The Republican National Committee released a brutal advertisement on Wednesday, calling on prominent Democrats and liberal lawmakers to return the “dirty money” they received from disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein for decades.
The ad begins with leading liberal lawmakers like former President Barack Obama and doomed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton slamming “sexists” and “misogynists,” before telling the Democratic leaders to, “Put your money where your mouth is… Return all of the dirty Harvey Weinstein money.”
High-powered studio boss Harvey Weinstein was thrust to national headlines last week after the New York Times published a bombshell report detailing the executive’s decades long history of sexual abuse, assault, and rape.
Weinstein has donated massive amounts of money to Democrat causes for decades, writing large checks to the Clintons, Obamas, and more. The video also features a clip of former First Lady Michelle Obama praising Weinstein, calling him a “wonderful human being.”
“I want to start by thanking Harvey Weinstein,” said Mrs. Obama. “He is a wonderful human being, a good friend, and just a powerhouse.”
