That’s Not a Rabbit in Your Hat

“To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke – and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner.” George HW Bush issues new statement as second actor accuses him of sexual assault. The claims made about the former president aren’t as violent as the ones made about Harvey Weinstein and others, but they’re not pretty. From Deadspin: “Rumors about Bush groping actresses in this manner have been circulating for a while. More than a year ago, a tipster passed word about the Heather Lind incident to Deadspin. We were told that Bush had, during a photo opp, groped her and told her that his favorite magician was ‘David Cop-a-Feel‘ while fondling her.” (Anyone else starting to think being President of the United States isn’t necessarily a plus on one’s resumé?)

+ “The stories of harassment shared with CNN range in nature from propositioning employees for sex to kissing and grabbing one’s breasts against her will.” CNN: Five women accuse political journalist Mark Halperin of sexual harassment.
OK, let’s try it this way instead: Raise your hand if you haven’t sexually assaulted a bunch of women at the office.
