New York Senator Kristen Gillibrand started a feud with President Donald Trump in what has become a bizarre turn in U.S. politics.
Gillibrand demanded that the duly elected President of the United States resign over unproven allegations of sexual misconduct, and what surely must be a flashback for conservatives to the Clinton era.
Donald Trump was not going to play beanbag with the New York Senator over the accusation and lit her up on Twitter:
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. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!

Gillibrand responded with the strawman argument that the president cannot “silence” her or millions of women:
You cannot 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. https://t.co/UbQZqubXZv

The escalation of the feud continues a liberal Democratic trope that the president is on the frontlines of the “war on women” and resisting his presidency is a call to arms for all women. Gillibrand should consider how well that worked out for Hillary Clinton.
