TRUMP, OBAMACARE AND CONSTITUTIONALITY

harvey weinstein is accused of leaving a decades-long trail of sexual harassment and, possibly, rape – much of which victimized young actresses who needed his support and feared the consequences of turning him down.  His published statement and sudden announced departure to a European sexual rehabilitation center seems a clear admission that the accusations are true.
