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".
"This was serial misconduct and perversion on the part of Mr. Trump", said Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist who accused Trump of kissing her without permission in 2005, according to CNN.
Gillibrand "would come to my office "begging" for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them)", Trump wrote.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday she would provide a list of eyewitnesses who could allegedly prove Trump's innocence. 'Is everyone OK?' You know, they're standing there with no clothes. Ivanka: You stepped in there to talk for women to speak for women to have a platform for women.
Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) was at Tuesday morning Bible study-a rare bipartisan activity on Capitol Hill-with Sen.
"Pointing to the tweet, in which Trump called Gillibrand a "total flunky", Clark argued that women know the president is "'that guy' - the insecure sexual predator who bullies any woman who dares to hold him accountable".More news: Tear gas fired at anti-Trump protesters near Lebanon US embassy

Congresswoman Lois Frankel, who authored the letter from dozens of female lawmakers calling on the House oversight committee to investigate Trump, said the surge of women publicizing their harrowing accounts of harassment could mark an important turning point.
Shortly after the first tweet, Trump hit back at Gillibrand, saying she used to beg him donations.
Gillibrand directly responded to Trump on Twitter, writing, "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". "You don't care about women". All the alleged incidents took place prior to Trump's assuming the presidency. "This is simply talking about a system that we have that is broken in which special interests control our government and I don't think that there's probably many people that are more controlled by political contributions than the senator the president referenced", Sanders said, expanding on the president's tweet with a more serious charge.
The Melrose Democrat added that Gillibrand's record of standing up for women "should really terrify" Trump.
What's more, the day before the accusers' press conference, Trump's pick to represent the country before the United Nations - Republican Nikki Haley - said the accusers were right to come forward. (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.
