It’s the new normal. Every night, we go to bed wondering who will be the next prominent man accused of serious sexual misconduct by the time we wake up. Today, it was Matt Lauer, who was fired from NBC News after a co-worker filed a detailed complaint about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace. But is there anything we can do beyond simply reacting to the daily story on yet another high-profile man getting ousted for sexual misconduct? Tina Opie, an assistant professor at Babson College, and Ellen Zucker, a partner at Burns Levinson, who has represented multiple women in sexual misconduct claims against their employers, joined Jim Braude to discuss.

This morning, President Donald Trump re-tweeted three videos from the leader of a far-right British group called "Britain First," which claimed to show Muslims beating up and killing people as well as destroying a statue of the virgin Mary. When asked about the tweets, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump was just trying to start a national security discussion. Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-MA), however, had a different take, tweeting this morning, “In a country with hate crimes on the rise, this is sickening. If the President elected to serve all Americans won’t say it, we will. Muslims & all religious minorities are welcome here.” Congressman Joe Kennedy joined Jim Braude to discuss those tweets, the tax bill, sexual harassment in Congress and President Trump’s mental state.
