Tulsi Gabbard accuses The View’s Joy Behar of calling her stupid

Tulsi Gabbard didn’t waste time taking on the issue that’s dogged her fledgling campaign for president.

Appearing on The View, Gabbard confronted the hosts for previously accusing her of “being a traitor to my country, a Russian asset, a Trojan horse or a useful idiot, I think is the term that you used, which basically means that I am naive or lack intelligence,” asserted Gabbard.

Gabbard, a veteran of the Iraq War and a member of the Hawaii Army National Guard, called herself “patriot” and a “strong and intelligent woman of color” who has “dedicated almost my entire adult life to protecting the safety, security and the freedom of all Americans in this country.”

Host Joy Behar called Gabbard an “unwitting” asset of Russia, “not that that means you’re stupid, but people can be used.” 

“That exactly what that means though,” Gabbard replied. “Let me start with how offensive it is to say that I’m a witting or unwitting asset of a foreign country, working against the interests of my country, a country that I am willing to lay my life down for. So if you are saying it’s not deliberately, then you are implying that I am too stupid and too naive and lack the intelligence to know what I am doing. And that is extremely offensive to me and to every woman of color.”
