Former White House advisor Steve Bannon said the "Time's Up" movement is going to "unfold like the Tea Party, only bigger,” according to a Bloomberg report.

“The top seven stories today are all guys getting blown up... And these are not small guys... I think it’s going to unfold like the Tea Party, only bigger... It’s not Me Too. It’s not just sexual harassment. It’s an anti-patriarchy movement. Time’s up on 10,000 years of recorded history. This is coming. This is real.”

Why it matters: Per Bloomberg, Bannon is "a connoisseur of anger, and in women's anger about sexual harassment he senses a prelude to their anger about a lot more." The Time's Up movement was launched in January by 300 "prominent actresses and female agents, writers, directors, producers and entertainment executives...to fight systemic sexual harassment," per the New York Times.
