Barack Obama Issues Statement in Response to Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Former President Barack Obama is speaking out about Harvey Weinstein‘s ongoing sexual harassment scandal, which has already cost the film producer his job and his wife.

Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports of Harvey Weinstein. Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status,” Barack said in a statement.

“We should celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories. And we all need to build a culture, including by empowering our girls and teaching our boys decency and respect, so we can make such behavior less prevalent in the future.

Harvey was a significant fundraiser and donor to Barack‘s campaigns. Malia Obama also did an internship at the Weinstein Company in New York earlier this year.

Niall Horan Says the Obamas Always Visited One Direction on Tour: 'They Were Lovely'

Niall Horan strikes a pose on one of ShortList‘s 10th Anniversary Collectors’ Edition covers!

Here’s what the 24-year-old “Too Much To Ask” singer had to share with the mag:

On his relationship with the Obamas: “I’d always get a kiss and a hug from Michelle Obama. We [One Direction] would always play Washington on tour, and the Obamas would visit. They would come in these huge convoys with thick, bulletproof windows. I can’t imagine living like that, but they were lovely.”

On what he misses most about Ireland: “The thing I miss most about home is Irish ignorance. My mum said to me yesterday, ‘The world we work in is not necessarily normal, and that’s why people are obsessed by celebrities.’ Back home, a lot of people don’t get the references of people I’ve met, or places I’ve been. I miss the days when I didn’t know much more than what was in my hometown, and the innocence of that.”

Michelle Obama Wishes Barack a Happy 56th Birthday!

Michelle Obama took to social media to wish her husband, former President Barack Obama, a happy birthday on Friday (August 4).

The former POTUS is celebrating his 56th birthday and he is getting a ton of well wishes on social media!

“Another year older, but the same phenomenal guy I married nearly 25 years ago. Happy birthday, @BarackObama — we love you so much!” Michelle wrote on Instagram.

Michelle wrote a message to the followers of Obama.org that day as well.

“Today is Barack‘s birthday, and this year, I want to do something a little different for him. I don’t have a card for you to sign. Instead, I have something that I know would mean even more to Barack than your well-wishes (and that’s saying something): I’m asking you to share with Barack, right now, how you’re stepping up to be a better citizen in your community. I’m asking you to share your own ‘daily act of citizenship,’” she wrote. “This work — these personal, local, daily acts of citizenship — is what the Obama Foundation is all about. This work is what my husband is all about.”

Happy birthday Barack!
