MSNBC pundit and host of The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell took to his Twitter and just spoke the truth we've ALL been avoiding but have to face. 


When you do the math going as far back as... 1980!!! And you accept the fact that 1 or 2 a week is a lowball effort; you really have to admit that 'thousands' feels like an understatement. 

The number of women Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted--at this point 'harassed' seems dull-- reaches beyond a scope we cannot comprehend. And the initial feeling is evident.

Lawrence O'Donnell spoke candidly on Twitter about what we all know is true. There are victims out there still choosing silence, which is not a wrong choice. Everybody gets to process their trauma their way.

It seems that Twitter is in unison with O'Donnell on the message though.






Of course the next step in this conversation is the most important, yet controversial and painful... identifying how many more Harveys are out there? And then not just Weinstein victims. 

But speaking out comes when one is ready.





Lawrence has raised an imperative point. Is this where we are? A time when women, when men feel that this is the norm?



Accepting this behavior as 'the norm' is so NOT okay. It's time for everyone to face this epidemic and then work together to eradicate. 

Thank you Lawrence O'Donnell for exposing the hard truth! The time for ignoring is over!
