Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) had nothing but positive things to say about Glenn Youngkin’s win over Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. In fact, she thinks it’s a victory for all Americans.
”I think that the American people — it’s clear, as we saw in Virginia — is a positive sign that they’re rejecting the kind of divisiveness, racialization of everything in this country, the fomenting of anger and hatred that unfortunately we’re seeing coming from so many of my fellow Democrats,” Gabbard told Fox News.
”You know, when you have people in positions of power who arrogantly believe that they’re not accountable to the people and who treat us like we’re stupid — like they know better, they know best what’s good for us more than we know ourselves and all we got to do is blindly follow along and listen. It’s no wonder that people are rejecting that,” Gabbard added.
Last week, Gabbard took heat from fellow Democrats when she posted the following on Twitter: “McAuliffe’s loss is a victory for all Americans. Why? Because it was a resounding rejection of efforts to divide us by race, the stripping of parental rights, and arrogant, deaf leaders. This benefits us all.”
