After Matt Lauer lost his job at NBC News due to allegations of sexual misconduct, many wondered when Donald Trump’s day of reckoning would come. Mira Sorvino believes that day can’t come soon enough.
The actress wrote “you’re doing down” to Donald Trump on Twitter. Another user wrote that an NBC-employee besides Matt – who hosted The Apprentice – needed to be kicked out the door as well.
You’re going down, @realDonaldTrump You already admitted in 2016 that the tape was real-you’ve admitted to #sexualassault & you have almost 20 women w/claims to back you up. Time to start packing-you are not immune & the cultural tide against sexual predators will sweep you away. https://t.co/RJJPm6xgZN

The 50-year-old said, “you already admitted in 2016 that the tape was real – you’ve admitted to #sexualassault, and you have almost twenty women with claims to back it up.”
Sorvino thinks the “cultural tide” against sexual predators will sweep the President right out of his office in the White House.
A person wrote pointed to Trump’s alleged immunity from allegations, and Sorvino said “no one is immune. Nixon proved that” despite President Nixon leaving the office for entirely different reasons.
As you may know, Sorvino is just one of many women to come out with stories regarding sexual harassment and misconduct. Mira said she had an experience with Harvey Weinstein during the Toronto International Film Festival in 1995.
In response, Weinstein and his legal team denied all of the allegations outright. Sorvino said she has “lived in vague fear of Harvey Weinstein for over twenty years.”
Mira said, at the time, she didn’t even think twice about what had happened. But, now realizes that the situation was inappropriate. The fact that Weinstein used his business-related cases to force himself on young women is atrocious. The actress added, “but as a woman who routinely advocates for women and girls who have been victimized,” she could no longer remain silent.
