Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat Senator from New York, is busy tweeting feminist nonsense phrases after gaining a bit more fame for saying that Al Franken is gross and should resign.
Of course, she wasn’t the only one who thought Franken should turn in his office keys, but Gillibrand has a long history of being a feminist champion. Before Obama left office, Gillibrand was a member of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel where she cheered on a change to allow women into all combat roles despite lengthy studies that suggested we ladies are more prone to injury and are less capable of helping injured soldiers due to our weak, girly arms.
So, here’s Gillibrand:
Women are a force to be reckoned with. We won’t be silenced.

“Women, A Force To Be Reckoned With” sounds like a terrible Star Wars reboot, not a rallying cry to other very brave women.
Scott Levin (no relation to Mark Levin), a television news anchor in Buffalo, New York, was questioning the Senator about other aspects of her brave stance to remove sexual abusers from office. At a conference, Levin was one of the people allowed to ask one of two off-topic questions, so he asked her for an opinion on Bill Clinton and where she was when Clinton was accused of sexual harassment. Gillibrand didn’t answer and when Levin attempted to follow up on his show, you can see in the linked video below that she said they were having technical difficulties, that she didn’t hear the question and cut the interview off.
The interview was literally cut off — the live feed from the Senator’s office was turned off and replaced with a sign saying “Good night, United States Senate Recording Studio.”
Before the conference, CNN’s April Ryan asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders if Trump was going to apologize to Gillibrand for a tweet that indicated she was “begging for campaign contributions” from Chuck Schumer. The reporter said that “many” people think that it’s sexual innuendo, but Sarah responded, “I think only if your mind is in the gutter would you have read it that way… so no, [Trump won’t apologize.]”
Joe from Morning Joe had a mild meltdown over the tweet, saying that Trump is “suggesting that Kirsten Gillibrand would have sex with [Chuck] in order to get campaign contributions. The President actually tweeted that this morning.”
Gillibrand responded to the tweet saying that:
“It was a sexist smear attempting to silence my voice, and I will not be silenced on this issue, neither will the women who stood up against the president on this issue…”
Many people have requested to see the interview I did yesterday with @SenGillibrand where I attempted to ask her some…
