She raised the issue during a speech at the Personal Democracy Forum at New York University on Friday. As seen in the video below, uploaded to YouTube by Need To Know (NTK) Network, Gillibrand says, “Has he kept any of these promises? No. F**k no.”
Gillibrand quickly apologized, saying, “Sorry. I understand this is a younger audience, it’s OK.”
“Even though we as Democrats are on the right side of almost all issues, many hardworking families haven’t felt that we’ve been fighting for them,” she said. “Fundamentally, if we are not helping people, we should go the fuck home.”
“I think it was ‘coverage,’ and he just mistyped it,” Gillibrand answered. “And he was bitching about the media and he just forgot to finish.”
The New York senator had been considered a potential 2020 presidential candidate. However, she announced in May that she’s ruled out a run, saying she is “dedicated to serving our state as our senator, and I’m running for reelection so I can continue to be their senator.”
