One of the famous actresses who has come forward to describe her abuse at the hands of Hollywood film mogul Harvey Weinstein has now called President Trump’s Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders a “traitor” for covering for the “#predatorinchief”.

Mira Sorvino, an Oscar winner for Best Supporting Actress in Mighty Aphrodite and daughter of actor Paul Sorvino, made the accusation on Twitter today while reposting an article from Buzzfeed that shows Sanders at a White House press conference labeling the women who have accused the president of sexual harassment as liars.

Twitter exploded:

Six different women have accused President Trump of sexual harassment, including one who was only 13 years-old at the time of the alleged incident. Sorvino sees the same pattern in the White House of underlings covering up for powerful men who commit sexual assault as she saw for years in Hollywood where many actresses, actors, and staff members were too fearful for their current jobs and future employability to report their victimization and have the culprits face justice.

Now that the Weinstein scandal has rocked Hollywood to the point that a change in standard operating procedure is finally in sight, the public has begun to set their sights on other areas of society, including the government, where the imbalance of power makes it possible for powerful men to get away with sexual harassment with impunity. without fear of ever being brought to justice for their actions.

Sorvino followed up her tweet with another that linked to an article from NPR detailing all of the allegations of sexual misconduct publicly attributed to Donald Trump, along with the hashtag #BelieveThem.

Twitter Agreed with Mira once again:

Of course, most sexual assaults are never publically reported, either out of fear of retribution, fear of being labeled a liar (exactly as Sanders and her boss have done), or out of shame and self-blaming, so the true number of women Trump may have assaulted may never be known.

The hypocrisy of a president and a Republican Party who have attacked the Democrats for accepting donations from Harvey Weinstein now that he’s been accused of such heinous actions in denying and ignoring the exact same type claims against Donald Trump would be pitiable were it not so entirely predictable.

Bravo, Ms. Sorvino for calling out the hypocrisy and bringing Sanders to task. Now let’s let the victims in these accusations get their day in court to bring the full story of what really happened to them out in the open.
