Kirsten Gillibrand Drops F-Bombs Like a Sailor! Blame Donald Trump!
"Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand swore like a sailor while blasting President Trump during a speech at New York University on Friday.
`Has he kept any of these promises? No. F-k No ... If we are not helping people, we should go the f-k home,` she told a crowd at the Personal Democracy Forum, according to CNN."
New York Post
Gillibrand has a history of using colorful language in public, nevertheless this is another example of how Donald Trump has coarsened political discourse. In the Trump era even "family values" politicians feel emboldened to spice up their speeches with as many expletives as scripture references.
Gillibrand`s liberal use of F-bombs may signal that she`s planning on running for president in 2020, thanks to Trump we don`t think a politician is being himself unless he sprinkles his speeches with obscenities.
Prior to Trump expletives and mildly offensive words like "pussy" only appeared in online publications, but now they appear in staid publications like The New York Times and The Washington Post.
In Gillibrand`s defense it`s impossible to talk about Trump and his policies without resorting to swear words. When talking with my friends and colleagues I usually refer to Trump as an orange f**k or a f**king Nazi.
It would be bad enough if Trump`s biggest sin was contributing to the coarsening of or culture, but his biggest crime is desentizing Americans to the needs of migrants, the poor and racial minorities. Under the Trump administration it`s become acceptable to bash immigrants, people of color and the poor and disadvantaged.
F**k Trump and his f**king inhumane policies. It`s time to impeach the F**king bastard!
