New York Democratic Sen. Kristen Gillibrand faces backlash for tweet

Anyone and everyone is currently being mentioned as a potential Democratic presidential 2020 candidate. One of those names that is commonly thrown around in New York Sen. Kristen Gillibrand.

She, like Beto and Bernie, is a media favorite. I mean she’s a woman and she’s a Democrat, that’s really all the media really needs to be in love with a candidate. However, unfortunately, a recent tweet from Gillibrand has several people upset.

In a tweet sent Wednesday afternoon, Gillibrand essentially reminded everyone that Democrats are still interested in identity politics.

Yes, nothing says equality like an elected official stating that a group of people should be valued over another simply because of their gender. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that, uh, I don’t know, sexist?

Well, Gillibrand is getting backlash and rightfully so.
