When an audio recording of then-GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump emerged in October of last year, in which he was overheard making lewd comments and claims about women to “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush in 2005, the entertainment world went berserk.
One of the actresses who criticized Trump was Ashley Judd, who tweeted, “I never heard him ‘apologize’ for talking to me & others about his family member’s spouse, and especially her breasts. THIS IS WHO HE IS.”
While the other stars’ criticisms are noteworthy, the jab from Judd is particularly remarkable given the news that broke this week concerning Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been charged with serial sexual abuse and even rape by women throughout Tinsel Town.
Including Judd, who — before Weinstein was outed as a sexual cretin and deviant — never said a single word about a man who she says once propositioned her and asked her to watch him shower.

As noted by Megan Fox at PJ Media, Judd would go on to appear at the “Women’s March” in Washington, D.C., in January the day Trump was inaugurated as our 45th president, where she openly disparaged him to a crowd of mostly women who were wearing pink “p***y” hats — a reference to Trump’s comments to Billy Bush about where to “grab” women.
But alas, she had no such public criticism of Weinstein, though she — and scores of other Hollywood stars — were well aware of his sexual proclivities. (Related: Harvey Weinstein revelations prove Hollywood is a left-wing cesspool of perverts, pedophiles, and rapists.)
As Fox points out, there are many more female stars who continue to riff on Trump and criticize his behavior — for sexual comments — while giving Weinstein a pass for his sexual abuse. They are, in no particular order:
— Jennifer Lawrence, star of the Hunger Games series, was recently interviewed after her epic fail of a movie, “Mother,” was released, in which she reeled off a series of Democratic Party talking points regarding “equality for women in the workplace.” She proceeded to blame Trump for the series of hurricanes that have recently hit the U.S. and the Caribbean while claiming to be some sort of spokesperson for women who are underpaid. “Lawrence hasn’t alleged any harassment from Weinstein, although she is seen looking awkward in many photos with him while he holds her too close to his massive girth. It wouldn’t surprise me if she had first-hand knowledge of his depravity,” writes Fox. Could be; Hollywood is a small community.
— Gwyneth Paltrow, who isn’t very political though she did support President Obama, also stayed quiet about Weinstein’s abuse, though she too claims to be a champion of women. She never discussed publicly what she finally is admitting now: That the producer came onto her so hard her boyfriend at the time, Brad Pitt, threatened retribution if he touched her again.
— Speaking of Pitt, another of his love interests — one he married — is Angelina Jolie, another anti-Trump critic who recently penned a letter to the New York Times slamming the president’s travel ban. Writing that she believed refugees from the banned nations were victims of terrorism, she knew Weinstein was terrorizing young women trying to make it in the business but said nothing. Weinstein came onto her as well — and Pitt did nothing. So much for his chivalry.
— George Clooney regularly trashes the president but he, too, knew about Weinstein and may even have been complicit in the abuse because he refused to say anything. In fact, he and pal Matt Damon may even have covered for Weinstein (though Damon says he never knew anything about it), though both are self-righteous hypocrites when it comes to Trump, their claimed outrage over his comments, and how they let a master Hollywood sexual abuser get away with it year after year, with woman after woman.
These people are pathetic enablers who most likely knew damned good and well what Weinstein was. But because they knew he controlled their careers, they chose fame and fortune over doing the right thing and are now trying to assuage their consciences as they try to salvage their reputations.
That’s almost as disgusting as Weinstein’s behavior. Almost.
