The lefty entertainment industry thinks that everyone forgot everything.
How else do you explain Saturday Night Live, Al Franken’s formerly employers, deciding that it’s a good idea to bring out Harvey Weinstein’s golden boy, Matt Damon, to mock Brett Kavanaugh. Never mind his recent apologizes for comments minimizing sexual abuse in Hollywood.
There’s this simple fact.
Matt Damon knew about Harvey Weinstein. And he lied about it.
He said: “A lot of people said, ‘Well, Harvey – everybody knew.’ That’s not true. Everybody knew what kind of guy he was in the sense that if you took a meeting with him, you knew he was tough and he was a bully, and that was his reputation. And he enjoyed that reputation, because he was making the best movies out there.
“Nobody who made movies for him knew … Any human being would’ve put a stop to that, no matter who he was. They would’ve said absolutely no. You know what I mean?”
The 47-year-old actor adds that he knew he wouldn’t want Weinstein to be “married to anyone close” to him, but that was as far as his suspicions went.
“I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben because he was with her after Brad [Pitt],” Damon confessed during an interview with Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan, which aired on Monday. “But I was working with Gwyneth and Harvey on Ripley.”
Damon says he never “talked to Gwyneth” about the alleged encounter with Weinstein. “Ben told me, but I knew that they had come to whatever agreement or understanding they had come to,” he explained. “She had handled it and she was the first lady of Miramax and he treated her incredibly respectfully always.”
