    Hawaiian Senator Hirano expressing her frustration on sexual harassment and assault:

    "Guess who is perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It's the men in this country. And I just want to say to the men in this country: just shut up and step up, do the right thing for a change."

    You're all guilty now.

    I'm all for the #metoo movement but these kind of statements don't help.

    And then Trump steps in like the idiot he is and claims that if what happened was as bad as she says it was she would have called police.

    False and so ignorant of the facts around sexual assault and a harmful statement to all who have been sexually assaulted.

    We had a week of our president acting like a president - wasn't that nice?

    I've heard some "Sure, he was a drunken, spoiled, frat boy at an elitist private school, but we don't know if he attempted to rape her." I just hate that drunken, spoiled, rich, elitist is still a prereq for politics. I don't think those things disqualify him because those things describe almost everyone in public office. But they sure don't make me enthusiastic about him.

    Reports are in that both the accuser and Kavanaugh’s wife have received death threats.

    Does this surprise you?

    Death threats are common place

    You’d be amazed how many death threat reports are made.
