UPDATE: It is payback for crossing Hillary.
.@TulsiGabbard says despite not being specifically named as the 2020 Democrat being “groomed” by Russians, to “look at every single headline” about Clinton’s comments: “Let’s not mess around here and pretend that it wasn’t something that it was.” https://t.co/aYIcGo5zvO pic.twitter.com/yr80fdwuZo— CBS News (@CBSNews) October 19, 2019

UPDATE: Tulsi Gabbard was on Tucker Carlson Tonight where she responded to Hillary.
Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a …— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) October 18, 2019

It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.
The Democratic Party has brought in neocon refugees like Max Boot from the GOP and merged them with conspiracy obsessed cat ladies who are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome because they have watched too much CNN and Rachel Maddow.
“Hillary Clinton in a new interview appeared to float a conspiracy theory that the Russians are “grooming” Hawaii congresswoman and Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard to be a third-party candidate in 2020, while claiming 2016 Green Party nominee Jill Stein is “also” a Russian asset.
Appearing on former President Obama aide David Plouffe’s “Campaign HQ” podcast, Clinton did not mention Gabbard specifically by name, though Plouffe ended the podcast by noting Clinton’s “belief that Tulsi Gabbard is going to be a third-party candidate propped up by Trump and the Russians.”
“I’m not making any predictions but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, in apparent reference to Gabbard. “She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.” …”
Do you remember when the Democratic Party in the George W. Bush era used to pretend to be opposed to endless wars and free trade?
Rachel Maddow wrote a New York Times bestseller book about “America’s dangerous drift into a state of perpetual war.” It was published in 2013 when Barack Obama was president who was elected primarily because of the unpopularity of the Iraq War.
My position on this issue which was absorbed from Pat Buchanan in the early 2000s hasn’t changed in over 15 years. Whether George W. Bush, Barack Obama or Donald Trump was president, I have never supported the American Empire and have always wanted to stay out of these conflicts. I have criticized Blompf for his betrayals as fiercely as W. or Obama.
In the last Democratic Debate, Tulsi was the only candidate who didn’t want to stay in the Middle East forever and who pointed out we had no business being in Syria in the first place. The fact that Hillary Clinton pushed for regime change wars in Libya and Syria when she was Secretary of State cost her more votes in the Upper Midwest than Russian bots.
