‘Knee-deep in hypocrisy’: Judge Jeanine blasts Hillary Clinton over Weinstein comments

Judge Jeanine Pirro went after Hillary Clinton on Friday for remarks the former secretary of State made about Harvey Weinstein and his role in raising money for Democratic candidates.

Weinstein first came under fire in the fall of 2017, according to the BBC, when allegations emerged that he sexually harassed and assaulted dozens of women when he was a top Hollywood film producer.

“Don’t you love it when the social justice warriors, the people who want to pontificate to us about morals, and what is right and just, [are the ones] who are knee-deep in hypocrisy?” Pirro asked fellow Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday, according to a report from the network.

Clinton’s “unbelievable” claim

The judge was responding to Clinton’s comments about Weinstein in a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

“How could we have known?” Clinton told the outlet of the allegations against Weinstein. “He raised money for me, for the Obamas, for Democrats in general. And that at the time was something that everybody thought made sense. And of course, if all of us had known what we know now, it would have affected our behavior.”

Pirro, for her part, said she found it “unbelievable” that Clinton didn’t know about Weinstein’s behavior while he was raising money for Democrats.

“If Hillary Clinton didn’t know that Harvey Weinstein was involved in sexual assault, then I don’t know you and I’ve never met you,” Pirro told Carlson.

The judge went on to say that the allegations about Weinstein’s behavior were an open secret in Hollywood, pointing out that comedian Seth MacFarlane had even alluded to them years ago while presenting a best actress Oscar award by saying that the nominees “didn’t have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein anymore.”

Pirro: Hillary protected abusers

Clinton herself has also been accused of mistreating women, Pirro said, including several who accused her former-president husband of harassment and assault not dissimilar to Weinstein’s and even a member of her 2016 campaign team.

“When someone was on her [2016] campaign and alleged to have sexually assaulted another staff member, do you know what she did? She moved the victim somewhere else and kept the staffer,” Pirro claimed. “Then he went on to sexually harass someone else at the next job. She didn’t make a record of it. She doesn’t care about this.”

Pirro went on to say that Clinton has “no interest” in being a “hero” for women, as some have claimed she is.

“This is a woman who starkly has shown she has no interest in promoting women and protecting women,” Pirro said. “The only woman she’s been a hero for is herself.”
