Americans elected ‘someone who admitted sexual assault’: Clinton

Hillary Clinton lumped President Donald Trump in with disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein during a TV interview taped Friday in Britain, saying that the problem of sexual assault is widespread.   


“Look, we just elected someone who admitted sexual assault to the presidency,” the former Democratic presidential candidate told Britain’s Channel 4 News. “So there’s a lot of other issues that are swirling around these kinds of behaviors that need to be addressed. 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.”   
Clinton was being interviewed about her new book, “What Happened,” which chronicles her 2016 presidential campaign. In the book, Clinton includes a vivid description of her mind-set during a presidential debate with Trump last year, just days after The Washington Post reported on taped remarks in which Trump bragged about groping women without their consent.  During the Channel 4 interview, Clinton was asked whether she had heard rumors about Weinstein’s behavior toward women before news reports this month detailed allegations of sexual harassment and assault dating back decades. Clinton said she and her husband,had known Weinstein for years, and she was “shocked” and saddened by the allegations against someone she knew as a friend and that she supports the women who have come forward.   


She estimated that Weinstein had donated from $12,000 to $16,000 to her election campaigns. She pledged to donate a commensurate amount to a women’s charity.

    I'm not keen on her but she's right, I've been saying this since Trump was elected. However her husband was untruthful when also questioned concerning sexual activities. The US elected Trump it's their decision to have a fool of a president. He is also a sex offender who should be brought to justice....we will see, doubt it will happen.
