Uh…what?

The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 U.S. election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat who earlier this month declared her intention to run for president in 2020.

An NBC News analysis of the main English-language news sites employed by Russia in its 2016 election meddling shows Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who is set to make her formal announcement Saturday, has become a favorite of the sites Moscow used when it interfered in 2016.

Several experts who track websites and social media linked to the Kremlin have also seen what they believe may be the first stirrings of an upcoming Russian campaign of support for Gabbard.

Since Gabbard announced her intention to run on Jan. 11, there have been at least 20 Gabbard stories on three major Moscow-based English-language websites affiliated with or supportive of the Russian government: RT, the Russian-owned TV outlet; Sputnik News, a radio outlet; and Russia Insider, a blog that experts say closely follows the Kremlin line. The CIA has called RT and Sputnik part of “Russia’s state-run propaganda machine.”

As I pointed out earlier the Right Wing here in America has also come out to defend Gabbard from criticism coming at her from progressives. 

A Bernie Sanders supporter who is now being promoted by the conservatives and the Kremlin? 

Yeah, that’s a hard no from me.

    “(fun fact:
    Gabby’s “consultant” is also one of the seven secret Russian agents, including Maria Veselnitskaya, identified in and fighting the Magnitsky Act).”

    The Trump administration is now telling the courts that reuniting separated immigrant families is too difficult and a burden. It would take “too much effort.”

    Gee, they should have thought about that before they kidnapped their children.

    I hope the court slaps them and slaps them hard.

    Fuckers.

    It just seems that Teen Mom was what started the decline of civilization itself.
