Matt Damon’s PATHETIC Excuse for Harvey Weinstein
George Clooney and Matt Damon sat down for an interview on Good Morning America.
While there, Michael Strahan asks the “tough” questions. Pssst.
Listen to these two guys give the typical Hollywood BS answers to questions.

Can you believe Damon’s drivel?
I paraphrase Damon’s comment: “If Harvey were openly molesting women in front of me at like the Golden Globes or something, I would have said something!”
Sure Damon, like that would happen. Because all sexual harassers do so openly. What a complete cop out! What did he expect Weinstein to do; throw down some young ingenue and start humping her on the red carpet?
Worse, Damon contradicts himself as he admits to learning about Gwyneth Paltrow being harassed by Weinstein.
As my friends at 100% Fed Up wrote:
In the interview that aired on Monday morning, George Clooney and Matt Damon said that they knew Weinstein was a ‘bully’ and ‘womanizer’ who bragged of bedding actresses but had no idea about the level of criminal behavior that was occurring behind closed doors in hotels.
Damon also confessed that he was aware Weinstein had sexually harassed ‘the first lady of Miramax’ Gwyneth Paltrow just before the actress shot the 1996 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ for the studio.
And Clooney is no better.
He gives all the pat answers. He even suggests something for us to all “learn from”.
Oh, we’ve learned Clooney. We’ve learned that Hollywood is Hollyweird for a reason. And that the Hollyweirdos know who the bad guys are, yet say nothing. We also know that women are just as bad as men, as they act as pimps for the male PIGS that infest Hollywood.
Hollywood is the worst kind of “good old boys club”.
A writer for The Atlantic suggested as much. Here are some stats most people don’t want to discuss in Hollywood:
I had discovered acting and filmmaking in college, and the more time I spent immersed in it, the more I liked the person I became. I listened more acutely…was more empathic and imaginative. These are qualities that seemed to me to be culturally on the decline; our culture likes forward-thinking talkers who can turn a profit without feeling too much about who may suffer the consequences—usually poor people, people of color, and women. Acting felt like a noble pursuit and maybe even a small act of resistance.
Hollywood was, of course, a rude awakening to that kind of idealism. I quickly realized that a large portion of the town functioned inside a soft and sometimes literal trafficking or prostitution of young women (a commodity with an endless supply and an endless demand). The storytellers—the people with economic and artistic power—are, by and large, straight, white men.
As of 2017, women make up only 23 percent of the Directors Guild of America and only 11 percent are people of color.Straight, white men tend to tell stories from their perspective, as one naturally does, which means the women are generally underwritten. They don’t necessarily even need names; “Bikini Babe 2” and “Blonde 4” are parts I auditioned for. If the female characters are lucky enough to have names, they are usually designed only to ask the questions that prompt the lead male monologue, or they are quickly killed in service to advancing the plot.
While these stats may alarm some, frankly I couldn’t care less. If blacks or women want to do more in the film industry, start your own.
What I find most interesting is that Leftists know the stats and do nothing. Even when Leftists own an industry, they can’t meet their stupid quotas. Moreover, they seem quite happy with the status quo.
Clooney pulled a “He never did it in front of me” as well.
“It’s indefensible. That’s the only word you can start with. Harvey’s admitted to it, and it’s indefensible. I’ve known Harvey for 20 years. He gave me my first big break as an actor in films on From Dusk Till Dawn, he gave me my first big break as a director with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior…ever.
I’ve heard rumors, and the rumors, in general, started back in the ’90s, and they were that certain actresses had slept with Harvey to get a role. It seemed like a way to smear the actresses and demean them by saying that they didn’t get the jobs based on their talent, so I took those rumors with a grain of salt. But the other part of this, the part we’re hearing now about eight women being paid off, I didn’t hear anything about that and I don’t know anyone that did. That’s a whole other level and there’s no way you can reconcile that. There’s nothing to say except that it’s indefensible.
So it was all “rumor”, even though they all know people involved.
I’m not going to rehash the whole sordid event. However, these guys get no pass. And neither does Hollywood or the Leftists in DC who continued to fawn all over Weinstein.
