Lena Dunham: I Warned Hillary About Rapist Weinstein – She Ignored Me

Actress Lena Dunham says Hillary Clinton ignored her warnings that Harvey Weinstein was a serial rapist

Outspoken actress Lena Dunham has slammed Hillary Clinton for ignoring her repeated warnings that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was a known rapist. 

The ‘Girls’ star told the New York Times that she tried to warn Clinton about Weinstein, but was given the cold shoulder.

Foxnews.com reports: “I just want you to let you know that Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point,” Dunham said she told the campaign. “I think it’s a really bad idea for him to host fund-raisers and be involved because it’s an open secret in Hollywood that he has a problem with sexual assault.”

Dunham, who has professed “an incredible allegiance to Hillary,” claimed Schake told her she’d relay the message to campaign manager Robby Mook, but that she was surprised at the warning.

The controversial actress said she also told another Clinton campaign member, spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod, about Weinstein. Dunham said “the campaign had not responded to her concerns” about the disgraced megaproducer, who’s been accused of sexually assaulting or harassing more than 100 women.

Weinstein donated thousands of dollars to Clinton’s political campaigns over the years, and it took the former secretary of state five days to break her silence following the accusations made against him.

“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein,” the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said in a statement through campaign communications director Nick Merrill. “The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”

Merrill told the Times that no one ever told him about Dunham’s warning regarding Weinstein, and Schake and Elrod “denied” that the actress “mentioned rape” when she advised the two about him.

Last month, Dunham apologized for defending a male writer and executive producer of “Girls” who was accused of raping an actress when she was 17 years old.

    I’m sure the Clintonista’s reacted the same way when they were told about all the Saudi sheiks who gave Hillary $$$Millions were also rapists, pedophiles, and traffickers.
