Maher to Gabbard: Other Democrats Playing to the "Twitterati," You Don't Care What People Say About You


Bill Maher interviews 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) about her debate performance and not bowing to political pressure.

BILL MAHER: If I was just a passing viewer who was like checking over the field, shopping, my first look at a lot of these people, I would have thought that the Democrats really, really, really, really, really care about illegal immigrants. They also care somewhat about health care and energy and the environment, but mostly about how they affect illegal immigrants. At one point they were asked to raise their hand if they think that illegal immigrants should get free health care and they all raised their hand. ...

The people on the stage, they seemed to be playing to the Twitterati, that 2 percent. The one thing I like about you is, having been to war, I feel like your attitude about the Twitter people ie like, 'I've been to war, so like I could give a shit what you people say about me."

GABBARD: Pretty much. It's true. This really is about leadership or the lack thereof. We have too many politicians who put their finger up to the Twitter wind and see which way it's blowing and then respond or change their position or whatever the case may be rather than actually leading.
