The Left may not give Sexual Predator Harvey Weinstein a free pass But there was far more dirt on President Bill Clinton back in the day – and Clinton survived it all.

If you don’t know Weinstein, you know his movies – among them, “Pulp Fiction,” “Clerks,” “The Crying Game,” and “Sex, Lies, and Videotape.” Weinstein is now under fire for sexual harassment of a number of women over the years – including young actresses like Ashley Judd.

Other high profile men have been in similar trouble over the years, including Bill Clinton, Bill Cosby, Bill O’Reilly, Anthony Weiner, and Roger Ailes. Of those, only Bill Clinton was protected by the Left.

No matter what Clinton did in Arkansas or in the Oval Office, he got a free pass from the liberal base. But Anthony Weiner, also a Democrat, went to jail. What will happen to Weinstein?

He’s already been fired from the film company that bears his name. And even though he has enjoyed special protection in the past — according to published reports, his future is not looking good.

Bill Clinton always seemed to escape from major consequences.

Clinton’s law license was suspended. But by that time, he was secure and on his way to being rich. He was impeached in the Monica Lewinsky & perjury affair – but his Senate trial was a sham. Neither he nor his wife Hillary has any shame – so the Clintons were able to shrug off multiple scandals, bimbo eruptions, perjury and the selling of pardons to new careers of bilking people out of money through the Clinton Foundation.

The other four men we mention all paid a price.

Roger Ailes had retired from FOX News and died soon after his scandal broke. Bill O’Reilly denied the accusations against him but lost his FOX News show anyway. Bill Cosby lost the court of public opinion and fights on in the court of law.

Anthony Weiner, the former New York congressman, and one-time husband of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who had an addition to sexting to underage girls in his persona as “Carlos Danger,” is doing time.

My theory is this: Ailes and O’Reilly were both FOX News conservatives and so there would be no redemption for them. In O’Reilly’s case, Media Matters went on the warpath while O’Reilly was on vacation – and sponsors dropped like flies.

Cosby is a different story; black, but unprotected since he had often come out with politically incorrect (but truthful) comments and advice about the state of inner city youth. Weiner was simply too disgusting for the Left to try and save. And so the husband of Hillary Clinton got a pass because he was so beloved by his base, while the husband of the top aide of Hillary Clinton got busted.

If you understand the Left, please clue me in.

We don’t know yet what will happen to Harvey Weinstein. The Left has always loved him. He’s bug a big donor to Democratic Party causes and to candidates like Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. So there’s much for the Left to ponder. Remember, it’s all situational to them. They got Clinton into office, and they were not about to let him go down, no matter how many scandals there were.

If Weinstein were a Democratic president, he’d be fine. But he’s not.

Just in the past few days, he’s seen major defections and new revelations:

The Board of Directors of the Weinstein Company fired him.
• His lawyer, Lisa Bloom, dropped him after taking criticism.
• His crisis management guy, Lanny Davis, dropped him.
• MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski has threatened to pull her forthcoming book from his publishing company.
• A report in the Huffington Post alleges that he cornered TV journalist Lauren Sivan a decade ago in a restaurant and masturbated in front of her.
• Breitbart reports via The Wrap that Matt Damon and Russell Crowe helped kill a sexual harassment story that was due to run in the new York Times.

That sounds like a lot. But there was far more dirt on President Bill Clinton back in the day – and Clinton survived it all to become a multi-millionaire. Through his wife’s campaign, Bill almost got back into the White House. Weinstein may not be as lucky.

Unfortunately for Weinstein, there is only one Bill Clinton.
