  • Liberal Guest Slams Obama and Clinton's Silence on Harvey Weinstein Allegations

When asked if Clinton thought Trump is the most risky president ever, the former Secretary of State replied, "I think he is, because he is impulsive, he lacks self-control, he is totally consumed by how he is viewed and what people think of him, he is vindictive". "The behavior described by the women coming forward can not be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior", the statement read.

All of which makes the silence from Obama and the Clintons all the more stark - particularly because the trio's ties to Weinstein run deep.

"Where is Michelle Obama?".

In Clinton's campaign memoir, What Happened, she also called Trump "a creep" who made her "skin crawl" when recalling him lurking behind her during a debate.

Clinton's condemnation Tuesday came after years of links between the Clintons, Weinstein and the Democratic Party.

Several Democrats announced their intention to return donations received from Weinstein or donate them to charity in the wake of the Times report.

On Thursday, The New York Times reported on Weinstein's decades of alleged sexual misconduct.

Update, at 1:30 p.m. ET: After publication, Hillary Clinton released a statement through a spokesman. "All of us should be speaking out against a sexual predator like Harvey Weinstein".

Weinstein also has made massive donations to the Clinton Foundation. "So, I'm hoping that will try to realize her dreams for the country and how much better it'll be than it is now". So, rather than jump on Weinstein, they give him a few days of breathing room.
