Tulsi Gabbard Says Kamala Is ‘Everything Wrong With the Democrat Party’
(TheRedWire.com) – On Tuesday, October 11, former Democratic presidential nominee and Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard announced she was leaving the Democratic Party. On Wednesday, she endorsed Trump-backed candidate Joe Kent (R-WA) in a competitive House seat in Washington state. Before she backed the Republicans, she continued her scorched-Earth effort to expose Democrats’ elitism and wokeness. In particular, the former presidential contender blasted Vice President Kamala Harris as an example of “everything wrong with the Democratic Party.”
During the 2020 presidential election, Gabbard effectively ended then-Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) campaign for president. On Wednesday, she again criticized the vice president for her double standards on important issues, including prosecuting marijuana cases as district attorney in San Francisco. The outspoken politician said Harris ran proudly on her record in late 2019, and Gabbard noted how she held the Californian lawmaker to account for it. The former Hawaiian congresswoman said the progressive VP experienced no consequences for using pot, but she had no problem prosecuting and jailing people who did the same thing.

Since losing the nomination in 2020, Gabbard has consistently criticized the Democratic Party. She said it no longer aligns with the people but reflects elitist values. She has not said whether she will register as a Republican or identify politically as an Independent. After her Tuesday announcement, she stated that many Democrats who are also upset by the party’s wokeness reached out to her.
