BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 A.M.) – During an interview on The View, yesterday, U.S. presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard was grilled by Meghan McCain over her previous meeting with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

McCain began by thanking Gabbard for her military service, but then quickly turned to her perception of the U.S. presidential hopeful.

“When I hear the name Tulsi Gabbard, I think of Assad apologist. I think of someone who comes back to the United States and is spouting propaganda from Syria,” McCain said.

“You have said that the Syrian President, Assad, is not the enemy of the United States,” McCain said, referencing Gabbard’s previous comments on MSNBC, “yet he’s used chemical weapons against his own people 300 times.”

McCain’s chemical weapons claim was in reference to a recent article from the Global Public Policy Institute which said the government had used these internationally banned weapons more than 300 times since 2013.

Gabbard responded to McCain’s comments by accusing her of “putting words in [her] mouth.”

When she was asked to clarify her position, Gabbard stood her ground and reiterated that Assad was not enemy of the United State.

“An enemy of the United States is someone who threatens our safety and our security,” she said.

“There is no disputing the fact that Bashar al-Assad and Syria is a brutal dictator,” Gabbard continued.

“There’s no disputing the fact that he has used chemical weapons and other weapons against his people. There are other terrorist groups in Syria who have used similar chemical weapons and other weapons of terror against the people of Syria,” she woud add.

Since she announced her intention to run for the presidency, her views on foreign policy began to evolve and get closer to the Anglo-Zionist Swamp. If she wins in the election she will be the next Obama/Trump.

f**k that Zionist b***h. She supports “Israel”, of course she wants al Qaida to ruin secular Syria. She’s a lying piece of trash, just like the rest of the American politicians.

This is disheartening. I genuinely had hope she was on the ‘right’ side. Turns out she’s another zionist POS. I got duped like an idiot, the shame!

Could Tulsi give me proof of the Syrian government ever using chemical weapons? And those reports from Bellingcat, HRW or Charles Lister won’t do. They are US propaganda.

The northamerican people just care about “brutal dictator” everything else said is totally irrelevant, and politician always emphasizes this over and over again to justify USA madness in Syria.

It sure didn’t take long for her to be reined in. I wonder when she got the call? Probably just after she announced that she would run. Maybe they just sent her a photo-shopped picture of a cemetery with all her family’s headstones. No matter, it worked. This was a no-brainer…after all they did the same to Perot. This is why we can’t wait for or rely on a ‘saviour’. Change has to come from the town level, where the corruption starts.

Do you remember Obama promising “change” ? I expect the same from Tulsi promising “peace”. People should have already learnt long time ago to never ever vote either Democrat or Republican – but they are always fooled again and again by some new puppet who will be “different”. Bernie Sanders is no exception either.
