3. Quote of the day
“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.”
