In her first words at tonight’s Democratic Debate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) went right after… the Democratic Party.
Gabbard was asked about her spat over the past month with Hillary Clinton, who called her a Russian asset. In the wake of that, Gabbard called Clinton a warmonger, accusing her of being everything wrong with the Democratic party.
And Gabbard decided to go with an attack on the entire Democratic party.
I’m running for President to rebuild our democratic party, take it out of the hands of the foreign policy establishment in Washington, the military industrial complex and greedy corporate interests and truly put it in the hands of the people -TULSI2020 #TULSIGabbard #DemDebate pic.twitter.com/uFs4rUCUEe

“Our Democratic party, unfortunately, is not of, by, and for the people. It is a party … that continues to be influenced by the foreign policy establishment represented by Hillary Clinton… by the military-industrial complex, and other corporate interests.”
It was a line of criticism Gabbard has frequently hit the establishment with. And while her calling out Dems in the primary earned a vicious response from Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who noted Gabbard’s ties to Fox News and Steve Bannon, one group enjoyed Gabbard’s comments.

Gabbard has long been the favorite of conservatives in every debate so far, and it looks like Wednesday is no different.
