Trump Fires Back after Democrat Senator Calls for His Resignation

    After washing their hands of their colleague Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), Democrats are making a play to force President Trump out of the White House over alleged sexual misconduct. The junior senator from New York, Kirsten Gillibrand, appears to be leading the charge:

    Trump was quick to fire back this morning, accusing the senator of hypocrisy and disloyalty:

    The Washington Post is calling Trump’s tweet “sexually suggestive and demeaning,” and Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski called his words “derogatory and disgusting.” Sen. Gillibrand herself called it a “sexist smear.”

    A cynical observer might conclude, as the president did, that Democrats know their policies are deeply unpopular and have resorted to what they do best: outrage politics and cultural bickering.
