Far from days of the Democrats feigning to have any semblance of an 'anti-war' platform (only convenient for Liberal activism during the Bush years, but fizzling out under Obama), today's party attempts to out-hawk Republicans at every turn.
"I'm looking at the Democratic establishment figures," Matthews introduced, "people I normally like. John Kerry, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton. You go down the list. They all supported the war in Iraq. Why were they hawks?" (Though we might ask, what do you mean, "were?"). "Why so many Democrats with a party that's not hawkish, why are so many of their leaders hawks?" Matthews reiterated.
In the segment, Matthews heaps rare praise on Tulsi for being "out there all alone tonight fighting against the neocons."
Chris Matthews: "Why are so many Democrat leaders war hawks?" Intelligent but all too rare question from MSM. So important to our country/world. Only had a minute to reply. Listen for yourself. #TULSI2020 pic.twitter.com/CXEW4Qdm3H— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) November 23, 2019
