Former campaign manager: 'Disappointing' Clinton hasn't condemned Weinstein

"They thought, "Hey, we've got this figured out, just tell a really awful lie over and over again, keep people off balance and make them think that this will, if not make their lives better, make them feel better", Clinton explained.

Dunham, the former star of "Girls" and avid supporter of Hillary Clinton, advocated for men to denounce the actions of producer Harvey Weinstein following sexual assault allegations, according to an article she wrote for The New York Times Monday.

The former American presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton says she feels a "terrible sense of responsibility" for not defeating Donald Trump in last year's race for the White House.

Weinstein has since been fired from the Weinstein Company. However, he is still listed as co-chairman on the company website.

Camerota noted that Weinstein donated more than $30,000 to the Clinton campaign. Clinton was outspoken on the issue of sexism during her entire campaign, and took Trump to task for his misogynistic language time and again.

Clinton personally headlined multiple fundraisers Weinstein was involved in organizing during the campaign.

What explains the notable silence from the Obamas and the Clintons?

Weinstein has always been a Clinton donor with ties to the political family.

He added, "I haven't asked him for anything and he hasn't given me anything". On the friendship front, exercising situational ethics isn't ethics at all.

"Here's what's happening: You've got to call out bad behavior", he continued.

In a statement, Weinstein did not deny the allegations and apologized for his behavior.

And, there's no question about what's happening here! And the allegations continue to pile up.

When it comes to the Clintons and Obama as less-than-active participants in Democratic politics, that overlooks the fact that they remain the three most recognizable and beloved leaders within the Democratic Party. "So, I'm hoping that will try to realize her dreams for the country and how much better it'll be than it is now". Is the donor class really that precious that they can't be publicly rebuked? But, the question remains: What the heck is taking them so long?
