Tulsi Gabbard’s Message to Jeff Bezos has Conservatives in Stitches

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has been resonating with Republicans quite a bit lately, and never more so than when she told off Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos after his flight into space.

You see, Gabbard, a former military, former House representative, still bawse, doesn’t pull any punches. And I don’t mean that lightly. Let’s revisit, for those of us who’ve forgotten, or maybe blocked it out due to fear, Gabbard is the fiery Democrat who mouthed off to Hillary Clinton (yes, that Hillary) and lived to tell about it!!

But wait, there’s more. Clinton made a less than tactful hint that she thought Gabbard was actually a Russian agent and the Hawaii native and former military member didn’t take it kindly. She is currently “suing Hillary von Pantsuit of the Cloth or Something for defamation,” as Louder with Crowder reported early last year.

The words “Tulsi is a Russian” made it pretty clear Tulsi was the object of Hillary’s comments and the ever-so brave Democrat (hey, I said that without puking!) Tulsi Gabbard filed the defamation suit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Jan of 2020.

This time the (shockingly still not suicided) Democrat took on literally the richest man in the world, thinking it might be a good idea to tick off someone with more money than most of us knew existed, and said that she was disappointed that Bezos returned to earth after his flight into space.

She kicked off her verbal diatribe against the kajillionare on Tuesday before Bezos took off, saying, “Bezos, please stay up there. Do the world a favor.” What exactly she had against Bezos is left to the imagination, but we don’t have to think hard to imagine what anyone, from any side of the political spectrum, might have against the bald billionaire.

She later added, “The only problem I have with Bezos’ Blue Origin space rocket ship into

Bezos made history when he and his brother Mark Bezos, 82-year-old Mercury 13 aerospace pioneer Wally Funk and 18-year-old Oliver Daemen and returned to earth before 10 a.m. Eastern Time.

The endeavor cost billions of dollars and Bezos was hotly criticized for not dealing with earth-based problems before taking on the seemingly pointless flight. During an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” he was questioned about that very issue and he took a conciliatory tone, seeming to agree with the criticism:

“Well, I say they’re largely right. We have to do both,” Bezos said. “We have lots of problems here and now on Earth and we need to work on those, and we always need to look to the future. We’ve always done that as a species, as a civilization. We have to do both.”

However, that didn’t stop a petition entitled “Do not allow Jeff Bezos to return to Earth” that was launched in early June on Change.org to pick up steam after Bezos announced his plans to travel to space. According to IJR, As of Tuesday afternoon, the petition acquired more than 165,000 signatures.

“For me, it started as a joke, because obviously there is no way we can keep Jeff Bezos from re-entering Earth,” Ric Geiger, the creator of the petition, said.

Bezos raked in more than his share of criticism during his after the launch press conference where he thanked his notoriously over-worked employees saying, “I also want to thank every Amazon employee and every Amazon customer, ‘cause you guys paid for all this.”
