On Monday, Democrat Sen. Kristen Gillibrand appeared on CBS “This Morning.”
Of course, running for the White House Gillibrand has to draw distinctions between herself and the man who currently occupies the Oval Office, Donald Trump. That’s just the nature of campaigning, you have to give voters a reason to take a look at you. Why and how are you different than the person currently in office?
Fine, sure. But at one point during her comments, Gillibrand makes the comment that “we need someone who is going to look out for other people’s children.” The other stuff she says, you could theoretically make the argument for or against, depending on what side of the political aisle you fall on.
But to say that “we need someone who is going to look out for other people’s children” and you voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection bill, you kind of forfeit the right to make that argument.
There's no question that President Trump has created so much division and darkness in our country, and it's at the forefront of Americans' minds in this election. We need a president who'll restore what we've lost: our compassion, our moral integrity, our leadership in the world. pic.twitter.com/JQrPmbtkqr
