(Newser) – Wow, tell us how you really feel USA Today. The newspaper absolutely unloaded on President Trump in an editorial Wednesday that is drawing attention for its scathing language. For instance: "A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush." As that line suggests, the editorial goes after Trump for his Tuesday tweet saying that Gillibrand "would do anything" for campaign contributions. But it goes far beyond that. Details and reaction:

  • Other lines: By "clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office," reads the editorial, headlined, "Will Trump's lows ever hit rock bottom?" At another point, it complains that "Trump’s utter lack of morality, ethics and simple humanity has been underscored during his 11 months in office," before ticking off examples.
  • And another: Trump is "uniquely awful. His sickening behavior is corrosive to the enterprise of a shared governance based on common values and the consent of the governed."
