CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin has stated that the Obamas and Clintons don’t get a “pass” on the Harvey Weinstein scandal; there is instead a “dark mark on their record.”
None other than CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said on Tuesday evening that former President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama should not get a “pass” on Harvey Weinstein.
In fact, Toobin said their association with Weinstein throughout the years is a “dark mark on their record.”
“I don’t think we can give the Clintons and the Obamas a pass here,” Toobin said on Anderson Cooper 360. He cited Seth MacFarlane’s creepy joke about Weinstein at an Oscars event and added that MacFarlane’s joke illustrated that “a lot of people knew or had very strong suspicions that this was a very bad guy.”
“The Obamas and the Clintons embraced him, did fundraisers with him, paid tribute to him,” Toobin continued. “I think it’s a dark mark on their record.”
Even some in the left-wing media along with their political allies criticized the Obamas and Clintons for waiting a full five days before releasing any sort of statement about Weinstein. Their allies were dumbfounded that the Obamas and Clintons, who are always eager to virtue-signal and accuse their opponents of waging a “war on women,” stood silent as dozens of victims publicly revealed that Weinstein sexually harassed them or even raped them over the years.
“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein,” Clinton finally said in a Tuesday statement. “The behavior described by the women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”
The Obamas also finally said on record that they were “disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein.”
