Hollywood Refuses to ‘Believe All Women’ … Again

Trump biopic peddles rape accusation debunked by alleged victim

Hollywood led the way during the MeToo revolution. The industry had little choice.

Producer Harvey Weinstein’s downfall happened deep within the bowels of Tinsel Town. It made sense that the stars would leverage the moment to protect women everywhere.

And good for them. Except they didn’t always mean it.

Sure, celebrities raged against President Donald Trump, citing accusations from numerous women that he sexually assaulted them. They marched on Washington, wearing hats with names that can’t be shared here. They even helped form a new organization empowered to defend women from the next Harvey Weinstein.

Yet when former Biden aide Tara Reade shared credible allegations that the future president sexually attacked her, the industry stood down.

The “believe all women” mantra, shouted from the highest Hollywood rooftops, suddenly came with a bright red asterisk.


The stars also looked away over similar allegations lobbed against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Virginia’s Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax.

Why? They were Democrats.

Celebrities didn’t believe the women accusing these Democrats of atrocious behavior.  Or, if they did, they didn’t say a peep about their cause.

No social media hashtags. No fiery speeches demanding justice regardless of party affiliation.

That hypocrisy crushed MeToo.

The Time’s Up organization, formed with the support of A-list actors, subsequently collapsed. So did Hollywood’s moral authority on the subject, particularly after so many MeToo activists ignored Hamas’ rapes during the Oct. 7 terrorist attack that killed 1,200 people.

And it just got worse.

The new Trump hit piece, “The Apprentice,” features a scene where the future president rapes wife Ivana Trump. The film, screened earlier this week at the Cannes Film Festival, caused the expected ruckus.

Team Trump is threatening to sue the filmmakers for what it calls misinformation. 

One example? Trump’s ex-wife, who passed in 2022, has repeatedly denied said rape ever happened.

“I have recently read some comments attributed to me from nearly 30 years ago at a time of very high tension during my divorce from Donald. The story is totally without merit,” Ivana said in a statement to CNN. “Donald and I are the best of friends and together have raised three children that we love and are very proud of. I have nothing but fondness for Donald and wish him the best of luck on his campaign. Incidentally, I think he would make an incredible president.”

She said it didn’t happen. Hollywood, in the form of “The Apprentice,” doesn’t believe her. They want it to be true, so the filmmakers behind the project made sure it made the final cut.

Lawyers may make the final call there. The film doesn’t have a U.S. distributor yet, but it’s clear the creative team wants it to hit theaters before Election Day.

One thing remains clear. Reade will never see her story on the big screen.


  1. For the Crybullies, it’s the allegation that counts. Put out a movie with a lie and their work is done. They don’t care about a distributor after that. They know the lie will fly around social media and do the damage it’s intended to do. It’s the same thing as a tweet by a celebrity and immediately deleted. It was planned. The media and socials will spread it.
    And in a rare case there’s an “apology”, it’s not an apology but another chance to spread the hate and lie.

  2. Christian’s spot on. It’s long been a double standard. A good little Democrat toeing the party line could get away with pretty much anything. The left screeches like howler monkeys when it comes to Trump being accused by women. But the many, many women that accused Bill Clinton? Yea, nothing to see there. They’re all lying trailer park trash.
    As to Cuomo? His sexual misconduct was ignored for a very long time. The only reason he took a hit for it was because he was catching so much flack from other political issues (like him jamming sick people in with non-sick elderly folks during covid). Much like with Weinstein, it became too much effort for his fellow Dems to continue to fly cover for him. So under the bus he went. Unlike the Clintons, he simply didn’t have enough political dirt on other people in the party to keep himself out of trouble at that point.

  3. Leave it to Hollywood, where Marilyn Monroe celebrated her breakthrough role by saying “ I””ll never have to give another [bleep]”

  4. The political left will sink to any low to get what they want. I believe the “Apprentice” movie will backfire and help Trump, and I sincerely hope it does.

    1. Cuomo – who was actually railroaded- had to step down. His Emmy was taken away and he was shunned. So fake Hollywood did not ignore. Weinstein is a democrat . I’m a democrat but I don’t believe e Jean caroll, but your article is faulty.

      1. The drumbeat of allegations and impropriety was too much for Cuomo to survive. Yet Hollywood was almost completely silent on his MeToo allegations. Hollywood kept Weinstein’s secret for decades. They knew.
