The rapturous Russian response to the occasion of the much-hyped Feb. 9 Tucker Carlson interview with Russian president Vladimir Putin, which continued before, during and after the event, was captured “tongue in cheek” by a blogger calling himself Russian Politics No Context claimed: “Feb. 9 – Victory day in the information war”:

That view was not reflected elsewhere. The two-hour monologue in which Putin used his revisionist version of the history of Ukraine to justify his “special military operation,” was castigated by serious Western commentators, with social media responding in its customary “out of the box” brickbats and ridicule.

While the interview was shown at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time in the US, it didn’t hit the airwaves until 2:00 a.m. in Moscow, to which a number of Russian users simply asked “Are you up?” – in posts that have since been taken down.

Blogger Uliana Yapparova, commenting on the length of sock the Putin was revealing wrote: “I would have started with this question –  who chooses your pants?”

Others (naturally, of course) cast Putin as, Sauron, the archvillain in JRR Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings”:

Russian comedian Anton Pikuli wrote that Carlson’s interview followed this sort of pattern:

Tucker: “Mister Putin, why did you attack Ukraine?”

Vlad: “Carlson, my dear boy, did you know that in the year 862 Rurik...”

Voting in Russian Presidential Election Begins in Remote and Occupied Territories

Early voting for president began on Sunday in occupied parts of Ukraine, as well as remote areas of Russia. Again, the Kremlin intends to justify the farcical elections with hand-picked observers.

Some social media users wanted to assert historical territorial claims of their own.

The former Mongolian president posted a map of the extent of the Mongol empire on Telegram:

Alexander Clarkson, a lecturer at London’s King’s College also picked up on the Mongolian theme:

Chris Bakke gave an explanation of the look of pained concentration on Tucker’s face as Putin finally moved on from the 9th century:

“Seva” wanted to know about NATO’s role in causing the war:

Some said the interview should have been conducted by British comedian Philomena Cunk who once asked a historian: “What is the Soviet Onion?” They thought she would get right to the nub of the issues at hand unlike her ex-Fox News counterpart:

The moral of this story is that if you, dear reader, want to better fill two hours of your time than watch a rerun of the Carlson-Putin interview there are many more similar memes out there who will explain everything that was said and in a far more entertaining manner.

Oh my goodness. What a priceless synopsis of that staged event. People of the world that participated in the post interview well deserved roasting of 'dummy and dumbler', have such rich senses of humour. Putler please do explain what is the soviet onion? LOL. Never underestimate the Mongul empire. the LOTR reference....just awesome. I started laughing at the first meme, and will probably continue into the next article.

I hope someone stages a similar article in the USA parodying putinrump. Maybe start with a harrowing illustration his journey through a myriad of courts & jails cells as he searches for his lost presidential ring (Seal of the President).

"We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses! Wicked, tricksy, false!That "one ring to rule them"......."we must haves it precious".

Come on russian trolls.....you must be laughing at least inside right?

Tucker Carlson is such a great journalist. Too bad the scum in the media are afraid of him.

@Joseph Swanson, no thank you, but try asking your girlfriend Tucker. You can keep your homosexual escapades to yourselves, sir. Better work on the rebuttals or you'll make Putin's next meatwave.

@Joseph Swanson, no she is not. She is nowhere near the hovel you inhabit. Are you sure Tucker is okay with you trying to cheat on him? We all thought you were in a committed relationship. Your mother is probably a nice lady, so I won't insult her. Your existence is likely all she can bare.

@Joseph Swanson, such colorful language and so pathetic. Your responses indicate you to have fetishes with scatalogical ideation, homosexuality and delusions of meeting your adversaries mothers. Explains your support for Putin.
