But Trump had to weigh in, prompted by a reporter’s question, of course. Honestly, why would any reporter ask a president about what he thinks of a celebrity sex scandal unless that reporter was pretty sure she’d get a story? And she did.
“I’ve known Harvey Weinstein for a long time,” Trump told reporters outside the White House, as seen in a video posted online by CNN Saturday. “I’m not at all surprised to see it.”
Obviously, the reporter had to ask in response to him: “I asked him how that was different from Access Hollywood tape?”
TRUMP COULD HAVE SAID INSTEAD: “America has big problems, let’s not waste our time with questions like that.” And, if Access Hollywood tapes were mentioned, he could have said “REALLY? Got anything more important than that today?” OR “So, that was a set-up questions? AH, I’ve got it now. Have a nice day.”
BUT, he had to weigh in on HARVEY WEINSTEIN. STOP, Mr. President. Just STOP.
