Trump Attacks Gillibrand Amid Accusations of Sexual Misconduct He Calls 'Fabricated'

Share

Gillibrand said on Monday that the recent avalanche of sexual harassment allegations against powerful men in politics, media and Hollywood - which led to the recent resignation of Democratic Sen.

"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.

And Trump pushed back against women accusing him of sexual misconduct, insisting he's the target of "false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don't know and/or have never met".

Trump has categorically denied the accusations, which were in focus at Monday afternoon's White House press briefing.

Not that anybody on Gillibrand's side particularly needed to defend her, being as how the notion of her offering sexual favors to Home Alone 2 star Donald Trump is utterly laughable.

The junior senator spoke with CNN on Monday about allegations against Trump that began emerging during the 2016 presidential campaign.

But while the special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Trump's ties to Russian Federation during last year's presidential campaign is ongoing, several recent developments indicate its pace is only accelerating.

Rep. Pete King, R-NY, responded to Trump's tweet about Gillibrand in an appearance on Fox Business, saying "the president would be better advised not to get into fights with all these people". She did not provide the list by late Monday. And Trump did so in a suggestive tweet that critics say demeans women.

More than a dozen women accused Trump during the campaign of sexual assault, groping and other harassment.

"Not only should women be heard, they should be believed".

"The insinuation in this tweet is clearly sexual and it's demeaning to women", BBC News anchor Katty Kay remarked. 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.
