Liberal Guest Slams Obama and Clinton’s Silence on Harvey Weinstein Allegations
Liberal Guest Slams Obama and Clinton’s Silence on Harvey Weinstein Allegations (The Washington Free Beacon)
A liberal comedian, writer, and television personality asked Democrats on Monday to demand Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton "step up" in the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations being levied against media mogul and Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein.
Lizz Winstead, co-creator of the "Daily Show" and founder of the women's health and reproductive rights non-profit organization, Lady Parts Justice, expressed her disappointment in the absent responses from Democratic political leaders including Obama and Clinton. Weinstein has supported both Clinton and Obama, having hosted numerous fundraisers over the years, and donated his own money to their campains. In total, he has donated nearly $600,000 to Democratic campaigns and committees since the early 2000s.
MSNBC host Katy Tur asked Winstead what her reaction has been to Obama and Clinton's silence.
