Harvey Weinstein Tests Positive for Coronavirus In New York Prison

Disgraced sex fiend Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus from within a New York prison, according to reporting from a local newspaper.

Weinstein began his prison sentence earlier this month, after being convicted on felony sex assault charges against an actress and production assistant.

The disgraced movie mogul is already in poor health, having received a heart operation after his conviction before being sent to jail.

The former filmmaker has reportedly been moved into isolation after testing positive for the virus, and a spokesman is saying that he isn’t aware of the positive diagnosis. Weinstein has been described as ‘miserable’ during his stay at New York’s infamous Rikers Island jail, from which he’s now been sent to a correctional facility in upstate New York.

Some state and federal officials have expressed concern for inmates at prisons and jails in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic, who have no real means to isolate themselves from the viral disease. New York City is one of the municipalities that’s already releasing jail inmates to manage the prison system in the time of pandemic, but it’s hard to imagine that Weinstein would be let out on medical grounds. The #MeToo abuser was sentenced to 23 years in prison for his sex crimes convictions, a term that seems likely to be a life sentence for the 68-year old already in poor health.

Sure, it’d be in poor taste to celebrate anyone being inflicted with the viral disease, but Weinstein is far from the most noble individual to be afflicted with Coronavirus.

BIZARRE: Hulu Developing Alternate History Show Where Hillary Clinton Wins the Presidency

Dream on, liberals.

Published

on

The streaming video service Hulu is developing a show featuring an alternative history timeline in which Hillary Clinton became President.

The show will be based on Curtis Sittenfeld’s book “Rodham,” a fiction book about Hillary never meeting Bill and then becoming President on her own merits.

Variety describes the show as “telling the story of an ambitious young woman, developing her extraordinary mind in the latter part of the 20th century, moving from idealism to cynicism and all the way back again.”

Sarah Treem, who co-created the series “The Affair,” and also worked on “In Treatment,” “House of Cards,” and “How to Make It in America,” will be writing and executive producing on the show. Executive producer Warren Littlefield, The Littlefield Company, and Fox 21 Television Studios will also be involved with the project.

Big League Politics has reported on how Hillary and her daughter, Chelsea, are setting their sights on Hollywood to keep their disgraced family’s image in the limelight:

Hillary Clinton is set to launch her own film and TV production company with her daughter Chelsea, according to reporting from Bloomberg.

The Clinton film studio will reportedly feature stories “by and about women.” It’s likely the neoliberal political dynasty would publish content with an abundance of feminist themes, as if Hollywood was failing to produce enough already.

The plan by the Clintons to enter the world of film and television could finally signal their departure from American political life. The family has been a de facto presence in national politics since the early 1990’s, although they’ve been forced into an early retirement of sorts after Hillary’s defeat in the 2016 Presidential election.

The Obama family is engaged in a similar venture, having entered into a film production contract with streaming giant Netflix. It may not be entirely coincidental for the Clintons to follow along a similar path, having a long-standing rivalry with Obama dating back to the 2008 Democratic Primary. Then-Senator Obama defeated Hillary in a contest for the Democratic nomination, running on an anti-war platform he would forget upon arriving in office.

The Clintons and Obamas have every right to add their voices to an already saturated market of culturally progressive and lecture-full film production. However, now that they’ve largely departed the national political scene, they may be surprised to find out that the American people feel no obligation to pay them any attention.

“Rodham” will be more entertainment designed to deranged liberal cat ladies who cannot accept that Donald Trump is their president.
