Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has been using some choice language in recent weeks, reflecting her party’s new strategy of debasing the institution of the presidency of the United States because they have decided the current office holder is not worthy of the office. In a recent speech, she decided to use salty language to express her frustration with Washington politics.
Gillibrand, who has been floated as a possible 2020 candidate for the Democrats, spoke Thursday in front of a Personal Democracy Forum in New York City. She launched into an F-bomb-laced tirade against President Donald J. Trump, in a stark contrast to the 2016 campaign where Democrats lambasted then-candidate Trump for his language — and warned “our children our watching.”
“Has he kept his promises? No, F*ck No!,” she said.
She also had a stark warning for other lawmakers, presumably including fellow Democrats, about being productive in Congress.
“If we are not helping people, we should go the f— home,” she said.

In April, she used a similar line in an interview with New York Magazine while talking about being a newbie in the Senate and not knowing how to get a bill passed.
“‘How do I do this? I have no f*cking clue,’” she recalled for the magazine.
Gillibrand’s fiery language Friday prompted cheers and applause from those gathered for the Personal Democracy Forum, a New York City conference of political activists and tech enthusiasts.
It seems to be part of a wider strategy of Democrats to be edgier in the wake of their defeat in November.
