    I thought she was a rising star in the Democratic Party. Why the hell would she want to play footsie with Trump?

    Because sometimes policy is more important than party allegiance

    I agree, Tulsi Gabbard would be an excellent choice.

    Well, according to reactionary Twitter posts, she's a Putin apologist, pro-Sissi and pro-autocrat. Now I see the attraction to her from Trump.

    Trump should offer her a serious position like SecDef.

    That mentioning her name has neocon swine like Bill Kristol fulminating makes her an even more attractive choice for Defense.

    I don't know much about her, but it would be nice to see trump try to be bipartisan.

    SECDEF soon to be renamed SECWAR belongs to Mattis the Warrior Monk! She can find another cabinet level position. We are so close to both of my two picks being chosen. Mattis for SECWAR and Milo for Press Secretary.

    ETA: Huh she's a white nationalist too?

    I guess some people can be objective and work with others. Too bad you're stubborn prejudice gets into your way.

    Big blowup w/ DWS.. Gabbard called her out back before the debates in the fall of 2015, saying they suppressed the Dem field... DWS said "don't make it all about you"... Gabbard resigned her vice-chair post and supported Bernie...

    Huge respect for her from back during the DNC fiasco. Would love to see her have a more active role in our government!

    I was just reading about that feud between her and DWS.

    I have nothing but respect for her.

    Agreed. She is a promising official, independently of party affiliation

    Considering Trump's promises if she gets a role at the UN she will be a focal point of our diplomacy

    Interestingly she was mentioned at the end of a video I was re-watching from April.
    They mention one of the reasons Trump might like here.

    I've just finished reading some articles dealing with her political views.
    She is great!

    Her politics are pretty good but promoting her out of her depth isn't good either. She's young and smart and I'm sure she'd make it work but it just seems to early

    I would take her over Clinton and Trump any day.

    This was the statement she made regarding her meeting with Trump.

    Milo already said that if he's given the job he will do Friday conferences in drag.
