The Obamas FINALLY Break Their Silence On Harvey Weinstein Sex Allegations
CNN absolutely slammed both Barack and Michelle Obama for their deafening silence over their friend and donor Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuse accusations.
“Where are the Obamas? Where is Michelle Obama? Where is President Obama?” Dana Bash asked.
“I mean, he–Harvey Weinstein was a, and probably still is a big supporter of them and certainly of their, of the president’s political efforts. And just let’s just pretend that the shoe was on the other foot and this was a Republican, somebody who is in Hollywood, who is a Republican who is alleged to have done these things and gave to Republican Presidents–can you imagine the outrage if they weren’t condemning this behavior? I mean, it makes no sense at all that they are not coming out and saying something. Nevermind the question of of the donations,” Bash added.
CNN’s Chris Cillizza also pointed out that Michelle Obama praised Weinstein in 2013. He also added that Weinstein is a friend and financial supporter of the Obama’s and Democrats.
Perhaps the big pink elephant in the room is too big for even CNN to ignore. They are correct; if the shoe was on the other foot and Weinstein were a friend of Trump or Bush, the outrage would be heard around the world.
If it weren’t for double standards, the Democrats would have no standards at all.

President Obama has added his name to the list of famous people who are disgusted by the stories that have surfaced about Harvey Weinstein.
The former Prez just said, “Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein. Any many who demeans and degrades women in such a fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.”
Obama went on … “We should celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories. And we all need to build a culture — including by empowering our girls and teaching our boys decency and respect — so we can make such behavior less prevalent in the future.”
Hillary Clinton has also *finally* broken her silence on the sexual harassment allegations surrounding disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Despite being on a promotional tour for her new book, “What Happened,” it appears the failed presidential candidate isn’t very chatty on the subject. Clinton released a statement which contained less than 40 words — 38 to be exact. Just three lines!
Clinton aide Nick Merrill tweeted the statement on Tuesday. Hillary didn’t even personally release the statement — rather chose to do so through an aide!
