    No, I'm A Gentleman

    17/10/2016 Duração: 13min

    Donald Trump has said some pretty horrific things about women during the course of his campaign. But it all came to a head when a 2005 recording of Trump and Billy Bush was released. On the audio clip, Trump discusses sexually assaulting women in part due to his celebrity status, all the while with Bush egging him on. Today's episode, "No, I'm A Gentleman," explores the implications of this kind of behavior from a presidential candidate, and the dangers today surrounding sexual assault and gender inequality in the United States.

    As of the day this podcast was first posted, Judge Merrick Garland will have been waiting 194 days since his nomination to the Supreme Court. Judicial nominations and appointments - or lack thereof - is a huge problem, especially now. And who do we have to blame? The Senate, who has time and time again decided not to do their job. Join Generation Invincible today as we discuss why we need to tell the Senate to #DoYourJob, the merits of Merrick, and why a 9th member of the Supreme Court is essential.

    Today's episode of Generation Invincible is dedicated to those whose lives were lost or who were injured in the horrific massacre in Orlando, Florida. Anger. That's what we're feeling, so that's what today's episode is about. Anger towards what happened, anger about Hillary Clinton's historic nomination, and anger about the Brock Turner case. How you should handle that anger and channel it for the greater good, rather than further contributing to hate and violence. Here's the article I reference that explains how to contact your Senator or Representative and gives a form letter or script for writing or calling them: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nicole-silverberg/guide-elected-representatives-gun-control_b_8708154.html To submit feedback for Generation Invincible, email [email protected] Please subscribe, rate, and review on iTunes!
