Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Tulsi Unloads on Hillary. Have Popcorn?

 

This explosion occurred when the forlorn and pathetic Hillary Clinton called candidate Tulsi Gabbard a Russian asset. A Uranium-rich remark. Now, there’s a lot to like about Tulsi Gabbard, even though I think she’s wrong about a number of social policy issues and if she had a different educational path might have come out more on the conservative end of the spectrum … but damn! She certainly has Hillary Clinton pegged. We’ll see if this boosts her standing in the Democrat field even as some diehard Hillary fans are affronted by the broadside. Who cares about Biden, Warren, or Bernie. This is where all the action is.

    I don’t like Hillary but I honestly never thought she was nuts. But now it looks like she really has gone around the bend. This is delusional.

    If anything reaches the “actual malice” threshold for a defamation claim by someone who is a public figure, I’d think this statement would be it.

    Which tweet? Hillary’s or Tulsi’s? Tulsi’s is hyperbolic. Hillary’s, it could be claimed, is a defamatory assertion that Gabbard is working for the Russian government, which Clinton must prove.

    Where do I contribute to the fund for Tulsi’s defamation suit against Hillary?

    Tulsi could give Trump a run for his money. I prefer Trump’s policies, but would really rather listen to and look at Tulsi. I think most Americans would rather look at and listen to Tulsi than Trump.

    I would rather have a root canal than listen to Warren, Biden, Castro, Sanders, Beato, etc. Yang would be tolerable.

    So the harshest political tweet of the day was not written by Trump??

     I feel a little disoriented.

    Thanks for clarifying, David. If you were referring to Tulsi’s, she could offer truth as a defense.

    I will agree that I prefer to look at Tulsi. I cannot stand to listen to her. I actually find her more grating and annoying than most of the others. She is easy on the eyes, as my father-in-law used to say.

    In the old days she would have challenged Hillary to a duel.

    Somebody needs to tell Tulsi that her problem isn’t just with Hillary. It is with everybody else in her party who thinks she’s not woke enough. That would be … everybody else in her party.

    Yes and no. The whole Russia asset thing is coming directly from the Hillary camp, and the media suppression and the DNC debate manipulations come from Hillary allies too. Ordinary Democrats are told what to think by their media mesmerizers.

    Tulsi is showing some guts. She is a fighter. That should be good to move her up a few points in the polls. Nobody else in the DNC has shown themselves to be capable of throwing a verbal punch. Warren had a to have a planted question in a town hall to execute a snarky statement–so lame. Liz knows that voters want a fighter so badly that she is willing to fake it.

    Americans love a good underdog story – scrappy outsider closes the distance during the last lap of the race and defeats the conceited opponent, and the guy that was cheating, and the other guy that said hurtful things…good real person wins and the selfish, venal, and cruel are put in their places. 

    Reminds me of Trump’s win to a degree. 

    Maybe the Dems want to do a remake.

    This is nuts. These charges of being “unAmerican” are flying from all sides to all sides. Putin wanted Americans to war with each other. Both Democrats and Republicans are handing him his dreams on a silver platter.

    I always thought McMuffin was a fool, but this makes me wonder if he is the political answer to Andy Kaufman, i.e., someone whose idea of humor is just so off-the-wall that most of us don’t get it.
