War veteran and 2020 Democrat Tulsi Gabbard has consistently gotten less media coverage than other contenders. Her tussles with the Democrat establishment are certainly a factor, seeing as many Democrat elites fear Gabbard; unlike Joe Biden, she’s not an easily malleable puppet and she’s conducted herself very differently from other Democrats seeking to become the next president.
Earlier this week, the Hawaii congresswoman called out Fox News anchor Dana Perino for airing a segment in which Karl Rove referred to Elizabeth Warren as the last remaining female candidate. Of course, Warren is not the only remaining candidate, seeing as Gabbard is still running for president.
In challenging Perino, the war veteran also called out Elizabeth Warren, branding the Massachusetts senator as a “fake, indigenous woman of color,” as reported by Breitbart News.
The Latest on Gabbard and Warren
Gabbard’s condemnation of the false report occurred via her social media channels. Not only is the congresswoman still in the race, but she’s also maintained her candidacy longer than other Democrats who previously dropped out. Some candidates who bowed out while Gabbard remains in the race include Mike Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Amy Klobuchar, and Pete Buttigieg.
In calling out Rove’s inaccurate statement about female Democrat candidates, Gabbard reminded Americans of Warren’s fake claims about being Native American. The Hawaii congresswoman did this by pointing out that while she herself is a “real, indigenous woman of color,” the same cannot be said for Warren.
Warren has not yet publicly responded to Gabbard’s statement; however, the Massachusetts senator cannot escape her past lies about her heritage. Worst yet is that Warren used these lies to benefit her academic career and get ahead where she would have otherwise failed.
More on Gabbard’s Run for the Presidency
As Tulsi Gabbard continues running for president, she’s been outspoken about the coronavirus and preventing its spread. According to new updates from her social media channels, the war veteran recently voted in favor of emergency funding designed to prevent the expansion of coronavirus.
The legislation has received bipartisan support and contains $8.2 billion dollars meant to go towards tests and critical equipment for healthcare providers, first responders, and others working against the disease.
