Kirsten Gillibrand Responds To Trump’s Vulgar Tweet About Her

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand fires back at Trump after he appeared to sexually harass her on Twitter.

Trump found himself back in the spotlight on Tuesday after four women who had previously accused him of sexual harassment called on Congress to investigate their allegations and those of other women.

NBC News reported that: “Jessica Leeds, Samantha Holvey and Rachel Crooks, appearing together on “Megyn Kelly Today” on Monday, described separate interactions with the president in years past.”

At a separate press conference Monday, the four women said Congress should investigate the accusations against the president, expressing concern that even as other powerful men are being held accountable, Trump remains exempt.

“Things were flying all over the place” after the Weinstein story, Leeds said. “And it became apparent that in some areas the accusations of sexual aggression were being taken seriously and people were being held accountable, except for our president, and he was not being held accountable,” she added.

NBC News reported in a separate article that fifty-six Democratic lawmakers called on the House to investigate the misconduct claims lodged against Trump.

In a letter to committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., and ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., the Democratic Women’s Working Group wrote that the country deserves “a full inquiry into the truth of these allegations.”

“At least 17 women have publicly accused the President of sexual misconduct,” the letter, which was signed by 56 lawmakers, said. “We cannot ignore the multitude of women who have come forward with accusations.”

Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York took to her Twitter account Monday, tweeting that: “President Trump should resign. But, of course, he won’t hold himself accountable. Therefore, Congress should investigate the multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations against him.”

True to form, Trump hit back Tuesday morning, first with a broad tweet calling the allegations “fabricated stories” and falling back on his usual cry of “FAKE NEWS!”

“Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia – so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!” he tweeted.

Less than an hour later, he followed up with a tweet that is being described by many in the media as constituting sexual harassment.

“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. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!” he tweeted.

As Variety reported, “A number of Trump’s critics immediately found his tweet itself a form of harassment and took it as suggestive innuendo about a female. Mika Brzezinski said on “Morning Joe” that it was ‘derogatory and disgusting.'”

Brzezinski also took to her own Twitter account to respond to Trump’s harassment of Gillibrand.

Deadline Hollywood elaborated, reporting that:

Trump had tweeted this morning, that New York’s Dem Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand used to come to his office “begging” for campaign contributions, adding she “would do anything for them.”

Trump’s vulgar sexual implication that Gillibrand offered to have sex with him in order to secure campaign contributions seemed to make Gillibrand’s previous day call for him to step down from office.

Gillibrand herself is hitting back, tweeting that he could not “silence her.”

“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 tweeted.

The White House remains rather quiet about the allegations, telling NBC News on Monday that the claims were “false” and that “the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory” to Trump last year.
