    Default 'Today' show host Matt Lauer fired for sexual harassment and the industry earthquake

    https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/ha...onduct-n824831

    Woke up this morning to the stunning news that Matt Lauer had been fired. According to reports, this wasn't a single incident. Give NBC credit -- it showed zero tolerance -- unlike some other media outlets -- in the way they dealt with this. But this has caused an earthquake through the media, entertainment and political world. I'm sure we'll hear more about this in coming days.

    It makes one wonder, though, about other cases that may come to light and other areas that haven't really been hit. I'm thinking specifically of the music world, but I'm sure there are others, too.

    It looks like, however, it's a new dawn.

    Again you choose to believe Trump on Grabbing women based on an Interview with Billy Bush?
    But choose to not believe anything else Trump says?

    I don't believe anything Trump says.
    He has always been a bragging Jerk and a Wanna BE Manly Man. Listen to his Interviews with Howard Stern.
    MW you haven't completely missed the point. Whether it is true(which would means that he potentially should be gaoled for sexual assault) or it is false (in which case it speaks volumes of his character that he thinks it is appropriate to brag about committing sexual assaults). In either case it more than amply shows that he is unfit for office.

    Point one I didn't say he said it after he was elected. Point two it is NOT ACCEPTABLE to brag about sexually assualting women, or men either, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. What he said was non-consensual; it was sexual assault.

    Bill Clinton wasn't Unfit for Office.
    Bush wasn't Unfit for Office
    Kennedy wasn't Unfit for Office
    Obama wasn't Unfit for Offfice
    Al Frankin wasn't Unfit for Office

    We have evidence that many of these people did similar that Trump did yet none of them were concerned unfit.
    Why are you being selective now?
    Again I am one who says Frankin shouldn't resign, But if you feel Trump is Unfit and shouldn't be in office then you need to kick out all MEN and WOMEN who make comments like Trump did in any Fashion about any gender.

    Good grief, Marky, how much bending over backwards will you do for this ugly President?

    Whether you find it acceptable or not it is the sort of trash talk that goes on all the time. DON'T DO IT if you don't find it acceptable.

    One of the reason he is in the WH is because he is like his constituents MUCH MORE than like the perfect Ken dolls we usually elect as president, with their perfecrt diction and perfect PC speech. He will frequently say things that horrify Washington. The rest of the country doesn't care. They get it and they get him.
