Tulsi Gabbard attacked for 9/11 comments when asked about equal pay in Democratic debate

Tulsi Gabbard faced swift backlash during the first Democratic Party debate after using a question about closing the gender wage gap to talk about her military service. A Hawaii Democrat who has consistently polled at nearly one percent in national surveys shared a personal story about how she enrolled in the US military after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the Twin Towers, sparking controversy from critics who said she was “cheapening” her military career by immediately pivoting. “I enlisted in the Army National Guard after the Al-Qaeda terror attacks on 9/11, so I could go after those who attacked us on that day,” she added. “I still serve as a major. Served over 16 years. Deployed twice to the Middle East.”

  • We are in Afghanistan & Iraq where we have lost so many lives and spent so much $ that should be going into our communities here at home. This is why it’s so important to have a commander in chief who knows the cost of war. #TULSI2020 #DemDebate #Democrat http://tulsi.to/Bring-Our-Troops-Home …
