‘Trump is worse’ than Weinstein, says ‘Art of the Deal’ author — and ‘much more will emerge’

Published

on

The man who knows President Donald Trump as well as nearly anyone says “much more will emerge” about his alleged sexual misconduct over the years.

Tony Schwartz, who spent hundreds of hours with Trump while collaborating on “The Art of the Deal,” said allegations against the president were even worse than the “disturbing” claims against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

“Today’s NYT story on Harvey Weinstein is one of the most disturbing articles I’ve ever read about dozens of human beings being complicit with & enabling a monster,” Schwartz tweeted. “Trump is worse, and much more will emerge. We are living in a deeply deeply sick American culture.”

The New York Times article reveals how Weinstein exploited his power and connections to build a “complicity machine” to help him cover up “his methodical abuse of women” over decades in Hollywood.

Schwartz suggests the truth about Trump — who has been accused of sexual assault by at least 16 women and was caught bragging about it to former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush — would eventually be revealed as part of the larger “#MeToo” campaign that has brought down powerful and abusive men throughout politics and the media.

“Journalists are behaving heroically,” Schwartz said. “So grateful for the depth, specificity, richness and power of so many stories about the transgressions of Trump, his administration and the epidemic of prominent men sexually assaulting women. Thank God for the first amendment.”

Trump finished runner-up in Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” to “The Silence Breakers” who exposed sexual misconduct — including the president’s own accusers.

Morning Joe’s Mika rains hell on ‘pathetic’ Trump for White House smear campaign against Dr Fauci

Published

on

MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski went off on an extended diatribe on Donald Trump and the White House for attempts to smear the reputation of Dr. Anthony Fauci based upon a report from NBC News.

According to the NBC report, "The White House is seeking to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's leading infectious disease expert, as President Donald Trump works to marginalize him and his dire warnings about the shortcomings of the U.S. coronavirus response."

Using that as a jumping-off point, the "Morning Joe" host called the president "pathetic," and blamed the massive and resurgent spread of the coronavirus solely on the president's bungling of the government's response from day one.
