As Twitchy told you, the New York Times has published a damning — though not remotely surprising — report alleging that Hillary Clinton shielded Burns Strider, a senior adviser on her 2008 presidential campaign, after he was accused of sexual harassment.
Old tweets from Hillary Clinton in which she portrayed herself as an ally of sexual abuse and assault victims were awkward enough. But this tweet from Strider takes the awkwardness to a whole ‘nother level.
After Anthony Bourdain — whose girlfriend Asia Argento is one of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims — called out Hillary for palling around with Weinstein:
know what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She's not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years

Strider rode to Hillary’s defense:

This tweet didn't age well now did it? @Bourdain

We’ll leave you with a little bit of bonus awkwardness:
