Barrett, who is an author journalist and radio host in Madison, Wisconsin told Press TV in an interview on Saturday that in the United States the Democratic Party had traditionally represented the working class and the Republican Party the rich billionaires.
However, with the arrival of the Clinton duo at the helm of US politics that has changed.
“After the Clinton family got hold of the Democratic Party in the 1990s, it became the other party of the billionaires,” Barrett said.
“A lot of Americans, and working class Americans in particular, sort of sensed that, and it came to a head during the Obama administration when they realized that the big wigs in the Democratic party are actually representing billionaires, and not them,” he added.
Barrett said this change disillusioned many working class Americans with the Democratic Party.
He attributed the US wars and conflicts throughout the Middle East and North Africa to Hillary Clinton, saying her role initiating the wars and conflicts “have cast her as an evil witch, almost out of a Disney movie.”
Barrett said given the negative image and bad influence of the Clinton family, it might be time that the Americans wanted to put them aside and the best person for this task was US Congresswoman from Hawaii and Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard.
Gabbard fought back after Hillary Clinton appeared to call her “the favorite of the Russians” by describing her as “the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long.”
Media reports say the former senator, secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate has accused Gabbard campaign of receiving Russian aid.
“I think Tulsi Gabbard is absolutely right in going after her … and she should continue to beat up on Hillary Clinton,” Barrett concluded.
