Yes, Donald Trump somehow thinks he can take the high road when it comes to Harvey Weinstein and the allegations against him of sexual harassment.
In statements outside the White House, Trump said that he's "known Harvey Weinstein for a long time," and that he's "not at all surprised to see it." When asked how anything of what Weinstein did or said was different from the Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women, he said it was - wait for it - "locker room talk."
Locker room talk. Here's the clip.
So, let's do a quick rundown on Donald Trump's history of sexual assault allegations. Trump's first wife, Ivana, said that he had left her "violated" after one instance of sex, and referred to it as rape, but said that she did "not want (her) words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense."
The Wikipedia article detailing allegations of Donald Trump's sexual misconduct - yes, there is one - lists THIRTEEN women who have alleged unwanted physical contact from the US President. Not only that, a number of paegant members in Miss Universe have alleged that Trump regularly walked into the dressing room when they were undressing.
In a 2005 interview on Howard Stern, Trump said that he was "allowed to go in because I'm the owner of the pageant. And therefore I'm inspecting it... Is everyone OK? You know, they're standing there with no clothes. And you see these incredible-looking women. And so I sort of get away with things like that ... I'll go backstage before a show, and everyone's getting dressed and ready and everything else."
And this guy "isn't surprised" by Harvey Weinstein. Wonder why?
