Meghan McCain Clashes With ‘View’ Co-Hosts on Tulsi Gabbard: She’s No ‘Russian Stooge’

Meghan McCain Clashes With ‘View’ Co-Hosts on Tulsi Gabbard: She’s No ‘Russian Stooge’Meghan McCain rallied to Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard’s defense Thursday on The View, as she pushed back against her co-hosts’ concerns that the Hawaii congresswoman could be a “Trojan horse” getting a boost from Russian propaganda outlets.During Wednesday night’s Democratic primary debate, Gabbard had a brief breakout moment when she called out California Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on her record as a prosecutor and on criminal justice. Following the debate, however, Harris dissed Gabbard’s low poll numbers while criticizing the congresswoman for being an “apologist” for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.“The Republicans like her, and I think she’s a real Trojan horse here because when you look at her record, in particular, she’s apologized for it but she was very anti-LGBTQ community,” co-host Sunny Hostin said Thursday on The View. “She also has praised Trump for meeting with Kim Jong Un three times.”“That’s why they like her,” liberal host Joy Behar quipped.Hostin, meanwhile, went on to highlight that Gabbard voted for a measure that would prevent Syrian refugees from settling in America, adding that the Democratic lawmaker also has refused to call Assad a war criminal.“Per an NBC News report, Russian propaganda machines favor Gabbard,” she continued. “When I look at that, I’m concerned she is attacking Harris and I’m concerned that she has any traction.”McCain, however, praised Gabbard for getting a “really good blow” on Harris before dismissing the notion that the Hawaii representative is a Trojan horse is “just political posturing.”This prompted co-host Ana Navarro to note that she may just be “paranoid” but Gabbard has suddenly received a lot of support from people “who used to dislike her tremendously.”“There is a lot of writings in Russia Today and Russian traffic around Tulsi,” Navarro stated, referencing the notorious Russian propaganda media arm. “There is something going on. I suspect it’s not knowingly by her because I think she’s a decent human being who served this country, but I’m paranoid.”McCain seemingly took this to mean that any Republican who found Gabbard intriguing was being influenced by Russia, bringing up the fact that her family is sanctioned from traveling to Russia while explaining why she liked Gabbard.“Nobody is saying you,” Navarro shot back. “I’m talking about other people. Just because I’m making a reference, doesn’t mean it’s a reference to you.”McCain and Navarro went back and forth a bit more, with Navarro pointing out that a GOP congressman ended his friendship with Gabbard over her Assad apologism. “I’m not supporting her,” McCain asserted. “I’m just saying she’s interesting, and the idea because she got a big hit on Kamala and now she’s a ‘Russian stooge’—”“I’m not saying that!” Navarro exclaimed, leading the rest of the table to argue until, of course, Whoopi Goldberg jumped in to break it up.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Gabbard Says Harris Owes an Apology to Those Who ‘Suffered Under Your Reign’ as Prosecutor

Gabbard Says Harris Owes an Apology to Those Who ‘Suffered Under Your Reign’ as ProsecutorRepresentative Tulsi Gabbard ripped into presidential rival senator Kamala Harris's prosecutorial record during the Democratic primary debate Wednesday evening, accusing the former California attorney general of propagating a hypocritical standard of justice.Gabbard said she is "deeply concerned" about Harris's record on criminal justice from her time as district attorney in San Francisco and later attorney general of California.Harris “put over 1500 people in jail for marijuana violations and laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked,” Gabbard said as the California senator shook her head.Gabbard added that Harris also "blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so."The Hawaii senator also said Harris “kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California" and "fought to keep cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way.”"When you were in a position to make a difference and an impact in these people's lives, you did not and worse yet in the case of those who are on death row, innocent people, you actually blocked evidence from being revealed that would have freed them until you were forced to do so," Gabbard said."There's no excuse for that and the people who suffered under your reign as prosecutor, you owe them an apology," she told Harris.Harris defended her record as a prosecutor, saying she “did the work of significantly reforming the criminal justice system of a state of 40 million people, which became a national model for the work that needs to be done.”"I think you can judge people by when they are under fire and it's not about some fancy opinion on a stage but when they're in the position to actually make a decision what do they do," Harris responded. "When I was in the position of having to decide whether or not to seek a death penalty on cases I prosecuted, I made a very difficult decision that was not popular to not seek the death penalty. History shows that and I am proud of those decisions.”Wednesday was not the first time the Hawaii senator has targeted Harris. Earlier this month, Gabbard said Harris is "is not qualified to serve as commander in chief."“I can say this from personal experience as a soldier,” Gabbard said. “She has no background or experience in foreign policy and she lacks the temperament that is necessary for commander in chief.”
