"I'm down with #MeToo, I'm not down with #MeCarthyism"

Maher was responding to the following quote from the Senator: “When we start having to talk about the differences between sexual harassment and sexual assault and unwanted groping, you are having the wrong conversation.”

“I’m down with #MeToo, I’m not down with #MeCarthyism,” Maher began. “Something is way off when Senator Kirsten Gillibrand can go unchallenged.”

“Can’t we just be having an additional conversation?” Maher said to applause. “Can we only have one thought now?”
