Tucker Carlson will be interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin.

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.

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.
