Okay, let me get this straight…Harvey Weinstein got fired, but America elected Donald Trump?

How does that make sense? Donald Trump was caught on tape admitting he enjoys sexually assaulting women. Did his supporters not believe him? Did they feel he was just making it up?

These are his own words:

“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful… I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

You can do anything you want, said Trump, when you’re a star.

The world has got their knives out for Weinstein – good. But what about our president? Why has he never been held accountable for any of his actions?

I know, I know…we here at The Z Review ask a lot of questions — but it’s only because there are so few answers. For years, we’ve known Harvey Weinstein was a sleaze bag…why is it that it’s taken this long for him to be nailed to the wall. Okay, that was another question, but I’ve got an answer. It’s because he’s no longer as powerful as he once was – for the past decade, his career has been on the down swing. I suppose it just goes to prove, if you’ve got the juice…you go loose.

Donald Trump’s fame as a reality star gave him a free pass amongst his congenitally confused fuckface supporters. Well, that and the fact that he was a white guy. Harvey Weinstein’s seemingly limitless power in the entertainment industry, gave him a free pass in Hollywood. Were they going to start trouble with a guy who could potentially ruin them? Obviously not. That doesn’t make them any less spineless. Color me unimpressed when I heard Meryl Streep speak out against him over the weekend. Yeah, real brave of you Meryl, to step forward after the guy’s head as already been hoisted on the spear. Everyone in the industry knew about this guy’s pervy predilections. Are we to believe that legendary actress, Meryl Streep, was in the dark all these years?

So, back to the question – how could an admitted sexual predator become president? Well, it wasn’t just about who did vote for him…it was about who didn’t vote for Hillary.

All these flaming ‘progressives’ that had their heads so far up Bernie Sanders’ ass they could taste Geritol, have got their collective testicles in an uproar over Weinstein. Yet, in last year’s election, thousands stayed home…or even worse voted third party. Christ, one in ten even voted for Trump! Seems a little screwy to me.

I would also add, the fact that Harvey Weinstein is a member of the tribe might also have something to do with it. Let’s face it, Trump the rapey racist is far more palatable to most Americans than the rich Hollywood Jew.

Now, I’m not saying that Harvey Weinstein should get away with whatever atrocities he’s committed, I just find all this consternation on the part of certain people on the left – and definitely Trump voters – hard to swallow in light of their acceptance – tacitly or otherwise – of Donald Trump’s history.

In short – if you voted for the guy OR you didn’t vote for Hillary…you have no right to clutch your pearls over Harvey Weinstein. Got it?

That being said, I’m happy to see Weinstein tarred and feathered. Moreover, I’m relieved that I don’t even have to be confronted with the moral conundrum of having to separate the man from the artist. This isn’t a Woody Allen/Roman Polanski deal… this is just a loudmouth money guy, who’s been allowed to run amok in Hollywood for decades out fear and craven ambition.

So, to wrap it up:

Fuck Harvey Weinstein.

And fuck the sniveling hypocrites who made Trump our president.

  1. I often wonder when things like this happen with the rich and famous why they will speak up like they are only after it starts but seldom, if ever before. You know just like all the pedophilia that happens in that industry many turned a blind eye to this for the chance to make money.
