I put this in the tulsi thread, but got to thinking, this is pretty disturbing on a couple of levels, and needs its own thread

she's not only a Russian asset, but apparently a trump asset as well? (which I guess is kind of the same thing)

this is trump's official campaign twitter account, ran by Brad Parscale

this is a pretty good piece explaining why she's getting so much support from trumpian Repubs (and any attention in general)


Between the lines: Her attacks on Democrats and the party have made her a favorite for right-wing media publications, many of which have supercharged social media audiences.
  • Of the 15 biggest stories about Gabbard over the last three months, 12 have come from right-leaning publishers.
The top five stories:
  1. Tulsi Gabbard calls Hillary Clinton the ‘embodiment of corruption’ — New York Post (291k interactions)
  2. Gabbard dares Clinton to run for president in 2020, fights back against assertions that she is a Russian asset — Fox News (109k)
  3. Gabbard to Clinton: You are 'queen of warmongers ... personification of the rot that has sickened' Democrats — CNS News (103k)
  4. Hillary Clinton suggests Russians are 'grooming' Tulsi Gabbard for third-party run — CNN (90k)
  5. Gabbard threatens to boycott Ohio debate, claims DNC is 'rigging' primaries — Fox News (85k)

I do agree with her here though


the comments section is weird though, apparently trumpian repubs are cool with SA (much like trump is), therefore she's not winning them over with this.

the trumpian repubs I know still call her a "socialist" so I'm not sure whatever her strategy is with trying to gain winger support is working

is this real or what?

i keep forgetting she is one of the dozens lingering around the stage...
the tweet in the OP from trump's official campaign twitter page is real

she's extremely underwhelming as a candidate, and I think her goal right now is division.

I'm assuming the trump campaign likes her because she is trying to hurt the other dem candidates, one of whom will be running against him in the general

the only thing i knew about her when she joined was that she was already issuing apologies to the LGBTQ+ community for some comments or whatever in her time in office. i was like, dude, you already dont understand...

i think Sabcat liked her early on and that also sent up like a million red flags :cool:

She would hurt Trump, if anybody.
