  1. Notice how quiet fakenews CNN and MSNBC are in regards to pedophiles Weinstein and Epstein. Democrats are the party of slavery and pedophilia. Cheers from Toronto

  2. But Weinstein and dump are just alike big ugly funny built motherfukers thinking that their money would stop people from talking

  3. Hello Ms. Kilimanjaro.๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ”.
    Exceptional reporting, Mika.๐Ÿ‘โ˜บ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.
    Keep on digging, Mika.๐Ÿ‘.
    ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰Patience democrats, patience.๐Ÿ‘.

  4. Weinstein is a pig no doubt about that , but I wonder how many of the woman now complaining gave themselves willingly to boost their career.

  5. NYS recently made a change to the sexual abuse laws in this State. They removed the Statue of Limitations on the length of time a person can file charges for one year. Phones started ringing at 00:01am the day it went into effect.

  6. May rapists and sexual predators like Trump and Clinton have nightmaresโ€ฆof belated JUSTICE knocking at their door.

  7. Watch "Trump — BBC" on YouTube

    https://youtu.be/sB0IpYuYzk0

    Watch "'This guy was – it was like a predator in action.'" on YouTube

  8. Q.- Why is MSNBC touting Biden as if he's the so-called 'Peoples' choice when the combined average poll percentages of left-wing Progressives surpass Biden's numbers by a huge margin.
    Obviously, MSNBC is just a mouthpiece for the do-nothing cowardly centrist establiemocrats.

  9. Mika Brzezinski's statement "You all created a space that created more spaces for women to come forward" is so true, encouraging and very powerful!

  10. So when does this fuzzy pustule go to the Jeffrey Epstein suite? Let's make sure he has plenty of sheets. That or arrange the same "high security" for him.

  11. The greatest democracy isn't very democratic and the greatest legal system in the world isn't interested in the truth – USA is all about money and power – so I'll believe it when I see justice for the serial abusive perverts, Weinstein and Trump. I believe the women.

  12. https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/730941617918644224?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E730941617918644224&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pacificpundit.com%2F2016%2F05%2F14%2Fhillary-clinton-tweet-you-can-tell-a-lot-about-someone-by-the-company-they-keep%2F

    ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Bill Clinton having a marital affair in the oval office = Vast Right Wing Conspiracy
    Trump colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary in 2016 = Vastly Accepted Factual Statement

  14. Non-Disclosure Agreements must be limited by law to 5 years, non-renewable, and limited to very narrow information — like commercial and industrial secrets in work relations, academic exams, and a few more. They should not be allowed to cover up arbitrary unethical or embarrassing behavior.

  15. Don't forget about your precious Clinton's with Jeffrey Epstein !๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    May also be tied in with this creep that you people are talking about right !๐Ÿ‘

  16. There's something about that ( stein word ) in last names of people ๐Ÿค”.
    Seems to be connected with pedophilia !

  17. 80 come forward, 800 over the years easily out there. The prolific nature of the sexual predator, harasser and serial john cannot be overstated.

  18. both Paltrow's parents are deeply involved in the movie/film industry. For both parents to discourage her from speaking out shows how deeply corrupt & devious Hollywood it !! Brilliant, upcoming actresses including Ashley Judd & Sean Young had their Hollywood careers ruined by this unchecked monster…

  19. Trump election ABSOLUTELY spurned #metoo – Libs would NEVER have reckoned with sexual predation without the backlash to Trump and Clintons in power, NEVER.

  20. Paltrow being "Hollywood royalty" is exactly WHY she was so key to this – she had NOTHING to gain and everything to lose by speaking out and she had the credibility of success and her own connections.

  21. Mika is SUCH a witch – she attacks victims constantly!!!! Her bf, after all, "found" a young pretty dead aid in his FL office, so โ€ฆ.

  22. INTERPRETATIONS…..
    Did I hear MIKA say, infer. that the book '''SHE SAID''' is now a movement?
    If that is true…..I think that's a good idea: women and others step forward and accuse their assailants. Go to court, receive enumeration, etc.
    THAT WOULD BE DIFFERENT FROM THE '''YOU-TOO'''' MOVEMENT which is majorly to provide a huge spiritual connection; a healing process, a vital connection when someone has been assaulted by No Tellin' Who….people that all of us are around everyday and trust: from parents to pastors to teachers and bosses and neighbors and the list goes on and on.-
    ME-TOO is not so much about coming out with an accusation; it is more like closing in, not feeling alone and strengthening….knowing that other people understand how you feel.
    Sexual Assault is pervasive in all societies and in some family households.
    It is so meaningful to know that you're not alone in your battle to heal.

  23. These old predators when convicted needs not only a vasectomi but total removal of their testicles and then a few years in prison.

  24. Weinstein is not the only monster out there, and not every #MeToo member is heard, or investigated equally, especially if you are a nobody!

  25. 13:00 secret affairs? This case was dropped the case and her layer Avanatti used Stormy like a rag too. Get your facts straight before keep pushing left conspiracy theories on your speculations!

  26. PLEASE REFER TO AN EASY READER BEGINNER STORYBOOK FOR MEN : THE HANDSY MAN- BY TRACY ROSS ..READ ON JIMMY KIMMEL SHOW!!!! HILLARIOUS.

  27. Father God, Lord Most Holy, The Great I AM,
    I pled with You to take a stand against these false news media that speak the lies of the fallen ones.
    They try to empower the fallen ones by speaking lies and by pushing the fallen ones agenda across this Nation of Yours.
    Judge them O Lord and put them in their place.
    Take their wealth from them, for they have prospered by bearing false witnessing in their news broadcasts.
    Please remove these agents of the fallen ones and place Your judgements on them.
    Let them be no more, and have no influence on this Nation of Yours.
    Let their voices be silenced, and their masterโ€™s (the fallen ones) agenda pass away.
    Father God, let Your agenda, Your Righteousness be thru out this Nation. Save us from our self-destructive ways. Turn us to You again.
    Father God, Lord Most Holy , I pray asking these things from You, In the name of Your Son, Your Holy One, Your Messiah, Your Judge, The Lord Jesus Christ.
    Amen and Amen.

    Exodus 23:1
    You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness.
    Proverbs 6:16-19
    There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
    Proverbs 19:5
    A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will not escape.

  28. The part that is rather confusing is that some women saying they were subjected to sexual harassment repeatedly, each time they visited Weinstein in his hotel room.!!!.Well. the first time the women may have been surprised. But why visit the same guy in the hotel room over and over and then act surprise by his sick conduct???

  29. Fantastic job on revealing Harvey Weinstein for the TOTAL DEGENERATE that he is! Beware all you dirt bags, times up your day of reckoning has arrived! Try sexually assaulting women now all you fโ€”k wads, youโ€™re going down!!!๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿ–•

  30. Cher said that after a hiatus from showbiz for a number of years she pursued a comeback in film acting. She said "I was sexually harrassed, and I'M CHER!!
    Sharon Stone was recently asked in view of the "me too" movement if she had ever been sexually harrassed in Hollywood, she "I came out here to LA in the later Seventies, not related to anyone, didn't know anyone, what do you think"? This has been going on since the silent film era in Hollywood.

  31. Why is a foreign firm like Israel's Black Cube, composed of former Mossad agents, allowed to operate on American soil AGAINST Americans?

  32. I used to watch / listen to 'Morning Joe' every day. But, this crap has gotten to be too much. This stuff is crap. If you listen to the Harvey Weinstein tape that doesn't sound like the king of Hollywood, or the #1 sexual predator. It sounds like your typical Jewish man, it sounds like Jewish foreplay.

  33. Mika is ignorant of sexual assault and abuse. She doesn't have a clue and should stop blaming, stop putting the responsibility on the victim.

  34. Perverts voting for a pervert in the White House. Nasty perverts in Hollywood, they are every where in the work environment,,Yuck!! All the thumbs down must be perverts too. Harvey is so ugly and gross! He was a scary monster for the victims.

  35. A movement that Bill Cosby paid for. What Bill Cosby did was a crime, but to make him the face of it while these white men are free and doing what they want. Nothing will happen to Trump.
