With ejection from his own company, and a broad-ranging dismissal from the industry in which he stood as a figurehead, Harvey Weinstein is just beginning to taste the wrath of offended women (and men).

Sadly, most of us have played the role of Billy Bush and Quentin Tarantino, and allowed the behavior to thrive despite our recognition of the offense. We seemed willing to dismiss any concerns over our president’s behavior via the three-word phrase “locker room talk” and quickly brushed aside the brave assertions of women who came forward.

Shouts of “Me too!” are growing exponentially. Perhaps it is time to assist the commander in chief out of his Teflon suit. The basic logic seems appropriate: If Weinstein, then Trump.
