Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) recently became one of the first 2020 Democratic hopefuls to be struck down in Hillary’s line of attack. But make no mistake, if any woman out there is prepared to stand up to Hillary Clinton, it’s looking like Tulsi Gabbard is best suited for the job. This “catfight” may or may not help Gabbard win the Democrat primary, but she’s going for it and not standing down.
Last month, Clinton accused Gabbard of being a Russian Asset. Seriously, is it me, or is the Russian narrative that Clinton continues to push becoming a mental disorder where she now sees Russian Bots running around in her head all day long? Seriously, now everyone, even a fellow Democrat who disagrees with the Clinton establishment on any issue, is not “racist” or “misogynistic” or “a white nationalist” but a Russian asset.
Impressively, Gabbard is not letting it go, she’s standing up to the fight, and her lawyers are now accusing Clinton of defamation and demanding verbal retraction.
When Hillary Clinton went after Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) accusing her of being a “Russian asset” last month, here’s what Van Jones had to say about it:
Jones blasted Hillary, saying that she is playing a dangerous game and he’s right. This time, Hilda picked a fight with another woman who is refusing to let it go.
Tulsi Gabbard really doesn’t want folks to forget Hillary Clinton’s comments. The Gabbard campaign is demanding Clinton hold a press conference where to “verbally retract” her comments. pic.twitter.com/nxAQHxjCTM

“Your statement is defamatory, and we demand that you retract it immediately,” Gabbard’s lawyer wrote in a letter.
“It appears you may now be claiming that this statement is about Republicans (not Russians) grooming Gabbard,” Gabbard’s lawyer wrote. “But this makes no sense in light of what you actually said. After you made the statement linking Congresswoman Gabbard to the Russians, you (through your spokesman) doubled down on it with the Russian nesting dolls remark.”
“In light, we demand that you immediately hold a press conference to verbally retract — in full — your comments,” Gabbard’s lawyers wrote demanding Hillary post their prepared retraction to her Twitter account and distribute it to media outlets such as CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, etc.
The bottom line is that Clinton made baseless attacks on Gabbard, and the establishment media, in particular, The View, doubled down in support of Clinton. But Joy Behar learned the lesson that Gabbard won’t take it, and if you’re a person who chooses to make baseless attacks on her, she’ll call you out, directly to your face. Tulsi is fearless, watch her call out the ladies on The View as Behar continued to defend Clinton. Jump to 1:05 of this video to watch Gabbard set the record straight.
Lawsuits can be very effective, and this should be fun to watch. Will Gabbard be the first woman to get Hillary to apologize? After all, it’s Veteran’s Day; it would seem appropriate for Hillary to apologize and to thank Tulsi for her service. A simple public apology would save Hillary a few legal fees; will she apologize for smearing Tulsi, or will she respond with “At this point, what difference does it make!!??”
