InformationLiberationCNN’s Bakari Sellers said Tuesday that “there is no question” that Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is “a puppet for the Russian government” and anyone who disagrees with him is probably a Russian “bot.”
SELLERS: There is a slightly — there is a chance that Tulsi [Gabbard] is not just working for the United States of America, but I digress.
RYAN: Wait a minute, what?
SELLERS: No, I firmly —
RYE: That’s a hell of an allegation.
SELLERS: That’s not just an allegations. I firmly believe that —
RYAN: Uh oh, messages is coming now!
SELLERS: No, yeah, watch the bots come on Twitter now! I firmly believe that Tulsi Gabbard stands on that stage and is the antithesis to what the other 11 individuals stand for, especially when it comes to issues such as foreign policy. There is no question, there is no question that Tulsi Gabbard, of all the 12, is a puppet for the Russian government.
RYAN: Whoa, whoa, that was strong.
CAMEROTA: How is there no question?
SELLERS: I think that you look at her relationship doing the bidding, her relationships and affection for people like Bashar al Assad, her admiring somebody we know to be a war criminal, propping them up. I think that those are questions that are going to have to be answered.
Those are the only questions the media ever ask her about!
She’s answered those questions a million damn times!
While Elizabeth Warren has her own undisclosed donors pitching her seemingly fully-scripted questions so she can respond with scripted zingers, Gabbard is always constantly asked why she loves Bashar al-Assad and opposed the homosexual agenda when she was a teenager.
Unfortunately, Gabbard seems to think it’s a good strategy to give in to the media’s bullying and has been flip-flopping all over the place to try and somehow stay in their good graces.
Most recently, she backed Nancy Pelosi’s Trump impeachment inquiry after first opposing it and now she’s been attacking Trump for “abandoning muh Kurds” (my words, not hers) and not pulling out of Syria in just the way she would like.
She could have had a serious impact on this race had she just stuck to her guns and went hard against the establishment (as Trump did during his presidential campaign) but she botched it with her endless flip-flopping and equivocating.
Her only chance at this point is to go nuclear during the upcoming Dem debate.
