As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum

Not only was he a major bundler of campaign cash for Obama and Clinton but he's also hosted a series of fundraisers at his various homes around the country over the years. In 2013, he hosted then-President Barack Obama for a fundraiser at his New York City apartment. In 2012, Obama did a fundraiser for his re-election bid at Weinstein's home in Connecticut. During the 2016 campaign, Weinstein held a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign at his New York City apartment and another with fashion mogul Anna Wintour.

In 2013, first lady Michelle Obama praised Weinstein for his involvement in a student film symposium at the White House. "I want to start by thanking Harvey Weinstein for organizing this amazing day," she said. "Harvey. This is possible because of Harvey. He is a wonderful human being, a good friend and just a powerhouse."

Malia Obama, the couple's daughter, interned at The Weinstein Company before starting college at Harvard this year.

I could see it being an issue if Hillary Clinton were president or if Obama was currently the president. To call on has-beens to make a statement is stretching it a bit, don't you think? I mean, who cares?

LOL the new talking point

Hillary isn't President

Obama isn't President anymore.

But Obama was  President when this was going on and Hillary has held high positions.

 

I personally don't care but you guys make a big deal out of Trumps associations.

And run with unsubstantiated stories a if they were real.

Not the best examples since Bryant and Tyson were prosecuted 

Weinstein as far as I know has never been prosecuted for any of his abuses of women

Yet.

 

Besides, the fact that they were prosecuted doesn't detract from the fact that their "status" gave them permission in their mind to do what they did. Kind of the modern definition of privilege.

What bothers me as a father is that you would have thought someone in the industry would have warned the Obamas that sending her daughter to work for Harvey's company as an intern would not be good. It's not like it was a secret from what's coming out very far from it.

 

I have a good idea what type of parents they are and with that information, they wouldn't let that pos near their kids.

Ask yourself the same question with Democrats:rolleyes:

So any time a Politician speaks out on Sexual Abuse/Harrassment, it’s political?

Good point. To be fair, I’m not sure how involved HW is in day to day operations at his company. 

Unless she was assigned to be Weinstein’s personal assistant, I don’t know if people “in the know” would inform the Obamas

You are probably right.  All I read she was an intern to his company.

 

But you think about if Weinstein was left unchecked for years and everyone in Hollywood or NYC in the industry knew about it and did nothing, they wouldn't have the guts to tell the Obamas.

If power tripping was driving this behavior one would think he would know better than to go after the daughter of someone who is arguably the most powerful man on the planet at the time.

I can understand handing their 18 year old daughter over to a serial abuser and alleged violent rapist.....he is a "good friend" and a "wonderful human being" according to michelle.
