Like Hillary Clinton’s statement on Harvey Weinstein, the statement from Barack and Michelle is pure pusillanimous poppycock.
What a bunch of cowards these people are.
Here’s what they released yesterday:
”Michelle and I have been disgusted by recent reports about Harvey Weinstein.”
In other words, “We didn’t know about this until we read it in the news.”
Which, we all know is boloney.
Harvey Weinstein not only got multiple audiences at the White House. Michelle and Barack sent their own daughter to intern for him just this past year.
To now pretend that they barely knew anything about the guy and were shocked — shocked, I tell you! — over “recent reports” takes a willing suspension of disbelief.
”Any man who demeans and degrades women in such a fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.”
But not while he is still very powerful and we are getting oodles of money from him. In that case, we’ll wait until he’s completely discredited and shamed before we say anything.
”We should celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories.”
Says the couple that went all in for Hillary Clinton. Despite the fact that when women came forward to tell those painful stories about her husband Bill, she didn’t celebrate them in the least.
”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.”
Suddenly, I’m thinking of that video of Barack showing off his stiffie to a plane full of giggling girl reporters.
Such decency and respect!
And remember who Michelle Obama said was a role model for young girls around the world?
If the Obamas were actually interested in decency, respect and “empowerment,” why did they let their then-underage daughter Malia intern for Lena Dunham’s raunchy “Girls?”
It’s hard for me to take seriously calls for “decency and respect” from people who routinely invited to the White House rap and hip hop artists whose lyrics are stuffed with disrespectful and indecent references to women.
So who are they kidding with this tripe?
Calls for action are easy when you really don’t mean them.
And teaching children decency, respect and modesty starts at home.
And as far as the Obama girls are concerned, it appears that ship has sailed.
You’ll notice that the Obamas’ pusillanimous statement is noticeably lacking any mention of returning or donating the hundreds of thousands of dollars Weinstein contributed to Barack.
Moral outrage is easy when you don’t have to put your money where your mouth is.
Like always when it comes to the Obamas, talk is cheap.
And cowardice runs deep.
