It’s been 21 days since the sexual assault allegations against media mogul Harvey Weinstein exploded into public view. Since then there have been new allegations made against other powerful men in various industries seemingly almost every day.
James Woods, the actor-turned political-commentator, has taken one of Hillary Clinton’s tweets from 2016 and used it to point out what he sees as hypocrisy.
In a Sunday tweet, Woods posted an image of a 2016 tweet from Clinton.
“There’s an old Mexican proverb that says ‘Tell me with whom you walk, and I will tell you who you are.’ We know how Trump is,” Clinton’s post read.
Next to the tweet, Woods attached a picture of a younger Clinton laughing with Harvey Weinstein.
“This didn’t age any better than the drunk who wrote it…” Woods wrote.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by more than 40 women, according to CNN.
Last week, another woman stepped forward. Annabella Sciorra, who alleges Weinstein broke into her hotel room to rape her.
Weinstein is a well-known Democrat supporter and donor, giving nearly $1 million to Democrats since 2000, according to Vanity Fair.
During the 1990s, Weinstein donated the maximum amount to then-President Bill Clinton’s legal team.
He also acted as a bundler for Clinton during her 2016 presidential bid, meaning he helped gather donations for Clinton’s campaign from his friends and colleagues.
After the allegations against Weinstein were made public, it took Hillary Clinton five days to address the matter.
In a statement, Clinton said she was “shocked and appalled by the revelations,” and maintained that she did not know of any misbehavior from Weinstein.
When asked about the money she was given by Weinstein, Clinton said, “What other people are saying, what my former colleagues are saying, is they’re going to donate it to charity, and of course I will do that.”
The Daily Wire revealed the money Weinstein “pulled together for the Clintons by hosting fundraisers and soliciting donations from friends and colleagues” amounted to nearly $1.5 million.
Clinton has not been specific about the amount she intends to donate to charity.
