Senator Al Franken was pressured into resigning by his fellow Democrat Senators.
Now political opportunists see the potential for weilding the #MeToo moment as a weapon to bludgeon their opponents with.
And Megyn Kelly was out for blood as she seeks to exact revenge on her foremost opponent.
During the 2016 campaign, more than a dozen women came forward with accusations of sexual assault, harassment, or misconduct by Donald Trump.
While the news media breathlessly reported on the stories at the time hoping to sink Trump’s candidacy, the voters had their say on election day.
But now, Megyn Kelly, whose show has suffered from dismal ratings and embarrassing interviews, decided to rehash these stories by interviewing three of the women with hopes that the #MeToo moment might take down Trump.
In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Cooks spoke about their interactions with Donald Trump. The president has denied all of the accusations and during the interview the White House released a statement slamming the “false claims.”
The White House said in a statement that the “timing and absurdity of these false claims speaks volumes” and reiterated that the American people “voiced their judgement” by electing the president.
The three accusers — Rachel Crooks, Samantha Holvey, and Jessica Leeds did not make any new accusations against Trump, but appeared heartened that the country was now taking harassment of women seriously.
“For us to put ourselves out there to try and show America who this man is and especially how he views women, and for them to say, ‘Meh, we don’t care’ — it hurt,” Holvey said during the interview with Kelly, calling it “heartbreaking.”
“So now it’s just like, alright, let’s try round two. The environment’s different. Let’s try again,” she continued.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) called on Trump to resign over the accusations, as Renewed Right recently predicted liberals would.

Has the #MeToo moment been co-opted into a modern-day version of the Salem Witch Trials?
