One day after several women reincarnated the narrative of “Trump as sexual predator”, early on Tuesday morning President Trump slammed New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for coming to his office “begging” for donations, and as someone who “would do anything for them.” Trump’s attack against Gillibrand comes a day after the New York Democrat said Trump should resign from the presidency because of the renewed accusations numerous women have made against him for sexual misconduct.

Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Gillibrand said the accusations against Trump are “credible” and should be investigated, and that the president should resign. Just a few hours later, Trump was on Twitter – after taking an unexpected sabbatical from his favorite social network – and calling Gillibrand a “flunky” for Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and a “lightweight” lawmaker. He also made a reference to Gillibrand’s statement this month that President Clinton should have resigned from office, calling her “very disloyal” for the former president.

Senator Gillibrand has been a frequent voice against sexual harassment, and made a name for herself in the Senate by pushing for reforms to the military. She’s been in the center of the news over the last week as allegations of sexual misconduct against men in politics, entertainment, the media and other fields have washed through the headlines.

Gillibrand, driven by her 2020 presidential ambitions – she is seen by many as a 2020 Democratic candidate for the White House – was the first Democratic senator to call on Sen. Al Franken to resign last week. Last month she said that Clinton should have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky affair.
