But there's no way he could have known in advance that there were gay performers in a show about a great American Founding Father.

when the Hamilton cast addressed Pence after the performance, it was Trump who threw a tantrum on Twitter the next day.

That was the saddest part of that whole thing, that Trump was whining about something that wasn't even directed at him. That's how ridiculously thin-skinned he is.

Yes, it is. How are we going to survive three more years of this?

Why do I care about Clinton or Obama? They're not in office

I'm also curious if they were even aware of the rumors about him. This whole mess is the first I'm ever hearing of Weinstein, after all. Granted, I'm not part of any powerful political or Hollywood circles, obviously, and from what I'm hearing, it sounds like this was kind of open knowledge in Hollywood circles for some time. But my point is that even in that world, or in the political arena, there may well have still been some who didn't know or hear about the accusations, either. Especially when you consider how quick Weinstein was to squash many stories people tried to share about his behavior.

Having said that, though, if they did indeed know him well, to the point where they were having him over for parties and accepting donations and whatnot, and if they were aware of the rumors, then yeah, I'm all for them commenting on the situation and condemning him. We can use as many voices as possible speaking out against Weinstein's horrid behavior, and people on the left shouldn't look the other way simply because he was a friend to them or supported them financially.

On a similar note, Colbert talked about the Weinstein story on his show last night, and in the process, he showed a clip of Trump being interviewed about the situation. In said clip, Trump acknowledged having known Weinstein for a long time, too, but when the reporter asked him his thoughts on Weinstein's crimes, Trump didn't exactly outright condemn them. He basically referred to Weinstein's apology and admission of his crimes, and compared his "locker room talk" pussy video to the situation, and that was about it.

Well, you can't have it both ways, NFL owners. If they hand Trump a victory by requiring players to stand for the anthem, I am done. I will not watch another game this season, and certainly won't buy any NFL merchandise.
