Soooooooo…Rep. John Conyers, D-MI, has been revealed to be a serial sexual predator, and guess where it’s NOT trending. Yep, Twitter took the trend off the list after this Buzzfeed report blew it up.
The story is also blacked out on CNN, despite the networks breathless focus on Roy Moore and Charlie Rose.
In other news, Charlie Rose showed just how out of touch he is when he told a TMZ reporter that he did not think his actions amounted to “wrongdoing” and then released a statement strongly implying that he thought at least some of the 8 women who’ve accused him of acts–including parading naked around them without consent–were into him.
“It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken,” Rose said.
But, hey, you know, it’s #Catsgiving. This is an open thread.
