Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA accused President Donald Trump of "slut" shaming Tuesday afternoon after the president said a female senator begged him for donations in visits to his office and "would do anything for them". Kirsten Gillibrand as someone who once "would do anything" for campaign contributions, a "total flunky for Chuck Schumer" and a "lightweight" - tweeting the personal insults a day after she called for his resignation over multiple sexual assault allegations.

"If @realDonaldTrump won't resign, Congress must investigate allegations by many, many women that he sexually assaulted and harassed them".

Samantha Holvey, a former Miss USA contestant who says Trump personally inspected her and other women prior backstage to the 2006 pageant, said the so-called #MeToo movement spurred them to come forward again.

Trump responded Tuesday, tweeting Gillibrand used to "come to [his] office "begging" for campaign contributions", alleging she "would do anything for them". "We're private citizens and for us to put ourselves out there to try and show America who this man is and how he views women, and for them to say, 'Eh, we don't care, ' it hurt".

Last week Gillibrand was the first senator to call for Al Franken, D-Minn., to resign amid allegations that he inappropriately touched and kissed several women.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., center, listens to a staffer before answering questions at a news conference, Tuesday, Dec. 12, 2017, on Capitol Hill in Washington.

In a press conference, Gillibrand continued to blast the president for his comments, calling his tweet a "sexist smear attempting to silence" her voice.

It's debatable whether Trump's tweet meets the dictionary definition of "slut shaming", but as of this writing Warren's tweet has gotten more retweets and favorites than Trump's original.

Three women who have previously accused President Donald Trump of sexual harassment are sharing their stories on NBC's "Megyn Kelly Today".

"You can not 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", Gillibrand fired back.

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski calls for female White house staffers to turn on President Trump.

'I'd be telling Dejan Lovren off' - Sam Allardyce rubbishes Liverpool penalty complaints
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp must make do without left-back Alberto Moreno, who has an ankle injury. He added: 'They had three shots on target, we had two.

As presidential responses go, this one seemed nastier than most of Trump's usual retorts. (Trump himself has been accused of sexual misconduct by 19 women and counting.) Still, it was jarring to see the RNC piggyback on the president's disgusting remarks with an attack of its own. And Monday four accusers held a news conference in NY and three were interviewed at length by Megyn Kelly on NBC's Today show.
