After sitting at the bottom of the pack and struggling to poll above 1 percent, Kirsten Gillibrand is throwing in the towel.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand(D-NY), or Hillary Jr. as she is dubbed in the ClashDaily office, may have been the worst candidate to run to become the Democratic nominee, including Hillary Clinton herself.
Gillibrand has the likability of a sea slug, which seems to be confirmed in several new polls where she was steadily polling at 0 percent.
No matter how much she pandered, it always fell flat.
During Pride, she served drinks at a gay bar.

Gillibrand lectured someone asking her a question about so-called “white privilege.”
Today in Youngstown, OH, a woman asked: "This is an area that, across all demographics, has been depressed because of the loss of industry and the opioid crisis. What do you have to say to people in this area about so-called white privilege?"

Gee, why was she polling at 0 percent?
But her ill-fated run has come screeching to a halt. She made the announcement on Wednesday afternoon via a video posted to Twitter.
From Gillibrand’s video:
Today, I am ending my campaign for president. I am so proud of this team and all we’ve accomplished. But I think it’s important to know how you can best serve. To our supporters: Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Now, let’s go beat Donald Trump and win back the Senate.
I wanted you to hear it from me first, that after more than eight incredible months, I’m ending my presidential campaign. I know this isn’t the result we wanted. We wanted to win this race. But it’s important to know when it’s not your time, and to know how to best serve your community and country. I believe I can best serve by helping to unite us to beat Donald Trump in 2020.

President Trump, who hasn’t shied away from weighing in on the slate of candidates that are running for the opportunity to be defeated by him in 2020, tweeted his thoughts on the development.
A sad day for the Democrats, Kirsten Gillibrand has dropped out of the Presidential Primary. I’m glad they never found out that she was the one I was really afraid of!

If the left had a sense of humor, they might actually laugh at that. But they just don’t get the President’s humor. In the words of a wise man, “Sad!”
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
