First, much credit is due to both Tucker Carlson and Vladimir Putin for having agreed to speak to each other – or rather President Putin speaking to Tucker, as it was a lesson in Russian history and Russian culture and Russian soul, that President Putin gave not only to Tucker, but to the rest of the western world, most of whom have no clue what Russia is, and what makes Russia tick.
Tucker shared his reflections straight after his interview with Putin…
"You'd have to be crazy to think that Russia will give up Crimea."
"You'd have to be an idiot to think that Russia is an expansionist power; it's already huge and doesn't need more territory."
"You'd have to be an idiot to think that Russia could roll tanks into Vienna; there's no evidence of such intentions."
"We are ruled by lunatics"— referring to the US leadership's desire for regime change in Russia.
Here is the full interview (with transcript)
After this widely anticipated interview, announced, and awaited with high expectations, Tucker Carlson has been widely demonized by western media and politicians. "How dare you talking to our prime enemy!" was the common tenor.
Unelected EU Commissioner, Madame Von der Leyen, talked about "sanctioning" Tucker Carlson, by banning him from entering the EU. It is more than ridiculous and will never happen. The sheer propaganda moment in such a statement shows how desperate the EU is – to follow in the boots steps of America – for the EU as well as the Washington Masters, are falling apart rapidly.
