Lena Dunham warned Clinton aides that Weinstein was a rapist

So the faux-feminist knew about Weinstein yet said nothing publicly. Such a brave womyn.

From Yahoo: Harvey Weinstein was discussing a new documentary TV show with Hillary Clinton’s team the month before he was exposed as an alleged serial sexual predator—and despite her team having been warned about him—according to a new report.

The New York Times published a detailed account on Tuesday, based on nearly 200 interviews, that describes the network of complicity surrounding the disgraced movie mogul. It largely covers how assistants, journalists, and agents helped Weinstein target young actresses and cover up his alleged misconduct.

But the article also details Weinstein’s long-running association with Bill and Hillary Clinton, for whom he raised funds and donated cash. It’s not clear whether allegations of his sexual activities reached the Clintons themselves, but the actress and writer Lena Dunham said she warned Hillary Clinton’s deputy communications director, Kristina Schake, in 2016 that Weinstein was a rapist and that this would come out at some point.

Tina Brown, the veteran journalist and publisher, also said she warned Clinton’s team during the 2008 presidential race, saying it was unwise for the candidate to associate with Weinstein.

“We were shocked when we learned what he’d done,” Clinton communications director Nick Merrill told the Times “It’s despicable behavior, and the women that have come forward have shown enormous courage. As to claims about a warning, that’s something staff wouldn’t forget… Only [Dunham] can answer why she would tell them instead of those who could stop him.”

According to the Times, Weinstein was emailing with Clinton lawyer Robert Barnett in September this year, discussing distribution rights for “a documentary television show he was working on with Hillary Clinton.”

Other fresh details include Gwyneth Paltrow’s allegation that Weinstein falsely told people she had slept with him, suggesting that for other actresses who followed suit, it would be “the best thing you can do for your career now.”

Apart from that, the article largely expands on what has emerged over the past few months: that Weinstein got people to dig up dirt on women who might report his misconduct, and that his business associates regularly suppressed information on his behalf and tolerated his behavior.

It also shows Weinstein called in favors among friends in the tabloid press, such as The National Enquirer, to run hit pieces on his potential accusers.

Backtracking to save her feminazi status: Lena Dunham apologizes for defending accused rapist

Lena Dunham: Learning to live and die by her politics

Too little, too late Lena. Course backtracking is par for the course of one who admitted to experimenting with her six-year younger sister’s vagina.

From NY Post: Lena Dunham has reversed course, and apologized for her initial defense of Murray Miller, the “Girls” writer accused of sexual assault by actress Aurora Perrineau.

When news of the accusations broke on Friday, Dunham — and “Girls” co-showrunner Jenni Konner — issued a statement standing by Miller. “While our first instinct is to listen to every woman’s story, our insider knowledge of Murray’s situation makes us confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3% of assault cases that are misreported every year,” they said in a statement.

But her defense of Miller provoked backlash on social media, with many pointing to an August tweet of Dunham’s, where she wrote: “Things women do lie about: what they ate for lunch. Things women don’t lie about: rape.

Wrote Asia Argento, “You wrote me an email of support a few weeks ago, and now you defend a rapist? WTF @lenadunham?”

In a lengthy statement posted Saturday on Twitter, Dunham apologized for her initial defense of Murray. “Every woman who comes forward deserves to be heard, fully and completely, and our relationship with the accused should not be part of the calculation anyone makes when examining her case,” she wrote.

Perrineau has filed a police report accusing Miller of sexual assault, and the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the case. Miller, through his lawyer, has denied the allegations. News of the assault was first reported by The Wrap.

Read her full statement below:

“Every woman who comes forward deserves to be heard, fully and completely, and our relationship with the accused should not be part of the calculation anyone makes when examining her case. Every person and every feminist should be required to hear her. Under patriarchy, ‘I believe you’ is essential. Until we are all believed, none of us will be believed. We apologize to any women who have been disappointed.

As feminists, we live and die by our politics, and believing women is the first choice we make every single day when we wake up. Therefore I never thought I would issue a statement publically (sic) supporting someone accused of sexual assault, but I naively believed it was important to share my perspective on my friend’s situation as it has transpired behind the scenes over the last few months. I now understand that it was absolutely the wrong time to come forward with such a statement and I am so sorry. We have been given the gift of powerful voices and by speaking out we were putting our thumb on the scale and it was wrong. We regret this decision with every fiber of our being.

Girl, no: Lena Dunham contemplating a movie of Hillary’s memoir

Your womyn lost. Get over it and move on.

From Hollywood Reporter: Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s Lenny Letter celebrated its two-year anniversary earlier this month, a span which has featured stories from Jennifer Lawrence, Gloria Steinem, America Ferrera and model Ashley Graham. But the duo is focused now on digesting the story of one Hillary Clinton in her new book What Happened.

Dunham has to get her surroundings set first. “We will for sure read it,” Dunham tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s something where I need to get into bed with a hot water bottle and read it; it’s not like a casual train read for me.”

The reason why she craves distraction-free time to consume Clinton’s campaign tome, which moved more than 300,000 copies in its first week across all platforms, is because Dunham stumped hard for the Democratic nominee. “After you work on the campaign for 18 months and invest yourself in the way we did, it’s something you want to read when you have time to reflect on it.”

When queried on whether the book would make a good TV or film adaptation, Dunham jokes, “Great question slash suggestion,” with Konner adding, “Call HBO; we’ll have to see if Danny Strong is available.” Strong penned 2012’s Game Change about Sarah Palin joining the John McCain 2008 presidential campaign.

Libtard Lena Dunham to airline travelers: “Watch out for me, because I see and hear all”

lena dunham4

Lena Dunham: On the lookout for ya…

I’d love to run into this womyn at an airport, especially if I’m wearing my “deplorable” or Second Amendment t-shirt. Bring it on girl!

From Fox News: Airline employees and travelers beware: Lena Dunham is watching you like a hawk.

On Wednesday afternoon, the actress and “Girls” creator took to Instagram to share a short message from what appeared to be the security gate at an unknown airport. “I’m at the airport. And I think people now know, when I’m at the airport, they have to f—ing watch out for me, because I hear and I see all.”

It’s unclear which “people” Dunham is referring to in the Instagram story. However, Dunham did make headlines during an early August airport incident, in which she accused two American Airlines employees of engaging in “transphobic talk” at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

On August 3, Dunham had been waiting on a delayed flight when she claimed to have overheard the AA flight attendants say “trans kids are a trend,” and that they would “never accept a trans kid and transness is gross.”

She followed up by tweeting her complaints directly to American Airlines, which launched an investigation into the matter. Ultimately, though, a representative for American Airlines told Fox News that they were “unable to substantiate” any of Dunham’s allegations.

At the time, ABC News also reported that Dunham was flying out of JFK’s Terminal 4 when she claimed to have overheard the AA employees, even though American Airlines operates out of Terminal 8. Dunham declined to comment on the matter.

Nevertheless, American Airlines issued a statement following the incident, stressing that “inclusion and diversity is a way of life” at the company. “Every day, our team members work to make American a place where people of all generations, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religious affiliations and backgrounds feel welcome and valued,” the airline added.

Concerning her latest Instagram story, Dunham didn’t call out any specific employee over his/her alleged behavior. She did, however, point out that another passenger was bringing his pet monkey on the flight. “There’s also a literal monkey on my flight,” said Dunham after sharing footage of a fellow airline traveler carrying the small primate on his shoulders. “There’s a monkey on my flight.”

Street artist’s Facebook page shut down because of “hate speech” aimed at Zuckerberg

fck zuck

Libtards will find a way to label anything as “hate speech” if it offends their sensibilities.

From Hollywood Reporter: “F*ck Zuck 2020” posters, the symbol after the “F” being a middle finger, were hung in various California cities.

The work of a conservative street artist known for skewering the liberal politics of celebrities and corporations has been deemed “hate speech” by Facebook, which shut his page down on Sunday.

The notice comes just days after the artist known as Sabo attacked Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg with posters disparaging his alleged presidential aspirations. “F*ck Zuck 2020” read the posters, the symbol after the “F” being a middle finger. They were hung in the dead of night last week in various California cities.

“Your page has been unpublished for using hate speech,” read the message at the Unsavory Agents fan page run by Sabo. Sabo is the artist’s pen name and Unsavory Agents is the name of his website and business where his artwork is sold.

Sabo last struck on Friday when he plastered fake ads and posters around Google and YouTube offices in Venice Calif. Those ads, some as large as 30 square feet and some plastered onto bus stop benches, ridiculed Google as a place that is hostile to free thinkers, a reference to the recent firing of an employee who penned a 3,000 word memo to co-workers critical of his employer’s focus on diversity in its hiring practices.

Sabo has also created disparaging street art aimed at Hillary Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lena Dunham, Cher and many more.

All of it is politically incorrect, Sabo freely acknowledges, but not “hate” worthy of censorship.

While Facebook wasn’t specific as to what it objected to, Sabo assumes it is retribution for his attack on Zuckerberg. Though Facebook may also have objected to recent posters featuring commentary on the Black Lives Matter political movement. Those faux ads, made to look like a genuine movie poster for War for the Planet of the Apes, feature the image of a well-armed ape on horseback with the text: “BLM: Kill Whitey.”

Then again, it could be a host of things that Facebook doesn’t like, considering Sabo has demeaned progressive sacred cows like climate change, affirmative action, transgenderism and much more.

But even though it’s not the first time Facebook has tried to correct his behavior, Sabo is convinced his banishment this time has something to do with Facebook’s leader.

“It took a week, but it finally came down,” Sabo tells THR. “Zuckerberg isn’t only a thief, he’s thin-skinned.”

Facebook didn’t immediately return a request for comment on Sunday.

Malia Obama, strung out on drugs, taken from music fest in golf cart

Malia, Obama’s elder daughter, 19, had a privileged education in D.C.’s élite Sidwell Friends private school.

In the summer before she graduated from high school, her parents thought it appropriate for Malia to intern on Lena Dunham’s HBO show Girls — the edifying show that depicted naked sex scenes, including a man eating a woman’s anus.

After graduating from high school, Malia is notable for only one thing — making a public spectacle of herself at music fests and clubs, high on booze, marijuana, or some other drug.

A year ago, Malia twerked and exposed her butt at a Lolapalooza music festival.

The latest incident took place in Chicago on Friday night, August 5, 2017, at another Lolapalooza, where she threw herself onto the ground, writhing and banging her head.

TMZ reports that “looking kind of dazed,” Malia “needed a lift at the end of the night — as in a golf cart to take her out of the show.”

By the way, have any of you seen the Obamas as a family since they left the White House?

Obama has been vacationing non stop on billionaires’ yachts, without Mooch; she was sighted coming out of a health club. I haven’t even seen pics of the two together. And what happened to the younger daughter, Sasha, 16?

Malia’s and Sasha’s contract as Barry and Big Mike’s fake daughters must have expired. See:

Lena Dunham is selling clothes, including the dress she wore when Hillary lost – proceeds go to baby butchers Planned Parenthood

Lena Dunham and Lady Gag on the night Hillary lost to President Trump

I can only image the smells on these items. YUCK.

From Yahoo: Lena Dunham will be auctioning off the contents of her closet — and the proceeds of the sales will benefit Planned Parenthood. The New York Times reports that the 31-year-old actress will be listing 169 pieces from her wardrobe at the online consignment shop the RealReal, beginning on Monday.

While the RealReal takes a 30 percent cut of every sale, Dunham will be donating the entirety of her 70 percent profit to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The decision, she explained, came from a need to let go of the physical pieces that were simply not worth holding on to for the sake of memory.

Dunham told The NYT, “I realized I had been carrying around a lot of crap, both internally and externally.” She continued, “I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with a reproductive illness, I may end up with an adopted son, I may end up with a daughter who doesn’t identify with her gender at birth. You can’t live for the future that does not yet exist. I have to take all this good fashion fortune I’ve had and spread it.”

Dunham’s clothing selection runs the gamut: There are epic red-carpet dresses, once-favorite vintage tees from off-duty days, and even items once worn on screen by her Girls character, Hannah Horvath. The sale is not only special because of its charitable nod but also for its personalized touch, as each item will come with a letter from Dunham explaining the item’s provenance and significance.

Some even come with the same sentiment from the designer him- or herself. The NYT exemplifies her 2013 Golden Globes gown from Zac Posen, writing, “Buy the Zac Posen gown she wore to the 2013 Golden Globes and you will hear about how she hyperventilated while wearing it, and had to be removed from it by Glenn Close and a pair of nail scissors.”

The pieces range in size from a 4 to a 12 and up. Prices begin at $35 (for ASOS pumps) and rise up to nearly $4,000 (for her Elizabeth Kenney Met Gala gown from this past year).

A longtime supporter of women’s rights, including the work of Planned Parenthood, Dunham told The NYT that “It’s a very, very challenging moment to be a woman in America. Planned Parenthood’s never been more essential. The work that I’ve done with them has really become front and center to my life, really as important to me as my art in a lot of ways.

From Twitchy: “One particular item for sale is evidence of the soul-crushing pain Dunham experienced the night Hillary Clinton lost.
