Five times, Vivek Ramaswamy blasted candidates during the four Republican debates: Vivek Ramaswamy, the Republican presidential candidate, has failed to garner significant support during his four appearances in GOP primary debates.
In the initial four Republican debates, the entrepreneur generated intense opposition due to his fiery and contentious approach to the debate. Five times throughout those debates, Ramaswamy made statements or assertions that were deemed inflammatory.
In the first debate, Ramaswamy quotes Obama
Former President Barack Obama was cited in the opening remarks of the first debate, wherein Ramaswamy referred to him as a “skinny guy with a funny last name” and questioned his presence on the GOP debate stage.
“Let me begin by addressing the matter that is on the minds of all individuals at home tonight. Who is this emaciated individual with a peculiar surname, and what is he doing in the midst of this debate arena? Bret, I must inform you that I do not practice politics. You are absolutely correct in that regard. “I am an entrepreneur,” he responded.
Later, Chris Christie, a former governor of New Jersey, criticized Ramaswamy for mimicking an Obama statement, which Republicans vehemently opposed, and compared him to an artificial intelligence machine.
“For the second time tonight, I’ve had enough of a man who sounds like ChatGPT. Christie stated on the debate stage, “Barack Obama was the last person in one of these debates to stand in the center of the stage and ask, ‘What’s a skinny guy with an odd last name doing up here?'”
“I’m the only person on the stage who isn’t bought and paid for” (1st panel discussion)
In August, Ramaswamy caused commotion during a debate by asserting that he was the sole candidate who “has not been bought and paid for.”
“Let us, as Republicans, be candid. “As the only unpaid performer on the stage, I am able to declare unequivocally that the climate change agenda is a fabrication,” Ramaswamy declared.
When word spread regarding the allegation, a number of candidates were questioned regarding whether they had been “purchased and paid for.” Every candidate responded in the negative, except for Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), who initially responded “absolutely” but later clarified his statement as “absolutely not.”
(Third debate) Ramaswamy criticizes Nikki Haley for her daughter’s use of TikTok.
An exceptionally fiery segment from among the Republican debates occurred in November, when Ramaswamy criticized Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, for using TikTok to harass her daughter. By targeting her daughter, Ramaswamy retaliated against the criticism he had received for using the platform.
Ramaswamy stated, “She made fun of me for joining TikTok while her own daughter had been using the app for quite some time.”
Haley stated, “Keep my daughter out of your discourse.” “You truly are scum.”
“NIKKI=CORRUPT” sign (fourth discussion)
On Wednesday, during the fourth debate, Ramaswamy affixed the inscription “NIKKI=CORRUPT” to his notepad and subsequently displayed that symbol throughout the debate.
“Nikki is dishonest. “This woman will have your children executed so she can purchase a larger house,” Ramaswamy declared as he displayed the sign.
His application of the prop provoked audience members to groan.
Renewed allegations that the government “lied” about September 11 and promoted the “Great Replacement Theory” (fourth debate).
Ramaswamy reiterated his assertions that the Capitol riot and the federal government’s account of the 9/11 terrorist assaults were both “inside jobs” and “lies.” Additionally, in the fourth debate, he advocated for the profoundly contentious “Great Replacement Theory.”
“Why am I the only one on stage who can state that the events of January 6 now appear to have been orchestrated internally? That the government lied to the public about Saudi Arabia’s involvement in 9/11 for twenty years?” Ramaswamy declared. “That the Great Replacement Theory is not some grand right-wing conspiracy theory but a basic statement of the Democratic Party’s platform.”
