Failing presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand is facing new criticism from an unlikely source this week: Her own campaign staffers, with insiders saying it’s time for the New York Senator to quit her run for the White House.

“It’s time for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s sputtering presidential campaign to call it quits, a friend of hers and two former aides told The [New York] Post,” writes the report.

“It would be best if she decided that this was not her time,” said one longtime supporter.

Senator Gillibrand has struggled to gain any traction on the national stage, with many in the news media announcing her candidacy dead on arrival. She likely won’t make it to the third debate, as she’s failed to secure 130,000 individual donors.

As a last ditch effort, Gillibrand and her team are selling shirts for $1 a piece in hopes that she will cross the unique donor threshold. She’s currently lagging behind lower-tier candidates Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and Marianne Williamson, both of whom have secured the minimum requirement.

“Most people that I talk to are very happy with her as their senator and don’t want her to give up her Senate seat and don’t see any realistic traction for her,” said another insider.

Gillibrand has until August 28th to gather the support.

Failing Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand unveiled her own version of the ‘Green New Deal’ Thursday; pledging $10 trillion to fight climate change over the next ten years if elected in 2020.

“Polar ice and glaciers are melting at a rapid pace. Heavy rains are causing catastrophic flooding in the Midwest, leaving farms submerged and homes and businesses destroyed. Changes in our oceans are disrupting fisheries and killing coral reefs. Droughts and wildfires are threatening communities across the West, and extreme weather is leaving millions of people without homes and causing billions of dollars in damage every year,” writes Gillibrand.

“The scientific community is telling us that we only have a short amount of time to act if we’re going to prevent the most catastrophic and irreversible damage in the future. But President Trump refuses to even acknowledge that human-caused climate change is happening,” she adds.

“Climate action should be this generation’s moonshot. To save our planet, the energy, talents, and commitment of every American will be required, from our farmers and workers to our scientists and entrepreneurs. The next president has to be willing to take bold leaps to lead this effort and stand up to the climate change deniers, polluters, and oil and gas special interests. I will, because we can’t afford not to,” concludes Gillibrand.

The man plan “mobilize” $10 trillion in funds to achieve “net-zero” carbon emissions; forcing climate “polluters” to pay stiff fines and penalties.
