When Donald Trump feels as if he has been wronged, he famously “hits back 10 times stronger.” He certainly did not know who he was messing with when he attacked the Democratic Senator Kristen Gillibrand, and then Senator Elizabeth Warren smacked him right between the eyes with her tweet.

It all started when Senator Gillibrand of New York told CNN that the president should resign due to the allegations a growing number of women have brought against him for sexual assault. She was not alone, but is a woman leading the charge, so Trump attacked her. She said:

‘President Trump has committed assault, according to these women, and those are very credible allegations of misconduct and criminal activity, and he should be fully investigated and he should resign. These allegations are credible; they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking.’

Then, the senator who has been a vocal opponent of sexual assault in the military continued:

‘(If he does not) immediately resign (Congress) should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.’

That was when Trump hit back with a sexually suggestive twitter attack:

‘Lightweight Senator Kristen Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer 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. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!’

Gillibrand answered a few questions, according to MSNBC:

‘I see it as a sexist smear. I mean, that’s what it is. It’s intended to silence me (and) part of the President’s effort at name-calling.

She continued:

‘It’s not going to silence me. It’s not going to silence the women who have stood up against him directly. And it’s not going to silence the millions of women out there that have been speaking out every day since his inauguration about things they disagree with.’

That is when Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic senator from Massachusetts, came out swinging with her tweet:

‘Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand)? Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.
