TIME’S UP In Hollywood, Unless Your Name Is Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton’s surprise appearance at the 2018 Grammy Awards centered around the Me Too movement, with a video showing her reading parts of Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury,” even though she is currently under fire for keeping an alleged sexual harasser on her 2008 campaign team.


Trump “had a longtime fear of being poisoned. One reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s. Nobody knew he was coming, and the food was safely pre-made,” Clinton read in the video.

“That’s it, you’ve got it, that’s the one,” said host James Cordon.

“You think so?” asked Clinton.

“Oh yeah,” responded host Cordon.

Clinton is currently facing heavy criticism for her own knowledge of sexual harassment during her 2008 presidential campaign.

During her run for office in 2008, Hillary Clinton’s faith adviser, Burns Strider, was accused of repeatedly sexual harassing a female member on the campaign team.

Clinton reportedly knew about allegations of the faith adviser’s sexual harassment, and was alerted by campaign staff to fire him, but instead of firing Strider, Clinton moved to Strider’s victim to another position, and Strider remained on the campaign.

James Franco was scrubbed out of the latest cover for Vanity Fair due to sexual harassment allegations against him. Yet this same standard apparently did not apply to the former presidential candidate who knowingly allowed an alleged, repetitive sexual harasser to remain on her campaign team.

In fact — in Clinton’s case — she received a cameo in the video, instead of a Hollywood cold shoulder like the one Franco received.
