The renowned Never Trump loser Erick Erickson struck again on the second night of debates.
Always a cheerleader for the political establishment, Erickson took a shot at Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard.
Gabbard made waves for her strong anti-war stances on debate night, when she got in a heated exchange with rival Tim Ryan on the issue of the Afghan War.
In that exchange, Gabbard made the case for non-interventionism and a complete pullout from Afghanistan.
This incident drew comparisons between Ron Paul’s and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s exchange during the 2007 presidential debates.
In Erickson’s critique of Gabbard, he not only called her out, but he also compared her to Ron Paul.
In his tweet, he specifically said, “Tulsi Gabbard strikes me as the Democrat equivalent of Ron Paul — an unserious candidate with unserious policies for unserious people who are super serious.”

Indeed, Gabbard’s domestic policies leave a lot to be desired. But on war issues, she shines.
And that ticks off the likes of Erick Erickson.
This is after all, someone who called the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson “reactionaries”.
It’s clear that Erickson hates any political figure that challenges the status quo in some shape or form.
For Erickson and his ilk, towing the party line and never rocking the boat should be standard operating procedure.
However, the American people have grown tired of the politics as usual mindset of The Swamp.
That obviously angers Erickson, who wants to revert back to the status quo of Swamp politics.
This is probably not the last we’ll hear of Erickson during the 2020 elections.
Expect more gatekeeping comments in the months to come.
