Gillibrand slammed for ‘future is female’ comment, but Rubio wins America for response that’s pure red, white & blue

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand set herself up for a wave of backlash after a ridiculous claim that the future is “female” and “intersectional.”

The New York Democrat wore her progressive cap in a tweet rife with identity politics on Tuesday, and quickly got torched by those on both sides of the political aisle, including President Donald Trump’s son.

“Our future is: Female, Intersectional, Powered by our belief in one another. And we’re just getting started,” Gillibrand tweeted.

The potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate was immediately slammed for her apparent pandering.

“Our future is: AMERICAN,” Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted in response mocking the Democrat.

The Florida Republican rebuked Gillibrand’s divisive identity politics with a reminder of America’s founding ideals.

Donald Trump Jr. also criticized the tweet for the message it was sending to his sons and that probably will not resonate with voters.

Nate Silver, writer and FiveThirtyEight founder, assessed Gillibrand’s tweet and her attempt to “position” herself.

The woman once known as a centrist Democrat with moderate views on immigration and guns appears to be swinging to an extreme in order to reach some voters. But her vocal stand on #MeToo issues earned her the ire of many in her own party as she led the charge to remove former Sen. AL Franken from office amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Betsy McCaughey, former lieutenant governor of New York, slammed Gillibrand’s “outrageous” comments during an appearance on Fox Business with Trish Regan on Wednesday.

McCaughey called out the New York Democrat for basically “saying the Democratic party is the party of victims right? And by definition, the Republicans are therefore the oppressors. That is not what leadership is about. We need to unite people around the issues that everybody cares about.”

Twitter users added to the barrage of backlash over Gillibrand’s pandering tweet.
