NY Attorney General resigns, accused of abuse

His name is Eric Schneiderman, not that it matters anymore. He liked to beat up women. Apparently the accusations are too thorough to fight. #metoo takes another scalp.

Story at NYT.

Pretty much every place where this story appears, except the NYT, you'll see another post describing Trump predicted this a long time ago. Trump tweeted in September 2013, "Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone -- next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman. Is he a crook? Wait and see, worse than Spitzer of Weiner.

Wait and see.

Four and half years later, ka-bong.

It's like Carnac the Magnificent, holds an envelope to his forehead, "Weiner, Spitzer and Schneiderman"

Ed McMann repeats, "Weiner, Spitzer and Schneiderman."

Carnac the Magnificent looks at Ed McMann like, what, I just said that.

Ed McMann shrugs, "I'm confirming for clarity, for the audience."

Carnac the Magnificent tears open the side of the envelope and blows into it, pulls out a card. "Three high-level Democrat government officials busted for being sexual pervs."

Audience applauds.

Oh! That reminded me of something funny I heard a few days ago. Mark Summers, a producer of several of the best shows on Food Network is from Denver. He was co-hosting a morning show. Another co-host said, "Well one person enjoyed it at least. That was (some name) applauding. If you hear applause from one person, that's (some name).

Mark Summers said, "Applause from one person is applau." The other two co-hosts weren't expecting anything so subtly quietly witty and simultaneously stupid. They nearly fell off their stools laughing at that.

In a Day (2006) is a nice near-romcom with a woman-abusing woman's advocate as a minor plot point.

Apparently it's a thing.
