Senator curses in speech to show frustration with Washington

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, on whether Trump has kept his promises: 'No. F--- no.' Gillibrand to Democrats: 'If We Aren't Helping People, We Should Go the Fuck Home'
Lamar Ellis | 10 June, 2017, 05:44

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand let it all hang out by spicing her Personal Democracy Forum presentation at New York University Friday with a few F-bombs.

"Has he kept any of his promises?" she asked.

Gillibrand and other Democrats have used profanity while referencing Trump's presidency in recent months, as Politico noted in April. "No. F**k, no", Gillibrand said, AP's Steven Peoples reports.

However, she didn't just lay into Trump, but also critiqued the Democratic Party for their failure to reach a large swath of working-class Americans.

"If we are not helping people, we should go the f**k home", Sen.

Gillibrand was one of a number of prominent political figures addressing the Popular Democracy Forum at New York University, a gathering meant to discuss how technology has shaped the modern political sphere.

"Sorry", she said after the audience laughed and cheered on the expletive. Gillibrand's fucking fantastic speech (below)! I'm bad! I didn't respond properly!' Gillibrand told the magazine she remembered thinking.

A spokesman for the senator tells us, quote, "She's entirely comfortable being who she is". "No. Fuck no", she said. Kirsten Gillibrand used salty language Friday to express her frustration with Washington politics.
