Tarana Burke, the creator of the #MeToo movement, challenged the “audacity” of Americans to elect Donald Trump after the “Access Hollywood” tape.

On “CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera,” the host asked, “Do you believe that where we are today is a result of a–a sort of, cultural wounds that were maybe opened during the campaign?”

Burke answered, “Oh, absolutely. I think that the audacity of the country to elect a president who was a known, self-admitted sexual predator and sexual harasser was probably a bridge too far for people.”

She added, “Like, we’ve come to a place where people feel emboldened to speak out loud, but I think, before #MeToo, it was just people being aghast that we could elect a president that could say the things that he said.” (RELATED: CNN’s Symone Sanders: ‘We Must Believe’ Accusers, Even If There’s No Proof [VIDEO])
