When Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) called on Donald Trump to resign or face a Congressional investigation after he was accused by several women of various forms of sexual assault, she was immediately chastised for her political opportunism—a valid accusation considering her possible 2020 run for president.
Gillibrand has based her entire political career on so-called women’s issues. When she ran for re-election in 2012, Gillibrand earned the full endorsement of Feminist Majority, an organization committed to “empower feminists, who are the majority, and to win equality for women at the decision-making tables of the state, nation, and the world.”
So, when the avalanche of sexual harassment and assault accusations occurred, Gillibrand wasn’t jumping on the anti-Trump bandwagon; she was celebrating the fact that the issue had finally caught up to her and her agenda.
And Gillibrand isn’t letting it end with sexual harassment. Much like Trump who is rebranding the Republican Party into the Trumplican Party by getting rid of conservatives, Gillibrand is working on ways to rebrand the Democrat Party into the “Femicrat Party,” using a host of other issues near and dear to the feminist cause in order to get rid of “undesirable” Democrats.
Of course, one of those issues is women’s health, particularly the unlimited right to murder unborn children. On that issue, Gillibrand is teaming up with Gloria Steinem, NARAL, Move On.org., Democracy for America, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, and the Human Rights Campaign to form an unofficial coalition designed to defeat Democrats who don’t march in lock-step with the pro-abortion agenda of the left.
One of the reasons Roy Moore lost the Alabama special election was the huge support women voters gave Doug Jones due to the allegations of sexual assault against Moore. Meanwhile, the Fellowship of Pharisees continue to defend Trump’s sexual indiscretions because they weren’t voting for a “Pastor-in-Chief,” and Trump now claims that the Democrats are only making it an issue because the Russia investigation has failed—which it hasn’t.
With the 2018 election already looking bad, the GOP would be wise to pay attention to Gillibrand. This Femicrat stuff is right up her alley, and it could make her president in 2020.
