On Tuesday evening, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway perfectly roasted twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's glaring opportunism in one concise tweet.
"It took Hillary abt 5 minutes to blame NRA for madman's rampage, but 5 days to sorta-kinda blame Harvey Weinstein 4 his sexually assaults," she wrote.
Conway highlights Clinton's knee-jerk reaction to exploit a fatal tragedy in Las Vegas, where a man viciously murdered 58 people and injured some 500 others. Before the bodies were even cold, Clinton took to Twitter to score political points by targeting the National Rifle Association:
Yet, strangely enough, Mrs. Clinton was slow to the draw when it came to condemning Democrat mega-donor and big-time producer Harvey Weinstein, who allegedly used his Hollywood sway to sexually harass, assault, and rape young actresses.
It took Clinton a long five days to lend a weak, bare bones condemnation of the donor she's been chummy with over the years:
This is quintessential Clinton, though. The former first lady spent the 1990s shaming and smearing her husband's alleged sexual victims, only to audaciously run as the 2016 Women's Rights candidate who stated that every sexual assault victim "deserves to be heard, believed, and supported."
What's clear: Clinton cares first and foremost about her bottom line and her power, and victims are mere pawns used to advance such ends.
