Kirsten Gillibrand calls Donald Trump tweet 'sexist smear'

Kirsten Gillibrand had called for the Republican president's resignation, citing accusations of sexual misconduct.

"Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck 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", he tweeted at 8:03 a.m.in third-person.

What a fucking sexist pig.

President Trump "has used similar terminology many times when talking about politicians of both parties, both men and women, and certainly in his campaign to drain the swamp", she also said. "There's no way" his tweet was sexist, she said, and only people with their minds in the gutter would read anything sexual into it.

The New York senator hit back at Trump Tuesday morning, saying that he "cannot silence" her and she will continue to speak out about the shame Trump "has brought on the Oval Office".

Quake of 5.5 magnitude jolts Uttarakhand
However, no casualties have reported yet; the reports suggested Uttrakhand was the epicentre of the natural disaster . The epicentre of the quake was at 30 km depth, and the tremor is considered moderate.

Gillibrand, one of the leading lawmakers advocating against sexual harassment and a potential 2020 presidential contender, was at a bipartisan Bible study session when a staffer alerted her to Trump's tweet, according to an aide. "Neither will the women who stood up to the president yesterday". "Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!" the President tweeted.

So, it's "obvious" Trump lashed out at Gillibrand as a way to smack down "the corruption of the entire political system", apparently. Trump targeted the only woman of the four who called on him to resign. On the one hand, the swift reaction of Gillibrand and her fellow Democrats Tuesday show a party ready to call out the President, to fight him tweet-by-tweet and to fire up the Democratic coalition - especially women voters. "He is an admitted sexual predator and the only thing that will stop him is his resignation", Hirono said. And conservative media quickly jumped on the idea that mainstream reporters had willfully misinterpreted the tweet - thereby offering a fresh rallying point for the President's political base. "Our leaders should focus on the issues, not personal attacks", he wrote in a statement to the Washington Post. She also called for Congress to investigate those allegations.

If Trump refuses to resign, Gillibrand told CNN that Congress should launch a sweeping investigation into the President, who stands accused of sexually harassing or assaulting almost two dozen women.

"I've heard these women's testimony and many of them are heartbreaking", Gillibrand said. Almost 24 hours later, the White House sent along an email that, citing news reports that quoted witnesses, offered rebuttals to two of the accusations.
