Alex Trebek has offered his two cents on the #MeToo movement, but not everyone will be happy with his take. In a recent interview with Vulture, the Jeopardy host called it a "scary time for men" but said he's never been "in a position of power where I might be able to lord it over somebody sexually." As The Week notes, the conversation at the 78-year-old's Los Angeles home soon turned back to more mundane topics. However, Trebek managed to revisit the issue, in a sense. Asked who his dream guest would be, Trebek said Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of sexual assault. Trebek quickly acknowledged that "now you can't say that." (Just last month, Trebek received boos while moderating the Pennsylvania gubernatorial debate.)
