    This theme is way past its “best by” date. It’s no longer funny or clever.

    She just wants to leave feeling skin-sational.

    Evil Trump paid off 22 women so they would not talk while he ran for president.

    Some of Trump’s victims say he threatened to kill their families if they talked.

    Take it seriously. Investigate it. Prove or disprove it and either take appropriate action or get on with it.

    Or keep on with the “bread and circuses” media hoopla. “Inquiring minds want to know.” Man eats alien and gives birth to octuplets.

    About the shoulder holding image that people have misused and misrepresented:

    SHORT SEGMENT QUOTES

    Biden grasped a Cabinet official’s wife, and the photo went viral. Now, she says everyone had it wrong.

    Stephanie Carter, the wife of the former secretary of defense, Ashton B. Carter[,]… was troubled, too. But not by her interaction with the vice president, as she affirmed in a Medium essay published on Sunday. Instead, she resented how a tender moment between friends was reduced to a single misleading image, caught in the maw of online punditry. In the essay, titled “The #MeToo Story That Wasn’t Me," she recounted how the vice president had whispered his thanks into her ear and “kept his hands on my shoulders as a means of offering his support.”

    Instead of criticizing Biden, Stephanie Carter indicted the ecosystem of online outrage fed by Twitter, political punditry and late-night television.

    BE CAREFUL, TOO, OF FALSE EQUIVALENCIES!

    A kiss on the back of the head, or a nose rub can be intrusive and awkward. With some people they can even feel like power plays. BUT THEY ARE NOT SEXUAL ASSAULT. Pretending that those are the same causes real problems for people who are working to reduce the ever-present problem of sexual assault. Now, grabbing women’s genitalia when that is not requested IS sexual assault, and bragging about it afterward and saying that celebrity makes it okay is way beyond tacky.

    Apologies and increased awareness are the right ways to go, but this is NOT the same as groping, and should not be treated as such.
