Fonda and Steinem: Speaking of Harvey Weinstein, Republicans are Bad

You can’t teach old dogs new tricks.

Famed feminist Gloria Steinem and American traitor “Hanoi Jane” Fonda appeared on MSNBC's All In With Chris Hayes Wednesday to talk about their foundation — the Women’s Media Center — and the sexual misdeeds of Harvey Weinstein.  However, the two aged leftists couldn’t resist the opportunity to race-bate and lash out against conservatives and President Trump.

On the heels of declaring that she “isn’t proud of America,” Fonda stated that Weinstein’s story garnered so much attention because his victims were Caucasian:

“It’s too bad that its probably because so many of the women that were assaulted by Harvey Weinstein are famous and white, and you know, everybody knows them.  This has been going on a long time.  To black women and other women of color it doesn’t get out quite the same.”

Furthermore, regarding the Right’s calling out leftist Hollywood hypocrites as phonies whose silence condoned Weinstein’s notorious behavior for years, Jane said conservatives were serving up “one of the most ridiculous arguments [she'd] ever heard.”

Unable to resist jabs at Donald Trump, Steinem compared the Republican’s administration to “watching a traffic accident.”  Pushing the narrative of Trump’s (in reality, nonexistent) admission of sexual assault, she crowed:

“That we have a president that profiteered off of [a] beauty contest is absurd in itself, in addition to the fact that he’s a self-confessed harasser.”

Steinem didn’t explain why it’s absurd to profit from a beauty contest, and Jane didn’t clarify why it was ridiculous to recognize Hollywood’s double standard.  And the two just kept being left-wing and continued being wrong and kept getting old.
