What’s the dispute between Hillary Clinton and Tulsi Gabbard about?

CLOSEWestlake Legal Group icon_close What's the dispute between Hillary Clinton and Tulsi Gabbard about?

Hillary Clinton on Thursday said President Donald Trump, the man who beat her in the 2016 election, posed a “clear and present danger” to the future of the country. Clinton was speaking at an event in Washington, DC. (Sept. 27) AP, AP

WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton kicked off a political firestorm last week after making comments about Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s presidential campaign on an Oct. 17 podcast.

Clinton’s comments were initially erroneously reported as her saying Russians appeared to be “grooming” Gabbard, D-Hawaii, as a potential third-party presidential candidate. Clinton had actually suggested that it was the Republicans who were “grooming” Gabbard. 

Clinton had been speaking on Democratic strategist David Plouffe’s podcast in a wide-ranging interview about President Donald Trump, impeachment, and the state of the 2020 Democratic primary. 

Several outlets picked up on the story, prompting a response from Gabbard on Twitter and elevating Gabbard to the forefront of a news cycle. 

The problem is, however, that much of the controversy comes from a misquote of Clinton’s remarks.

Clinton’s comments in context

Excerpts of Clinton’s remarks started to go viral after the release of Plouffe’s podcast, but it is important to put them in context since some of the initial reporting missed some crucial context around Clinton’s remarks.

In the podcast, Clinton had talked about how “they’ve got their eye on somebody” in the Democratic primary and are “grooming her,” followed by how “she’s the favorite of the Russians.” Out of context, it would appear that Clinton was referring to Russians “grooming” a candidate.

They’re also going to do third party. I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians, they have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset, I mean totally. They know they can’t win without a third party candidate.  

However, in the section of the podcast before those remarks, Clinton had been discussing the Republican Party’s attempts to defeat Democratic presidential candidates and her concerns that a third-party candidate would take away votes in close races from a Democratic candidate, as some Democrats believe Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green party candidate Jill Stein did in 2016. 

Gabbard responds to Clinton

On Oct. 18, as Clinton’s misreported comments started to pick up traction, and several news outlets published stories on her remarks, Gabbard shot back on Twitter, calling Clinton the “queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long.” 

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang defended Gabbard, saying she “deserves more respect and thanks than this.” 

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt, a Democratic presidential candidate, also defended Gabbard, tweeting that “it is outrageous for anyone to suggest that Tulsi is a foreign asset.”

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., responded to Gabbard’s tweet with a meme of his face from the first Democratic presidential debate. 

Corrections

About a week after the initial controversy, several news outlets corrected the reporting of Clinton’s remarks, including the version from the Associated Press used by USA TODAY. 

Merrill highlighted The New York Times’ correction and slammed the coverage of Clinton’s remarks. 

“I too am tired of talking about this, but let’s again set the record straight,” Merrill wrote on Twitter, using HRC to refer to Clinton. “HRC speculated that the only way the GOP is going to win in states where Trump can’t hit a 50% majority is to 1) Suppress the vote, as they do widely and routinely, & 2) Bank on the 3rd party spoiler.”

Merrill added that media reports showed Russian propaganda and disinformation networks being used to bolster Gabbard’s candidacy. 

Gabbard, however, has continued her criticism of Clinton and has used it as a way to rally her supporters. 

In an Oct. 23 tweet, Gabbard told Clinton to “acknowledge the damage you have caused and step down from your throne.” Gabbard tweeted that quote along with a link to a website for supporters to add their names to a list criticizing Clinton.

Baker Mayfield has no regrets over penalty for ref criticism: ‘They fine you for some ridiculous things’

Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has no regrets over the fine he received for criticizing officials following the team’s Week 6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Mayfield was fined $12,500 for saying the referees were “pretty bad.” But if that’s what it takes to point out the woeful officiating, Mayfield said he was fine with that.

“Well, one, I wouldn’t say it’s complaining when it’s blatantly obvious,” the second-year quarterback said Wednesday, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “I’d say that’s just stating facts. Freedom of speech I thought, but that’s OK, I get fined for it. It’s the league, that’s what they do. They fine you for some ridiculous things. That’s just how it is. There’s a reason that everybody is talking about it.”

He added: “It goes for every team. We’re not going to get a lot of calls, and we know that, especially going into this week. There’s no time to worry about it. No time to stress about it. Just play our game.”

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES’ FLETCHER COX GRABS SHOTGUN TO DEFEND HOME FROM GIRLFRIEND’S EX: REPORT

As Mayfield and the Browns prepare to take on the New England Patriots, the NFL sent a memo to all 32 teams reminding them that the league prohibits criticism of officiating, including posts on social media.

Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian told the Associated Press the league’s loss of top referees such as Mike Pereira, Dean Blandino, John Parry, Terry McAulay and Gene Steratore has hurt the officiating.

“There is no question about that, none whatsoever,” Polian said. “I mean, you’re talking about this year alone, Terry McAulay, John Parry, Gene Steratore, I mean, they’d be in the top five in any given year that they worked. And they’re referees on top of that, so they know all the rules, they know all the interpretations; they understand what goes on at virtually every position. And then Ed Hochuli’s retirement, you lose him and the three others, that’s four of your top five referees by anybody’s standard.”

He added that their departures mean there are less-experienced referees trying to navigate players’ egos along with an ever-changing rulebook.

Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton to attend Elijah Cummings’ Baltimore funeral

Westlake Legal Group 49c85ca2-ab85-4645-8643-b34c16326714-AP_Cummings_Black_Church Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton to attend Elijah Cummings' Baltimore funeral

Former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, along with former first lady Michelle Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will attend Rep. Elijah Cummings’ funeral in Baltimore on Friday as the nation bids farewell to the Maryland Democrat who served on Capitol Hill 23 years. 

Spokeswoman Katie Hill confirmed that Obama would attend in a tweet Wednesday night. She said Cummings’ widow, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, asked Obama to “deliver remarks about the remarkable life and legacy of one of this country’s finest public servants.”

Cummings, 68,  died last week of complications related to longstanding health issues. He had previously been treated for heart and knee issues, according to The Associated Press and had cancer, The Baltimore Sun reported

“Michelle and I are heartbroken over the passing of our friend, Elijah Cummings,” Obama said in a statement after the congressman’s death. “As Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, he showed us all not only the importance of checks and balances within our democracy, but also the necessity of good people stewarding it.” 

Cummings was a personal friend of Obama’s and was an early supporter of his 2008 presidential run.

The funeral will be held at the New Psalmist Baptist Church, where Cummings worshiped for nearly 40 years. 

In addition to Obama and Hillary Clinton, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and former Rep. Kweisi Mfume will join Rockeymoore Cummings, Cummings’ brother and his daughters as speakers at the funeral, according to Reuters and The Washington Post.

Cummings won Mfume’s House seat in a special election in 1996 after Mfume left Congress to become president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. 

Last week, Bill Clinton said Cummings “was a resounding voice of moral courage who fought the good fights for the people of Baltimore.” 

Hillary Clinton said Cummings was “a man of principle who championed truth, justice and kindness. He fiercely loved his country and the people he served.” 

The former House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol on Thursday. On Wednesday, mourners paid respects to Cummings as his body lay in repose at Morgan State University, a historically black college in Cummings’ district. Cummings served on the school’s Board of Regents for 19 years.

Jenna Dewan Recalls The Moment She Knew She Had To Split With Channing Tatum

Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum shocked many last year when they announced their decision to split after nearly nine years of marriage.

But before that, there came a moment in their relationship when Dewan said she just knew that things weren’t right.

“I’d come to realize the dynamic I was in wasn’t serving me nor was it serving my daughter,” Dewan, a dancer and actor, wrote in her new book, “Gracefully You: Finding Beauty and Balance in the Everyday,” according to People

“First and foremost I had to accept the realization this isn’t working and had moved into hurting,” Dewan said. 

Dewan and Tatum kept their separation secret for a while, though it involved Dewan having to answer media questions about her then-estranged husband while she filmed the second season of the “World of Dance.” She later filed for divorce.

“In the beginning of my separation, it felt as though I were in a dark closet, desperately trying to find the light or the way out,” she wrote. “I was in a state of shock. One week I’d be doing really well and the next I was slammed with a whole new slew of emotions.”

Things got even tougher when Dewan discovered that Tatum was dating singer Jessie J ― something she said she found out about online

“I was learning things about my ex most people wouldn’t have to face ― and over the internet, as it was happening,” Dewan wrote. “There I was, on a plane, alone, finding out about his new relationship. I felt blindsided. Choosing grace as I learned everything about my personal situation along with the rest of the world was really difficult.” 

Tatum and Jessie J are still dating. Dewan has found love again with her Broadway star boyfriend, Steve Kazee.

Dewan and Kazee recently announced that they’re expecting their first child together after more than a year of dating. This will be Kazee’s first. Dewan shares a 6-year-old daughter with Tatum.

Electric Ford ‘Mustang’ SUV teaser sketch released ahead of Nov. 17 reveal

Ford’s electric future officially begins on November 17.

That’s when it will unveil its “Mustang-inspired” performance SUV, the first of several full-electric vehicles it plans to introduce in the coming years, including a battery-powered F-150 pickup.

With the announcement, Ford released a line drawing of the profile of the vehicle, which features headlights and taillights that are reminiscent of the ones on the current Mustang, plus with a rakish roofline and bulging rear fenders.

The image meshes with a previous rendering showing the back of the vehicle. Technical details and its name are still closely-kept secrets, but Ford filed a trademark for the name “Mustang Mach E” earlier this year.

FORD’S ELECTRIC VEHICLES WILL BE AWESOME … FORD EXECUTIVE SAYS

Ford’s website dedicated to electric cars says an available configuration will have a range of at least 300 miles per charge, but doesn’t specify which. However, a since-deleted mention in a press release from its charging network partner, Electrify America, said that the number applies to a rear-wheel-drive model with an “extended battery pack,” suggesting a model with a lower range and price will also be offered.

Some of the folks in the industry didn’t think a woman should be running a car business and gave her a hard time about it, but she’s the one who showed them how it’s done.

Back then, the Colorado Ford dealers were offering a special edition Ski Country Mustang, and Goodro outsold them all, according to Mustang historian Kevin Marti. Then she turned things up a notch.

Playing off the name of the car, Goodro created her own line of She Country Mustangs, by ordering 48 cars finished in the “feminine” special order colors of Limelite Green, Bermuda Sand, Evening Orchard, and Autumn Smoke and then adding a personalized plate with the customer’s name on the dashboard. That’s about all that was different from the standard ‘Stangs, but it worked. The cars were both a sales and marketing success for the store.

Her legacy lives on in the surviving She Country cars, however, and one is coming up for sale at the Mecum Auctions event in Chicago on Oct 26. It’s an unrestored example of one of the dozen Evening Orchard cars that were produced. The notchback coupe features a landau top, air conditioning automatic transmission and its original 390 cubic-inch big-block V8 with just 42,000 miles on it.

It shows a little wear and tear and corrosion and is missing the nameplate, but is in very good condition and still has the Goodro Ford sticker on the rear bumper. A typical Mustang in a similar configuration might be worth $30,000 to $50,000, but its rarity should add a certain cache as it rolls across the block in Chicago.

Tucker Carlson: Who is going to beat Trump? Some Dems are starting to think it could be Hillary Clinton

For about 10 minutes after her general election defeat three years ago, Hillary Clinton appeared to retreat into contemplative seclusion.

She wandered around the woods near her home in Chappaqua, N.Y. looking a little lost. Now, some people made fun of her for doing that, but in fact, it was a promising start. Humiliation can be the beginning of wisdom — as those of us who’ve been fired in public can tell you.

But the period didn’t last long. Before long, Hillary was back on the road — for years — like the circus. So many cities, so many excuses.

KAYLEIGH MCENANY: TRUMP CAMPAIGN’S MESSAGE TO HILLARY CLINTON IS ‘PLEASE’ RUN IN 2020

Hillary Clinton: The Russians — I say WikiLeaks, same thing — dumped the John Podesta emails.

I have my complaints about former [FBI] director [Jim] Comey.

The use of my email account was turned into, you know, the biggest scandal since Lord knows when. They covered it like it was Pearl Harbor.

If you look at Facebook, the vast majority of the news — news items — posted were fake.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

There’s all these stories about, you know, guys over in Macedonia who are running these fake news sites.

I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party.

I also think I was the victim of a very broad assumption [that] I was going to win.

You know, if the election had been on October 27, I’d be your president. And it wasn’t; it was on October 28, and there was just a lot of funny business going on around that.

Despite what you may have heard, Hillary Clinton didn’t really lose the 2016 election at all. She won it. She is the real president right now. This is her re-election campaign.

The Russians, Facebook, WikiLeaks, Jim Comey, the Macedonians, the Democratic Party itself … Hillary Clinton blamed them all. This was not someone coming to terms with a loss. It was someone refusing to admit one. And in fact, over time, that became Hillary’s de facto position on the whole thing.

Despite what you may have heard, she didn’t really lose the 2016 election at all. She won it. She is the real president right now! This is her re-election campaign.

So, as recently as a few months ago, even her fellow Democrats would have laughed, privately, at that idea. They would have mocked it as delusional. Not anymore.

More from Opinion

Now, some of them are taking Hillary more seriously than they have in a long time. An article in Tuesday’s New York Times describes growing panic among Democratic donors. Joe Biden suddenly looks weak and incapable. Much of the rest of the field clearly is too extreme to win a national election.

So, who is going to beat Donald Trump next year? Some in the party are starting to think it could be Hillary Clinton. And clearly this is a thought that has crossed Hillary Clinton’s mind. In private, she has expressed her willingness to enter the race. As if to prove it, her personal website just added a policy section.

That doesn’t mean she’s running. But suddenly, it’s clear that she very well could run.
