During CNN Right Now Thursday, host Brianna Keilar and her panel analyzed the CNN Democratic debates. Keilar asked the panel to weigh in on Tulsi Gabbard, who "ripped into Senator Kamala Harris on her record as Attorney General in California." While panelist A.B. Stoddard admitted that Harris "should have been ready for that," she also complained that the moderators did not ask Gabbard about her "relationship with Assad." Stoddard proceeded to indulge a bizarre conspiracy theory that's "all over the internet" suggesting that "the Russian bots are helping Tulsi Gabbard in going after Kamala Harris and that Tulsi Gabbard refuses to condemn Assad because she's doing the work of the Russians and is going to run as a third-party spoiler and re-elect Trump."
