Ashley Judd and other actresses accuse Harvey Weinstein of decades-long sexual harassment spree

Published

on

Film producer Harvey Weinstein is now facing multiple accusations of sexual harassment that span decades.

The New York Times reports that multiple women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct during his long career as a producer, including actress Ashley Judd.

Judd told the Times that, when she first met Weinstein, he appeared to her in a bathrobe in a hotel room and asked her if she could either give him a massage or watch him take a shower.

“How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?” Judd recalls thinking to the Times.

Elsewhere in the story, Weinstein allegedly promised a temporary employee named Emily Nestor that he would work to boost her career if she agreed to have sex with him. Weinstein also allegedly reduced a female assistant to tears when he asked her to give him a massage while he was naked.

Additionally, Weinstein in 1997 reached a $100,000 settlement with actress Rose McGowan, whom he had allegedly harassed during the Sundance Film Festival.

In total, the Times has found Weinstein has reached settlements with at least eight former employees who accused him of sexual harassment over the span of three decades.

“Across the years and continents, accounts of Mr. Weinstein’s conduct share a common narrative,” the Times reports. “Women reported to a hotel for what they thought were work reasons, only to discover that Mr. Weinstein, who has been married for most of three decades, sometimes seemed to have different interests.”

MSNBC’s Morning Joe scorches GOP senators for following Trump ‘over the cliff’ to election losses

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough hammered Senate Republicans for following President Donald Trump "over a cliff."

The "Morning Joe" host said the GOP had suffered losses in every election cycle since Trump won, and he said the president was a threat to his own party.

"All Republican incumbents who are endangered politicians," Scarborough said. "What bargain did they make that is worth following this man over the cliff? Who, right now, in early June, is on his way to losing in a landslide of his own?"

"These polls that we're going to show you in a minute are just a snapshot of where we are at the beginning of June," he added. "Things can change, but if they do change, it will be the first time in almost four years that elections have broken Donald Trump's way."

Donald Trump is no longer president: Robert Reich

Published

on

You’d be forgiven if you hadn’t noticed. His verbal bombshells are louder than ever, but Donald J. Trump is no longer president of the United States.

By having no constructive response to any of the monumental crises now convulsing America, Trump has abdicated his office.

He is not governing. He’s golfing, watching cable TV, and tweeting.

How has Trump responded to the widespread unrest following the murder in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck for nine minutes as he was handcuffed on the ground?

He has incited more police violence. Trump called the protesters “thugs” and threatened to have them shot. “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” he tweeted, parroting a former Miami police chief whose words spurred race riots in the late 1960s.

Trump-loving Minneapolis police union boss calls the cops on a reporter for knocking on his door

Published

on

Lt. Bob Kroll, the Trump-loving president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, called the police this week on a Washington Post reporter for the purported offense of knocking on the door of his house.

In an effort to get Kroll to respond to the charges that were filed this week against all four Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd's death, the Post sent one of its reporter to Krolls house after multiple other requests for comment went unanswered.

"A Washington Post reporter who knocked on Kroll’s door was soon pulled over by a police officer who said that Kroll had reported suspicious activity on his front porch and that 'he doesn’t want any press,'" the paper reports.
