One of the big stories to break this week came in the form of the sexual harassment allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. In response, conservatives wasted no time celebrating, but former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was not happy with the lack of coverage the story got in one newspaper.

Spicer on Weinstein

In an exclusive piece from the New York Times this week, Harvey Weinstein, co-founder of Miramax, has been accused of a laundry list of sexual harassment dating back decades.

Big names like Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan were just two of the stars mentioned in the article, which detailed Weinstein's alleged behavior that has quickly come under fire, and used as an anti-Hollywood liberal talking point for the right-wing media. In response, Weinstein quickly obtained legal representation, including the curious services of Lisa Bloom, who is known to represent women who accuse men of sexual harassment.

Bloom spoke out in defense of the film mogul, describing the allegations as "patently false," and referring to Weinstein as an "old dinosaur learning new ways." In response to the news, Sean Spicer was not pleased with the Washington Post for refusing to run the story on their Friday morning front page, as he vented his anger during an October 6 tweet.

Taking to his Twitter account to lash out at the Washington Post for downplaying the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Sean Spicer made sure to note that the film producer was also a Democrat who donated big money to high-profiled candidates. "Not a single mention of big Democrat donor #HarveyWeinstein in hard copy of @washingtonpost," Spicer tweeted.

Twitter responds

Not long after Sean Spicer sent out his tweet about Harvey Weinstein and the Washington Post, critics of Donald Trump took time to hit back. "Congrats, Sean, you have found today's Dumbest Take," MSNBC host Chris Hayes tweeted out.

"Because it was a NY Times scoop.

2. You covered for a serial sex offender," Mikel Jollett tweeted. "They broke a big sexual harassment story last year around this time. Do you remember it?" another tweet noted, in reference to the sexual harassment allegations against Donald Trump.

"You kissed the ass of Trump, an amoral con who is in the f'ing White House - grab 'em by the pussy.

You need to stfu," an additional tweet noted. The negative reaction to Sean Spicer continued as the memories of the president's own questionable history with women lingers over the administration.
