Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is threatening to boycott next week's Democratic presidential debate amid accusations that the Democratic National Committee and the media are "rigging" the 2020 primary elections against dark horse candidates like herself. Gabbard, who reached the qualification thresholds for next Tuesday's debate in Ohio, called the qualifications "arbitrary" and said DNC leaders "are trying to hijack the entire election process." She said she will decide in the next few days whether she will participate in the debate. "The DNC and corporate media are trying to hijack the entire election process," Gabbard said in a video posted on Twitter. "In order to bring attention to this serious threat to our democracy, and ensure your voice is heard, I am giving serious consideration to boycotting the next debate on October 15th."

Gabbard's complaint about the DNC "rigging" the primary election dredges up similar objections from 2016 when the DNC was accused of favoring former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

"The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders," Gabbard said. "In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada."

I think Tulsi is slowly figuring out she's not really a democrat!

How about a GABBARD/HUNTSMAN independent Centrist ticket?

Welcome to the charade.

I believe the DNC's original hope was for a Biden/Harris ticket.

But Gabbard cut down Harris.

The DNC is still trying to get Biden as the presidential candidate.

As for the other twenty people trying to run, they're cannon fodder.

Most of America already figured that out.

Her politics more closely align with the Democratic party than the GOP, but she doesn't talk like a Democrat.

I agree, maybe she should run as an independent. I'd strongly consider voting for her.

I'm a registered Republican. If anything, my 3rd party vote helps the Democrat candidate more than Trump.

Prior to '16 I voted:

Dole
Bush
Bush
McCain
Romney

In '16 I voted for Johnson.
