofit organization in New Mexico," said Marsha Garcia, a spokesperson for Heinrich, who is up for reelection in 2018.
    Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.) also confirmed to the Free Beacon that he will not be keeping donations from Weinstein, which totaled $5,400 in 2016.

    "Senator Blumenthal will be donating the full amount of Mr. Weinstein's contribution to the Connecticut Alliance to End Sexual Violence," said Maria McElwain, his communications director.

    Personally I hope Weinstein never get's another Hollywood deal.

    Amelia is right - scum is scum.

    But I guess the fact that both "sides" do it is not registering?

    This really is not a partisan issue.
    It's not exactly a partisan issue, but it has partisan nuances.

    When an anti-gay male politician gets caught having sex with men in a public restroom, that means more than if it was someone who had a "live and let live" attitude about gays.

    When a family values politician gets caught having an affair, it means more than if it was someone who wasn't preaching against that kind of thing.

    Mostly "both sides do it". But each side has staked out its own particular territory, so somewhat different things will trip the outrage meter.



    Things are all upside down now with evangelicals voting for Trump and 50% of them claiming he's a good role model for young people. I don't know what to say about that. The family values troops are eaten away with cancer. I'll put it that way. So maybe it is "both sides do it". I just expected very little from one side and wanted so much more from the other.
