Patton Oswalt Explains The Disturbing Truth About Donald Trump And Harvey Weinstein

By Collin Gossel

While promoting his upcoming Netflix special Annihilation in a phone interview with HuffPost, comedian Patton Oswalt drew parallels between the accusations leveled against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein and then-presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2016. Weinstein was fired from his position as co-founder of The Weinstein Company this past Sunday, after allegations of decades of sexual harassment and assault came to light. 

Despite more than a dozen sexual assault accusations against him, Donald Trump is President.

Oswalt highlighted how similar the accusations feel:

You know, how weird must it be to be a woman and hear all the stuff about Harvey Weinstein this week. Then you flash back to last year and go, we literally heard this exact same s*** about our president and we elected him anyway.
