Kellyanne Conway slammed Hillary Clinton for her slow response to sexual harassment and rape accusations against Hollywood producer and Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein.
"It took Hillary abt 5 minutes to blame NRA for madman's rampage, but 5 days to sorta-kinda blame Harvey Weinstein 4 his sexually assaults," Conway tweeted Tuesday.

Clinton was criticized by Republicans and Democrats alike for her silence on the issue, and finally released a statement Tuesday shortly after actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie came forward with their own stories of alleged abuse.
"I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein," Clinton said in a statement. "The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated."
"Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior," she added.
Both Clinton's presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2016, along with her family's Clinton Foundation, have received hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations from Weinstein.
Clinton did not say whether she would donate or return Weinstein's $5,400 contribution to her 2016 campaign, as some other Democrats who received campaign contributions Weinstein are doing.
The New York Times originally reported last week Weinstein had allegedly sexually assaulted women over the course of 40 years.
