SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Let's talk about the rest of the book here, as you put it all together. You talk about escaping, evading, fighting fear, the defender building an attacker's target package -- the reality is, we're all sitting ducks in --
JONATHAN GILLIAM: In some way or shape.
HANNITY: In some ways.
GILLIAM: Right. You know, these women that were going up to Harvey Weinstein's hotel room, they could have pre-thought that out. It was no surprise he was going to try to pull that on people.
Why not bring somebody with you? Why not bring another person with you, a guy with you, your manager? You see, these are things that you can do to mitigate these circumstances.
If you're in -- if I was a female working for NBC and I knew Matt Lauer was a predator, I would have made sure, before I went in into that room, that I had somebody with me, or I had somebody calling me within three or four minutes, to tell -- you know, just so I can say, "Oh, I got a meeting, I gotta go."
There's ways that you can think like this predator, and then actually mitigate the circumstances.
