GABBARD ON HANNITY: ‘War Should Always Be a Last Resort’
Democratic presidential hopeful Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard spoke with Sean Hannity Thursday night; slamming Hillary Clintons “war-mongering” foreign policy after she smeared her as a “Russian asset.”
“She’s basically accusing you of being a traitor… Slander is a big deal, your reaction?” asked Hannity.
“I’m proud to wear the uniform of this country… I’ve been deployed twice to the Middle East. I’ve seen first-hand the terribly high human cost of war. My job in Iraq was working in a field medical unit,” said Gabbard.
“Those of us who have seen the cost of war, we fight for peace. We’re not pacifists, sometimes war is necessary. But we see that war should always be a last resort. Hillary Clinton’s not only calling me a traitor, she’s sending a warning out to every veteran, anyone who stands up against war-mongering foreign policies,” she added.

Gabbard released a fiery video in response to Clinton’s comments earlier this week; calling Hillary the “queen of warmongers.”
“Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you,” posted Gabbard on social media.
… powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.
