Village Idiots: “Joe Biden’s response that he never meant to make anyone uncomfortable and that he’ll listen and learn from anyone who says otherwise is exactly the leadership we need to build a culture where women are heard and are equal. … Just as we must believe women that decide to come forward, we cannot assume all women’s experiences are the same.” —Alyssa Milano, who led the witch hunt against Brett Kavanaugh
