I've been saying this pretty much since the Harvey Weinstein story broke and I've mostly been ignored, but I think it's been the goal since the very beginning. The Russian collusion story is taking too long to wield any real results so it is time to go to plan B. First comes Harvey, then comes a laundry list of Hollywood stars, then some state level congressmen, then some national level congressmen and then, at long last, Trump himself. Careers destroyed and precedents set but it's all just collateral damage.

You are already seeing people bringing up Trump stories that they haven't brought up since the election. "In the context of the recent allegations..." posts and articles are starting to pop up and you are going to start seeing more of it. All of it, every allegation, every career that's been halted in its tracks, every apology made and every reputation destroyed have all just been props used to set the stage for the final act, taking down Donald Trump.

I may be ignored or mocked or have my judgement questioned for saying this but in a few months time many people will be singing the same tune and it will seem obvious in retrospect.

Why would anyone that had something to hide do this?

He doesn't seem to be afraid.

I don't think he will be taken down by his sexual misdeeds, I think it will be something else. He got elected and everyone knew he was a sleaze.

They already tried (mightily) to take him down with this prior to the election and it didn't stick.

I'm not entirely sure what to make of this "me-too-gate" that's been unfolding the past few weeks. As a practical matter any younger guys with successful intentions should probably pay attention to all this and act accordingly.

No, just evidence of peak liberalism; eating their own.

It is a glorious failure.

I would say feminism to be more specific, but same thing basically.

They won't be happy until no man ever dares to even look at a woman, and then they'll complain about that.

Not everything is about #45. Well, perhaps everything in his head is, but one would hope he is the only one in there.
