A Year Ago: Coordination? We Think So
October 10, 2017

What Harvey Weinstein did is truly horrific, but he's not a politician.

And make no mistake, millions of Americans and the entire GOP support an admitted sex offender.

After the Access Hollywood tape came out (wherein he tells the world how he meticulously got away with sexual assault and just loved doing it) Trump did three things to combat the story:

1) He called his remarks "locker room talk."

2) He attacked Bill Clinton and turned the imminent debate with HIllary Clinton into a pompous freak show with Bill Clinton's accusers.

3) Did he also make a deal with Russia to help him smear his political rivals? The Wikileaks tapes came out the same day as the Access Hollywood video. Coincidence?

PS. Republicans hyperventilating over scum like Weinstein is beyond hypocritical. They continue to prop up an admitted sex offender.
