Tulsi Gabbard is trending on Twitter this morning, so you know she said something terrible.
The ex-LGBTQ-ally-turned-Fox-News-commentator tore into President Biden for his speech about voting rights given at Morehouse College, a historically African-American university, on Tuesday.
Gabbard took to Twitter to share a clip of Biden’s address where he called on everyone to “defend the right to vote, our democracy against all enemies foreign and yes, domestic” and asked, “Do you want to be the side the side of Dr. King? Or George Wallace?”

This didn’t sit well with the ex-congresswoman, who felt Biden comparing people who oppose voting rights in the year 2022 to the staunch segregationist/Jim Crow poster child crossed a line.
“Hillary’s calling tens of millions of Americans deplorables was divisive & disgusting,” Gabbard tweeted. “But Biden has gone further, calling those who disagree with his actions & policies domestic enemies, traitors, and racists. Biden promised to unite us, but he is doing all he can do divide us.”

In her last days before leaving Congress, Gabbard walked back the commitment she made to LGBTQ people during her failed 2020 presidential run by pushing one final piece of legislation that sought to strip protections from trans and gender-nonconforming students.

Since leaving Washington, D.C., she has made numerous appearances on Fox News, attacked openly gay Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot for being an “anti-white racist”, railed against nonbinary people, and inked a deal with Rumble, the conservative alternative to YouTube, to create content that
emboldens right-wing extremists inspires debate.
Here’s how people are responding to her latest tweet…
So you’re anti-voting rights?

Any one who can’t discern the extent to which voting rights have been attacked and eroded, in selectively subtle, race neutral, but tangible ways, since the 2008 cycle, simply isn’t being HONEST… your argument was used to defend literacy tests and poll taxes as well!

The last bill Tulsi Gabbard put forward in Congress was to ban trans girls from girls sports. Just like Marjorie Taylor Greene. When Tulsi was in the Hawaii state legislature she proposed anti-LGBTQ legislation that harmed LGBTQ youth.

So trump calling journalists and camera operators “enemy of the people” was a unifying exercise?

Imagine being Russia, wanting to buy a Democrat, and only being able to afford Tulsi Gabbard.

Is a bunch of money from @FoxNews really worth selling out *this* hard?

The best thing about Tulsi Gabbard running for president is it stopped her from being in congress.

It looks like Assad’s favorite ex-Congress-creature took Biden’s remarks really, really personally! She was always a Democratic concern troll and now she’s proving she was a snake in the grass to her very core. Good riddance!
Wait don’t we know for sure not that Trump supporters ARE deplorable?
Or just insurrectionists ?
The sad thing is, she was a right wing plant and was so bad at it that everyone figured her out before she could even do any damage in the election.
Exactly, the minute I heard she was now a “dem” I laughed out loud at the imbecile who thought that just by having her change her party registration was enough to fool even ONE gay guy. It may have worked on Trump’s deplorables but no f**king way would it work on a group smarter than plants
Is she that villain from Rocky & Bullwinkle?
Her behavior is somewhat schizoid in nature. I have mental illness, so I definitely don’t mean it as a dis to those of us with mental illness. She’s said some things, then it’s as if she’s living in a delusional opposite day.
They all are bat shit crazy
Yes, they seem as crazy as tjack47’s prognosis based upon his/her own mental health issues.
Cam, is this you again? Fahd is seeing Russians behind every tree. Get the net again.
We can’t defeat crazy with more crazy. Did we learn nothing from Hillary’s campaign-killing “basket of deplorables”? In politics you don’t bring people to your side with personal insults of deplorables, enemies, traitors, and racists.
Why do we se it with Gabbard; but, ignore it with Hillary? Step away from tribal nonsense to see that wrong is always wrong – regardless of tribe.
Awwww, it must be a new year if one of the right wing troll screenames is trying to defend itself by turning the accusation back on me. LOL
Sweetie, the “I know you are but what am I?” defense hasn’t worked before, and won’t now.
As always, and under every screename, your troll game is sad and weak.
She never really was an ally, as her subsequent words and actions attest. Stop referring to her that way.
The Voting Rights Act as written is in violation of the Ninth Amendment and not only gives everyone the right to vote but insures the right to vote more than once is allowed. The 2020 election was a farce. Unsecured ballot boxes on street corners, mass mailings of Mail in Ballots that were not requested, I received one for my deceased lover who passed away twenty years ago. This was not the exception but the norm. And then those dropped off ballots and Mail in B allots I’m many states faced the problem of being unable to verify all the signatures. The Democrats created a new twist to Chicagos Mayor Daly’s campaigns where the cities deceased were able to cast their ballots from their final resting place.
Balderdash, all of what you wrote. Pure balderdash flying in the face of reality. Try again!
Typical right wing troll with pure BS.
THIS is what happens when two tribes compete to see who is craziest… Republicans will always win that contest. Almost as crazy as the far-right Wall Street Journal promoting Hillary knowing that she would lose to an STD.
By the way, she did lose to a STD, the one that she CHOSE to “elevate” and run against.
Before repeating the worst candidate pairing ever, Ever, EVER, can we explain to Hillary and the establishment Democratic tribe that the President is chosen by the Electoral Commission – not the popular vote (which it should be).
Seventh grade social studies should not be above the educational level of presidential candidates.
IF the right to vote is so protected little mikey why the FU*K are so many republican states limiting voting? you freaking trolls come here thinking we are as stupid as Trump followers but we are not. Your comments has so many errors in it to be pathetically ignorant
LOL!!! Not only does the right wing troll try to lie under a new screename, but then it brings in one of it’s other names to try to defend the lie THREE TIMES!
Sweetie, if you’re trying to hide your new names, you’re doing a sh*t job of it. LOL
She is/was a Russian plant and a dangerous and divisive force. Now I suppose she’s an abandoned agent or whatever. Treating her as an influencer is a disservice to decent people. Neither the deplorables nor the Russians want her either, in case she hasn’t noticed. Bye, Tulsi!
Conspiracy nuts are the problem. Stop contributing.
No, anti-American Russia supporters are the problem.
that hag was never an ally. EVER.
Why would anyone not want everyone who is eligible to vote to actually vote? That is a fair election for everyone to vote.
I would say, “at least she’s pretty,” but in her case, she’s not even that any more. Ugly is what ugly does.
I’ve always found her to be a completely untrustworthy, unqualified person, and never felt she belonged onstage with her fellow candidates for the presidency. Biden was 100% correct in his commentary the other day; the Rs are trying desperately to keep nonwhite, nonmale, nonChristian and nonstraight people from ever voting. Apparently Biden is “tearing the country apart” while what the traitorous Rs are doing is a kumbaya hootenany. She’s a repulsive creature who should never be given media coverage; she was alway a right-wing plant.
I wish Tulsi would just shut and go away. I’ve been saying for years that she is wolf in sheep’s clothing. It cracks me up that there are or were people out there claiming she’s a progressive. And others claim that she’s no longer the vile homophobe she used to be, she’s an ally. What a joke. To me it was more than obvious that her sudden support of the LGBTQ community was all an act done after she switched from the GQP because she knew her homophobic hate mongering wasn’t going to get her far in the Democratic Party. You can tell when someone is being sincere vs. someone who is just telling what they think you want to hear. She was a rightwing infiltrator, that’s all. Now she’s nothing and let’s hope she’ll stay that way.
