Tulsi Gabbard Calls GOP Sen. Wicker ‘Insane, Sociopath’ For Suggesting Nuclear War With Russia

On Wednesday, former Hawaii Democratic Congresswoman and 2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard slammed Republican Sen. Roger Wicker for suggesting the U.S. could use nuclear weapons against Russia if the country tried to invade Ukraine.

Gabbard made her comments during an interview on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Wicker: ‘We don’t rule out first-use nuclear action’

Fox News reported, “Sen. Wicker made the startling comment during an on-air interview where he was asked about the escalating situation abroad. Wicker, who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said that he is ruling nothing out as a potential response to defend Ukraine’s sovereignty against Russia and its leader, President Vladimir Putin.”

“I would not rule out American troops on the ground,” Wicker said, adding, that “We don’t rule out first-use nuclear action.”

Gabbard told Carlson on Wednesday, “Anyone who would propose or even consider what he is saying as an option, must be insane, a sociopath, or a sadist.”

“Let’s go and launch a nuclear attack that would start a war that would destroy the American people, our country and the world and oh, also, the Ukrainians so that we can save Ukraine’s democracy?” Gabbard said.

She added, “I mean, it literally is insane.”

“And the crazy thing is, Senator Wicker is not an outlier,” Gabbard explained. “You are hearing the same kind of rhetoric coming from Democrats and Republicans in Congress and the administration and in the media no problem with this because they actually agree with this.”

“They are pushing this same narrative themselves,” Gabbard insisted.

Gabbard: ‘The same neocons and neo libs in Washington who dragged our country into regime change wars’

A potential nuclear war with Russia “would destroy the world as we know it,” Gabbard continued.

“We are being pushed closer and closer to a hot war, a nuclear war” by “the same neocons and neo libs in Washington who dragged our country into regime change wars in places like Iraq and Libya and Syria,” Gabbard said.

“There are consequences to leaders in our country, influential people in our country to throwing things out like a first use nuclear attack is on the table,” Gabbard observed. “This directly undermines our national security, and it directly puts the American people and our country and the world at risk.”
