B eto O & Rourke defends Tulsi Gabbard when asked about Hillary Clinton's claim that Russia "cares" for the Hawaii Congressman as a third-party spoiler candidate.
"That's not right, nobody treats Tulsi," the Texas-based Texas Congressman said on Saturday about his rival candidate for the Democratic president. "She is her own person, has obviously served this country, and continues to serve this country in Congress in uniform as a presidential candidate, and I think these facts speak for themselves."

"They will be third again," said Clinton (71). "I do not make any predictions, but I think they keep an eye on someone who is in democratic elementary school and is training them as a candidate for a third party, she's a favorite with the Russians, they have one." A whole range of websites and bots and other ways to support them so far. That's assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she may not do, because she's also a Russian asset.
Gabbard responded to Clinton's contention in a fiery series of tweets on Friday.
"You, the queen of the warmongers, the embodiment of corruption and personification of rot that has made the Democratic Party ill for so long, are finally behind The Curtain, "said Gabbard," It is now clear that this main character is between you and me. Do not hide your cowardly behind your representatives. Take part in the race. "
Democratic presidential hopefuls Andrew Yang, a technology entrepreneur, and Marianne Williamson, a spiritual writer, have also spoken out in favor of Gabbard.
" Tulsi Gabbard deserves much more respect and thanks , She has literally just returned from her overseas service, "Yang tweeted Friday." Gabbard, currently a Major in the Hawaii Army National Guard, took a two-week break from her training campaign in Indonesia. "
" The democratic establishment must stop smearing women, which finds it impractical! The murder of women who do not follow the party line will backfire. Stay strong @TulsiGabbard. You deserve respect and you have mine, "Williamson tweeted early Saturday morning.
Other Democratic presidential candidates have avoided taking sides in the controversy between Gabbard and Clinton, or expressed skepticism towards the candidate.
" Everyone has one Right to his opinion, "Californian Senator Kamala Harris said on Friday with a laugh ." There's nothing else to say. "
" I have great respect for Clinton and leave it at that, " Former Housing Minister Julián Castro said on Friday .
Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey tweeted a GIF of himself on Friday from an earlier round of the Democratic presidential debate, skeptical about Gabbard's tweets.
