Since the inception of her candidacy, war veteran and 2020 Democrat Tulsi Gabbard has never hesitated to criticize either side when she views it as appropriate.
Despite backlash from her own party, Gabbard consistently demonstrates a willingness to engage in conversation with a variety of publications, even conservative ones. On her social media channels, the war veteran also talks about the importance of unity, while criticizing the common Democrat tendency to disparage and denigrate Trump-supporting Americans.

Yesterday, the 2020 candidate spoke out against the disastrous Iowa caucus results and the DNC’s alteration of their debate requirements. As documented by Breitbart News, Gabbard slammed the Iowa Democrat Party’s lack of “transparency and integrity” in their caucus; then, she hit the DNC for “rigging” the primary process in the favor of billionaire, gun-hating candidate Mike Bloomberg.
Reviewing Gabbard’s Censure of the DNC and Iowa Democrat Party
As of last week, the DNC scrapped its mandate for 2020 Democrats to have a certain amount of individual donors to make it on the debate stages. This decision, interestingly enough, came after the self-funded Mike Bloomberg entered the 2020 race. With the removal of the individual donor requirement comes a cleared pathway for Bloomberg to make his way on the debate stages.
As such, Gabbard didn’t hesitate to call out the DNC’s allowance of Bloomberg “[bypassing] grassroots campaigning that is the fuel of [Gabbard’s] movement.” In additional parts of her statement, the war veteran zinged the “corporate media,” Democrat Party establishment, and “military-industrial complex” for intentionally ignoring and silencing her campaign.
The censorship of her presidential campaign is an issue Gabbard also addressed when CNN infamously excluded her from a town hall of other 2020 Democrats, even those with lower poll numbers that her.
When addressing the massive failure of this week’s Iowa caucus, Gabbard stated that the lack of owed “transparency” has understandably frustrated voters. The war veteran pointed out that as the Iowa Democrat Party continues their quests to do damage control, Iowan voices have yet to be heard.
What is Gabbard’s Campaign Doing Now?
At this time, the 2020 Democrat is focusing her energies on doing as well as possible in New Hampshire. Unlike other candidates running for office, Gabbard has been campaigning in the state for quite some time, holding a series of town halls and other events.
Presently, the war veteran is attempting to raise $1.5 million dollars before New Hampshire’s Election Day on November 11. Earlier this week, Gabbard also participated in a run to support Hope for New Hampshire Recovery’s fight against opioid addiction. During the event, the 2020 Democrats hugged, spoke with, and took selfies with supporters.
