Skip to comments.Clinton Aides Gang Up on Boyfriend of Harvey Weinstein Accuser
Posted on 10/12/2017 10:00:17 AM PDT by Red Badger
Current and former aides to Hillary Clinton ganged up on Anthony Bourdain on Twitter after Bourdain criticized Clinton for her delayed response to the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
Clinton received criticism for initially staying silent after the New York Times reported last week that several women have accused Weinstein, the powerful Hollywood producer and Democratic mega-donor, of sexual harassment, assault, and even rape. The New Yorker subsequently published a story detailing how Italian actress Ambra Battilana Gutierrez staged a sting operation with the police, during which she secretly recorded Weinstein admitting he groped her and that he does so to other women often.
Weinstein has donated thousands of dollars to Clinton throughout her political career. He maxed out donations ($5,400) to Clinton's failed 2016 presidential campaign and gave more than $30,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee between Clinton's campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and more than 30 state Democratic parties.
The Hollywood mogul has also given at least $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
Five days after the initial Times story broke, amid growing criticism, Clinton released a statement condemning Weinstein.
"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein," Clinton said in the statement. "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."
Clinton then conducted an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria, clips of which aired Wednesday night, in which the former presidential candidate said she would re-donate the money she received from Weinstein, but did not specify where it would go.
Bourdain, host of CNN's "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," criticized Clinton for her tepid response on Wednesday night.

Another pig! I wonder how many skeletons in his kitchen??
how can they still be afraid of her?
Are those 900 FBI files still paying dividends???
> Bourdain criticized Clinton for her delayed response... <
To be fair, Hillary probably had to wait for the latest check from Weinstein to clear.
Her majesty was only waiting to see if it would blow over /S
Focus group results take time.
Her flying monkeys grow weaker and weaker. Soon they will be flying gnats. I love this.
Dang it, you pay protection money, you expect protection.
How many days before CNN cancels Bourdain’s show after an angry phone call from Hillary?
We are WAAAAAYYY past those 900 FBI files.
Obozo and Holder then Lynch had control of the entire FBI machine for 8 years and weaponized it, ruined it and turned it into a DNC enforcement arm.
They most likely downloaded and squirreled away thousands upon thousands of FBI files on Republicans and Democrats alike. To be used as blackmail materials as needed.
Why do you think the Republicans in power are so powerless?
They have been threatened and intimidated with those files................
They all deserve one another. Liberals are lower than wale s&^t
I can’t stand Anthony B., but I think it’s great that he criticised Kankles for her breathtaking hypocrisy.
Clinton needed to get the polling data and also have the focus group results of potential responses, broken down with univariate analysis by demographic cohort before she decided how to proceed.
especially on the sacred day of her anniversary....
To another sexual predator...
Anthony Bourdain said he would like to poison President Trump.
He is Hillary’s Soulmate.
Bourdain is a flaming Liberal who has slaughtered many innocent cute Animals on his TV Show using Evil Firearms and ISIS approved sharp implements.
Funny how PETA and every other Liberal Animal Rights Organizations have never gone after him. I guess he is the Harvey Weinstein of Cooking.
A couple of Hillary’s torpedoes will hurry along the “suicide.”
NEVER interrupt your political opponents when they're stepping on their own dicks.
Oh! Sorry! I meant of course eating with Hillary anytime soon.
Trump is the President. He committed sexual assault. And he gives nothing to charity.
What happened to the word "alleged" the absence of which would lead to any Republican's being attacked by the dishonest MSM.
Or wait for her speech writer to finish come up with something appropriate.
