On Wednesday, former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on “CBS This Morning.”
During the interview, Biden spoke about Trump’s recent controversial tweet, in which he has been heavily criticized for going after Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.).
“Lightweight Senator Kirsten 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!” Trump tweeted.
Biden responded to the tweet by saying, “It’s disgusting. I never thought I’d say that about a president.”
He continued, saying, “These women deserve to be heard,” and added that “our children are listening.”
Senator Gillibrand also responded to Trump’s tweet during an interview on Wednesday.
“Well certainly that was how I and many people read it. It was certainly just a sexist smear intended to silence me. The president says whatever he wants whenever he wants. I don’t think that level of discourse, however, is what this country wants,” she said.
She continued, stating, “I think what he has done is unacceptable and if you put that in the context of multiple accusers who have accused him of sexual assault and sexual harassment that are credible, you need accountability.”
