Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (R-HI), who has challenged the xenophobic, pro-war consensus of her party as a Democratic presidential contender for 2020, of being a possible Russian asset earlier today.
She made the baseless assertion on Friday that Gabbard is planning to run a third-party campaign to sabotage the Democrats on behalf of the evil Rooskies.
“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 during an appearance on former Obama adviser David Plouffe’s podcast, obviously referring 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,” Clinton added. She also compared Gabbard to Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate in 2016 who Democrats often claim is affiliated with the Russians.
Gabbard immediately struck back against Clinton, calling her the “queen of warmongers” in a blistering post released on various social media platforms.
“Great! Thank you, Hillary Clinton. 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,” Gabbard wrote.
“From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose,” she added.
To conclude her take-down of Crooked Hillary, Gabbard told Clinton to actually join the presidential race if she had the guts to take her on directly rather than having cronies and sycophants do her dirty work.
“It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly,” Gabbard concluded.
It has become a popular talking point of the Democratic Party establishment to accuse Gabbard of being a Russian asset due to her principled, anti-war views. It is one of the many conspiracy theories they have concocted regarding Russia following the election of President Trump.
Tulsi Gabbard is using Russian talking points to describe the Syrian Civil War instead as a "regime change war."
That is a terrible lie.
It absolves Assad the Butcher for the mass murder of his own citizens with Putin's help.#DemDebate

Today, I tweeted snark when @TulsiGabbard whined "election rigged, corporate media" stuff. I got hit with familiar attacks. I checked & they used almost same language as '16 tweets since confirmed to be Russian actors.
Is Tulsi set to be next Stein spoiler, promoted by Russia?

The reason it took Tulsi Gabbard so long to respond is that she had to run it by Putin first.
Honestly, it probably sounded better in the original Russian.

straight up spewing conspiracies that @TulsiGabbard is a RUSSIAN PLANT on daytime television like it’s no big deal

The Russophobic nature of the radicalized Democrats in the age of Trump is outpacing McCarthyism in terms of sheer hysteria. Gabbard’s unwillingness to back down will only trigger them further as she continues to gain headlines for her iconoclastic views in an otherwise uniform field of presidential contenders.

Wisconsin Polling Shows President Trump ROUNDLY Defeating Entire Democratic Field
Democratic prospects in the Midwest are looking tough.
New polling from Quinnipiac released Thursday shows President Donald Trump handily defeating every major Democratic presidential candidate in hypothetical general election matchups.

Well-known Democrats Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are the most competitive candidates against Trump in the Wisconsin general election, and even they lose by a considerable seven points to the incumbent Republican president.
Even Pete Buttigieg, an Indiana mayor who claims to have a credible path to victory in midwestern states the President grabbed from the Democratic Party in 2016, appears nowhere near seriously competing in the state.
The polling suggests Democrats will have a serious uphill battle in order to contend for the electoral votes of midwestern states such as Wisconsin, in 2020 or other future Presidential elections.
President Trump’s polling in statewide and national surveys has consistently improved as the Democratic Primary erupts in contention, suggesting that the divisions within the Democratic Party may bode well for his re-election.
The state was formerly assumed to be a safe blue state, before Trump won its electoral votes in a shocking upset in 2016. Pennsylvania and Michigan also went Republican for the first time in decades in Trump’s victory, and will prove essential to the election in 2020. Polling of the latter two states shows closer general election contests than in Wisconsin.
If Democrats are resigned to defeat in Midwestern states such as Wisconsin, they may choose to redouble their efforts in southwestern states such as Arizona or Texas.
