Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii attacked her opponent Representative Elizabeth Warren and called the senator a “fake indigenous woman of color.”
The Hawaii congresswoman made an attack to the response of one news segment from Fox when Karl Rove, a political strategist, forgot or may be even ignored that Gabbard is still in the race for presidency.
She only has just one pledge for a delegate and is consistent to be nearing the bottom during polls.
During that interview, “The Daily Briefing” with host Dana Perino, he was referring Warren “only woman left” in the race.
This may have been not a good comment for Tulsi Gabbard.
Gabbard shared on her Twitter – .@DanaPerino I’m not quite sure why you’re telling FOX viewers that Elizabeth Warren is the last female candidate in the Dem primary. Is it because you believe a fake indigenous woman of color is “real” and the real indigenous woman of color in this race is fake?
Gabbard was born in the American Samoa and has grown up in Hawaii. According to Hill, Waren was claiming she was “American Indian”.
She had some sparring with the US President over her heritage and she released a report that she was 1/64th Native American or 1/1024th.
It didn’t help her.
Other candidates proved to be more successful than Gabbard like former South Bend., Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, and Minnesota Sen.
Amy Klobuchar (D) who have dropped out. Whereas Gabbard still chose to stand in the race.
On Super Tuesday, there were 1,357 delegates but the congresswoman only just got one delegate for the second-place finish.
The Democrats up for the running will be meeting again this month for the 11th debate but there will be one candidate who would not be able to make it for the cut due to higher qualification requirement.
The DNC have shared a tweet on Tuesday night that they are changing the requirement, “We have two more debates– of course the threshold will go up. By the time we have the March debate, almost 2,000 delegates will be allocated. The threshold will reflect where we are in the race, as it always has.”
Those candidates who have one pledged delegate will qualify automatically for the debate that have been in Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina this year.
Hinojosa didn’t specify yet what kind of requirements would that be but if Gabbard wouldn’t have more pledged delegates, she will be left out for the next one this March 15th in Arizona.
One of Gabbard’s supporters said, “They’re not just ignoring her, they’re erasing her. They’re weaving a whole alternative reality out of narrative in which she is, officially, no longer in the race.”
Some of Gabbard’s views includes holding the policy of “let’s bomb terrorists out of existence”.
According to some analysts, she is representing a very little minority in the party and it is considered to be not the best ones.
During the impeachment, she voted present for the charges in the house.
