Trump dominates news cycle with tweet about Kirsten Gillibrand

Trump dominates news cycle with tweet about Kirsten Gillibrand

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Warren’s response was definite face-palm.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) tried to come to the defense of her colleague Sen. Kristin Gillibrand (D-NY) after President Donald Trump claimed that the latter used to beg him for campaign contributions “and would do anything for them.” Warren fired back on Twitter and asked Trump if he is “really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame” Gillibrand.

But this is another example of the media’s weird obsession with Trump’s Twitter account while ignoring other big stories go below the fold.

Gillibrand, Trump, Warren

So this all started after Gillibrand called for Trump to resign after the females who accused him of sexual misconduct have come back to the spotlight.

To no one’s shock, Trump went on Twitter to lash out at Gillibrand.

People assumed that part of the tweet where he says she would do anything for the contributions meant sexual favors. One of these people is Warren:

First of all, I love how females can badger men on social media or men can badger other men. But when you pick a fight or insult a female EHRMAHGERD PROTECT THE WEAK WOMAN. But it’s normal to come to the defense of your friends.

However, I know better than to use “slut-shame.” That phrase came into popularity during those infamous slut walks back in 2011. Females would say that when others criticized women for dressing scantily or sleeping around that they were “slut-shaming” the woman.

Reactions to Warren’s Tweet

Therefore, one could think that Warren is implying that Gillibrand has done something slutty.

Media Obsession With Trump’s Twitter Account

At the White House press briefing, ABC’s Cecilia Vega asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders what Trump meant in the tweet. From Mediate:

“What is he alleging would happen behind closed doors with her?” Vega asked.

“He’s not alleging anything,” Sanders replied. “He’s talking about the way that our system functions as it is. That politicians repeatedly beg for money, that’s not something new. And that comment, frankly, is not something new. If you look back at past comments this president has made, he’s used that same terminology many times in reference to men. There’s no way that this is sexist at all.”

Sanders also said that “your mind is in the gutter” if you read it as a sexual innuendo.

Sanders may have a point:

But this also shows how awful the media is for concentrating on Trump’s tweets and ignoring what else is happening behind closed doors. Axios’s Jim VandeHei tweeted that it’s been another day “consumed with a Trump tweet.” Everyone is concentrating on the tweet and not the fact that the GOP is pushing through a tax bill. VandeHei tweeted out a blog of his from last week about how Trump has a formula to manipulate the media and it works everything single time.

He sends out a tweet in the early morning, usually before 9AM. Data has shown that his tweets on fake news receives more retweets and likes. This then leads to top morning show Morning Joe to spend almost a whole hour on Trump’s tweet bomb while journalists keep hashing it out on the social media platform. Look at the press briefing today. Started off right away about Trump’s tweet about Gillibrand.

Lieawatha on the War Path!

They only have the power we give them. So don’t give them any.

The more the hysteric fascists scream and yell, the more we know they have something to hide.

This past presidential election is arguably the most consequential in our nation’s history.

We might have had a scoundrel named hillary klinton taking our way of life off a cliff after eight years of a weirdo traitor named barry obama trying desperately to do the same.

Thank God for Donald Trump,

Gillibrand’s “holier than thou” attitude makes me laugh every time she speaks.

VandeHei tweeted out a blog of his from last week about how Trump has a formula to manipulate the media and it works everything single time.

Holy cow, Trump’s been President for a year and these turkeys are just starting to figure out the tactics behind his tweet grenades?

I knew they were dumb and almost totally lacking in imagination, but I had …

… no …

… idea.

I never understood “slut-shame”. Why exactly shouldn’t one shame sluts? Isn’t sluttery inherently shameful?

    It sounded like a viable combination of words in the rubber room, and before they knew it, evolution happened, and it was too late to abort it.

    That said, this so deserves the feminists’ Slut Walk.

    Walk like a Feminist. Walk like a Slut. Walk like a feminist Slut.

    This Choice, and the baby on the barbie, will burden them for the foreseeable future.

    The annoying part in any particular case is probably not so much what it is as who is doing it.

    Do get back to me when Trump shows shame for any of his lies. You can start with the lie that Trump keeps repeating that he won’t benefit from the tax bill. There is even a special tax break for owners of golf courses. I wonder who might benefit from that?

Gillibrand started it; Trump finished it. Any questions?

We all know what Turnip’s tweet insinuated … and so did he … and so did lying Huckabee Sanders. I someone made the same comment to Huckabee Sanders … she’d damn well know what was insinuated. Regardless of the target … Turnip’s a vile slob.
