Fox News: Tulsi Gabbard has dropped out of the Democratic race, she hasn't actually dropped out yet

Fox News on Tuesday reported that Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard had “dropped out” of the race — but the network later corrected the report.

During a segment about impeachment, Fox News host Heather Childers said that Gabbard had quit the race.

“We do have Tulsi Gabbard, who has now dropped out of the Democratic race,” Childress announced before noting that Gabbard had spoken out against impeachment.

Several minutes later, Childers came back with a correction.

“And just to clarify, she hasn’t actually dropped out yet,” the Fox News host revealed.

Democrats should have expelled her.

6. I hope she does.

 

She'll take more votes away from Trump than she will from any Democratic candidate because she'll be on Fox News everyday.

11. I don't think there is a mechanism for actually expelling someone from a

 

political party. All you have to do to be a Democrat under our system is to register as one.

in the Democratic primaries. Look at Bernie.

19. I think that's right. The Democratic Party is not really a membership organization, in my opinion.

 

It's not like, for instance, the British Labor Party, which I believe actually has membership which I imagine includes membership dues, etc. Some (according to Wikipedia, 20) US states don't even have partisan voter registration. Lyndon LaRouche was a regular Democratic candidate, albeit the DNC did not allow him to have delegates at the 1996 Democratic convention. Rather than membership organizations, party "membership" generally seems defined by voter registration (where applicable) or self-identification. In the case of candidates, I don't know of cases where a party can bar a candidate from using a certain party identification.

3. What she was probably thinking was,

 

"Everyone on the planet seems to realize that Tulsi Gabbard should drop out--except for Tulsi Gabbard herself."

4. Somewhat ironically I currently have a huge banner ad at the top of the page

 

for Tulsi 2020.

And that's not uncommon when I visit here. Boy are they targeting the wrong person.

7. So tired of "biting my lip" and clinching my posting fingers when she is mentioned...

 

If (yes, I said "IF" ) she is actually planning to stab Dems in the back with a third party run, then she should at least be honest enough to do it openly. Of course demonizing Democrats on Fox News doesn't have quite the same impact if she's no longer a Democrat.

And if she is not engaged in any malign behavior or schemes, then she really needs to explain herself to supporters of the party in which she claims to belong. I, for one, WOULD listen--albeit skeptically.

14. I doubt if she will run 3rd Party.

 

Gabbard did precious little campaigning in her run. She's no Nader.

Sure as hell she has the Kooch slot tied up at Fax - the 'radical left' Dem who can be relied on to knife the Party.

They can't actually CORRECT themselves over at FauxNews. They call it "clarifying".

I really despise people who can't admit they made a mistake.

13. Next Fox News will announce she's joining them as a talking head

 

She dropped out from seeking reelection to her congressional seat some time back, which can be confusing for Fox News types to understand the difference.
