President Donald Trump is being accused of “slut-shaming” and committing “verbal sexual assault” against one of several U.S. senators calling for his resignation.
On Monday, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, D, blasted the president after Trump claimed that Gillibrand used to beg him for campaign contributions before she was “in the ring fighting against Trump.”
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!

Gillibrand said she would not be silenced.
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. https://t.co/UbQZqubXZv

Sen. Gillibrand is one of several Democrats calling on President Trump to resign from office after a group of women came forward to claim that the president sexually harassed them. On Monday, Megyn Kelly interviewed three of Trump’s accusers on “Megyn Kelly Today.”
“President Trump has committed assault, according to these women, and those are very credible allegations of misconduct and criminal activity, and he should be fully investigated and he should resign,” Gillibrand told CNN.
“These allegations are credible; they are numerous,” she added. “I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking.”
Many believe Trump’s Tuesday tweet firing back at Gillibrand, noting how she “would do anything” for campaign contributions, is sexually suggestive.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., accused the president of “slut-shaming” Gillibrand.
Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted. https://t.co/mYJtBZfxiu

MSNBC contributor Scott Dworkin said the president’s tweet was “a form of verbal sexual assault” and demanded that Trump resign.
Trump insinuating Senator Kirsten Gillibrand would perform sexual favors for campaign contributions is a form of verbal sexual assault. No one can condone this sort of talk from a public official, especially the president of the United States. He must resign for this. He must.
