Former Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Monday on “The Joe Rogan Experience” that things soured with the Democratic Party after she schooled Vice President Kamala Harris on the presidential debate stage in 2019.

Gabbard tore into Harris’ criminal justice record during the July 2019 Democratic primary debate, questioning, among other things, Harris’ role in putting “over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations” and allegedly keeping “people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California.”

Joe Rogan said things between Gabbard and her party “sort of soured … when during the debates when you accurately pointed out her record.”

“You basically sank any hope that she had of being president because you opened up this discussion that many people were not aware of about her prosecution record, the things that she’s done that are absolutely illegal,” Rogan said. “Like forcing people to work as labor, as cheap labor for the state to fight wildfires after they were supposed to be released, they did their time.”

“Exactly,” Gabbard said. “They did their time and she kept them in prison to use them essentially as slave labor for the state, putting their own lives at risk, forcibly.” (RELATED:’Elitist Cabal’: Tulsi Gabbard Announces She’s Leaving The Democratic Party)

Gabbard said all of the things she brought up on the debate stage with Harris were easily searchable.

“So then the question is hey, why didn’t anybody in the media ask her these questions about the record she said ‘I’m so proud of my record as this and as that,'” Gabbard said. “Alright, cool, talk about this, this is your record, talk about these things. No one in the media did that. There’s no other candidate on the debate stage who had the balls to bring that up.”

Gabbard then said the media and fellow democratic candidates lacked the courage to ask “a very factual” question about Harris’ record. Gabbard speculated the reason Harris was never pressed on these things prior to Gabbard’s takedown was because Harris had friends in “high places” and no one wanted to look racist questioning a woman of color.

Gabbard said things “started to take a turn” when the Democratic Party realized they could not be a “puppet master” and control what she said.
