Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) on Thursday said Republicans are giving President Trump a license to continue his “viciously sexist comments” by continuing to support him.

Trump earlier Thursday attacked the "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski's appearance, calling her “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and saying that she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when he saw her late last year at his Florida resort.

“It’s up to everyone to reject this behavior. By not speaking out, my GOP colleagues are complicit in the sexism & bigotry incited by Trump,” Lee wrote in a series of tweets.

She began by asking Republicans who generally support Trump to explain to her three granddaughters “why they think these viciously sexist comments are acceptable from our President.”

She added that Trump behaves like his words do not have consequences because of the support he has among members of his party, and urged Republicans to reject his behavior.
