Tulsi Gabbard's Campaign Is Being Boosted by Putin Apologists, The Daily Beast Russiagate 2.0. The MSM isn't wasting any time with this woman. Notice what the Daily Beast suggests is treasonous Russian sympathizing. Bare in mind that Tulsi is a veteran who served to tours in Iraq: ^^ This is considered treasonous in this McCarthyist political environment. If you embrace this way of thinking, you are a Far Right totalitarian. Period. This is fascism. And just plain sick.
