To be fair here, of all the things that one could accuse Donald Trump of, " he's rude to women" is the least treasonous.

I really can't think of a better response.
 
2017-12-12 10:19:10 AM  
I wish she wouldn't do the Twitter thing.  Don't play by his rules on his home field.  She has access to other means and venues to exercise her voice.
 
2017-12-12 10:19:13 AM  
She should make fun if his hands. That would be hilarious!
 
2017-12-12 10:19:47 AM  
She just got herself a crap-ton in free advertising...

Hmm... I would think treating people with respect would be a pretty important quality in someone who has as much power as the POTUS.
 
2017-12-12 10:20:26 AM  
Damn. Now I wish Franken would have waited and said "I'll resign when you do, Donald. Call me when you're ready, and we'll do it together."

I disagree. There is no need for her to resort to such pettiness

Least treasonous, but still morally bankrupt like a senator from the Greedy Old Perverts party.

But, treason is the reason for the season.

It starts off a bit weak with the "you can't silence me" but it ends strong.  It could have been better but it made the point it needed to make.  Overall not bad for a moderate Democrat, they usually do a lot worse.
 
2017-12-12 10:22:21 AM  
I know it doesn't matter and nothing will ever come of this and no one in power will ever be held accountable, but all he really did was amplify her statements.

I see your point, but that would suggest a degree of moral equivalence.

There is none.

Franken had no choice but to resign.  He was being blackballed by his own party.  If he had remained he would have been stripped of all committee membership and ignored.

Three Senate Democratic men suggested Trump should resign, and he said nothing.

But when a Senate Democratic woman said the same thing, Trump went on the attack. What a chickenshiat.

I'm kind of interested to know if she ever actually asked him for a cent.  I'm doubtful.  Plus he lies about that shiat constantly.
 
2017-12-12 10:25:42 AM  
LOL - that's gonna leave a mark.  I bet Trump grabbed his phone and headed straight for the crapper.  "CLEAR MY SCHEDULE TODAY!"

Didn't deny what?  Spell out the accusation.  I want to hear exactly what the president is implying Sen. Gillibrand would do for donations.

2017-12-12 10:26:37 AM  
I can't imagine that many of the #MAGA voters get excited when Trump attacks a Senator they've never heard of. But if you're a Democrat, this just fires you up even more.

All the brogressives are out in force against Gillibrand. She's their replacement for Hillary for the next few years.

Then again, sometimes the thing that takes someone out is one of those unsuspected things. Like "it's not the crime, it's the cover-up". At some point the hubris makes someone take the wrong step, even when you thought they'd made all the wrong steps already, by all rights should never have gotten as far as they did, had hundreds of worse things about them. Al Capone's taxes. So don't worry about the exact nature of the final straw. All the straws before it were part of a set-up. All we need is that the final straw is now enough.

Franken was the "sacrifice" ..thrown to the wolves..so now Gillibrand THINKS she has some kind of "moral high ground"  when she is just cashing in on a wave that has reached it's peak..

women ARE fed up. Gillibrand is a farkING POLITICIAN. She is just cashing in on it, that's all.

Until she BEGS FORGIVENESS FOR farkING OVER FRANKEN..

I will always call her shiat out for exactly what it is..politics and nothing more. always.

Did any of you (us) ever imagine a time when US politics would be played out on Twitter?

I am just waiting for The Meteor to win next time :(

Did she take Trump money?
 
2017-12-12 10:30:03 AM  
So, our CinC is having a public twitter slap fight, specifically singling out a female senator, denying the general validity of sexual harassment claimants?

Yeah, this is making America great.  No one, no one has to have been so stupid as to genuinely believe the man when he stood on that stage and said that he alone could fix America.  Voting for that man has to have been intentionally destructive.  I mean, look at him.  No one, any where, at any time respects that man.

Yep, and said party is going to realize how pointless that was.   They shamed Franken out over minor things, while Trump, Moore and the rest of the GOP point and laugh at their stupidity while consolidating power over every branch of government.

But hey, Gillibrand wrote a nice tweet, so they have that going for them, which is nice.

Resigning over harassment claims is only for liberals.

So much "concern."

If Two Scoops hadnt mouthed off, she wouldnt have had to say anything. Social media reaches more people now than traditional media. You might prefer her response go unseen on CSPAN or as an aside on Rachel Maddow, but this got the point across faster and to more people.

Amen.  But Democrats can be expected to rise to the bait.  Most of the country is out doing the awful things they have to do just to get by, and we're all sticking up for poor Kirsten Gillibrand.  Who is representing "women" exactly as much as may be politically advantageous to her personally

It seems to me like Twitter is the ultimate primary source.  Exactly what someone wrote, exactly how and when they wrote it.  No filters.

She brought it on herself. I mean, that's what people say to ME all the farking time..when I do shiat that I can't help even, that is part of my damn disability and I cannot control..

she brought it on herself by being EVIL though. My actions were always out of illness..hers is just delberate farking over someone to get a step up herself.

She KNOWS probably that Franken wasn't guilty, but didn't care. There is a huge difference between something done out of deliberate evil and malice and some simple farking mistakes.

and I won't personally attack anyone here for thinking differently than me, but I know that I will get plenty of personal attacks in response to this. I don't care.

If she really felt the way she says she does about Trump, and it's not politics, she would have voted for impeachment when it came up, but didn't. fark her.

She is a glory hound in it for herself, not to help women. I SEE IT.
