Tulsi Gabbard defended her 2020 endorsement of Joe Biden for President when questioned by a conservative, citing her relationship with the Biden family as a reason for her support and pleading ignorance to his radical agenda, which she supported throughout her career. Video footage of the exchange has been exclusively obtained by National File.
The Fall Briefing With Tulsi Gabbard, hosted by the Minnesota-based Center of the American Experiment, a free-market think-tank, took place on October 15th, just days after Gabbard announced her departure from the Democrat Party. When Gabbard was asked by an audience member why she backed Joe Biden in 2020 as opposed to President Trump, she defended her endorsement and pled ignorance of Biden’s far-left agenda.
One of the “reasons that conservatives are still skeptical of you and of this move is because you endorsed Joe Biden in 2020,” a man in the audience said to Gabbard when it was his turn to have to mic.
“What is it that you know about Joe Biden now that you didn’t know then?” he asked, to cheers from his fellow audience members. “Why were you willing to endorse him and not support President Trump?”
“I’ve – I’ve known Joe Biden for a long time,” Gabbard said. “Gotten to know his family.”
“The Joe Biden that I knew is nothing like the Joe Biden we’ve seen in the White House,” Gabbard went on in responding. “I endorsed him in the hopes that he would carry out his promises and that he would listen to his better angels in the face of the permanent Washington establishment,” she said of Biden, who’s been in Washington for 50 years.
“But he’s failed to do that,” Gabbard said. “In every aspect. His promises to unite a divided country turned out to be hollow and empty promises.”
After calling Biden’s recent speech in Philadelphia, where he declared millions of Americans to be military enemies of the state “divisive,” Tulsi Gabbard told the audience that she is “sickened and disheartened” by the administration of the man she endorsed in 2020.

The questioning of Gabbard’s support for Joe Biden came as countless conservatives have voiced their concern over her embrace by the GOP establishment and their online influencer class.
In 2019, she wouldn’t stand up to what she admitted at the time was a hyper-partisan anti-Trump impeachment movement, being the only member of Congress to vote “present” on the matter of removing a sitting President from office.
In 2020, when she sought the Democrat nomination to run against President Trump, she backed radical open-borders and reparations policies and eventually dropped out, endorsing Joe Biden.
While Gabbard claimed in her response to the audience member at the “Fall Briefing” that she knew a far different Joe Biden than currently sits in the White House, she was first elected to Congress in 2012, when Biden was Vice President to the most radically left-wing administration in U.S. history up until that point.
The left-wing record Biden helped establish under the Obama Administration has only to been outdone by his own administration.
Much of the far-left agenda that Biden has championed in Washington has also been supported by Gabbard, making her the subject of a widely distributed meme referencing her voting record, and encouraging conservatives to approach with caution.
Tulsi Gabbard has also attended World Economic Forum summits alongside David de Rothschild, Mark Zuckerberg, and Dan Crenshaw. Amazingly, information on Gabbard and her time with the World Economic Forum appears to have been removed from the globalist group’s website.
