Smears keep coming at the Democrats’ anti-war candidate, Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who ripped into the corporate hosts of last Tuesday’s fourth presidential debate, the New York Times and CNN, from the stage.
Then, on Friday, Hillary Clinton herself kept the smear campaign going, saying in a podcast hosted by Barack Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe that Russia is grooming Gabbard to be a third party candidate.
Gabbard lashed back at the Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nominee, tweeting in response, “Thank you @HillaryClinton.
Days before Gabbard appeared on the debate stage in Ohio, she had threatened to boycott the event, because she believes the DNC is rigged against outsider candidates such as herself.
The Times called Gabbard’s supporters “unusual Americans”; that has now become a rallying cry.
