Kirsten Gillibrand Fires Back After Trump's Revolting Twitter Smear

After being attacked in a tweet by President Donald Trump, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand fired back by letting him know that she, as well as other women, will not be silenced.


In a tweet on Tuesday morning, which was described by many as a form of sexual harassment, Trump whined about Gillibrand and said that in the past begged him for campaign donations and added that she "would do anything for them."

Gillibrand quickly responded, sending a strong message.

Trump's tweet marks just his latest attack against women and while it might seem to be a random outburst, it's certainly not a coincidence that Gillibrand targeted him the day prior. It's perhaps fitting that the Merriam-Webster’s word of the year for 2017 is "feminism" as the leader of the nation continues to prove his regressiveness on women's rights issues.

On Monday, the Democratic senator from New York called for Trump to resign on Monday in light of the several women who have accused him of sexual assault, or otherwise misconduct.
