Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) severely dinged President Donald Trump to kick off night two of the second Democratic debate on Wednesday, and the Internet loves her for it.
When asked about the first thing she would do as president, Gillibrand delivered a one-liner to express how disgusting Trump is.
“So the first thing that I’m going to do when I’m president — is I’m going to Clorox the Oval Office,” she said to audience applause before going on to make climate change her next priority. “The second thing I’m going to do, is I will re-engage on global climate change. And I will not only sign the Paris global climate accords, but I will lead a worldwide conversation about the urgency of this crisis. The greatest threat to humanity is global climate change.”

She’s probably right that the White House could use a good wipe-down with bleach after Trump leaves office. After all, he’s a nasty man who hurls racism and sexism every chance he gets and he’s friends with several pedophiles, including Jeffrey Epstein. Trump has also been accused of rape.
Gillibrand not only received cheers from the audience, people cheered her on via social media as well, and even had some things to add.

A couple of dozen RAID bug bombs and some D-Con rat traps would probably help too.

While Gillibrand did deliver a great line, it’s probably not enough to save her abysmal poll numbers. Right now, former Vice-President Joe Biden leads the pack while Senators Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) are not too far behind.
The line, however, did do one thing. It united Democrats in agreement that Trump is disgusting.
