What did Tulsi Gabbard do to get Hilary Clinton’s hate, I mean *cough cough Russian spy allegation*? At this point, Hillary Clinton accusing someone of being a Russian asset is almost a compliment. It means she feels threatened enough to smear you.
Hillary Clinton on Tulsi Gabbard:
“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary, and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she’s also a Russian asset.”
As I don’t believe anyone deserves to be smeared, I appreciate the way Andrew Yang and Beto O’Rourke stuck up for Tulsi.
Tulsi Gabbard deserves much more respect and thanks than this. She literally just got back from serving our country abroad.

Beto O'Rourke on Tulsi Gabbard: "Tulsi is not being groomed by anyone. She is her own person. Obviously has served this country, continues to serve this country in uniform, in Congress, as a candidate for presidency so I think those facts speak for themselves." pic.twitter.com/JDk9we1rzp

O’Rourke doesn’t see evidence of Russian collusion with Tulsi and doesn’t believe she is in cahoots with the Russians, but obviously Trump is guilty of being a Russian asset. Because there is so much evidence of that.
Yesterday, Beto told the media:
“Again, I think I could play into this false media narrative that seeks to pit Democrats against one another over a spurious allegation, or we can focus on the fact that there is a Russian asset in the White House right now doing the bidding of a foreign power against the interests of America.”
First off Beto, it’s not a false media narrative. It’s your fearless leader’s Russian smear campaign.
Secondly, I think it’s been pretty well established that regardless of Trump’s faults, he is no Russian asset. How can you take a Clinton screw-up and redirect it at Trump? Welcome to partisan politics.
