WILMINGTON, DE – In a statement released to the press on Thursday, former vice president and democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden has announced that his campaign has been endorsed by Putin puppet and Assad apologist Tulsi Gabbard following her withdrawal from the democratic primary race.
Gabbard, who announced her presidential run on January 11th, 2019, has enjoyed a multitude of positive coverage from at least three major Moscow-based media outlets affiliated with the Russian Government. These include the Russian-owned television outlet RT, radio outlet Sputnik News, and Russia Insider, a blog which closely follows the Kremlin. The CIA has called these outlets part of Russia’s state-sponsored propaganda machine.
Democratic party leaders worried that Gabbard, who broke with the democratic party by voting “present” on both articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, was being used as a tool by the Putin regime to create chaos within the party as part of Russia’s propaganda machine aimed at disrupting US elections.
In 2017, Gabbard was subject of controversy after she traveled to Syria on a ‘fact finding’ mission to personally meet with Syria president Bashar al-Assad.
After the July 2019 democratic primary debate, Senator Kamala Harris attacked Gabbard, saying Gabbard is “an apologist for an individual, Assad, who has murdered the people of his country [like] cockroaches, she who has embraced and been an apologist for him in a way that she refuses to call him a war criminal, I can only take what she says and her opinion so seriously.”
In an October 2019 clash, Gabbard referred to former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as “queen of the warmongers” following Clinton’s statement “I think [the Russians] have got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate.”
When reached for comment, Joe Biden asked BeetPress “who is she again? Was she that cute broad with the nice hair who’d sometimes show up at the debates? Yeah, that girl’s all right.”
