Linda Bloodworth Thomason and Harry Thomason were a famous creative team in Hollywood, creating shows like Designing Women. They also were close friends with then-President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, and have produced promotional short films about them.
Linda Thomasen also caused a disturbance at the time, when the Clintons invited her and Markie Post at the White House and they took photos of the two of them jumping on the bed in the Lincoln Bedroom.
Now Thomasen decided to weigh in on the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal:
“As more and more women have come forward, A-listers who are normally intrepid, social injustice sniffers have scrambled to condemn Weinstein and announce that they had no idea all this was going on. Some said this despite knowing him for decades, starring in his films and being friends with accusers who starred in his films. OK. Whatever. I, myself, was a member of a “Let’s Bring Harvey Weinstein Down” lunch club, and I don’t even work in features.”
But, there is no record of Thomasen really doing something about it, and until now no one even tried to bring him down. So, what was that club about then?
“However, I will be the first to admit that clearly delineated moral choices can still be painfully complex where friendship is involved. One of the best friends I will ever have and a man I love dearly, former President Bill Clinton, has certainly taxed my feminist conscience, but always without diminishing my affection. I even helped write his apology to the nation for his own sexual misconduct, was sitting next to him when he delivered it, and believe to this day it was based on something that was none of our business.”
How come it’s none of our business if we have such man in the White House? Many liberals want to believe that the alleged raping of Juanita Broaddrick was just a tale, and nothing more.
Here is what she said about the money:
“And yes, some may call it hypocritical, but I confess to having had no problem warning at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers. A warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears.”
As she said top-level Democrats knew about Weinstein’s sexual abuse and still welcomed his donations.
It’s hard to believe that she told three Democratic operatives but didn’t tell her friends the Clintons especially when Weinstein threw a 53rd birthday party fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.
It’s clear that Thomasen told Hillary about Weinstein’s abuse.
She then tried to get out of it:
“Anyway, instead of re-litigating how we all got here, we might now be better served to ask not whether we knew about Weinstein’s crimes, but rather why we didn’t make it our business to know —particularly we women who have even a modicum of power or financial success. Shouldn’t it be our job to ask the females around us — the secretaries, the personal assistants and makeup artists — “Are you being treated OK? Is anyone harassing you? If this is happening, I promise I’ll stand right beside you.” Wouldn’t that be a sweet world?”
But the thing is women did talk, just like Bill Clinton’s victim talked then, but they were shut down by Hillary and others on the Clinton team.
