The following article, 2020 Dem Appears to Incite Violence Against POTUS, Aims to ‘Punch Trump In the Face’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Another day, another Democrat saying something silly.
Today’s honor goes to New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
The far-left 2020 presidential candidate may stand zero chance of defeating President Trump – or even members of her own party for the Democrat nomination – but that won’t stop her from claiming the goal is to “punch” POTUS “in the face.”

From The Nation:
The morning after her packed event in Davenport, I follow Gillibrand south to Muscatine—she is on a Mississippi River tour, visiting some of the Iowa counties that flipped from Obama to Trump in 2016—and she seeks me out to make sure I’ll be at her official campaign kickoff that coming Sunday, outside of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in New York. “We’re gonna punch Trump in the face!” she tells me, smiling broadly, literally jumping up and down. “It’s the New York way!” Then she hops in her car to race to her next event.
So inciting violence against someone is ok if you’re on the left like Joan & the senator.

You’re not inciting violence, are you?

Why is @SenGillibrand inciting violence? So reckless….

New York recently passed a bill allowing late-term abortions.
Therefore, it only seems right that a New York Democrat running for president would say she supports “X” as a third gender option.
From CBS News:
New York Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a 2020 candidate, endorsed federal implementation of a third gender listing for Americans who identify as non-binary. Speaking at an LGBTQ-focused meet and greet in New Hampshire on Friday, Gillibrand emphatically said “yes” about recognizing “X” as a third gender marker.
Will the other Dems running in 2020 come out and echo Gillibrand’s words?
Does Gillibrand have a shot at her party’s nomination?
Kirsten was the fourth Democrat to enter the 2020 race.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand launched a presidential exploratory committee Tuesday night, joining the crowded Democratic hunt to win the White House in 2020.
The New York Democrat, a longtime advocate for women in politics and a leader in the #MeToo movement supporting survivors of sexual assault, announced her decision to run for president on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” saying she will “fight for other people’s kids as hard as I would fight for my own.”
Gillibrand is wildly anti-Trump.
