posted by Hannity Staff - 10.11.22

Former congresswoman and one-time presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is finding a warm welcome from those on the right —and a cold shoulder from bitter lefties.

Former “The View” host Meghan McCain tweeted, “Congratulations, there are so few free thinkers and independents left in this world and you are one of them. We are in your corner. Onward and upward!”

Other prominent GOP voices celebrated the trend of Americans leaving the Democratic Party behind.

“Bad news for Democrats, @TulsiGabbard isn’t the only one leaving the Democrat party. Skyrocketing inflation, terrifying crime, deadly borders, unaffordable gas & energy, and an unwanted war with Russia are all serious issues affecting every single American & caused by Democrats,” tweeted Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Grenne.

Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert also expressed her excitement that so many people were leaving the Dems in the dust.

“.@TulsiGabbard is leaving the Democrat Party just like millions and millions of common sense Americans! So glad to see so many people waking up to the scam that they’ve been perpetrating on voters for years.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich went on Fox News to commend Tulsi’s move towards the center.

“I think Tulsi is somebody who has always spoken her own mind. She’s always been sort of an independent maverick. And I think when she ran for president, she realized how really isolated she was from the great majority of the Democratic Party, which is now, frankly, a pretty weird party,” Gingrich said.

From Fox News:

Managing Editor of Hot Air Ed Morrissey tweeted, “Don’t hold back,@TulsiGabbard, tell us how you really feel. This may also be how a lot of disillusioned Dems feel right now, too,” before quoting Gabbard’s initial comments.

Senior counsel at the Internet Accountability Project, Will Chamberlain, cheered the news too writing, “Democrats got Bill Kristol and we are going to get Tulsi Gabbard…Winning.”

National Director of Priests for Life Fr. Frank Pavone tweeted, “Praying for Tulsi and that many more see the light as well.”

The moderate Democrat has irked the left for speaking out against “woke” ideology within her party as well as being a fierce critic of the Biden administration.
