) President Trump showed some props to, of all people, a Democratbut one who didn't vote to impeach him. "I give her respect," Trump said of presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard at an event in West Palm Beach, Fla.
"She didn't vote the other day. I give her a lot of respect. Because she knew it was wrong. She took a pass."
Per Mediate, Trump also touched on recent remarks by Hillary Clinton about Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and a certain "somebody" in the Democratic primary. Now, it gets complicated:
More Trump: In Trump's words, "Crooked Hillary came out, she said that Jill Stein from the Green Party, she said Jill Stein was a Russian agent.
Now, I don't know Jill Stein, I'm sure she's a fine woman. But I know she's not a Russian agent."
Even more: "Then [Clinton] said Tulsi Gabbard is a weapon of Russia," Trump added. "And they lost all credibility because you know that Tulsi Gabbard. ... I don't know, but I know one thing. She is not an agent of Russia."

I’ve long suspected 35 people here to be agents of Russia.
I need a little more evidence and then I can finish my dosser and send it to the FBI. Or the YMCA. Or the NRA.
Since it’s just a few hundred pages of insane rambling I guess it doesn’t matter where I send it.
Now that is some major trolling.
Or damning with faint praise!
Because Tulsi and Jill are both going to get heck for this from their supporters. The praise of Trump is the kiss of death for Democrats.
Tulsi and that pretty Senator from Arizona. Whats her name?
Sinema. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and Gabbard show possibilities of becoming Democrats we can work with in the future.
Sinema has always appeared to think for herself.
Progressives tried to censure her (Sinema) back in Sept., after she voted with the GOP on a number of issues.
They did not follow through with the actual censure.
Tulsi is brave. She fought in Afghanistan. She put on the uniform, served well, and still serves in the Guard. She is a firm promoter of Veterans Rights. She would be an excellent head of the Vets Administration.
You left out that she looks good in a swimsuit.
Although I am still untrustful of Sinema, atleast we dont have Flake or Mccain around to backstab us!
Tulsi’s followers are iconoclast Democrats and leftist libertarians (if such thing exists). Trump may attract some of these people.
Although she’s not polling very well against the angry socialists and Biden, I’ve gathered from my leftist associates and relatives that her message resonates among more individual freedom and peace Dems - and she carries more weight than the corrupt media will admit.
Free at last!
Sinema can turn indy and caucus with the GOP.
I have been saying that a lot too.
she was only following her community organizer idol barry soetoro in the Illinois senate! :)
Yep. For a man who has only been an official part of the political game since July of 2015 he’s running rings around all these seasoned pols.
She’s young, she’s articulate, she’s a patriot.
She’s an independent thinker. Hillary hates her.
Looks like a good candidate to me.
She should go third party. She’d steal a lot of votes away from pervy, decrepit, demented, crooked, stuttering, Deep State Joe Biden.
“Because she knew it was wrong.”
Then she should have voted against it if it was wrong.
It’s a two-pointer...many indies like her plus he jerks the Rats chain at the same time.
