Democrat Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard went on the attack against her own party for their hate of Trump supporters and news personalities who disagree with them.
Rep. Gabbard was speaking to Podcast host Joe Rogan when she turned her ire against the Democrats.
“It’s one thing to say you’re gonna go on Fox News and tussle with Sean Hannity about things you disagree on, but what they see as more dangerous is finding areas where you actually do agree,” Gabbard told Rogan. “I have a platform to be able to speak to millions of people across the country about the kind of leadership I bring in the area of foreign policy. What I would do here in this country, what I would do there in that country if I were president today. And I have the opportunity to deliver that message directly to people’s living rooms or offices or wherever they are.”
However, the Congresswoman was far from done. Gabbard hit out at the Democrats for treating people like garbage and referring to Trump supporters as Deplorables, a term coined by Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“This is why, I’ll go on Fox News, MSNBC, CNN and I’m delivering the exact same message to people and we’re building and growing support in people who watch those three different channels,” Gabbard said. “You’re never going to be able to have a dialogue … win support from people who you treat like garbage, who you disrespect, who you call names, who you call deplorables. But how do you expect to lead as the president of every single American in this country when you’ve thrown half of them away?”
This is not the first time that CongresswomanTulsi Gabbard has targeted her own Democrat party for their treatment of Conservatives. She has fought often with the likes of Hillary Clinton, who suggested Gabbard is a Russian plant, as well as fellow Democrat candidates including Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris.
Rep. Gabbard is far from the top of the polls currently, but made the decision not to run for her Hawaii congress seat in 2020 to focus her time on the Presidential primaries. She tends to outperform other candidates on internet searches following Democrat Debates.
