The coming cascade?

So suggests Brendan Nyhan (via numerous twitter posts) regarding additional Trump sexual harassment allegations. And why not, it’s not like we didn’t have plenty of damning evidence before we had audio. Kristof has just pushed up the release of his Sunday column about a sexual harassment claim ended with a confidential settlement. CNN’s Erin Burnett shared on-air tonight, about how Trump had kissed her friend without consent. And the AP ran a story just earlier this week about Trump’s deplorable sexist behavior on the set of the Apprentice. (Seriously, just imagine for a moment if Romney or McCain had been the subject of the allegations in the AP story, but as it seems we have all acclimmiated to Trump’s horribleness, it caused barely a ripple). Trump is a walking, talking pile of entitled misogyny. There’s every reason to thing that now that the dam has broken, there’s going to be even more.
