Ignoring #BillClinton’s sex crimes, #Democrats assault President #Trump

Screenshot 2017-12-13 at 08.22.54.pngPresident Donald Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting an immediate backlash.

“Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

The tweet came as Trump is already facing negative publicity from renewed allegations from three women who had previously accused him of sexual harassment, which are coming amid the #MeToo movement that is roiling the nation and forcing powerful men accused of sexual misbehavior from their posts.

The backlash and criticism was near instantaneous, with Gillibrand replying directly to Trump on Twitter. “You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office,” she wrote.

At a news conference later on an unrelated issue, Gillibrand called Trump’s tweet “a sexist smear attempting to silence my voice.”

She never mentioned notorious sex criminal Bill Clinton.
