Can you guess who said the following phrase?
It was the former “boy king” Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah speaking in response to the Harvey Weinstein harassment scandal.
The Daily Caller reported:
Former President Barack Obama said Tuesday that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein should be “condemned and held accountable” for his harassment of women over the past few decades.
“Michelle and I have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein,” Obama and former First Lady Michelle said a statement. “Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.”

Weinstein has paid out settlements to at least eight women over the years, The New York Times reports. The women include his former assistant, an Italian model and an actress.
“I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go,” Weinstein said in a statement.
The king of irony had no problem with the husband of Hillary Clinton, one William Jefferson Clinton, whose scandals with women include multiple accusations of rape, sexual assault, and assault.
One of the best-known scandals surrounding Bill Clinton occurred while he was president.
White House intern Monica Lewinski had intimate contact with former President Clinton on multiple occasions, resulting in the infamous “stained” blue dress and anecdotes involving cigars.
Interestingly enough, the Obama Soetoro Soebarkahs have remained silent on the antics of “Slick Willie”; probably, for good reason.
The Clintons seem to be associated with plenty of individuals who have died mysteriously, or committed suicide in extraordinary manners, or experienced tragic “accidents.”
But, the former White House occupant only stated he was “disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein” – not the actions of Harvey Weinstein himself.
In a clear example of the use of “Obama-ese,” Hussein Soetoro indicated that “any man” demeaning and degrading women should be held accountable regardless of wealth or status.
In “Obama-ese,” the phrases or sentences used are open to interpretation; may appear to be definitive but are not; and, leaves important information unstated.
While the referenced source states “Former President Barack Obama said Tuesday that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein should be “condemned and held accountable” for his harassment of women over the past few decades,” it is clear Obama did not state it definitively. His statement is open to interpretation by media and citizens, as with all his statements made using “Obama-ese.” Why does the media not recognize this?
Remember, this is the “Hollyweird Rock Star” president who enjoyed the spotlight, lavish attention and support of the “Tinseltown Tawdries.”
Harvey Weinstein is a huge donor to Democrat candidates.
No one should be surprised at the use of “Obama-ese” to say nothing against Weinstein himself, only the reports of Weinstein’s behavior while allowing the media and citizens to interpret the statements to what wants to be heard.
So, using the proper “Obama-ese” interpretation, Hussein Soetoro’s statement should be this: “Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status,” except in the cases of Hollywood producers who are large Democratic donors, William Jefferson Clinton, anyone in the Democratic Party, or members of the political, global elite.
Moreover, when speaking about being disgusted over the reports of Weinstein, the actual “Obama-ese” interpretation is “Michelle and I are disgusted over the women coming forward to make public the acts committed by Weinstein. The resulting media storm over it is forcing us to have to issue some kind of statement since Malia interned for his company and he donates heavily to Democrats.”
Since Weinstein has paid “hush” money to many of the women who have accused him of sexual harassment, the Obama’s have to keep from saying anything that could prevent a payout to them through favors and donations from the “Tinseltown Tawdries.”
Even Weinstein himself learned to use “Obama-ese” effectively.
Look at his statement – ” I appreciate the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it. Though I’m trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go.”
Translation: “I recognize that my debaucherous behavior has caused some of my female colleagues a lot of pain; but, I don’t think I have done anything wrong. I’m only issuing this half-baked apology because I have been advised to do so. This is Hollywood and women know what they have to do to get where they want. Some are just upset their spotlight hasn’t lasted as long as they had hoped. I’m upset that I have been exposed so I’ll have to be better at closing the leaks. It may take me a while but I’ll get there.”
In using of “Obama-ese,” the less said is better, which opens it up to favorable interpretation since the media and citizens will respond favorably and leaves unsaid important information.
One would think after seven years of “Obama-ese” the media “talking heads” would be wise to its use and recognize it. It’s sad to see that is not the case.
