ICYMI, Samantha Bee launched a no holds barred response to the sordid tales of the decades long sexual harassment and alleged assaults by Harvey Weinstein. Women, and there are a lot of them, are having their day and say. Weinstein became an instant pariah, losing his business interests, wife and status.
The Fall of Harvey Weinstein is in sharp contrast to the Rise of the Pussy Grabber-in-Chief. The Access Hollywood Tapes were released a year ago and eleven women also came forward alleging sexual harassment by Trump. Didn’t Orwell say “All pigs are equal. Some pigs are more equal”?
Here’s a refresher. Yeah, this is the creep who is making decisions on contraceptive access and equal pay for women and you know–running the country.
The Furies ain’t what they used to be, but Samantha Bee is in fine form.
Rapper Eminem ripped Trump at the BET awards ceremony this past week. A lot of people are ripping Trump, but what set Eminem’s performance apart was his willingness to draw a line in the sand:
Any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his/ I’m drawing in the sand a line/ You’re either for or against/ And if you can’t decide who you like more/ And you’re split on who you should stand beside/ I’ll do it for you with this…
He extends his middle finger. Eminem, who is influential in white America, was willing to put his bottom line on the line. That is not something you see very often.
While I agree with Eminem’s sentiment, there’s sort of certain irony at work here.
