Tulsi Gabbard Gets A Dose of Her Own Medicine After Saying This Democratic Candidate Is Not Qualified For Commander-In-Chief
During an appearance on Fox Sports Radio's Outkick the Coverage with Clay Travis" show, Democratic hopeful Tulsi Gabbard took a shot at fellow candidate Kamala Harris.
Gabbard claimed that Harris is "not qualified" to be president of the United State because of her lack of experience in foreign policy.
Gabbard said about Kamala Harris,
"I think one of the things I'm most concerned with is Kamala Harris is not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief, and I can say this from a personal perspective as a soldier. She's got no background or experience in foreign policy and she lacks the temperament that is necessary for a commander-in-chief.
"I've seen the cost of war firsthand. I've experienced the consequences of what happens when we have presidents, as we have from both political parties in the White House, who lack experience, who lack that foreign policy understanding, who therefore fall under the influence of the foreign policy establishment, the military-industrial complex. This is what's so dangerous. This is what we've seen occurring over time."
Gabbard herself actually served in Iraq on the Hawaii Army National Guard and she's definitely no fan of Harris.
According to USA Today,
Harris experienced a bump in polling following the first 2020 Democratic primary debate after her powerful exchange with frontrunner Joe Biden. Harris called out the former vice president for opposing federally mandated busing to integrate schools while he was in Congress.
Gabbard, however, has since criticized Harris for engaging in that exchange with Biden, because it was, in Gabbard's view, "underhanded."
"Personal attacks just for the sake of trying to push yourself forward in the campaign I think are underhanded," she said during an interview with "The View" on Monday.
But it wasn't long before Lily Adams, who is Kamala Harris' campaign spokesperson fired back at Gabbard on Twitter.
“Definite hard pass on taking national security advice from Assad’s cheerleader.”

Gabbard is only polled at about 1% currently among the dozens of other candidates in the race and will be on the same stage of Harris in the next round of debates set for next week.
