Tulsi going on Fox to bring up Hillary and trash the party is not the narrative we need getting out there. She's either on someone's payroll to purposely bring down the party, or she's running the worst campaign imaginable.

What Fox does is rarely talk about Trump. We hear all Trump's insanity, but Fox News viewers don't. I ask my conservative family what they think of Trump's latest meltdown and they simply have no clue. They literally haven't seen it. If you actually sit down and watch Fox, they actually barely cover the president. What they talk about 24/7 is any dirt they can find or invent on the Democrats.

Nancy Pelosi is on the cover of Foxnews.com every single day. Trump isn't. This is the problem. How can you win people over when Fox doesn't even represent reality?

Going on Fox to defend herself against attacks by Hillary is something she's entitled to do.

To be fair according to reporting from late September her campaign had just over $2 million cash on hand, Yang had over three times as much cash on hand as she did and he was a couple of million below Biden. Her campaign probably can't afford to set up and staff field offices.

The whole thing started after someone "accidentally" misquoted Hillary.

The whole thing just smells funny. I'm not big on the whole online conspiracy thing, but this is exactly the kind of thing that alt right (or worse) groups would manufacture.

This is what Gabbard's russian operative, who handles her PR, would do.

Nobody misquoted her, that's just the cover her and her camp are using because in typical Hillary Clinton style she stepped in it again. She said "assuming Jill Stein will give it up, she's also a Russian asset" and when her aide was asked to clarify the statement his initial response was "if the nesting doll fits" she knew what she was doing but as is typical with HRC she misjudged the situation.

Once again her top aide said "if the nesting doll fits" when asked for clarification, Clinton brought the Russian thing in when talking about Stein and said "also" meaning she was talking about her and Gabbard.

Full quote
Clinton: “Well, I think there’s gonna be two parts and I think it’s gonna be the same as 2016: ‘Don’t vote for the other guy. You don’t like me? Don’t vote for the other guy because the other guy is gonna do X, Y and Z or the other guy did such terrible things and I’m gonna show you in these, you know, flashing videos that appear and then disappear and they’re on the dark web, and nobody can find them, but you’re gonna see them and you’re gonna see that person do these horrible things.’

“They’re also gonna do third party again. And I’m not making any predictions but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up. Which she might not, ‘cause she’s also a Russian asset.”
This was in response to a question about what Trump may do, someone who she said the Russians helped elect, she can dance her way around it all she wants but she is the one who put this together in the first place. Stein isn't even running but she went out of her way to attack her too.

She said GOP was grooming and it was reported as Russia was grooming her. Sure sounds like a misquote.
