Ingraham: Sen. Gillibrand ‘fully weaponized #MeToo movement’ for one reason…to target Trump

It’s all politics.

During the Monday night edition of The Ingraham Angle, Fox News host Laura Ingraham suggested that New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has some pretty sinister motives for her unconditional support for the #MeToo movement, motives that have nothing to do with real justice.

Although she once accepted money and support from the Clintons, the Gillibrand of late has been content to toss anyone accused of anything under the bus, even members of her own party like former Senator Al Franken and even Bill Clinton himself, with the end goal in mind of “weaponizing” the #MeToo movement to win votes for Democrats and, ultimately, to go after President Trump himself.

Watch:

“Congress should hold him accountable. We are obligated to have hearings,” said Gillibrand of the allegations against Trump, allegations which the public has been aware of since before the election.

But Ingraham was having none of it.

“Gillibrand has fully weaponized the #MeToo hashtag movement,” said the Fox News host, “with the intention of driving the female vote in the midterms, and ultimately sweeping herself into the Oval Office [in 2020]. And while we all condemn actual abuse and harassment in all it’s forms, regardless of where it occurs, the last time I checked, jobs, the economy, healthcare, and education were still the top issues for voters, including women.”

After wondering aloud whether the New York senator was going to give back the money the Clintons donated to her campaign, Ingraham gave a warning to Republicans using the words of Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who said Democrats would “crawl over broken glass to vote in the midterms.”

“The left is really busy marshaling their allies, their resources, across the cultural and political spectrum to make the president toxic to women, and to ultimately drive him from office,” said the Fox News host.

“If they turn the women’s vote by just a few percentage points, it could be the difference in 2020.”

Not all is lost, but it’s going to take some work.

“Most women want greater economic opportunities, safe streets, solid public schools for their kids, and healthcare that covers the big stuff,” Ingraham concluded. “And the president is doing more on all those fronts than I think the past two presidents combined, and he needs to sell this directly to voters, especially women voters. Directly.”
