Gabbard professed that is not, in fact, a useful idiot, a Russian asset or a trojan horse. She then went on to declare her love for America and note her years of service as a combat war veteran.
In Gabbard’s own words:
“I am a patriot, I love our country. I am a strong and intelligent woman of color, and I have dedicated almost my entire adult life to protecting the safety, the security, and the freedom of all Americans in this country.”
Behar still challenged Gabbard, asking why the 2020 Democrat has given interviews on Fox News, a channel which Behar called a “propaganda machine.”
Gabbard responded to the question by explaining her commitment to speaking with all Americans, including those who disagree with her. Behar then sarcastically interjected, stating that “it’s nice to think that can happen.”
