Kimmel: Clinton took money from two men accused of sexual harassment, Weinstein and Trump

Jimmy Kimmel on Monday took aim at Harvey Weinstein after allegations of sexual harassment against the movie producer and former studio executive were revealed.

“People are pointing to the fact that Harvey Weinstein was a Clinton supporter, and listen, it’s true. I’m not defending Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonChris Murphy’s profile rises with gun tragedies DNC, RNC step up cyber protections Gun proposal picks up GOP support MORE," Kimmel said.

"The fact is, her campaign did take money from what turned out to be a high-profile man who’s been accused of sexual harassment multiple times. And not just one of them, by the way — she took money from two of them: Harvey Weinstein and Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpIvanka Trump pens op-ed on kindergartners learning tech Bharara, Yates tamp down expectations Mueller will bring criminal charges Overnight Cybersecurity: Equifax security employee left after breach | Lawmakers float bill to reform warrantless surveillance | Intel leaders keeping collusion probe open MORE, who donated to Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2008.”

His comments come after Donald Trump Jr. feuded with Kimmel on Twitter, asking the late-night host if he had "thoughts on Harvey Weinstein."

"You mean that big story from the failing, liberal, one-sided @nytimes?" Kimmel shot back. "I think it is disgusting."

"Great I look forward to your monologues next week," Trump Jr. responded. "You're probably due for a change if only for a moment or two."

Kimmel on Monday said he did promise a Weinstein joke.

“What’s the difference between Harvey Weinstein and the Pillsbury Doughboy?" Kimmel asked.

"When the Pillsbury Doughboy offers you a roll, he doesn’t ask you to watch him take a shower for it.”

The New York Times reported last week that Weinstein was facing sexual harassment accusations from multiple women.

Trump Jr. and Republicans have called on Democrats in the wake of those allegations to return donations from Weinstein in the wake of those allegations. A number of Democrats have returned his donations.
