    When Matt Damon see Harvey Weinstein and Al Franken taking a picture putting Harvey Weinstein and Al Franken hands on that woman’s flak jacket and mugging for the camera … that is just like a terrible joke, and it’s not funny. It’s wrong, and he should n’t have done that, but when you talk about Harvey Weinstein and what Harvey Weinstein’s accused of, there are no pictures of that. Harvey Weinstein knew Harvey Weinstein was up to no good. There’s no witnesses. There’s no pictures. There’s no braggadocio. That stuff happened secretly, because it was criminal and he knew it. So they don’t belong in the same category.
