Patti Solis Doyle, the former manager of Hillary Clinton‘s 2008 presidential campaign, really wishes that the former Democratic candidate would say something to condemn Harvey Weinstein.
Doyle appeared on CNN today, and Poppy Harlow asked her about why so many Democratic leaders are hesitating to condemn the Hollywood giant over his sexual harassment accusations. Doyle responded by talking about Clinton’s advocacy for women and children, and she also said Weinstein’s alleged actions were “repulsive, diabolical,” and that he ought to be thrown in jail.
“As long as I have known [Clinton], she really has walked the walk and talked the talk on this,” said Doyle. “I know her heart is in the right place. So personally, it is disappointing she hasn’t come out and condemned Harvey Weinstein.”
Multiple Democratic leaders are trying to distance themselves from Weinstein after his years of support and patronage for left-leaning causes. However, several of the most influential Democrats are still under major pressure for their refusal to emphatically denounce Weinstein in a public statement.
Shortly after Doyle’s appearance on CNN, a new report came out with three women accusing Weinstein of rape.
