Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, who met with President Bashar al-Assad when she visited Syria, is being labeled an apologist for saying she’s ‘skeptical’ he committed last week’s sarin atrocity.

‘There are a number of theories out there,’ Gabbard said. ‘There are a number of ways that you can point the finger.’

With these remarks, some of her fellow Democrats are calling for her head.

For example, for Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean tweeted out a link to Gabbard’s comments and added his own commentary.

‘This is a disgrace, Gabbard should not be in Congress,’ Dean wrote.

When asked about it on MSNBC by Alex Wit, who pointed out that Gabbard wanted to see proof, Dean scoffed.

‘If you’re on the Foreign Relations Committee and you haven’t seen the proof in the last five and a half years, there’s something the matter with you,’ Dean said. ‘I am tired of people making excuses. This is no different than Trump making excuses for Putin. We’ve had enough of this.’

‘Let’s talk about facts and the fact is, Assad is a butcher, a murderer, and he has repeatedly over the past few years used chemical weapons on his own people! What more do you want?’ Dean demanded.

Neera Tanden, a top Hillary Clinton ally who heads the D.C.-based think tank the Center for American Progress, also criticized Gabbard and suggested her constituents vote her out of office.

‘People of Hawaii’s 2nd district – was it not enough for you that your rep met with murderous dictator?’ Tanden tweeted.

    Gabbi is NOT the issue, the issue is the U.S. government blatantly lying to American citizens whilst Clinton and Obama purposely sent chemical weapons from Libya to rebels in Syria so ISIL could gain access. Treason.
    Save Gabbi, hang Obama and Hillary
