We knew it was coming: Tulsi Gabbard has left the Democratic Party —and she didn’t go quietly. Gabbard attacked the Dems in a nearly 30-minute YouTube video —but stopped shy of announcing plans to join the Republican Party or adopt any other political affiliation.

“I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is now under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue & stoke anti-white racism,” Gabbard said in an excerpt posted to Twitter.

“I believe in a government that is of the people, by the people and for the people. Unfortunately, today’s Democratic Party does not. Instead, it stands for a government that is of, by and for the powerful elite,” she continued. “I’m calling on my fellow common sense, independent-minded Democrats to join me in leaving the Democratic Party.”

Gabbard’s announcement served as the inaugural episode of the Tusli Gabbard Show, a podcast she is now running.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich praised Gabbard for ditching the Dems, calling her an “independent maverick.”

[Gabbard] has always been sort of an independent maverick,” Gingrich said. “And I think when she ran for president, she realized how really isolated she was from the great majority of the Democratic Party, which is now, frankly, a pretty weird party….I think you’re seeing this drift. And we’ve certainly seen among Latinos a huge drift towards the Republican Party as they’re driven away by the weirder policies of the Democratic Party.”
