Without a doubt, he’s a disgusting and repulsive human being who happens to have donated money to the Clintons and the Democratic Party.
What’s even worse is this is a father of five we’re talking about. A a man with daughters of his own who allegedly spent years sexually harassing and assaulting multiple women throughout his career. While these are still just allegations, in at least one instance, six witnesses confirm the story of one of his accusers who said he shut the door behind them then proceeded to “push her against the wall and shove his tongue down her throat.” That particular incident is especially disgusting considering he did this while his current wife was pregnant and was with him at that particular location. That’s probably why he felt the need to shut the door before he allegedly assaulted this woman.
Then again, we should have known he was a bit of a creep when he married his second wife, a woman 24 years younger than he is. This is a woman who’s literally young enough to be his daughter.
Especially one who apparently has found girls as young as 10-years-old “attractive” enough to tell a cameraman once in 1992, “I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe it?”
This is someone who seems to have made a good chunk of his money exploiting women for his own benefit. Often objectifying them, degrading them, and treating them as objects he wished to exploit for his own personal pleasures. If some of these allegations are true, then it’s obvious he tried to use his power, money, and influence to pressure women into giving in to his sexual advances. Keep in mind, in many of these instances, these women were much… much younger than he was. It adds an extra predatory aspect to this as he seemed to realize younger women were much easier to try to intimidate and blackmail into giving him what he wanted.
After all, he’s Harvey Weinstein, right? A rich, big-time celebrity with connections and influence all over the country. One call from him could potentially make or break a career. So when you’re someone like that, it seems a predator like him feels that he can do what he wants to women, and they’ll let him, because when you’re a star — you can do anything.
He really is a sick and demented son of a bitch.
Hold up, I’m really sorry everyone. My mistake. Did I say I was talking about Harvey Weinstein?
No, I was actually discussing Donald J. Trump.
An Oct. 5 expose from The New York Times reported on Weinstein's alleged misconduct -- and said that the Hollywood titan has made eight settlements with women. “Scream” actress Rose McGowan was paid a $100,000 settlement from Weinstein in 1997 following a hotel room incident, The Times reported. The settlement wasn't an admission of guilt, the paper described a legal document as saying. The Times report also detailed how Weinstein, while in a bathrobe in his hotel room, had asked if he could give actress Ashley Judd a massage or if the star could watch him take a shower. "How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?" Judd told the newspaper she recalled thinking. Former employees told The Times that an unnamed Miramax employee left the company not long after an alleged incident involving the producer. The employees said that the woman got a settlement. In 1998, Zelda Perkins, a former production assistant with Miramax, confronted Weinstein, and told him to stop his “inappropriate requests or comments in hotel rooms,” The New York Times reported. Perkins, now working as a theater producer in London, was reportedly concerned for other women working in the office, and threatened Weinstein’s behavior with legal action, according to former coworkers.

Harvey Weinstein has been fired from The Weinstein Co., effective immediately, following new information revealed regarding his conduct, the company's board of directors announced Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017. The New York Times article chronicled allegations against Weinstein from film star Ashley Judd and former employees at both The Weinstein Co. and Weinstein's former company, Miramax.

(AP Photo/Jordan Strauss) The Times reported that Miramax negotiated a settlement with Perkins and her lawyer, and Perkins declined to discuss what happened with the newspaper. Emily Nestor, a temporary employee of Weinstein’s, said he’d made sexual advances to her as well, promising he’d help with her career, according to the report. Additionally, The Times reported an incident with Weinstein and an unnamed assistant, who he reportedly tried to convince to give him a massage while he stood naked in front of her at a hotel, which left her “crying and very distraught,” according to a memo by Lauren O’Connor. In O’Connor’s 2015 memo, in which she penned several accounts of women in the company and the atmosphere Weinstein’s advances created, she recalled how Weinstein would ask her to meet with aspiring actresses after they’d have meetings with him in his hotel room. She wrote how she felt that she was being used to build relationships with “vulnerable women who hope he will get them work.” O'Connor reportedly settled with Weinstein. Laura Madden detailed to The Times how Weinstein had asked her more than once for massages at hotels and how he would constantly make her re-evaluate herself after rejecting him. “It was so manipulative,” Madden said. “You constantly question yourself – am I the one who is the problem?” Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, an Italian model and actress, met with Weinstein at his office in New York’s SoHo neighborhood in 2015, The Times reported. But Gutierrez reportedly called the police hours later saying Weinstein had grabbed her breasts, while asking if they were real, and put his hand up her skirt. Charges were ultimately not filed against Weinstein, and he and Gutierrez reportedly agreed to a settlement, according to anonymous sources who spoke with The Times. Overall, eight women detailed their alleged inappropriate interactions with Weinstein to The New York Times. The report alleges that various employees were asked to perform "turndown duty" for Weinstein, which included getting him ready for bed at night and also waking him up in the morning. “I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it," Weinstein told The Times in a statement. "Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go." Rebecca Traister, a reporter for The Cut, alleged in an essay about how she encountered Weinstein while covering one of his book parties in early 2000. She claimed he screamed at her for a question she asked, calling her an obscene name.
