The Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal has set off a chain reaction that is exposing many in Hollywood and Washington, D.C., including the former First Lady Michelle Obama, who can be see in the video below praising Weinstein as a “wonderful human being” and “good friend”.
As allegations continue to pile up and the future for Weinstein looks more bleak than ever, a video of Michelle Obama absolutely gushing over Weinstein in 2013 at a student film symposium has surfaced.
“I want to start by thanking Harvey Weinstein for organizing this amazing day. This is possible because of Harvey. He is a wonderful human being, a good friend and just a powerhouse,” gushed the former First Lady.
Watch the shocking footage below:
It is no secret that Weinstein had a relationship with numerous Democrats, including the Clintons and the Obamas — both of whom waited an entire 5 days after the scandal broke to finally make statements condemning Weinstein.
Visitor logs revealed that Weinstein visited the Obama’s while they were in the White House a total of 13 times between 2010 and 2014.
