Metoometoo

In a clear case of "whichever way the wind blows" any opinion expressed gets an immediate concurrence and cascade of supporting facts.

Etymology: me (used by a speaker to refer to himself or herself as the object of a verb or preposition) + too (in addition; also) slightly derived from Star Wars droid R2D2.
