President Trump called-out Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand on social media Tuesday morning, blasting the New York legislator for getting “in the ring against Trump” after she “begged” him for campaign contributions.
The President lashed-out at the liberal lawmaker on twitter early Tuesday morning, calling the Senator a “lightweight” and a “total flunky for Chuck Schumer,” adding the New York legislator was “very disloyal to Bill & Crooked [Hillary].”
“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!” Trump tweeted.

The President’s comments come hours after Gillibrand called for Trump’s resignation over unfounded reports of sexual misconduct before he took office.
The Senator fired-back at Trump on twitter, saying she “cannot” be silenced.
“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,” she posted.

Franken QUITS SENATE Over Multiple Sex Scandals
Disgraced liberal lawmaker Al Franken resigned from the United State Senate on Thursday, stepping down after multiple women came forward and accused the legislator of inappropriate sexual misconduct.
Franken announced his resignation during a speech on the floor of the Senate, saying he plans to quit in the “coming weeks.
“I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate”
“Today I am announcing that in the coming weeks I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate,” said the Senator.
“I, of all people, am aware that there’s some irony that I am leaving while a man who’s bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office, and that a man who preys on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party,” he added.
Franken’s fall from grace began weeks ago, when a news anchor publicly accused the Senator of forcibly kissing and groping her while the two toured the Middle East. Days later, multiple women came forward and accused the legislator of inappropriately “grabbing” them while taking photographs.
SEE YA: Charlie Rose TERMINATED at CBS over Sex Scandal
CBS host and legendary journalist Charlie Rose was fired from CBS News on Tuesday after multiple reports of sexual misconduct and harassment came to light this week, with the network releasing a statement saying they “terminated” Rose for his “extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior.”
“A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose’s employment with CBS News, effective immediately,” said CBS News President David Rhodes. “This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program.”
“Despite Charlie’s important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace — a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work. We need to be such a place,” he added.
Rose, who is 75-years-old, released a statement regarding the accusations, saying he was “embarrassed” but claimed “not all of these allegations are accurate.”
“I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate,” said Rose. “I always felt that I pursued shared feelings though I now realize that I was mistaken.”
