What does this even mean?

Don retweeted this tweet that was in response to the nyt tweet below it and I am flummoxed. Is she seriously comparing Don's riding on the economic coat tails of Obama to Charlie Manson? Is she proudly stating Charlie was right in what he did? I need coffee ☕.


Far right”? You mean “right so far,” as in @realDonaldTrump has been right so far abt how to kick the economy into high gear.

@nytopinion
Charles Manson wasn't the inevitable outgrowth of the Sixties. If anything, he was a harbinger of today's far right. (link: http://nyti.ms/2hN7PMs) nyti.ms/2hN7PMs

Is the continuing outing of sexual harassment to excuse Don or true change?

I'd like to think it's due to people finally having enough, pointing out how widespread of an issue it is. But. Is it instead intended to excuse Donnie, because (a) "everyone does it" or (b) outrage fatigue?

Or simply entertainment that sells news?

Call me a cynical optimist.

Have you ever groped, grabbed, kissed / etc without permission? Your action.

I'm not asking about rape, but "just" inappropriate, unwanted acts, aka assault or harassment that you may have done.

I groped a few times as a young, and ignorant, adult, under "joking around". Now I wonder how this affected the recipients and feel bad about doing so. As it happened more to me, I stopped and never did again.

I hope the acceptability of "just joking around" changes, that everyone will see how widespread this is and help make it unacceptable.

Yes to all, first time as a barely pubescent not quite teen.

I hope this changes, that deniers will see how widespread this is and help make it unacceptable. Having a known sexual assaulter as president is nauseating.
