A Facebook screenshot shows Tulsi’s brother explaining the Hawaii congresswoman’s endorsement of Biden for president by saying she offered the endorsement to Bernie Sanders first, but was refused by the 78-year-old Vermont senator. The screenshot shows a comment from Jai Gabbard’s Facebook account, confirmed as authentic.

“Thank you for your kind words sir. Bernie has treated my sister like sh*t all the way through this. She tried to endorse him again and he has refused her support. Whoever he’s getting his advice from has done a terrible job. You go ahead keep talking about however you want, but know this,” the comment continues. “She is just going to continue being independent and keep fighting for us. Bernie isn’t the man me and Tulsi once supported 100 percent. I don’t know what happened to him. He’s refused to take the fight to the establishment like Tulsi continues to do.”

I DON'T KNOW. I am looking for it. I wonder if this is even true, frankly. No one else seems to have reported on this.

I did search all the way back to December on Jai's FB page, but I am not a friend, so maybe I didn't see it all. You could send him the URL for this article and point blank ask him if it is true. He lives in Australia so there maybe a big time delay.

You asked for the screenshot; it is in the original article.

I am now more certain that it is sadly true which I cannot understand at all. She stepped down in 2016 from her DNC Vice Chair position to support Bernie and to challenge Wasserman Schultz.

This is very puzzling and confusing. It reminds me of what happened just before Bernie came out and endorsed Hillary which was just after Seth Rich (who I think was Guccifer) was murdered.

I have asked Jai Gabbard and Hawaii State Senator Mike Gabbard, her father, to confirm that this is true. They haven't yet responded, but I hope will soon. Can't reach the Press officer for her Congressional office over the weekend, but I might try that tomorrow, Saturday.

He's refused to take the fight to the establishment like Tulsi continues to do."

Continues to do? Are you kidding me?

She just endorsed Babbling Biden.

She can't get more establishment than that.

It would be nice to get confirmation from the source, but as a puzzle piece, this fits in very nicely with no competing puzzle pieces adding to the mystery.

Yes - this might explain why she did NOT endorse Sanders, but it doesn't explain why she DID endorse Biden.

Tulsi's video makes it clear that her heart is still with Bernie and Jane and Nina, but that the people had picked Biden, for which I still very much question the accuracy and integrity of that conclusion. I still await a response from her brother and her father, Hawaii State Senator Mike Gabbard.

There is the VP position to think about. Creepy Joe said he would choose a woman. I could not imagine anything other than a lopsided loss if Biden chooses Warren, Clinton, or any other republican in a donkey mask. But there is a long chance that creepy Joe will like the lei aroma and have Tulsi push his wheel chair for him. That could end well.

Exactly. I don't know what Bernie is doing. Why would he refuse her endorsement? If it is true, maybe Bernie has accepted a Cabinet position in Biden's administration.

Please delete this double post. I don't know how to do it.
