The #metoo movement more or less was named the Time person of the year. Harvey Weinstein is done. Kevin Spacey is done, and so is Bryan Singer and Mario Batali, as well as a long list of men whose careers have been ruined or tarnished by sexual harassment, misconduct, and assault allegations.

Good.

Can Trump finally be next? There’s something like 14-17 women who have accused him of sexual assault, and he’s admitted to as much on tape. What’s the hold up, people? Is Sarah Huckabee Sanders going to trot out this old line for the next three years?

Huckabee Sanders is going to talk herself into so many paradoxes she’s going to fall through the space-time continuum:

Or is the White House going to continue to lie and suggest that there are eyewitnesses who dispute the accounts of the women? (There are no eyewitnesses. There is ONE eyewitness, and he’s lying his ass off.)

Donald Trump’s election helped to contribute to the political and cultural climate we are currently in, and now some of the women who accused Trump of sexual harassment are attempting to renew their accusations against Trump in the wake of this new climate. Three of those accusers went on the Today show to discuss their accounts with Megyn Kelly this morning. Afterward, they gave a press conference asking that Congress investigate accusations against Donald Trump just as they are investigating allegations against other Congressmen.

Will it stick? Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand certainly hopes so.

“President Trump should resign,” Gillibrand told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview. “These allegations are credible; they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking.”

Bernie Sanders, Jeff Merkley, and Cory Booker have also called upon Trump to resign.

Unfortunately, I worry — especially in light of Roy Moore’s Senate run — that the #MeToo movement has only managed to work itself around the part of America that actually cares about women, and that does not include the only people who can act on these allegations: Congressional Republicans. The best thing we can do in the meantime is to continue to amplify those voices, keep the heat on the President, disrupt his agenda, and make him wish he could resign.
