Tulsi Gabbard took sharp aim at Joe Biden on Tuesday while giving a frank, critical assessment of his presidency.
The former Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii joined Fox News’ “The Five” panel discussion on Wednesday, where she ripped Biden’s presidency as the worst — surpassing even the disastrous term of Jimmy Carter in the late 1970s.
“First of all stop thinking about yourself and actually think about getting things done for the American people. I think that the first problem is that they’re concerned about how they look,” Gabbard said.
“Second of all, I think they’ve got it completely wrong,” she continued.
“Biden will be remembered as being worse than Jimmy Carter because they’re talking about gas prices and inflation and how things were bad then and now, but they’re ignoring the fact that Carter’s policies didn’t fast-track us into a new Cold War or push us into a place where we’re closer to a nuclear war now than since the Cuban missile crisis,” she added.
Gabbard noted that there were other things the former Democratic president from Georgia did not do that Biden has done.
“Carter didn’t denounce and reject half the country as domestic terrorists. Carter didn’t sic the Department of Justice on parents who are trying to fight for their children’s education and the list goes on and on,” the former lawmaker said.
“I really wish the president of the United States and the White House would really focus on actually doing the work for the American people rather than thinking about perceptions or politics or elections or all these other things,” Gabbard added.
On Twitter she noted: “Our freedoms are being threatened not by some foreign country but from people who took an oath of office to support and defend our Constitution.
“They are acting as domestic enemies of the people and our country because they are seeking to take our freedoms away,” she continued. “Our freedom is under attack by those who care more for power than for the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the American people.
“They seek to divide and conquer, to weaken, censor and disarm us, to pit us one against the other, using identity politics to foment fear and hatred,” Gabbard continued.

Wednesday’s remarks were not the first time Gabbard, an Army Reserve officer, has been critical of the current administration.
In March, for instance, she blasted Biden’s Supreme Court pick, then-Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, for refusing to define a woman during her confirmation hearing.
When Jackson was asked by Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) if she could tell her the definition of a “woman,” Jackson responded that should could not because “I’m not a biologist.”
“In order to have a Supreme Court committed to protecting the rights of all Americans, including women, every justice needs to understand there is such a thing as a woman, as distinct from a man,” Gabbard noted on Twitter at the time. “Yet when asked to define the word ‘woman,’ Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson said, ‘I don’t know.’”
“The hypocrisy and absurdity of this is that she was nominated by President Biden in large part because she is a woman,” Gabbard noted further.
