SELLOUT: Tulsi Gabbard Ends Presidential Campaign, Endorses Joe Biden
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), the quixotic presidential contender who made bringing the troops home from the Middle East the core issue of her campaign, has thrown in the towel and surrendered to the Democrat Party establishment.
Gabbard announced on Thursday that she is suspending her presidential campaign and throwing her support behind former Vice President Joe Biden, a career politician who has supported the Iraq War, mass incarceration, the Patriot Act, and other anti-progressive policies.
“I know Vice President Biden and his wife and am grateful to have called his son Beau, who also served in the National Guard, a friend. Although I may not agree with the vice president on every issue, I know that he has a good heart and is motivated by his love for our country and the American people,” Gabbard wrote in an email to her campaigners.
“I’m confident that he will lead our country guided by the spirit of aloha — respect and compassion — and thus help heal the divisiveness that has been tearing our country apart,” she added. “Today, I’m suspending my presidential campaign, and offering my full support to Vice President Joe Biden in his quest to bring our country together.”
Gabbard, who endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for president in 2016, had previously earned respect from voters throughout the political spectrum for her willingness to buck the political establishment.
Big League Politics has reported on Gabbard’s efforts to sue Hillary Clinton for defamation over her implication that Gabbard was a tool of the evil Russians:
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who is running for the Democrat nomination for President, has filed a lawsuit against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after she alluded to Gabbard as a “Russian asset” in a podcast interview last year.
“Clinton falsely stated that Tulsi—an Army National Guard officer and United States Congresswoman who has spent her entire adult life serving this country—is a ‘Russian asset.’ Clinton’s false assertions were made in a deliberate attempt to derail Tulsi’s presidential campaign,” the complaint reads.
Clinton never mentioned Gabbard by name during her appearance on the Campaign HQ podcast, but it was not difficult to discern who the failed 2016 presidential candidate was referring to with her remarks.
“She’s a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset,” Clinton said on the podcast.
Gabbard has destroyed all of her credibility and sold her soul to the political establishment with her endorsement of Biden.
