On Monday, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) met with President-Elect Donald Trump to discuss U.S. policy in Syria. Tonight, while appearing on MSNBC’s “Hard Ball,” former Vermont Governor Howard Dean attacked Gabbard for meeting with Trump.
“She’s an interesting person. And the people from Hawaii basically have her tabbed as an extremely ambitious with flexible principles,” Dean told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. “She was a lefty for Bernie, and now she’s talking about running against Mazie Hirono, who’s a left wing or liberal senator from the Hawaii. So who knows what this is all about.”
Rep. Gabbard joined in the Hawaii Army National Guard in 2004 and served a 12-month tour in Iraq.
Mr. Dean himself has a dubious history when it comes to serving his country. In 1970, Dean avoided going to Vietnam by receiving a medical deferment for an unfused vertebra, but later admitted in an interview he could have served saying, “I mean, I was in no hurry to get into the military.”
Rep. Gabbard continues to serve in the Hawaii Army National Guard and currently holds the rank of Major.
