It’s rare that I will agree with a liberal on anything but I will this time because Lizz Winstead is over the target on this one and everyone should listen.
Winstead, co-creator of the “Daily Show” and founder of the women’s health and reproductive rights non-profit organization, Lady Parts Justice is not happy with the Harvey Weinstein non-response from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Both families are so tied to Weinstein; they can’t afford to raise his name publicly or the money lifeline they are probably living off of will dry up; Weinstein has been called out for sexual abuse by a NY Times, in which he plans on suing.
Winstead wants Clinton/Obama to speak out against Weinstein but here’s a secret for you. They won’t do that until they are given permission by Weinstein. He’s still a very rich man who has a little power left with a few associations to powerful people still intact. I guess Barack and Hillary think this will blow over and everything will go away.

MSNBC host Katy Tur asked Winstead what her reaction has been to Obama and Clinton’s silence.
“President Obama [and] Hillary Clinton, silent so far. How do you feel about the selective outrage? I could be outraged about Donald Trump last year, but not outraged about this?” Tur asked Winstead.
“I feel it happens a lot with women’s issues and I feel really disappointed in both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton,” Winstead began.
Winstead questioned why politicians haven’t denounced Weinstein after the women’s stories came to light.
“If you took money from this person, because this person had really good progressive goals that were in line with the politics, great. When you find out that this person is a monster, especially a monster towards women, why wouldn’t you denounce it?” Winstead asked.
Not denouncing it, Winstead argued, makes accusations of sexist actions against Donald Trump ring hollow.
I side with Winstead and want to know why they haven’t responded to this huge story. I have my suspicions but then again, it’s just that. I do not have facts, which I really need in my life.
