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.”
— Steve Bannon

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.

Thousands of demonstrators are gathering in cities across the U.S. and around the world to protest the killing of George Floyd. Huge crowds have assembled in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Chicago for full-day events.

Why it matters: Twelve days of nationwide protest in the U.S. has built pressure for states to make new changes on what kind of force law enforcement can use on civilians and prompted officials to review police conduct.

The coronavirus’ disproportionate impact on black and Latino communities has become a defining part of the pandemic.

The big picture: That's a result of myriad longstanding inequities within the health care system and the American economy.
