Instead of heading off to college after graduating from high school, Malia Obama took a “gap year,” during which time she interned at Harvey Weinstein’s film company in New York. Amid the recent allegations of sexual harassment launched at Weinstein, who is a close friend of the Obamas and a major Democratic donor, the “sick secret” Malia kept during her gap year with the notorious producer has come out. Now, her parents Barack and Michelle are panicking.
According to The Gateway Pundit, on Monday, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman launched a civil rights probe into The Weinstein Company, examining whether allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment against its co-founder Harvey Weinstein reflect broad gender discrimination and other civil rights violations.
“No New Yorker should be forced to walk into a workplace ruled by sexual intimidation, harassment or fear,” Schneiderman said in a statement on Monday. “If sexual harassment or discrimination is pervasive at a company, we want to know,” added the Attorney General, according to The New York Times. Of course, one of the women who was forced to “walk into a workplace ruled by sexual intimidation” was none other than former first daughter Malia Obama.
In light of the recent allegations against Weinstein, which have effectively exposed decades worth of abuse in Hollywood at the hands of one of the film industry’s most powerful insiders, one thing has become painfully clear. Harvey’s behavior was what many have described as an “open secret.” In other words, everybody knew it was going on, but they chose to look the other way because it was in the best interest of their careers; nevermind their integrity. They sold their souls to the devil for some screen time.
Even D-list actresses knew that if you went to Weinstein’s hotel room, he was going to request that you watch him shower or ask to give you a massage or make some other creepy proposition. Everyone knew. If you think for one second that the Obamas are the exception to this rule, you’re out of your damn mind.
The Obamas knew, just like the Clintons did, that Harvey Weinstein has never liked to keep his hands to himself. Yet, they all took his money anyway. In the case of the Obamas, they did something even worse. They placed their barely-legal daughter in a working environment with the producer; the same sort of working environment that saw impressionable young film industry workers being sexually assaulted by the dozens.
To any decent parent, it is unthinkable to secure an internship for their daughter with a sexual predator. This is precisely what the Obamas did, though. Malia could have spent her gap year in the offices of some other filmmaker. Michael Moore, perhaps? He’s practically obsessed with her parents. Malia’s the daughter of a former president, for crying out loud. It’s not as if she’s hard up for options. Still, Barack and Michelle chose the option which placed her in direct danger.
The media doesn’t want to acknowledge this. They have buried their heads in the sand and assumed that the Obamas had no idea about Weinstein’s penchant for pressuring young starlets into compromising situations. Look away, everyone, nothing to see here.
However, anyone with two brain cells to rub together can see what is really going on. The Obamas have no morals. We knew that long ago. This is just the latest, and possibly most cringe-worthy, example of the fact that Barack and Michelle left their moral compass behind long ago. Apparently, even their own children are not sacred to them.
