Award for Sexual Predators: Obama Awarded Medal of Freedom to Clinton, Weinstein, Weiner, Cosby-Fiction!

Award for Sexual Predators: Obama Awarded Medal of Freedom to Clinton, Weinstein, Weiner, Cosby-Mostly Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

A meme shows images of President Obama awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, Anthony Weiner and Bill Cosby with the caption, “I didn’t know there was a sexual predator award.”

The Truth:

President Obama awarded the Presidential Medial of Freedom to Bill Clinton in 2013 — but Obama didn’t honor Harvey Weinstein, Anthony Wiener or Bill Cosby with the recognition.

That claim was made in a meme that began circulating in October 2017 after Harvey Weinstein, a Hollywood mogul and Democratic donor, was publicly accused of sexual assault by 40 women who worked with his company.

It’s not clear where the meme originated, but it shows Obama pinning the Medal of Freedom on Clinton, Weinstein, Weiner and Cosby with the caption, “I didn’t know there was a sexual predator award. Thanks Democrats.”

A meme falsely claims that President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to Harvey Weinstein, Antony Weiner and Bill Cosby.

The photo of Obama and Clinton is real, but the other three photos have been digitally manipulated to make it appear that they were honored by Obama. A list of everyone awarded the Presidential Medal of Honor by Obama can be found at an archived version of Obama’s White House website. Weinstein, Winer and Cosby don’t appear there.
