Hillary Clinton is notorious for deflection when it comes to addressing an issue that she is trying to cover up. For example: her rapist husband, her emails, her knowledge of Harvey Weinstein being a sexual predator.
The former Democratic presidential nominee is taking her kicks where she can get them. People don’t want to talk about her pathetic new book, so she is more than happy to talk about sexual predators. Only, she doesn’t want to talk about the REAL predators like Bill Clinton or Harvey Weinstein, but she would rather turn the conversation to somehow blaming President Donald Trump.
While she claims to be for women’s rights, we have seen her actions scream otherwise. Instead of discussing longtime Democratic donor, Weinstein, when asked if she was aware of his actions over the years, she told U.K.’s Channel 4 News, “Look, we just elected someone who admitted sexual assault to the presidency. So there’s a lot of other issues that are swirling around these kinds of behaviors that need to be addressed.”
Clinton continued, “I think it’s important that we stay focused, and shine a bright spotlight, and try to get people to understand how damaging this is.”
She added, “The women coming forward is the only way that that story will be told.”
Interesting for her to include that last sentence, if you ask me, considering she did her best to shut up the women who came forward and accused her husband of rape. What about their stories? Will they ever be told?

The Hill reports:
Clinton’s comments come as accusations against Weinstein going back decades continue to surface from major Hollywood actresses including Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie and Kate Beckinsale.
Trump faced major backlash during the presidential campaign when he was heard bragging about groping and kissing women on a leaked “Access Hollywood” tape from 2005. Eleven women accused the president of sexual harassment after the video surfaced.
Trump has denied such allegations and multiple past lawsuits against him have been settled.
Clinton, along with the Obamas, came under scrutiny after they issued statements condemning Weinstein’s behavior five days after the scandal broke.
“The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior,” Clinton concluded.
