Julianne Moore Blames Sexual Harassment Climate on Trump - Not Hollywood

Hollywood celebrities just can’t help themselves: they simply must blame the new revelations about widespread sexual misconduct - revelations that have centered around liberal Hollywood - on President Trump, whether it’s possible to square that circle or not.

The latest is actress Julianne Moore, who was honored at the Museum of Modern Art's Film Benefit in New York City on Monday.

According to Elle, Moore said, "It’s been horrific for us to come and click on the paper every morning and see something else yet again. [But] we’re finally validating these experiences and these women, and we’re making them feel like they’re not crazy. And it’s really important. The only way this will stop is if we recognize this behavior is criminal."

Moore, who is playing feminist icon and Bill Clinton defender Gloria Steinem in a new biopic, told ELLE.com that part of the solution is more entertainment industry jobs for women: "Jobs. I think that’s what it is, right? Every industry is all about jobs.”

So did Moore take the opportunity during her speech to blast Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, Louis C.K. and other liberal sleaze bags who have been accused of sexual harassment and abuse? Did she rip Bill Clinton for using his power to use Monica Lewinsky?

Of course not. Moore talked about Trump. "We're currently living in very difficult times, where our very humanity feels threatened and dismissed by a leader who continues to demean, berate, ignore, and debase us all," she said. "But I have truly been heartened by those who have spoken out, and our refusal to accept this behavior as normal....We are learning that the more we validate and see one another’s experiences and add our voices to one another’s, the stronger we are as a human force—and the more likely we are to effect lasting change and rid ourselves of racism, gender bias, sexual assault, and gun violence."

The only surprising thing is that she didn't somehow try and work Vice President Mike Pence into the mix.
