Gayle King Defends Barack And Michelle Obama In Weinstein Scandal

A segment about the recent developments in the Harvey Weinstein scandal took a bit of a turn on ‘CBS This Morning’ Monday when the Obama family came up in conversation.

CBS News contributor and New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor was on the program to speak about her four month investigation into the executive and the news on Sunday that he had been terminated by the board of directors.

It was while they were going to break that guest host Bianna Golodryga, who was filling in for Norah O’Donnell, simply mentioned the fact that Malia Obama had interned for Weinstein.

That caused King to quickly announce that the Obamas did not know, despite not having an concrete evidence to confirm that fact.

‘I think the question stands who protected Harvey Weinstein, who protected the women. Did the women feel they could speak up? Would anybody believe them?’ said Kantor at the close of the segment.
