Hillary Clinton, who has always been a strong supporter of women's rights and women's choice, spoke out against allegations of Harvey Weinstein's sexual assaults on numerous women within the Hollywood industry.
Weinstein has long been a financial supporter of the Democratic party and formed relationships with many politicians in Washington, including the Clintons, the Obamas and the Trumps.
Donald Trump spoke about Weinstein saying,
“I've known Harvey Weinstein for a long time. I'm not all surprised to see it.”
Many conservatives have been critical of Clinton for waiting 5 whole days to speak out. Donald Trump Jr was one of the first to condemn Clinton for not speaking out sooner.
We’re still waiting for your outrage over your dad’s abuse of women, Junior. We’re not shocked.— Mrs. SMH (@MaraLaGoFuckYou) October 10, 2017
It's a bit ironic and blatantly hypocritical to feign outrage when his father has sexually harassed multiple women & openly bragged to such.— Arbitrary Reverie (@hfry37) October 11, 2017

TAKE SEVERAL SEATS, FREDO
Clinton had supporters who pointed out the hypocrisy of the Republicans condemning Democrats for Weinsteins individual choices.
Tucker Carlson actually just did a segment about how Clinton is a Weinstein enabler, from the chair where O'Reilly sat, on Ailes's network.— Lauren Duca (@laurenduca) October 11, 2017
Republicans demanded Clinton condemn Weinstein but— Rantt News (@RanttNews) October 10, 2017
—Elected President "Grab em by the pussy"
—Didn't demand Trump condemn Ailes & O'Reilly
What Harvey Weinstein did was evil, but unfortunately this kind of behavior will not stop until Hillary Clinton is held accountable for it.— Frank Conniff (@FrankConniff) October 11, 2017
