Sometimes when it rains, it pours, and disgraced Hollywood apex predator and high-rolling Democrat backer Harvey Weinstein is badly in need of an umbrella.
After being run out of Hollywood as a part of the hysterical #MeToo jihad against men and abandoned by all of his former liberal politician buddies, Weinstein slinked off to a sex addiction rehab clinic. It was nothing but public relations of course because if he really felt that he had a problem, he would have sought help years ago.
With his legal woes mounting and then suffering the indignity of seeing all of the hypocrites who he helped make rich and famous trash him at the Golden Globes celebrity circle jerk, Weinstein can’t even find peace when he is getting a bite to eat.
The man affectionately known as “the pig” was accosted by an inebriated man while he was noshing at a hoity-toity club in Scottsdale, Arizona with get this – his “sober coach” – and was lightly slapped in the face and called a “piece of shit” which is an accurate description for Weinstein.

Via the Hollywood Reporter “Harvey Weinstein Gets Slapped at Resort in Scottsdale”:
An unidentified man began berating the mogul last night.
Harvey Weinstein was accosted by a man at a resort in Scottsdale, Ariz., on Tuesday, according to video obtained by TMZ.
The disgraced movie mogul was at Elements restaurant at the Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort in Scottsdale when an unidentified man approached, began berating Weinstein before slapping him twice with the back of his hand, video shows.
“Our guests’ privacy is paramount at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa. Therefore, we are unable to provide a comment,” a resort rep said in a statement to THR. A rep for Weinstein responded in an email: “The TMZ report is accurate.”
Paradise Valley police are aware of the assault, but a report has not been filed, Lt. Michael Cole, department spokesman told THR. If Weinstein were to file a report, police would investigate the matter as a misdemeanor assault, Cole said.
Weinstein left for Scottsdale after he was accused by numerous women of sexual assault in on-the-record stories published by the New York Times and the New Yorker in early October. Weinstein has denied all the claims.
Since that time, dozens of women have come forward to share their stories of abuse allegedly at the hands of Weinstein.
Weinstein is under investigation by authorities in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London.
Life’s been a real bitch for the man once referred to by Golden Globes goddess Meryl Streep as “God” and who schmoozed with the likes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. There has however been some sympathy for the devil from Hollyweird and some are even publicly wondering whether they may have been too quick to swarm Weinstein and string him up by kicking him out of the Academy Awards.
The results of multiple investigations into Weinstein’s conduct by legal authorities are pending.
