Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard hijacked a segment on The View to confront Joy Behar over her ‘useful idiot’ comment about her, calling comments questioning her loyalty “demeaning.”
Gabbard laughed and responded: “This is why I’m here because you and other people continue to spread these innuendos that have nothing to do with who I am.”
Watch the exchange below:
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, got into a testy exchange with “View” co-host Joy Behar on Wednesday as the 2020 candidate confronted Behar over her claim that she was a “useful idiot” for the Russians.
“Some of you have accused me of being a traitor to my country, a Russian asset, a trojan horse, or a useful idiot I think was the term that you used,” Gabbard told Behar.
“Well, useful,” Behar said, apparently trying to excuse her description. “But that’s a Russian term, they use that,” she added.
After Gabbard defended herself, Behar cited compliments of Gabbard that she saw as objectionable.
“Franklin Graham finds you refreshing. He doesn’t find me refreshing. Richard Spencer, the white nationalist leader, says he could vote for you,” she said. More

I’m not a Tulsi Gabbard fan but she is a patriot that served her country. You can’t say the same about Joy Behar. Kudos to Tulsi for forcing Joy to listen to her. She puts forth solid reasoning whether I agree with her or not.

Again, Joy Behar is exposed as the uninformed, idiot that she really is. Congresswoman Gabbard shows how much class and exposed the lack of such of Behard.
