MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski is livid about Trump’s vile sexist attack on Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. And she didn’t pull any punches when she went after him Tuesday morning. Bravo Mika!
On Tuesday morning, Donald Trump tweeted out a disgusting attack on Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), suggesting that she gave him sexual favors in return for campaign donations.
“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!”

After reading his tweet, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski absolutely went off on Trump. She put into words what many women across the country were thinking after reading this gross tweet.
Mika said it was “reprehensible” that Trump said something so “derogatory and disgusting” about a woman. The Morning Joe co-host was furious.
“Let’s just say it,” Mika began.
“He’s suggesting that Kirsten Gillibrand would have sex with him in order to get campaign contributions. The president actually tweeted that this morning.”
But she admitted that she wasn’t surprised by Trump’s tweet.
She said directly to Trump,
“You do it all the time. You treat women terribly. And you treat the women around you even worse. You treat women like punching bags because it’s fun for you, because you are intimidated by women. That’s your problem.”
“But for the people who work for you? You need to act. Sarah Huckabee Sanders good luck today in the briefing. Don’t lie. And do not defend the President of the United States for what he did. If you do, you have no credibility.”
Mika and the other women on the Morning Joe panel really laid into Trump. Bravo ladies. Thank you for speaking truth about our disgusting president.
Kirsten Gillibrand responded to Trump’s tweet on Tuesday saying, “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.”
