Tulsi Gabbard Joins The Blaming Of Trump For Iran’s Fatal Attack On A Civilian Airliner

2020 Democratic candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii refused to blame Iran for shooting down a Ukrainian jetliner in Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” Friday morning. Instead, she joined Pete Buttigieg in blaming President Trump for the death of 176 people aboard the Ukrainian passenger plane.

Buttigieg initiated the narrative that the United States is to blame for Iran shooting down the Ukrainian plane, saying the victims “were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat.”

Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat.

My thoughts are with the families and loved ones of all 176 souls lost aboard this flight. https://t.co/zWaVgWxfdL

Gabbard joined in Buttigieg’s criticism, blaming Trump for allegedly escalating the problems with Iran, and alleging the deaths are, “consequences of this escalation and this state of war that we are in.”

“Having foresight and being able to look at what the consequences are of going to war with Iran, I think is a serious thing, and responsibility of the present Commander-in-Chief, that he and his administration have not looked at,” Gabbard said.

Fox News Anchor Bill Hemmer pressed Gabbard about whether or not she agrees with Buttigieg.

“My point is, this is a very unfortunate consequence of this escalation of war,” Gabbard responded.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, criticized the “crossfire” narrative being perpetuated by Democrats like Buttigeg and now Gabbard.

“Just because Dems hate Trump doesn’t justify false equivalence with Iran,” Cruz tweeted.

Uh, Pete, they weren’t “caught in the middle.” They were shot down BY IRAN. Military incompetence by the leading state sponsor of terrorism. Just because Dems hate Trump doesn’t justify false equivalence w/ Iran. Soleimani was a brutal terrorist who killed hundreds of Americans. https://t.co/KiGS8p5kHL

It appears 2020 Democrats are unable to condemn a brutal authoritarian regime because that would mean they understand the decisions made by the Trump administration, in regards to Iran, were correct. The Democrats’ diagnosed Trump derangement syndrome hinders their ability to do such.

  1. Trump was 100% wrong in not offering condolences to Ukraine over this crash, but this poor excuse for a human needs to get a life. God help the US if scum like this get elected this year.

      • I wish he would love Ukraine the same way. Manafort, a Yanuk manager, also had connections to Ukraine, even if as of today in a negative way. Trump needs to understand that Ukraine is the center of the world, while marxism and islam are the end of the world.

  2. Gabbard is a putlerite. The kremkrappers already talent spotted this bitch and she gets favourable coverage in the top kremtroll sites like Sputnik and RT. Even putler’s far right media assets in the US, such as infowars (Alex Jones), Breitbart, Gateway Pundit and Savage Nation speak kindly of her.
    A barmy Bernie/Gabbard ticket would be enough for the kremkrappers to switch from Trumpkov. Actually they may even have already decided that from the parade of halfwits and freaks that the Dems have assembled for this year, any would be worth backing.

  3. This one is a real piece of work . Even the Iranians are smart enough to not try to blame this tragedy on Trump .
    From Nikki Haley ;
    Haley said the strike that killed Soleimani left Iran “shaking in their boots” and added that the Tehran government “did not see this coming.”

    What the president did left the Iranian regime completely flat-footed,” she said. “… They thought that they could continue to do their multiplex strikes, but when it got to the lives of Americans, the president is never going to allow that’ll to happen … You could see the Ayatollah crying today, because that was his number one strategist. That was the number one guy that has literally told all of the proxies in all of these countries who to kill, when to kill, how to kill, and that guy’s now gone.”You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran,” Haley said on “Hannity” Monday. “You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members [states], you’re not hearing China, you’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates.”

  4. I am quite dissapointed at that man for some reasons, but he is responsible for this act of terror?
    So silly.
