So It Wasn’t a Hoax After All: Tucker Carlson Admits that Russia Got Trump Elected

For the past five years Donald Trump and his Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) have been whining petulantly about what they refer to as the “Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax.” It has been a well coordinated effort to refute the documented collusion between Trump and Russia to advance his campaign for president in both 2016 and 2020.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

On Friday the crusade by Fox News to absolve Trump of any liability for colluding with Russia to undermine American democracy hit a snag. Fox’s Senior Trump-fluffer, Tucker Carlson, made a surprising admission during a segment in which he intended to smear President Biden’s record on the economy in general, and gas prices in particular. Carlson embarked on a series of flagrant lies saying that…

“The White House is doing all it can to keep fuel prices high. Biden has just pushed the EU to stop buying Russian oil. It’s payback for getting Trump elected. But the effect is to guarantee higher prices on the international oil market. That means higher prices for you. So this is not an accident. They’re doing it on purpose. This is the “Green New Deal” they couldn’t get through Congress.

First of all, the entire free world has been shunning Russian oil in response to Vladimir Putin’s brutal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. That isn’t Biden’s fault. It’s Putin’s. And if Biden has supported that effort to stop funding Russia’s aggression, then he should be commended for taking the principled and moral position.

More to the point, Carlson’s statement that “It’s payback for getting Trump elected,” is an explicit admission that the so-called “Russia Hoax” was not a hoax after all. Carlson is finally conceding that Russia deliberately interfered in American politics on Trump’s behalf.

Of course, this is something that every well informed American already knew. Trump himself spoke of it during the infamous Helsinki Summit. Even Putin said so when asked “did you direct any of your officials to help” Trump? With Trump standing next him he replied, “Yes, I did.”

What’s more, a bipartisan report from the GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee found that “The Trump campaign’s interactions with Russian intelligence services during the 2016 presidential election posed a “grave” counterintelligence threat [and] detailed how associates of Donald Trump had regular contact with Russians and expected to benefit from the Kremlin’s help.”

That is, by definition, collusion. And it’s also what the Mueller Report concluded, and was testified to by Robert Mueller before Congress. More details on this were documented in the studiously researched book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” by Michael Isikoff and David Corn.

As for Carlson’s wholly dishonest assertions regarding the high price of gas, he is unjustifiably blaming Biden for a problem that is occurring worldwide. No president has the ability to control the price of oil. It’s an international commodity. However, if the Biden administration were “doing all it can to keep fuel prices high,” would he have ordered the release of 90 million barrels from the Strategic Oil Reserve? Would he be promoting the expansion of renewable energy (which Carlson also took a shot at in his rant)? Would he have supported the “Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act” that just passed in the House of Representatives?

If Carlson is looking for someone to blame for the continuing high gas prices, he might want to take note that every single Republican in the House voted against the bill to stop greedy oil companies, who are currently raking in record profits, from gouging the American people. And it’s also the Republicans who are opposed to alternative fuels.

So the GOP is happy to allow oil companies to exploit struggling Americans. Just as they were happy to allow Trump to collude with Russia. And Tucker Carlson – the perversely infatuated Putin puppet – is likewise happy to cover for them when they do it.

  1. Exactly how far up TUMP’s ass is Carlson Tucker? I would bet only his feet would be hanging out of it if we actually found out. i wouldn’t want to find out. i am truly astonished at the huge number of blatant outright lies that spew from their filthy, smelly mouths. These asshats would not ever talk if they couldn’t tell lies. It’s totally outrageous!!

  2. John, I believe Tucker’s entire body and soul are deeply embedded in the ass belonging to Rupert Murdoch. Every lie he tells, every bullshit opinion he offers, every leading “question” he poses come directly from the Fascist of Oz, who pulls all strings for the dancing puppets at Fox. I’m with Steve Schmidt, who declares that Murdoch’s US citizenship (granted by Reagan) should be revoked and he should be deported back to Australia. I disagree: he should be tried as a traitor to his adopted nation.

  3. I have often wondered, what do we need Tucker for? In this post, I see he couldn’t stop admitting Trump and Putin WERE in collusion,,In error, I guess. We know it’s true because he had quotes from Trump and Putin, himself, admitting to the fact. So, to those who so religiously follow Tucker, they were just slammed in the face with the truth. Of course, these kinds of people don’t have the ability to see beyond their own prejudices. Nicely honed by Tucker in the first place. So, it’s a toss-up if they get it. In the meantime, these sames kinds of people so quick to anger, will never believe anything but that it’s Biden’s fault for the prices at the pump.

  4. Judy, we don’t need Tucker at all, nor any of the arseholes at Fox. Those who need them are folks requiring simple answers to complex situations, especially answers which pander to their sense of aggrieved entitlement. The angry whiners. Trump’s people.

  5. I might have known that asshat Reagan granted Rupert Murdoch American citizenship. I would also like to see him tried as a traitor here in the USA, as i would quite a large number of these corrupt, lying, crook Rethuglicans. As for Fox Spews and Carlson Tucker, it makes me think only the simple minded people with very low IQ’s believe that outrageous sh%t. Fox Spews is the same category as tabloids such as, ”The National Inquirer” ” The Weekly World News and other Tabloid rags in publication. I have NEVER watched Fox Spews, i honestly don’t think i could stomach 10 seconds of that utter false BS. I would literally blow my top if i watched that garbage when they started spewing lies about Dems. It might even cause my death with the condition my heart is in now… I had open heart surgery 7 years ago and i don’t want to go through that again. I just wish someone, somewhere could shut Fox spews down and shut Carlson Tucker, Sean Hannity, and Ingraham bi$ch up forever!!!!! and throw them in prison….
