Hillary Clinton condemns longtime Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein

Even President Donald Trump, himself the subject of numerous sexual assault allegations, commented publicly on the accusations against Weinstein.

The reports have put Democrats under pressure to disavow Weinstein and return or donate contributions from him to charity.

In typical Lane fashion, however, the actor fired back with a quick retort, telling Weinstein, "You can't hurt me, I don't have a film career".
