Rep. Tulsi Gabbard went on The View to talk about her 2020 presidential run and ended up spending her time on the show attacking host Joy Behar for calling her a "useful idiot."
Host Whoopi Goldberg tried to ask the Hawaii Democrat about impeachment on the Wednesday show before she cut off the host and trained her fire on Behar.
"Some of you have accused me of being a traitor to my country, a Russian asset, a Trojan horse, or a useful idiot," Gabbard, who was sitting next to Behar, said. Behar started to protest that she did not call her a "Russian asset" but admitted the congresswoman was a "useful" idiot for the Russians.
"I am a patriot. I love our country. I am a strong and intelligent woman of color, and I have dedicated almost my entire adult life to protecting the safety, the security, and the freedom of all Americans in this country," Gabbard said as the crowd applauded.
