Kirsters Baish| If you’re someone who uses social media, you’ve probably seen the hashtag going around “#MeToo.” The hashtag was created in order to bring attention to the amount of women who have been sexually assaulted or harassed at some point in their lives. Conservative firebrand Dana Loesch launched a Twitter storm in which he used #MeToo and gave details about having to leave her home due to death threats from left-wing radicals.
The infamous former White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, used the hashtag in her own tweet. Americans are starting to wonder if Lewinsky’s tweet was a knock at the man who was accused of sexually assaulting her, former President Bill Clinton. It might also be a knock at the woman who failed to become president, Bill’s wife, Hillary Clinton.

The tweet below is the one Lewinsky was referencing:
To all the women sharing stories of sexual assault and sexual harassment, thank you for your bravery to speak up. You are not alone. #MeToo

Reactions to her tweet:
Monica. I hope that you will not be forever scourged because of what happened when you were at the @WhiteHouse.

Ouch, this one had to hurt for the Clintons. Their own Leftist movement is blowing up right in their faces.
Something very interesting that we have to take into account is that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has been a close friend to the Clintons over the years, and now he is being fingered as a sexual predator.
Fox News reported:
Harvey Weinstein is no stranger to sex scandals – back when Bill Clinton was battling allegations he lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, Weinstein had the president’s back, and a hefty check in hand.
A recently uncovered 1998 story in The Washington Post lists the powerful producer – now accused of sexual harassment and assault by numerous women – among several Hollywood heavyweights who gave the maximum $10,000 to Clinton’s legal defense fund.
The detail gives a fuller picture of the longstanding financial relationship between the former first family and one of their best West Coast fundraisers. That relationship has been under the microscope after Hillary Clinton came under criticism for waiting five days to condemn Weinstein.
In eventually saying she was “shocked and appalled” by the allegations against the producer, Clinton said in a CNN interview that she would donate Weinstein’s political contributions to charity, as other Democratic beneficiaries have done. Weinstein’s contributions to her various campaigns, as well as a political committee she used to support other Democrats and a joint fund with the DNC in 2016, total more than $46,000.
When speaking about her issues with Clinton, Lewinsky has stated “I’m still held frozen in amber.”
While the scandal happened almost 20 years ago, the now 41-year-old explained that the headlines of her sexual encounters with the former president still haunt her today. She has explained that her name was recently brought up in a lewd way when people have made jokes about the #TakeTheKnee movement. (You can use your imagination to figure that one out.)
“There are many ways that I have been able to move forward but there are certainly times [like] with that meme that was going around, where I’m still held frozen in amber from incidents from two decades past,” she explained to People Magazine.
People reported that when Monica Lewinsky began to consider making a PSA for Bullying Prevention Month, she had something specific she wanted to stress to people. She stated, “I wanted to creatively demonstrate the difference between our online and offline behavior in a thought-provoking way.”
What she came up with was a powerful PSA labeled In Real Life. She worked with an ad agency called BBDO New York along with Dini von Mueffling Communications. It will premier on Monday. Lewinsky stated that the video makes clear “how people hiding behind a screen will write something they’d never say to someone’e face- and what that says about the inhumanity of their actions. It’s a stark and shocking mirror to people to rethink how we behave online versus the ways that we would behave in person.”
If anyone knows about this kind of thing, it’s Lewinsky.
