After the New York Times published an article exposing years of alleged sexual harassment by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, the conservative press pointed out that Weinstein was an influencer in the Democratic Party.
Among the things that was unearthed were the comments of then-First Lady Michelle Obama, who praised Weinstein as a good person. Here are her remarks at a White House event highlighting student films:
“Harvey. This is possible because of Harvey. He is a wonderful human being, a good friend and just a powerhouse. And the fact that he and his team took the time to make this happen for all of you should say something not about me or about this place, but about you. Everybody — we are here because of you.”
Another fact in the Weinstein matter is that the Obama’s daughter, Malia, interned at Weinstein’s movie company this year.
