Given our insane news cycle, you may have forgotten seven days ago when Tulsi Gabbard noticed she wasn't getting any attention and mopped her brow and "gave up" being a "Democrat."

The next day she began stumping for the Trump-aligned GOP Senate candidate in New Hampshire Don Bolduc.

And today, she's calling Joe Biden, Hitler. Because she's no longer a "Democrat," get it? The Daily Beast reports:

Speaking at a Bolduc town hall event in a town outside of Manchester on Sunday, the former Hawaii congresswoman and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate stipulated that she’s “pretty sure” both Biden and Hitler share a “mindset” of good intentions to justify authoritarian behavior, according to audio obtained by The Daily Beast.

“And this is something that is, you know, throughout history, we look at authoritarian leaders and dictators in other countries,” Gabbard said in a tangent about Biden’s Philadelphia speech from September on anti-democratic extremism among “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans.”

“I'm pretty sure they all believe they’re doing what’s best,” Gabbard continued. “Even Hitler thought he was doing what was best for Germany, right? For the German race. In his own mind, he found a way to justify the means to meet his end. So when we have people with that mindset, well, you know we’ve got to do whatever it takes because, as President Biden said in that speech in Philadelphia, that those who supported Trump, those who didn't vote for him are extremists and a threat to our democracy.”

If there's one thing we as Democrats could do to make lemonade out of this Hawaiian lemon, it's to require all presidential candidates to release ten years of tax returns to the public before they're allowed to grace a Democratic debate stage. At best, Tulsi wouldn't have the profile she does now. But even if she had taken that bait, we would now know how much of Tulsi Gabbard's income is paid in rubles.
