Yes, Harry Reid.

I never would have predicted that Harry Reid would emerge as our champion in the wake of this defeat, but strange days. It's demoralizing to consider he feels empowered to say this stuff, at least in part, because he's retiring, but, on the other hand, as long as he's saying it, I'm here for it.

Many of our fellow Americans believe that Trump's election validates the kind of bullying, aggressive behavior Trump modeled on a daily basis. How do we teach our children that bragging about sexual assault is abhorrent if we rush into the arms of a man who dismisses it as locker room talk? We failed to hold Trump accountable; we all bear a major responsibility for normalizing his behavior.
There is much more to Reid's extended comments on the floor of the Senate. You can view the entire thing at Shareblue, care of my colleague Tommy.

Thank you, Senator, for leading the way. Now I just hope others will follow.
