Reader's View: #MeToo prompts reviews of words, actions

President Donald Trump was very rude to ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega at a press conference on Oct. 1 — but that wasn't anything unusual. He commented that she never thinks. That said a lot about how he thinks.

Trump degrades the press, and to have a woman question him apparently was intolerable.

Did it really surprise anyone that Trump's choice for Supreme Court justice also seemed to have troubling attitudes toward women? Any candidate who aligns his or her campaign with the president should be scrutinized as to his or her policies toward women.

The #MeToo movement has created opportunities for critically thinking citizens to evaluate their words and behaviors. It's a shame some still seem to get a pass by a lot of our news industry.
