Kellyanne Conway says Hillary Clinton’s response to the accusations against disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein were too little, too late.
Conway, a counselor to President Trump, took to Twitter to tear into her boss’ former political rival, who has received campaign contributions from Weinstein in the past.
“It took Hillary abt 5 minutes to blame NRA for madman’s rampage, but 5 days to sorta-kinda blame Harvey Weinstein 4 his sexually [sic] assaults,” Conway tweeted.
Clinton said Tuesday she was “shocked and appalled” by the numerous reports of sexual misconduct leveled against him.
“I am shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein,” Clinton said in a statement Tuesday. “The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”
That was the same day that a bombshell report was published by the New Yorker, in which more women came forward with allegations against Weinstein, including a woman who said Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004.
But Clinton’s condemnation came days after an Oct. 5 New York Times report that he had paid several women to settle sexual misconduct accusations.
On Saturday, Trump weighed in on the Weinstein scandal, saying “I’ve known Harvey Weinstein for a long time … I’m not at all surprised to see it.”
