Is Lorde an oracle? Who knows? But not long after the list of powerful men (and so far it has been almost exclusively old men) accused of sexual assault or harassment began to grow, beginning with disgraced Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly in April, followed by movie producer Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K., Matt Lauer, Pixar's John Lasseter, Jeremy Piven, Brett Ratner, Russell Simmons, Kevin Spacey, Jeffrey Tambor, James Toback, journalist Mark Halperin, Charlie Rose and dozens of other politicians, entertainers, executives and sports figures.
While Lorde was seemingly reacting to Pres. Trump's election and the massive Women's March that took place a week before with her original tweet, her follow-up thoughts also presaged what has become the de facto mood of some of those who do not support the former reality star's agenda. "The amount of hatred and fear radiating from this administration is already hard to bear, but we have to stay informed and stay outraged," she wrote.
