Tucker Carlson will be interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin. In a video posted on Twitter, the only site that will host Tucker Carlson’s garbage, he said, “Most Americans have no idea why Putin invaded Ukraine or what his goals are now. … Americans have a right to know all they can about a war they’re implicated in, and we have the right to tell them about it.”

This is the interview we all knew we didn’t need: Vladimir Putin’s side of the story hosted by a liar who was fired from Fox for lying about the lie of a stolen election.

This announcement comes days after being spotted at Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport and the Bolshoi Theatre. We lived in Moscow for three years. No one goes to Moscow in February for fun.

Tucker has long admired the authoritarian governments of Ilham Aliyev and Viktor Orban, but Putin is a member of The Big 4, the super villains of the authoritarian league and enemies of democracies everywhere (other members are Kim John-Un, President Xi, and the Ayatollahs).

Tucker thinks we need balanced media coverage of the War in Ukraine and as such he is invoking his First Amendment rights while justifying his actions through the lens of freedom of the press.

Ahhh, yes, freedoms Russia willfully refuses to extend to Russian-American journalists Evan Gershkovich and Alsu Kurmasheva.

Like many of the “alternative media” commentators that have emerged over the past two years, Tucker will likely take Putin’s statements at face value.

Biden Calls Putin a 'Crazy SOB'

Biden's burst of strong language follows other occasions in which he has called the Russian president, who ordered the invasion of Ukraine in 2022, a "butcher" and a "war criminal."

We are sure to hear the tired talking points of the “betrayal” of NATO’s eastward expansion, Ukraine’s secret plans to ready an attack on Russia, Ukrainian Nazi’s led by a Jewish President, Washington’s coordination of the Color Revolutions, and Moscow’s supposed willingness to cooperate with the United States — all concepts that resonate with a small but vocal fringe of conspiracy theorists and the modern Republican party...

Today I will strike, when Vindman goes to the little girls room I will strike, sneak into his office cubicle and unroll his Taco Bell burrito supreme and squeeze out a loaf inside of it, re-rolling it carefully and exiting the office. THE PHANTOM SHITTER STRIKES BACK!

@Richard Cheney. (or is it Troll Jack Griffin with his 6 or 7th fake forum name?) 



You have missed the point of "Martin Kent"s post below. He is rightfully poking fun at the MRGA trolls like yourself that worship draft dodgers like putinrump, while at the same time disparaging those in the military that risk / risked their lives to secure USA security.



But that's okay....you keep studying English in your Kremlin hosted night class's and you will start to pick up some of literary nuances.



Pertaining to your final comment about American veterans; as for your wanting to "fuck them" all, thats something you'd be better off discussing with a qualified therapist. You know one of them is dead right?

What a strange world we live in, where a sex offending draft-dodger is "God's caretaker" and the real American, and decorated servicemen (Vindman, McCain, everyone who died in all of America's wars) are dupes, fools and traitors

@LM, AS PER EARLIER GOP Blackmail requests, further work addressing the border issues has now been thwarted by that orange potato and his willing MAGA minions. They work with putin to plot the demise of all democracies.

They consistently claim they will not support anything until they get their way on some issue, and then once they get it, they refuse to keep their word and typically attempt additional blackmail.



In this latest debacle though, the traitorous MRGA GOP members in the House (and a some in the Senate), now refuse to let Biden even attempt to fix any border issue during his term. PutinRump has effectively declared it was not that important after all and can wait at least 10 months for his cronies to skim some more millions off funding to "Build the Wall" (3 of thee 4 fraudsters still in jail for that). Of course that's only if putinrump gets elected. If he doesn't then his MRGA GOP minions will need to delay any related legislation another 4 years to keep their master happy.

What does that tell sane American's about the intent of putinrumps' MRGA and weak kneed GOP minions?

Vindman is an a$$. Nobody takes Putin at face value. Tucker scored a ratings coup and has the left and the right going down on themselves. I think Tucker is brilliant for getting inside the hardliners heads. Putin is Gotti or Capone in their final acts. Germany, France, England will step into the temporary void created by the Senate Democrats and Joe Bidenfor their refusal to approve H.R.2 American Security Bill last year. Approve that bill sponsored by the Republican House and watch the border crisis go away and aid and arms to Ukraine flow.

@The peanut butter nut, I'm sensing some latent jealousy / desires in your comment. Reminds me of how little boys pick on the girls they like as they don't yet know how to properly express their love desires...just saying....

Were you staring at your shirtless putin photo as you typed that?

Vindman was accused of being a quisling. Accused of dual loyalty and being more concerned with the affairs of Ukraine rather than service to our president. So the first thing after being fired is to work for a Ukiprop rag funded by the CIA. Checks out. What a courageous patriot this Vindman is.

Lt Col Vindman served his country, the USA, (unlike a certain coward with "invisible" bone spurs) was wounded in combat yet it still mocked by the MAGA intelligentsia which are the ones who have IQs that just manage to reach double figures. So sad that they don't have the testicular fortitude of Col Vindman or have an honest and rational thought that doesn't parrot their cult leader and Putin agent, d j trump. Sucks to be you.

Alexander Vindman, a career U.S. Army officer, served (entire enlistment underneath the desk of his superiors, giving out daily blow jobs ) on the National Security Council as the director for Eastern European, Caucasus and Russian affairs, (surely selling out his nation ) as the Russia political-military affairs officer for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, (again, often seen underneath the chief desk, giving him his daily blow job, the Vindman special ) and as a military attaché in the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. (and for his final assignment you have been fired, by MAGA) now go suck some more cock you fucking Homo

Coming to Fox..."The Greatest soviet american Hero" starring...tucker carlson.
Look at what's happened to me,
I can't believe it myself.
Suddenly I'm up on top of the world,
It should've been somebody else.

[Chorus:]
Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

Just like a light of a new day,
It hit me from out of the blue.
Breaking me out of the spell I was in,
Making all of my wishes come true.

Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

Full version continues:

This is too good to be true
Look at me falling for you

Believe It Or Not (4X)

(Repeat Chorus til fade...)
