Tulsi Gabbard Backs Off DNC Debate Boycott Threat

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) intrigued voters last week with her threat to boycott Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate. She claimed that the DNC was colluding with the corporate media to rig the 2020 election, and she wanted no part of it.


"I am seriously considering boycotting the October 15 debate to bring attention to DNC/corporate media’s effort to rig 2020 primary," she said in a Twitter video on Thursday. "Not against Bernie this time, but against voters in early states..."

"They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic and they're holding so called debates which really are not debates at all, but rather commercialized reality television," she continued.

She then read something over the weekend that appeared to "prove her point."


But now she's seriously withdrawing her threat, she informed us on Monday.

No explanation as to if or how her fears had been allayed...just those six words.

Gabbard's social media critics concluded that her decision just gives credence to claims that it was all a publicity stunt.

This was another popular sentiment.

Tuesday's debate, moderated by CNN and The New York Times, begins at 8 p.m. ET. Townhall will be live blogging the event.
