Kellyanne Conway Blasts Hillary Clinton For Response To Weinstein Scandal

The growing scandal surrounding disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein is already leading to some collateral damage, and there may be even more to come as the story continues to develop. For now, the fact that he has some serious ties to the Democratic party has lead to some seriously uncomfortable situations for those that have benefitted from Weinstein’s donations and fundraising efforts. Among those feeling the heat are former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has been more than happy to turn the heat up even further.

As the Daily Mail shares, Conway had plenty to say about Clinton’s approach to handling the situation during an appearance on Fox News.

“She needs to not be a hypocrite about women's empowerment and what it means to be pro-woman," Conway said. "She's not talking about women's empowerment, she's not trying to help victims of sexual assault."

Clinton has finally released a statement condemning Weinstein’s actions, but many observers feel it took far too long for her to do so. Weinstein was an active fundraiser for Clinton, and he’s reportedly been a huge donor to the Clinton Foundation.

“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this behavior,” the statement from Clinton read.

Conway feels that there’s more that Clinton can do here, and she snarkily offered up a suggestion on how she can move forward to do more.

“She can call me in the White House today – she knows the number, she was the first lady for eight years – and work in a bipartisan fashion on sexual assault,” she said. “I welcome that, we don't hear that from her.”

Call us crazy, but we’ll consider that unlikely to happen. Beyond the suggestion, Conway had a lot more to say as she continued to unload on Clinton.

“On this, I felt like a woman who ran to be commander-in-chief and president of the United States, the first one ever, who talks about women's empowerment, took an awfully long time to give support to those women who were coming forward,” Conway added. “And has still, as far as we know Bill, kept the money. Kept the dirty money that dirty Harvey has given her in her campaign.”

The scandal has quickly evolved into a partisan talking point in political circles. It’s understandable due to Weinstein’s ties to the Democratic party, but it doesn’t make it any less off-putting when you consider that the scandal continues to evolve. Women continue to speak out about the treatment they received at his hands, and there’s no telling how much larger this story will grow.

“What has she done privately in her private life? She is on a book tour talking about herself and the campaign she lost. She is not talking about women's empowerment,” Conway continued. “She spent a month this time last year talking about an audio tape from 11 years earlier where a statement was made by the now-president of the United States.”

Conway - and others - have made their point about Clinton and others that have dragged their feet in response. Now it’s time to put politics aside while focusing on the victims and trying to figure out if there are even more that have yet to come forward.
