WATCH: Tulsi Gabbard Responds to Hillary Clinton on Tucker Carlson: ‘I Stand Against Everything That She Represents’

Tulsi Clinton

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is not backing down after being smeared as a “Russian asset” by twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Friday.

After trending at the top of Twitter all afternoon for calling Clinton the “Queen of the Warmongers” and “embodiment of corruption,” and gaining over 40,000 new followers on the platform, Rep. Gabbard went on Tucker Carlson Tonight and continued the beatdown of the former First Lady.

Speaking to Carlson, Rep. Gabbard asserted that Clinton has a problem with her because she stands against “everything that she represents.”

Rep. Gabbard explained that she believes Clinton is attacking her “because I am and have long been calling for an end to our country’s foreign policy of waging one regime change war after the next… and because I’m calling for an end to this new Cold War and nuclear arms race.”

 

The Hawaiian congresswoman, a veteran who left the campaign trail to serve overseas, continued on to say that Clinton’s smears are smears on everyone who wants to see peace.

“Ultimately she knows she can’t control me,” Gabbard said. “I stand against everything that she represents and if I’m elected president, if I’m the Democratic nominee and elected president she will not be able to control me. She won’t be able to manipulate me. She won’t be able to continue to work from behind the curtains, to continue these regime change wars that have been so costly.”

Gabbard added that the blood of her “brothers and sisters in uniform” killed in Iraq, a “war she championed,” is on Clinton’s hands.

On Friday afternoon, Rep. Gabbard went viral when she responded to slander from Clinton, referring to the former First Lady as “Queen of the Warmongers” and “embodiment of corruption.” She also challenged Clinton to join the race.

“Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton . You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose. It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.”

Clinton went after Gabbard while appearing on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by Barack Obama’s former campaign manager David Plouffe.

“They are also going to do third party again,” Clinton said. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third party candidate,” Clinton said, referring to Gabbard.

“She is a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and ways of supporting her so far. That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset.

Clinton then claimed that even if it isn’t Gabbard, there will be a third-party candidate who she believes will take votes away from the Democrat Party.

“They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate, and so I do not know who it is going to be but I can guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most need it.”

Gabbard blasted the media during the debate earlier this week for smearing her by claiming she is a Russian asset. She also took a minor shot at Clinton by saying that “when I look out at our country, I don’t see deplorables, I see fellow Americans.”
