‘The Stakes’ Extra: On Self-Care, Sexual Assault, And Being Triggered By Trump

A conversation with Ana Marie Cox and Marcus Ellsworth

It’s Thursday, October 13, 2016, and last night we bore witness to a rising tide of women who have come forward with allegations of indecent and inappropriate behavior — and even sexual assault — against GOP nominee Donald Trump. As part of our ongoing coverage of this election cycle, we’re bringing you this conversation between Senior Political Correspondent Ana Marie Cox and MTV Politics writer Marcus Ellsworth.

A quick warning: This conversation covers potentially triggering topics, including sexual assault.

The National Sexual Assault Hotline is available to anyone who needs it 24 hours every day at 1-800-656-4673.

Thanks for being with us on this journey, internet. We’ll be back at you next Wednesday night, following the presidential debate, with another installment of “Stakes After Dark (SAD!).” You can subscribe to our show and other fine MTV Podcasts productions on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and Spotify.
