Harvey Weinstein Video Surfaces Showing Him Thanking Mike Bloomberg
Damning video has surfaced showing Harvey Weinstein thanking Michael Bloomberg for helping his production company when it was struggling.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is undoubtedly in full panic mode right now after a video surfaced showing disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein thanking the billionaire turned politician for keeping his independent film studio in business.
Harvey Weinstein Makes Crude Joke
The Daily Caller first reported that the video shows Harvey Weinstein, who has numerous sexual assault allegations against him, making a crude sex joke after thanking Bloomberg for coming to the rescue of his film company when it fell on hard times.
After noting that the two brothers wouldn’t be on that awards stage if the New York Mayor hadn’t “got it done for us”, Weinstein starts his trip down memory lane with an off-color joke.
“The reason Bob and I became fond of independent foreign films is because when we were 14-year-old boys and our hormones were raging, we saw an ad for the Mayfair movie theater…and it said ‘the 400 blows,’ and we thought it was something else,” Weinstein said at the event, which was held at the Gracie Mansion in June of 2013.
The event was held as a way for then New York city Mayor Bloomberg to honor Weinstein and his brother Bob as part of a “Made in New York” campaign led by the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment.
A portion of the video was posted to Twitter by the social media personality Comfortably Smug, and it quickly went viral. You can watch it below.

Weinstein Credits Mike Bloomberg With Keeping Weinstein Company In Business
A longer version of the video can be found on YouTube. The longer version shows then New York Mayor having the “pleasure” of giving the award to the Weinstein brothers. Bloomberg refers to the brothers as the “pride of Flushing” in his introduction.
Harvey Weinstein takes time to thank Bloomberg for helping his movie company stay in business. Remarking that the future presidential candidate “dropped a lot of things and got it done for us” when the New York-based Weinstein Company ran into trouble in 2009 during the recession.
“We’ve had tremendous years, but about four-and-a-half years ago there was a bump in the road,” said Weinstein. “I called our mayor, and I just said, ‘you know, things are a little topsy-turvy here at the company, you know, we’d be moving jobs to California and we don’t want to leave New York City.’ And the mayor, extremely busy as he was with so many more important things, dropped a lot of things and got it done for us.”
“The mayor’s there in a big way. The mayor was there in a visual way,” Weinstein continued. “And I don’t think Bob and I would be on this stage if the mayor wasn’t there for us, so thank you mayor.”
Harvey Weinstein was one of the most powerful people in Hollywood – and a top Democratic donor – before the allegations against finally him came to light in 2017. He is currently on trial in New York City for two of the sexual assault allegations.
The Mike Bloomberg campaign refused to comment on the video when contacted.
Bloomberg And Democrats Are Hypocrites
This serves as a reminder of how hypocritical Democrats are when it comes to their own.
Bloomberg and his fellow Democrats turned a blind eye to Weinstein’s sexual assaults. Weinstein’s behavior is considered an open secret in Hollywood. Makes one ask themselves why these Democrats would accept money from a known abuser.
Every American deserves to see this video before voting.
