A Silence That Was Not Broken At UC Davis...

In the midst of natural and unnatural disasters where help is needed- and there are ways to, there is also this UC related news:

"Here’s Hillary Clinton on stage in Davis talking about Trump, Comey, fake news"

"
Hillary Clinton Breaks Silence On Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Reports"
https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-barack-obama-harvey-weinstein_us_59dcc684e4b0b34afa5c28f1

She didn’t mention Weinstein, who has donated and helped raise large sums for the Clintons and the Democratic Party, on Monday at a book tour event at the University of California, Davis ― her first public appearance since the news broke."

- the political donations can flow to and from both sides, hedged bets by contributing to both or all political parties running... all sides... the idealist would say outrage should be non partisan etc (see Tapper, Kimmel apropos comments on that etc)
