‘I served in the war she championed!’: Tulsi & The View’s Behar face off in tense exchange over Clinton & ‘Russian asset’ smears

Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard faced off in a fiery exchange with The View’s Joy Behar after taking issue with being branded a “useful idiot” by the co-host on a previous episode of the show.

A clearly fed up Gabbard confronted the hosts who have previously maligned her as a Russian asset and "Assad apologist" over her views on the war in Syria. The anti-Gabbard media hysteria was kicked up a notch after failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also suggested she was being groomed by Moscow to run as a third party disrupter candidate.




"Some of you have accused me of being a traitor to my country, a Russian asset, a Trojan horse or a useful idiot, I think was the term that you used," she said, directing her words at Behar.

In an attempt to backtrack ever so slightly, Behar said that she hadn't meant to imply that Gabbard was a witting asset of Russia and might be an "unwitting" asset instead. “Not that that means you're stupid, but people can be used," Behar suggested.

“That exactly what that means though,” Gabbard shot back, saying it was offensive to suggest she was an unwitting asset of another country.

“If you are saying it's not deliberately, then you are implying that I am too stupid and too naive and lack the intelligence to know what I am doing. And that is extremely offensive to me and to every woman of color,” the Hawaii congresswoman said.

Things continued to heat up as Behar brought up the fact that Gabbard branded Clinton “queen of warmongers” and the “personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party” in a tweet.

3. You and 1.7% of Dems

She's just another gun-grabbing identity politics commie who wants to destroy the economy.

And she's got Syria on the brain. Look at the issues on her webpage. One of her "major" issues in chemical attacks in Syria. That's just weird.

4. And you think I disagree with her. Could almost be my sister except for the guns.

I'll trust our courts and Constitution with that one...

5. on a serious note. After 4 more years of Trump Tulsi just may be our president.

Reality is eight years of one party in the white house then eight years of the other.

This lady deserves respect and she is not out there telling the lies to get it. She is a straight shooter.

I don't agree with her politics but I respect her for what she has done and for being a straight up and honest candidate.

If the left can keep people like her around they will retake the white house sooner or later.

7. Tulsi actually served our nation in Iraq as a member of our armed forces. ...

She has far more right to be critical of a war Hillary supported than Joy Behar.

8. Do you believe that if Tulsi had not been a "woman of color", that

Whoopie and Joy would have handled her with kid gloves as they did?

No, they would have tried to rip her to pieces.

They got caught with their pants down... that's all.
