Report: Harvey Weinstein Heard David Cameron Diss Romney

Harvey Weinstein is among President Obama’s campaign bundlers, having hosted fundraisers for the commander-in-chief twice at home in Manhattan and Connecticut. Today he is making headlines for a comment he gave to the BBC, in which he said that conservative British Prime Minister David Cameron told a group of people during the Olympics that England is against Mitt Romney.

“I also witnessed Prime Minister David Cameron say to a group of people,
myself included, that Mitt Romney had that unique distinction of
uniting all of England against him with his various remarks,” Weinstein said.

Romney caused a stir on the eve of the Olympics in August, questioning British preparedness for the Games. His remarks drew a rebuke from Cameron, as well as some irate headlines in the British press.
