Donald Trump must resign

I want to be absolutely clear.

Donald Trump should resign the presidency.

At least 17 women have accused Donald Trump of horrific sexual misconduct, and I believe them. Moreover, he's bragged on tape about that behavior.

This is not about politics. This is not about policy. I disagree with him on many things, but this is not about that.

Yes, we've known about these allegations for over a year now. They are not new.

In this great reckoning, America is establishing a standard that is long overdue: sexual harassment and sexual assault will not be tolerated. And no one is entitled to their position.

Once again, it's time for America to demand better of our leaders. All our leaders. And that includes the president of the United States.
