Fmr Dem Rep Tulsi Gabbard Turns on Biden, Blasts Him for Vowing to Punish Border Agents: ‘Absolutely Wrong’


Former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard blasted Joe Biden over his decision to condemn Border Patrol agents.

Gabbard said Biden was “absolutely wrong” to criticize the agents without the facts.

Gabbard said, “He’s absolutely wrong and he needs to apologize to the American people for saying what he said.”

“What he essentially did was act as judge, jury and executioner for these Customs and Border [Protection] agents on horseback,” she said.

“How can they expect to have any kind of fair outcome to an investigation when the president of the United States has already declared their guilt and that they will be punished?” she said.

A photo of a Border Patrol agent recently surfaced on horseback showing the agent using what appeared to be a whip as Haitian illegal immigrants continue to flood into the country.

However, it was not a whip. Photographer Paul Ratje explained the agent was holding the rein of the horse and not a whip as some believed.

“I’ve never seen them whip anyone,” Ratje said.

“He was swinging it, but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture,” he added.

Gabbard responded, “If we are no longer a country of laws, if we are no longer a country where we know we will be presumed innocent unless proven guilty, then we don’t have a democracy.”

“That’s the increasing feeling that a lot of us have, is that we are losing our democracy and moving closer and closer to what essentially is an autocracy,” she said.

“They are unwilling to sacrifice their interests for the interests of the country,” she said.

“They have no business being in positions of leadership at any level in our society because who suffers as a result of this? It’s the American people. It’s our democracy. And they don’t care about the cost and the toll that that takes,” Gabbard continued.

“And this is why leadership that puts service above self, that puts the interest of the American people in our country first, is so critical and essential — especially now,” she concluded.

The photographer noted, “[I]t was horrible what — to see, as you saw — to see people treated like they did: horses nearly running them over and people being strapped. It’s outrageous.”

“I promise you, those people will pay. They will be — an investigation is underway now, and there will be consequences. There will be consequences. It’s an embarrassment. But beyond an embarrassment, it’s dangerous; it’s wrong,” he said.
