Hillary Clinton is shocked – shocked she tells you – to hear her friend and major donor Harvey Weinstein has sexually harassed (and reportedly assaulted) women for decades. However, she would rather focus her anger on President Donald Trump, who she said is an “admitted sexual assaulter.”

The BBC’s Andrew Marr interviewed Clinton, and the video of their discussion was released today. She said she was “shocked” and “appalled” by the allegations, and deflected her personal connections to him by stating “he’s been a funder for all of us, for Obama, for me, for people who run for office in the United States.”

She was then reminded of the adage about throwing stones in glass houses, after she tried to score a political point.

After discussing Weinstein, Hillary quickly turned the conversation to Trump, in an attempt to compare him to Weinstein. “We need to recognize that this behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it is in entertainment, politics, after all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office,” she said.

After she added that Americans must stand against such sexism and misogyny, and in support of women, Marr did not hesitate. He immediately turned to the women who accused her husband of sexual assault. Several of those women were guests of Donald Trump at one of the presidential debates.

Clinton dismissed the comparison to her comparison. “That has all been litigated. That was subject of a huge investigation in the late 90s and there were conclusions drawn. That was clearly in the past.”

Marr did not challenge Clinton’s assertion that Trump had admitted to sexual assault. Trump’s statements, though offensive, were about consensual sexual contact. Then-candidate Trump said the comments were “locker room talk.”

The Daily Mail has more on her interview.

Mrs Clinton is in the UK to promote her hand-wringing book about losing the presidential election.

She told Marr: ‘I was really shocked and appalled because I’ve known him through politics as many Democrats have.

‘He’s been a supporter – he’s been a funder for all of us, for Obama, for me, for people who have run for office in the United States.

‘So it was just disgusting and the stories that have come out are heartbreaking.

‘But I think that it’s important that we not just focus on him and whatever consequences flow from these stories about his behavior but that we recognize this kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment, politics. After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office. There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic. It is something that has to be taken seriously, for anyone not just in entertainment.”

Here is a video excerpt of the interview, from the BBC.
