President Donald Trump appeared to sexually harass a Democratic senator on Twitter, less than an hour after denying sexual misconduct allegations by nearly two dozen women.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) joined four other senators to call on Trump to resign over the allegations, which stretch back over the past four decades.

The president denounced the claims as “fake news” in a Tuesday morning tweet, insisting he’d never even met his accusers, and then seemed to sexually harass Gillibrand in a subsequent tweet.

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

Trump gave $4,800 to Gillibrand’s campaign in September 2010, when he also contributed $10,000 to the Democratic Committee of New York State.

Other Twitter users noticed the president’s choice of language and asked what the tweet was supposed to imply about the senator.
