Jeff Flake, #MeToo, and a Strong, Steady Voice Against the Trump Agenda

Michele and Igor sit down with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) to discuss #MeToo, the viral hashtag that serves as a rallying cry against sexual misconduct and assault; her meeting with Ivanka Trump; and Administrator Scott Pruitt’s dangerous decisions at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Michele and Igor also talk about Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) announcement this week that he will not seek re-election in 2018, making him the latest congressional Republican who no longer wants to put up with President Donald Trump.
