TWEET OF THE DAY

BLAST FROM THE PAST

At Every day Kos on this date in 2017—Trump implies Sen. Gillibrand is a prostitute, provides Twitter assault for his assault victims:

Donald Trump began the day with a demeanment 2-in-1 during which he waved off each the Russia investigation and the voices of the seventeen (and counting) ladies who had spoken up about his sexual harassment.

Regardless of hundreds of hours wasted and plenty of tens of millions of {dollars} spent, the Democrats have been unable to point out any collusion with Russia – so now they’re transferring on to the false accusations and fabricated tales of girls who I don’t know and/or have by no means met. FAKE NEWS!

Sure. The Russia investigation has turned up nothing—aside from the 4 indictments and noose that’s tightening round Trump’s floppy pink tie. And the women are all a part of fabricated tales, just like the one Trump admitted to through the marketing campaign. Girls he by no means met: together with a number of contestants within the Miss USA or Miss Universe contest he undoubtedly met, a former contestant on The Apprentice he undoubtedly met, a employee in Trump Tower he undoubtedly met, a Mar-a-Lago visitor he undoubtedly met, and his ex-wife.

However in case it wasn’t clear simply what Trump thinks of girls generally, he adopted his first tweet with an attack on Senator Gillibrand during which he makes his views crystal clear.

Light-weight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a complete flunky for Chuck Schumer and somebody who would come to my workplace “begging” for marketing campaign contributions not so way back (and would do something for them), is now within the ring preventing in opposition to Trump. Very disloyal to Invoice & Crooked-USED!
