Andrea Mitchell: ‘Outrage’ of Sexual Harassment ‘Feels More Like Climate Change’ than a ‘Summer Storm’
MITCHELL: "And good Sunday morning, I’m Andrea Mitchell. Chuck Todd is off today. When the stories about Harvey Weinstein first broke last month, many thought the outrage over sexual misconduct would pass like a summer storm. Now it feels more like climate change, with nine women coming forward with accusations against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, Republicans are trying to figure out whether to accept him, disown him, or, if necessary, expel him. Then just as Democrats were enjoying Republican hand-wringing over Moore came the compelling accusation by a radio host and former model against one of their own, senator Al Franken of Minnesota. And if that were not enough, the national revulsiowards this kind of behavior is forcing Republicans to confront the fact that the president stands accused of more than a dozen women of sexual misconduct and compelled Democrats to reexpect their unwavering support for Bill Clinton, especially how quickly they once dismissed charges against him as pure right-wing politics. Still, this week’s accusations against Moore and Franken differed in degree and in their response."
