Brzezinski slams Trump for 'derogatory and disgusting' Gillibrand tweet

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday said President TrumpDonald TrumpWarren says Republican party 'eating itself and it is discovering that the meal is poisonous' More than 75 Asian, LGBTQ groups oppose anti-Asian crime bill McConnell says he's 'great admirer' of Liz Cheney but mum on her removal MORE in a tweet suggested that Sen.

Brzezinski called it "reprehensible" that Trump would say something so "derogatory and disgusting" about a woman. She tore into Trump, saying he treats women like "punching bags."

"Let's just say it," she said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"He's suggesting that Kirsten Gillibrand would have sex with him in order to get campaign contributions. The president actually tweeted that this morning."


Her comments came after President Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that Gillibrand would "do anything" for campaign contributions.

"Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck SchumerChuck SchumerBiden 'encouraged' by meeting with congressional leaders on infrastructure Republicans welcome the chance to work with Democrats on a bipartisan infrastructure bill Cheney sideshow distracts from important battle over Democrats' partisan voting bill MORE and someone who would come to my office 'begging' for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump," he tweeted.

"Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!"

Gillibrand on Tuesday responded to the tweet, saying Trump could not silence her.

"You cannot 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," she tweeted.

The exchange came a day after Gillibrand said Trump should resign from office because of the accusations of sexual misconduct numerous women have made against him.
