Harvey Weinstein: Obama's Not Embarrassing; The Country Is Embarrassing'

Harvey Weinstein: Obama's Not Embarrassing; The Country Is Embarrassing'
by Tony Lee 17 Nov 2013, 7:55 AM PDT
Hollywood producer and Obama donor Harvey Weinstein said the United States is "embarrassing" because of its adherence to the Second Amendment and lack of universal healthcare.

Appearing on Piers Morgan Tonight Friday, Weinstein said "this is the only the country in the world where we don't have health care. Countries embarrass us around the world."

"And this is the only country in the world where we don't have a gun law. I watched you, you know, talking about that," he said. "You know, quite frankly it's embarrassing. Obama's not embarrassing. The country is embarrassing."

Morgan asked Weinstein during the show's Friday installment "if he could enjoy the work of someone like Chris Christie," the Republican governor of New Jersey.

"I love him," Weinstein said. "I think the guy's fantastic."

Weinstein then said, "as good as Governor Christie is," he could become an "excellent Secretary of State under President [Hillary] Clinton."

Christie is likely to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Should Christie win, his opponent in the general election could be Clinton, for whom Weinstein said he would do "whatever he could."

Also in the interview, Morgan read aloud to Weinstein Robert Redford's comments in which he said some Republicans who opposed Obama during the government shutdown were racist, and he commented that Redford used "pretty strong words" in "accusing Obama's opponents of being racist."

Weinstein replied, "I think some of them are, you know, unfortunately."

"Yeah, I do," Weinstein said of his belief that some Republicans in Congress who oppose Obama are racist. "Because this kind of vitriol is unexplained otherwise. It just looks like utter disdain for the president."
