Chickens have come home to roost Obama and Hillary disgusted by Democrat donor Weinstein
Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein victims keep coming out. Former President Obama responded on Tuesday to the allegations of sexual harassment.
“Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein,” Obama said in a statement. “Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.
“We should celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories,” he added. “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.”

Obama’s statement follows one released by the worst loser in American politics Hillary Clinton, who said of Democrat donor Weinstein such behavior “cannot be tolerated.
Over the years, Weinstein raised millions of dollars for Democratic organizations and candidates, including Obama and Clinton, and hosted a number of fundraisers that Obama attended while in office. The Obamas’ 19-year-old daughter, Malia, interned for Weinstein Co. this year.
Since last week’s New York Times story detailing accusations against Weinstein, numerous conservatives have pointed to Weinstein’s support for Democratic causes and lobbed charges of hypocrisy given previous attacks from the left on the likes of Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly and Donald Trump over issues of sexual harassment.
The list of Democrats giving Weinstein donations to charity is growing every day. So far Senator Charles E. Schumer, Elizabeth Warren and Al Franken along with Clinton will be giving to charity. No doubt some of them for the first time.
Clinton said in an interview with CNN (Communist News Network) that she was “sick” and “shocked” when she found out about the sexual assault allegations against the Democrat donor.
