Ashley Judd was the high-profile actress that opened the floodgates on sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein. Check out what she says about Harvey now.
Judd has consistently been outspoken about sexual assault. She has bravely come forward and opened up that she’s been a victim of rape and incest, and is a survivor of both.
That does make me feel some compassion for her. I cannot imagine what that has done to her psychologically and applaud her on how she has rebounded from such scarring events to the pinnacle of success in Hollywood.
I for one, as a female ClashDaily Editor, applaud her for speaking out and being a voice on these very personal, traumatic incidents that many just don’t want to talk about.
But then, Ashley Judd also says some really nutty things.
Don’t forget her Nasty Woman speech/slam poem at the
Nasty Women’s March.
In it, she accused President Trump of having ‘wet dreams’ of his daughter Ivanka.
And she seems to get ‘triggered’ by the most innocuous things. Like when she was at a basketball game and an older man asked if he could take his photo with her, then mentioned that he liked Trump. She needed a hug from her uncle and called for basketball games to be apolitical safe spaces. (Gee, I wonder how she feels about the NFL now that they’re championing the ‘Gender Pay Gap’, an issue close to Judd’s heart.)
Earlier this year, she posted a video on Facebook where she complained that a male TSA worker complimented her. She tried to get the dude fired for saying ‘pretty lady’ then ‘putting his hands on her’.
You’d think that a woman that has survived so much actual sexual assault, harassment, and even rape would know the difference between innocent compliment that is an admiration of beauty and the leering look of a predator.
Perhaps it’s because of all that she has endured that makes Judd so hypersensitive.
As a champion for women, pulling back the curtain on sexual harassment and abuse, she should realize that every smile or compliment by a man isn’t sexual harassment.
She was the first woman in Hollywood to come forward and expose the ‘open secret’ about Weinstein to everyone outside of the Hollywood bubble.
Weinstein has lost his job in a company he has co-founded, went to sex addiction ‘rehab’ (though he was only there for a week before it was announced that he’s ‘cured’,) is facing investigations in multiple countries, and it is inevitable that he will face many, many charges. Women continue to come forward with their stories about Harvey.
Watch here how Ashley Judd said that she made a deal with Harvey to sleep with him after she won an Oscar to avoid being raped, and then what she’d say to him now:
What a horrible situation.
No one should ever be subjected to that.
But, riddle me this: How can she forgive Weinstein, a man that is a horrific sexual predator — who attempted to prey on her as a young, aspiring actress — and yet she continues to refuse to give President Trump the benefit of the doubt?
How can she ‘love’ Harvey and despise Trump?
Is it because of his politics?
President Trump has vowed to fight the ‘epidemic of human trafficking’. This is an issue that Ashley has been speaking out against.
Ashley starred in a movie about it, and met with victims of it, and wrote about it in her memoir.

Look at that! They agree.
Do you think that Ashley Judd will ever speak about President Trump the way she has Harvey Weinstein?
I’m thinking no.
Because he’s the ‘enemy’.
And good ol’ Harvey is just a misguided, sick man that needs help.
And he was ‘With Her’.
Isn’t that all that matters?
