There is something to be said for the exclusionary nature of the Democratic Party, and just how polarizing it can be. For them, the entire political game is about dividing and conquering their constituents into ever smaller pieces, able to be managed while being coddled and drive to vote blue in coming elections.
Those who dare to exude the air of unity among them almost always becomes the black sheep of the party, as the left seems to want war with the right.
Tulsi Gabbard, a Democratic Congresswoman from Hawaii is no exception, now fighting off ridiculous complaints about her appearances on Fox News while herself appearing on The View.
Co-host Joy Behar said, “You’re on state TV all the time. Why do you go on the Fox channel? It’s a propaganda network — 16 times with Tucker Carlson. I never see you with Chris Wallace or that other guy. What’s his name? Bret Baier. They are middle of the road. Why do you go on with Tucker, who is a liar and a propagandist?”
Gabbard said, “You raised a second issue about why I go on Fox News. I go on Tucker Carlson, go on Bret Baier, go on Sean Hannity, go on MSNBC, go on CNN. I am here to speak to every single American in this country about the unifying leadership that I want to bring as president, not just speak to those who agree with me, but to speak to those who may disagree.”
Gabbard has recently been attacked by former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, with Clinton accusing Gabbard of being “groomed” by Russia as a spoiler for the 2020 race – a claim that the former White House occupant provided no evidence for.
