On Tuesday, President Trump attacked pandering Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with alacrity after Gillibrand said on national television that there should be a Congressional investigation into allegations of Trump’s sexual abuse. Trump tweeted:
This prompted the media to accuse Trump of sexual harassment.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) led the charge:
Slut shame? Really?
And on Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski suggested that Ivanka Trump should step in and stop her father from sexual harassment. Yes, really. She stated, “He’s suggesting that Kirsten Gillibrand would have sex with him in order to get campaign contributions. The president actually tweeted that this morning.”
Here’s CNN’s Chris Cillizza:
This is asinine. Trump routinely uses such language. Here’s Trump about Mitt Romney in 2016, for example:
Was Trump sexually harassing Romney?
But the Left has now boiled down sexual harassment to “anything mean we don’t like.” That’s an easy way to let actual sexual harassers off the hook, and it’s a counterproductive way of targeting Trump. But anti-Trump rage trumps rationality in the world of the Left.
