‘Hillary’s Gone Crazy’: Trump Swipes Clinton For Slinging ‘Russian Asset’ Accusations

President Trump took on Hillary Clinton in a tweet late on Saturday evening where he claimed she’s “gone crazy.”

The president said his 2016 Democratic presidential rival was hurling accusations that Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is “a Russian favorite.” This is a similar accusation Clinton made of 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.

“So now Crooked Hillary is at it again! She is calling Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard ‘a Russian favorite,’ and Jill Stein ‘a Russian asset,'” he tweeted Saturday night. “As you may have heard, I was called a big Russia lover also (actually, I do like Russian people. I like all people!). Hillary’s gone Crazy!”

As the Washington Examiner reports, Trump’s tweet came after Clinton told the Campaign HQ podcast that Russia was grooming Gabbard for the 2020 election.

“They are also going to do third party again,” Clinton said. “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate.”

“She is a favorite of the Russians,” the twice-failed presidential candidate claimed, referring to Gabbard without mentioning the Hawaii representative by name. “They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset.”

Gabbard, currently a Hawaiian Congresswoman and a member of the Army National Guard, fired back at Clinton in a series of tweets on Friday afternoon.

“Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain,” Gabbard said in a tweet on Friday afternoon.

“From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why,” the Hawaiian congresswoman continued. “Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.”

“It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly,” Gabbard challenged.
