President Donald Trump’s Twitter account is a powerful weapon. And perhaps its greatest asset is how it forces his enemies to make mistakes.

In a coordinated effort following the promised resignation of Democrat Al Franken from the Senate following revelations of sexual misconduct, female Democratic lawmakers, with help from the national media, are demanding President Trump resign from office because of unproven allegations of sexual harassment against him from years ago.

Leading the charge against President Trump is Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat from New York who used an interview on CNN to call on President Trump to resign.

Never one to take attacks lying down, Trump lit up Gillibrand on Twitter, calling her a lightweight who would “do anything” for campaign donations.

Then, another Trump opponents, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., (dubbed “Pocahontas” by President Trump for her claims of American Indian ancestry) tried to defend Gillibrand.

However, her tweet appeared to be misguided.

The tweet was especially ironic given how Trump’s enemies in the media were attempting to convey his attack on Gillibrand as a sexual insult.

The use of the term “slut-shame” by Warren was strange, because it would seemingly suggest Gillibrand not only performs sexual favors for campaign contributions but is proud of such actions.

Warren’s flub is an example of how Democrats are struggling to weaponize the new online-outrage culture without inadvertently turning it against themselves.

Gillibrand may also be on thin ice with her supposed moral outrage. While she claims outrage about accusations against Trump, in some cases from many years ago, she enthusiastically supported President Bill Clinton when it was politically advantageous, leading to charges of “opportunism” from commentators such as Tucker Carlson.

Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh pointed out how Gillibrand obtained her Senate seat, which was left open when Hillary Clinton became secretary of state under Barack Obama.

“There was a story leaked to the press that John Sweeney, her opponent, John Sweeney’s wife had called 911 to report that her husband was knocking her around the house. The police report was never produced, and his wife later said she never made the call. You remember this? I doubt that you do. Very few people do. But this is how she ends up being in the United States Senate. There’s a bogus call from somebody claiming to be Sweeney’s wife who says he beating her up inside the house, 911. The police report was never produced, and the wife later said she never made the call, and oddly enough, the Gillibrand campaign never denied leaking that story to the press, either,” he said.

He pointed out that Trump critics think the president “is insulting her sexually, her sexual character.”

“And they are flipping their wigs in the drive-by media,” he said.
