As Twitchy readers know, Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is set to make an announcement in the next week or so that she’s running for president.

What Twitchy readers might not know is that Gabbard is also under fire for being anti-gay in the 2000s.

If CNN is making an issue of it? Yeah.

From HuffPo:

Gabbard was elected to the U.S. House in 2012 and became the first Hindu member of Congress, as well as one of Congress’ first female combat veterans.

She quickly became a star of the Democratic Party with her own rogue brand of progressive leadership.

Gabbard’s remarks from 14 years ago were bound to resurface as she walked even further into the national spotlight with her presidential bid.

And while Gabbard, 37, has evolved since then ― she once backed a bill targeting discrimination based on sexual orientation and famously endorsed Bernie Sanders’ presidential bid at the expense of her post as Democratic National Committee vice chair ― some people, including journalists from Hawaii to D.C., wouldn’t let her off easy for her homophobic remarks.

And SHE wants to run for president.

Alrighty then.

Look how quick the Left was to jump in and defend her because she ‘evolved.’

Remember when Obama magically evolved on gay marriage in 2012? Good times.

So basically it’s ok that she targeted people based on their sexual orientation years ago because she’s a Democrat.

Must be nice to be a Democrat.


Ain’t that nice.

And look at them attacking Hillary Clinton to excuse Gabbard:

Yeah! So that makes it ok and stuff!

These people.

Awww, THAT’S what happened!

Those pesky Russian hackers.


Oh honey, NO! Lauren Duca lecturing people on how simple it is to ‘just be f**king kind’ does NOT go well

OUR EYES! Pic of Sen. Bob Menendez on the beach in PR inspires the most hilarious (and troubling) caption contest EVER

Ok, THAT was stupid even for her: What AOC compared ‘dropping her 1st resolution’ to has EVERYONE rolling their eyes
