Tulsi Gabbard, the former Democratic presidential candidate and congresswoman from Hawaii, has issued a scathing response to Joe Biden’s recent remarks about Americans.
While delivering a speech at Morehouse College, which is where Martin Luther King Jr. attended school, Biden suggested that Republicans who are working to implement voter ID and election integrity laws are “domestic enemies.”
Going a step further, Biden even compared current political opponents to those who opposed the effort to end slavery and discrimination.
“Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace?” Biden asked. “Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor?”
“Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide, to defend our elections, to defend our democracy,” Biden claimed.
Fellow Gabbard shot back at Biden, “Hillary’s calling tens of millions of Americans deplorables was divisive & disgusting.”
“But Biden has gone further, calling those who disagree with his actions & policies domestic enemies, traitors, and racists. Biden promised to unite us, but he is doing all he can do divide us,” she added.

More from Townhall:
Last week, Gabbard took to Twitter to call out the Biden administration for not invoking the Defense Production Act to make Pfizer’s newly-developed COVID-19-fighting oral drug, Paxlovid, available to more Americans.
“You may have seen in the news recently that there was a new drug that was approved to treat covid. It’s a life-saving therapeutic called Paxlovid made by Pfizer and it has the potential to save thousands of people’s lives,” Gabbard said in a video.
(1/3) There is a life-saving therapeutic called Paxlovid (Pfizer) that can save thousands of lives, yet the White House refuses to invoke the Defense Production Act to make sure it is available to all Americans now—not 3 months from now. They either don’t care or are inept. … pic.twitter.com/FEru1IX7ck

”Unfortunately, there is an extremely limited amount of this drug available to people, and yet the White House refuses to invoke the Defense Production Act to make sure that it is mass produced and available to all Americans right now,” Gabbard added. “The only conclusion that I can draw from this is they either don’t care or they’re completely inept. This is the same thing that we’re seeing all over again just like we saw with the testing debacle. But it is an incredible tragedy because so many people are suffering and dying simply because our leaders and bureaucrats continue to fail them. They continue to fail the American people.”
