When a scandal forces liberals to criticize both Hollywood and the Obamas, you know it’s bad.
Hollywood and Washington are both freaked out over a New York Timesreport about mega-producer Harvey Weinstein and allegations of sexual harassment over nearly three decades. Several liberals raised a key point: Wasn’t this the same producer that gave Malia Obama an internship at the Weinstein company? The Daily Beast also asked: If Hollywood knew about Weinstein’s supposed harassment, why didn’t they speak out against him?
Former New York Times writer Frank Rich, now executive producer for Veep, tweeted on October 6, “Biggest mystery of @nytimes Weinstein story: How exemplary parents like Obamas let their daughter work there. The stories were out there.” Yesterday, Bustle and Hollywood Reporter published articles talking about Malia Obama’s internship at the Weinstein company, which reportedly lasted from January to August of 2017.
