In the world of entertainment news, the one story that has dominated the headlines [VIDEO] has been the sexual assault and harassment allegations against #Harvey Weinstein. The story has since found itself on the front page of political news due to the film producer being a mega donor for the Democratic Party, which prompted conservatives to speak out, including Presidential Counsel #Kellyanne Conway.

Conway on Clinton

Harvey Weinstein has been one of the most influential names in Hollywood for decades after co-founding the Weinstein Company and Miramax back in 1979. For years there had been an almost silent criticism of Weinstein, as many heard the rumors of his unwanted sexual advances towards multiple women, including many high-profiled actresses.

However, Weinstein's career in Hollywood hit a metaphorical brick wall last week when the New York Times broke a bombshell story exposing multiple allegations of sexual harassment against him. Weinstein quickly obtained legal representation, but the damage had already been done. The board of his own company voted to fire him, despite Weinstein's private appeal to save his career. After new accusers came forward, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, and Angelina Jolie, the story gained ground, with the right-wing media quick to point a finger at Democrats who had been close with Weinstein in the past. For #Hillary Clinton, she took her time in responding, but finally did so on Tuesday by condemning the behavior in support of the victims. As seen on her Twitter account on October 10, Kellyanne Conway was not impressed [VIDEO]with the former Secretary of State's delayed reaction.

Taking to her Twitter on Tuesday afternoon was Kellyanne Conway who wasted no time going on the attack against Hillary Clinton. "It took Hillary abt 5 minutes to blame NRA for madman's rampage, but 5 days to sorta-kinda blame Harvey Weinstein 4 his sexually assaults," Conway tweeted.

In addition, Kellyanne Conway re-tweeted an article written by Democratic State Senator from Ohio, Capri Cafaro, who was critical of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for not speaking out sooner against Harvey Weinstein. "Smart piece by female Democratic officeholder," Conway said while promoting the piece in question.

Twitter reacts

As expected, critics of Donald Trump didn't hold back in pointing out the irony of Kellyanne Conway's remarks.

"Trump still hasn't condemned NAZIS for murdering a woman on U.S. soil," one tweet read.

"YOU ARE OBSESSED. HILLARY IS NOT THE PRESIDENT KELLYANNE," comedian Kristina Wong tweeted in all caps. "Kellyanne. Are you aware of who you work for?" another Twitter user asked, in reference to the sexual assault allegations in Donald Trump's recent history. "Sorry, where did you condemn the pussy-grabber-in-chief? Oh right, you went on TV and called women liars," Dennis Perkins noted.

"Your working for a man who is on par with Weinstein as far as sexual assaults. Save the act," yet another tweet noted. The reaction from liberals and Democrats continued across social media as the political left made it clear they would not let the White House forget about Donald Trump's controversial history with women anytime soon.
