He sent the post after Gillibrand called for the president to resign due to allegations of sexual misconduct.

What a fucking sexist pig.

Pushing into the sexual harassment debate, President Donald Trump laced into Sen. "There's no way" his tweet was sexist, she said, and only people with their minds in the gutter would read anything sexual into it. But it's important to note she wasn't the only senator pushing for him to step down.

In fact, Gillibrand's acquisition of a mocking nickname might be a sign that Trump views her as a long-term political threat.

Former first lady Michelle Obama said in her Democratic National Convention speech a year ago that "When they go low, we go high", referring to the tone of the Republican presidential campaign. "Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!" the President tweeted.

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) was at Tuesday morning Bible study-a rare bipartisan activity on Capitol Hill-with Sen.

"You can not 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", Gillibrand responded on Tuesday.

According to CNN, while Phillips refused to make Craig and Mullins a wedding cake, he did offer to make them other baked goods . The two phobias that tragically animate so much our public culture in this period are homophobia and anti-Muslim bigotry.

Gillibrand responded to the tweet at a news conference on Tuesday, condemning Trump's remark that she "would do anything" for donations.

His daughter Ivanka Trump, donated $2,000 to Gillibrand in 2014.

His broadside against Gillibrand was the latest example of Trump hurling a provocative, if vague, attack that was open to interpretation, allowing him to distance himself from criticism that he's being inflammatory. "He is an admitted sexual predator and the only thing that will stop him is his resignation", Hirono said.

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., called it "an ugly and suggestive tweet, and we all know what he was trying to say there, and it is beneath the office of the presidency".

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. Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic, being an exception, saying he "didn't think it was appropriate at all".

"I've heard these women's testimony and many of them are heartbreaking", Gillibrand said.

Trump has denied the women's claims. Almost 24 hours later, the White House sent along an email that, citing news reports that quoted witnesses, offered rebuttals to two of the accusations.
