George Clooney 'Claims' He Knew Nothing of Harvey Weinstein's Actions. Sure...
Hollywood elites are often in bed with other Hollywood elites. Who are in bed with young girls who don't give consent. Some of that is metaphor, some if it isn't. For a group of people who claim to be so totally #woke at the Grammys, Oscars, and Emmys, they sure are into groping. See what I did there?
“It’s indefensible. That’s the only word you can start with,” he says. “Harvey’s admitted to it, and it’s indefensible. I’ve known Harvey for 20 years. He gave me my first big break as an actor in films on From Dusk Till Dawn, he gave me my first big break as a director with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior—ever.”
A lot of people are doing the “you had to know” thing right now, and yes, if you’re asking if I knew that someone who was very powerful had a tendency to hit on young, beautiful women, sure. But I had no idea that it had gone to the level of having to pay off eight women for their silence, and that these women were threatened and victimized. I’ve been talking with a lot of people about this (like his lawyers and whatnot) and I don’t know many people who knew of that.
So, you're telling me you didn't know your Hollywood bestie, who coddled your dreams and fondled your ego, was a slimy, real life version of Jabba de Hut? Makes sense. You thought the only thing Weinstein grabbed was bonbons to feed his enormous, hairy waistline. Pleading to be an utter moron in ignorance of your friend's actions isn't fooling anyone. Except maybe the liberal media dullards interviewing you.
Did Clooney know for sure? We can only speculate, sure. But seems hard to believe he didn't. *Allegedly.
We call this the "Covering Your Ass" maneuver. Time will tell how well the strategy will work. Because our friends over at the Daily Wire wrote a little story about how both George Clooney, and Matt Damon (with whom Clooney has made a few films) helped kill a 2004 expose on Weinstein. That's 13 years ago. So.
Bear in mind all these Hollywood virtue signalers who're covering their asses while they try to cover Weinstein, lecture us on how to live.
