Podcast: Queen of the Warmongers

Tulsi strikes back at Hillary

On FPF #410, I discuss Hillary Clinton suggesting that Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian agent out to undermine the DNC by running the third party.

In Tulsi’s brilliant response, she addressed Hillary as “Queen of the warmongers.”

Tulsi’s decision to take the gloves off and go after Clinton’s war hawk record is essential.

The conflict could help Tulsi’s candidacy and bring her message of ‘ending the wars’ to the spotlight.
