Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday.

After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.”

“Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.”

Sen. Warren was quickly criticized for her post, with numerous users pointing out how she had insinuated that Gillibrand is a “slut.”
It's not immediately clear if Liz Warren realizes she's calling Gillibrand a slut here. https://t.co/AnKzYhGsCE

Gilibrand was in bible group and called a slut by Warren today so that's a fun spectrum to be on.

That's not what slut-shaming is, c'mon.

the current shrieking phone calls between the offices of @SenGillibrand and @SenWarren would be more fun to listen to than the missing Watergate tapes

As defined by OxfordDictionaries.com, slut-shaming is, "The action or fact of stigmatizing a woman for engaging in behavior judged to be promiscuous or sexually provocative."
