An editorial Tuesday by USA Today blasted President Donald Trump for his tweet, which described Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY) as someone who “would do anything” for campaign contributions.

Trump posted the tweet Tuesday after the senator called for Trump’s resignation a day after numerous women renewed their allegations of sexual misconduct against the president.

Taking a hard line against the suggestive tweet, the USA Today editorial said, “A president who'd all but call a senator a w---- is unfit to clean toilets in Obama's presidential library or to shine George W. Bush's shoes.”

The editorial went on to state that Trump tweet implied that Gillibrand would perform sexual favors to get campaign money and through it “Trump has shown he is not fit for office.”

It continued, “Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.”

This editorial was shared on USA Today’s official Twitter page where it elicited scathing responses from numerous users.

There were also some users who tried to answer the question accompanying the USA Today tweet: "Will Trump's lows ever hit rock bottom?"

Meanwhile, the White House defended Trump.

According to a CNN report, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders addressed the tweet in a daily briefing, saying the president's comments were a reflection of an indictment of a corrupt political culture.

“This is the same sentiment the President has expressed many times before,” Sanders said.

"The system is clearly broken and it's clearly rigged for special interests. This President can't be bought and it's one of the reasons he's President today," she added.

Sanders denied the tweet was sexist, saying Trump had expressed similar sentiments about men but did not cite any examples of the same.

She added, “Only if your mind is in the gutter would you have read it that way.”

The USA Today editorial didn't buy Sander's explanation about Trump expressing similar sentiments about men and wrote, “Of course, words used about men and women are different. When candidate Trump said a journalist was bleeding from her 'wherever,' he didn't mean her nose.”

The editorial then went on to compare Trump with his predecessor Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush. It stated, “[Barack] Obama and [Geroge. W.] Bush both failed in many ways. They broke promises and told untruths, but the basic decency of each man was never in doubt.”

The editorial described Trump as “uniquely awful” and stated that his “sickening behavior” is a danger to the country’s governance which operates on “common values” and “the consent of the governed.”

The editorial stated that Trump’s tweet about Gillibrand was not a surprise when seen in terms of the number of sexual harassment and molestation allegations he was subjected to during his presidential campaign.

The editorial ended by stating, “The nation doesn’t seek nor expect perfect presidents, and some have certainly been deeply flawed. But a president who shows such disrespect for the truth, for ethics, for the basic duties of the job and for decency toward others fails at the very essence of what has always made America great.”

On the other hand, senator Gillibrand replied to Trump's tweet, saying she wouldn't be silenced and would speak about the "unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office."
