During his Tuesday morning rant on Twitter, Donald Trump posted a sexually suggestive message about Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Following the expected backlash, the president came under fire [VIDEO] from the media, with one of his most outspoken critics not holding back.

Ever since the New York Times broke their bombshell story [VIDEO]about Harvey Weinsteins' history of sexual misconduct, women have been coming forward to accuse various high-profiled men in power of similar acts. With film producers, actors, athletes, and politicians all feeling the wrath, Donald Trump is now once again dealing with his own history of allegations against him.

In the weeks leading up to Election Day last year, a dozen women went public to accuse Trump of sexual assault and harassment, which followed the release of the now infamous "Access Hollywood" tape. Trump denied the claims, which were quickly drowned out after the former host of "The Apprentice" pulled off the upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton under the cloud of controversy and alleged Russian interference. On Monday, several of Trump's accusers held a press conference and asked congress to investigate the allegations, which prompted Sen. Kirtsen Gillibrand to call on the president to resign. In response, Trump lashed out on Twitter by suggesting that Gillibrand would "do another" for campaign donations. As seen on the December 12 edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, the tweet didn't go over well.

On the Tuesday edition of "Morning Joe," co-host Mika Brzezinski ripped into Donald Trump for his sexist tweet against Kirsten Gillibrand. "You treat women terribly, and you treat the women around you even worse. You treat women like punching bags because it’s fun for you because you are intimidated by women," Brzezinski said, who described Trump's tweet as "reprehensible" and "so derogatory and disgusting."

Panel guest and network contributor Elise Jordan also chimed in, saying Donald Trump's tweet "made my blood boil," describing his suggestive message as "gross and beneath the office." Later on in the segment, Mika Brzezinski doubled down, and called out the president for "suggesting that Kirsten Gillibrand would have sex with him in order to get campaign contributions." The panel summed up their consensus by saying it was "one of the worst things" Trump has done since being elected president.

Gillibrand fires back

In response to Donald Trump's tweet, Sen. decided to give her own thoughts on the matter. "It was a sexist smear attempting to silence my voice, and I will not be silenced on this issue," she said, before adding, "Neither will the women who stood up to the president yesterday."

Moving forward

As Donald Trump continues to create a constant stream of controversy, his popularity with the American people is dropping even lower. Despite the president recently posting one poll that shows him with a 45 percent approval, other surveys haven't been so kind, with the latest Pew Research Poll showing Trump with just a 32 percent favorability rating.
