It’s no secret that Donald Trump led the Republican Party into a love affair with Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump famously stood in front of the world and told everyone that he believed Putin over his own intelligence agencies and called for their government to illegally hack into the computer servers of his political opponents.
You are a liar @TulsiGabbard. You lie for notoriety and self promotion. Worse yet, as an agent of Russian disinformation you promote Russian aggression and endanger America. You have picked a side. Your side is Russia and authoritarianism. https://t.co/0FjZ9uwZ43

Tulsi Gabbard, the former congresswoman from Hawaii who was voted out after running for president on a pro-Russia platform, has been carrying Trump’s and Putin’s water for some time, but her rhetoric ramped up while filling in for Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
Gabbard shared dire warnings to the U.S. government and President Joe Biden from a script that could have been written by Putin himself, criticizing the U.S. military and Biden for coming to the aid of Ukraine and, like many other NATO countries, funding their efforts to defend themselves.
‘Despite their lectures and their crocodile tears, it’s never been about morality. It’s not about the people of Ukraine or protecting democracy. This is about regime change in Russia and exploiting this war to strengthen NATO and feed the military industrial complex. Now, for Joe Biden, it’s even about brining about “a new world order,” “we’ve gotta lead it,” he says. and he’s trying to do just that, even if it brings us to the brink of nuclear catastrophe. ‘
Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who served as Director for European Affairs for the United States National Security Council until he was stripped of his position for putting his life on the line to warn Americans about plans by the president to extort Ukraine, responded on Twitter to Gabbard’s pro-Russia speech.
‘You are a liar @TulsiGabbard. You lie for notoriety and self promotion. Worse yet, as an agent of Russian disinformation you promote Russian aggression and endanger America. You have picked a side. Your side is Russia and authoritarianism.’
Twitter was quick to agree with Vindman, expressing their own feelings about Gabbard’s pro-Russia, anti-America stance. Read some of their comments below:
