Meghan McCain called Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard an “Assad apologist” during a Wednesday appearance on “The View.” 
Gabbard has long faced criticism over her stance toward Assad. 
Gabbard said “there’s no disputing the fact” that Assad is “brutal dictator” who “has used chemical weapons” against his people, but she would not call him an “enemy” of the US. 

Since Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard declared she’s running for president in 2020, she’s been hammered in interviews over her controversial interactions with and statements on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Gabbard’s Wednesday appearance on ABC’s “The View” was no exception to the trend as the Hawaii Democrat got into a heated debate with host Meghan McCain. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
