Yes, I know, past leaders have similar sayings on their hate of the press, but still when something like this is said by politicians, the politician in question doesn't look good.

Politico

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a Democrat running for her party's 2020 presidential nomination, on Sunday called a Daily Beast report that her campaign is being backed by prominent Russian sympathizers "fake news."

Speaking to ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," the Hawaii congresswoman said, "You know, it’s unfortunate that you’re citing that article, George, because it’s a whole lot of fake news.

"What I am focused on is what is in the best interest of the American people, what is in the best interest of our national security, keeping the American people safe," Gabbard continued.

“Fake news” is a favorite phrase of President Donald Trump. In the last two months, he has tweeted it more than two dozen times.

The Daily Beast reported last week that Gabbard has received donations to her 2020 campaign from supporters of Russian President Vladimir Putin, including a Russian studies professor and an employee of the Russian government-funded broadcaster RT.

Gabbard has previously raised eyebrows for her refusal to call Syrian President Bashar Assad an adversary of the United States — a position seemingly more aligned with Russia's stance than that of the United States.

I know her approval is very low in the 2020 Democratic presidential race, but damn. It really shows that SOMEONE's influence is growing even in the opposite party.

Still, let the actual fact checkers (Politifact, Snopes) investigate.

As the saying goes, you gotta fight Russians with Russians.

Isn't it great to work with Russia? We are allies after all. Would it be great to get along with Russia?

Isn't that what Trump supporters say?

Politics: Today's reality TV show where everything is loosely based on an almost true story.

Don't blame yourself for hero worship. I always get a kick out of people that idolize politicians. You're like the other side of the coin of trumpsters. Keep living the dream, joe.
