Harvey Weinstein must have liked what he heard.  He took a page out of Bill’s infidelity playbook when he appeared for his sentencing hearing Wednesday on rape and sexual assault convictions.  He didn’t apologize to his many victims.  No, he offered only “remorse for this situation.”  It was all a big misunderstanding, he seemed to be saying.

Then, Weinstein adopted Bill’s lame excuse that extraordinary stress drove him to abuse women.  “I worked too hard and as a result of working too hard I felt too much pressure on myself,” he muttered.  What a wretched soul.

The judge sentenced him to 23 years in prison.  In the courtroom, his victims wept.
