Liberal writer breaks ranks to question Obamas’ parenting skills

Liberals seem to have no problem turning on one of their own, especially if they dare to insult the Obamas.

Following news of film studio executive Harvey Weinstein facing allegations of decades of sexual harassment, former New York Times columnist Frank Rich had a simple question.

How did  “exemplary parents” like Barack and Michelle Obama allow their daughter Malia to intern for the Weinstein Company earlier this year?

The paid internship in the production and development department ended in August when the older Obama daughter headed to Harvard.

Rich’s question seemed like a fair one, given that the Hollywood mogul’s alleged behavior was an “open secret” for years. Could the Obamas not have been aware, especially with Weinstein’s connections to powerful Democrats like themselves, the Clintons and others who enjoyed the director’s deep pockets?

But Rich got slammed by his fellow liberals for taking a “shot” at the former president and his family.

And of course, someone always finds a way to get race involved.

Malia’s work with Weinstein was certainly not her first foray into the Hollywood film industry as she interned with Steven Spielberg in 2014 and Lena Dunham in 2015.

Apparently the Obamas weren’t too worried about possibly exposing their daughter to the many predators in Hollywood. But some pointed out that the young Obama was safe with Weinstein because of the balance of power.

And while Rich was raked over the coals by those in his own camp, one has to wonder why he and “other culture gatekeepers” didn’t expose the sordid stories earlier themselves since they were already “out there.”
