The Week In Garbage Men: Tony Robbins, Ted Nugent And Your New Roommate Walk Into A Bar

Featured

Hello and welcome to the Week In Garbage Men! It's been a while, mostly because I've had to cover other stuff the past few Saturdays, but here we are again! Are you excited? Yes, yes you are. We've got some ground to cover, so let's jump right in!

In Which Tony Robbins Motivates Every Woman In America To Hate His Guts

There are a lot of things I don't understand in this world, One of these things is motivational speakers and the people who go to see them. Like, if you're motivated enough to actually go and spend money to listen to Tony Robbins yell or whatever, then you should probably be motivated enough already, right? Because that seems horrible and boring and like my actual worst nightmare.

Whatever. So, as it turns out, Tony Robbins is not just scammy and yelly, he is also a total asswipe. During one of his recent motivational seminars, started going on about how women were using the #MeToo movement and their "victimhood" to feel "significant."

"If you use the #MeToo movement to try to get significance and certainty by attacking and destroying someone else… all you’ve done is basically use a drug called significance to make yourself feel good."

Yes, that is definitely what is going on here. Accusing innocent men of sexual harassment (I assume he thinks they're innocent?) is the new heroin, for sure.

But Robbins ended up getting confronted by Nanine McCool, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, who was not too keen on his interpretation.
