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 process 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.

RELATED: Exoneration? Collusion? Obstruction? Trump’s Fate is Sealed By 3 Brief Exchanges with Mueller

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.

Now Trump is Calling the January 6th Insurrection ‘a Hoax…Just Like Russia Russia Russia’

There is a disturbingly impressive capacity for delusion among the the cult followers of Donald Trump, also known as the Republican Party. Like any other cult, they revere Dear Leader unwaveringly, and believe everything he says, no matter how bizarre and disconnected from reality.

Donald Trump, QAnon, Dictator

On Saturday Trump held another of his traveling salivation shows. This one was in Wyoming where Trump is trying to oust Rep. Liz Cheney, a fellow Republican who he has declared insufficiently worshipful. Cheney committed the deadly sin of recognizing that Joe Biden obviously won the 2020 presidential election, and that Trump’s attempts to undermine democracy deserved a fair hearing and legal sanctions if criminality is proven.

RELATED: Liz Cheney: The ‘Supreme Dereliction of Duty’ By Trump Could Warrant Criminal Referral

Trump’s address in Wyoming, like nearly all of his public rants, was a rehashing of the tedious playlist that he regurgitates on auto-spew. So naturally he devoted significant time to his obsession with the allegations of voter fraud for which he has been unable to provide a shred of evidence after sixteen months, more than sixty court challenges, and a new crocumentary by an actual felon who was convicted of voter fraud.

What was new at this event was that Trump expanded his list of verifiable occurrences that he considers to be a hoax. In addition to his first impeachment, his second impeachment, his extortion of Ukrainian President Zelenskyy, the COVID-19 virus, the Mueller Report, climate change, the 2020 presidential election results, and his well-documented connections to Russia, Trump is now adding the January 6th insurrection. He repeatedly made the claim that it was a hoax in Wyoming saying that…

“[Russia] was a hoax. And now they’re doing it again with the January 6th.”

“As one of the nation’s leading proponents of the insurrection hoax, Liz Cheney has pushed a grotesquely false, fabricated, hysterical, partisan narrative. And that was the narrative of the day.”

“Now you look at the so called word insurrection. January 6th. What a lot of crap. And most of this country knows it. And you know who else knows it? The Democrats. It’s another con job just like Russia Russia Russia. This was made up by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. A total fake story.”

So now Trump wants his glassy-eyed disciples to believe that the riots on Capitol Hill that everyone saw on live television, never actually happened. He has previously tried to gaslight his gullible groupies by saying that the rioters were merely peaceful protesters, or vacationing tourists, or even clandestine operatives working for Antifa and/or the FBI. But this appears to be the first time he has denied its existence.

RELATED: PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year: The January 6th Insurrection Disinformation By Trump and Fox News

Trump may have a difficult time selling this notion that the insurrection was a hoax to the populace at large. According to a recent Pew Research survey, 67% of the American people – including 41% of Republicans – said that Trump bears some or a lot of responsibility for the violence and destruction committed by some of his supporters when they broke into the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.”

Nevertheless, Trump will keep trying to peddle his pathetic lies. And his narrow assembly of Deplorables will eagerly lap it up. And as long as Trump can continue to fleece his flock, he will be satisfied. That’s the way of the Grifter.

UPDATE 6/8/2022: On Fox News, Lara Trump also calls the January 6th insurrection a hoax.

Donald Trump Whines to Fox News that He Wants His (Putrid) Reputation Back? – He Can Have It!

This week the right-wing media mob became fixated on flogging yet another baseless pseudo-scandal involving former senator and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. It’s rather impressive how, after thirty years, Clinton still manages to send tingles up the spongy spines of the Deplorable press.

Donald Trump

The subject of this wholly contrived non-controversy was a report concerning the testimony of Clinton’s former campaign manager, Robby Mook in a show trial led by special clown-sel, John Durham. Most of the reporting parroted the same deliberate distortions that Fox News disseminated in their predictably biased coverage.

SEE: Media Freaks Out Over Fake News that Hillary Clinton Approved Trump/Russia Campaign Stories

On Sunday Fox News followed up their story with a response from Donald Trump. But first they had to reiterate the falsehoods that they dispensed in the original report. In the opening sentence Fox stated that “Hillary Clinton herself approved the dissemination of false information.” Which is utterly untrue and not supported by their own article.

The campaign did not regard the information as false. In fact, it was deemed credible at the time by multiple sources. And they disseminated it to a reporter who they expected would conduct a more in depth investigation. That’s actually the responsible course of action. Nevertheless, Fox News sought a response from Trump who could only be relied on to muddy the matter further. Which he did…

“‘This is one of the greatest political scandals in history,’ Trump told Fox News Saturday morning. ‘For three years, I had to fight her off, and fight those crooked people off, and you’ll never get your reputation fully back. Where do I get my reputation back?’ Trump said again. ‘I had to fight them off,’ Trump said. ‘And if we had real leadership, instead of people like Mitch McConnell, they would do something about it. And guys like Bill Barr. They would have done something about it.’ [and that it] distracted officials from what ‘could have been a real danger with Russia.'”

Trump is right about this being “one of the greatest political scandals in history.” Just not the one in his delusional mind. The fact that he and his campaign corroborated so often with Russia is unprecedented. And his complaints that rabidly partisan players like McConnell and Barr weren’t sufficiently corrupt for his purposes only makes him look even more guilty.

However, what stands out in this tirade is Trump’s pleading that he get his reputation back. Really? He wants to restore a reputation best known for dishonesty, corruption, hostility, malignant narcissism, and jaw-dropping ignorance? He wants to refresh the public’s impression of him as the ultimate loser and recidivist failure? Okay, fine. Let him have it.

As for Fox News, their reputation isn’t any better. The same article brazenly lied about Trump’s unsavory connections to Russia, and his infatuation with Vladimir Putin, saying that…

“After nearly two years, Mueller’s investigation yielded no evidence of criminal conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election.”

After three years Fox News is still peddling the falsehood that Mueller found no evidence of Trump colluding with Russia or violating the law. To the contrary, in his Senate testimony Mueller explicitly told the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Jerry Nadler, that Trump was not, as he repeatedly lied, “totally exonerated.” And in another exchange with Rep. Adam Schiff, Mueller confirmed that “Trump and his campaign welcomed and encouraged Russian interference [and] lied about it to cover it up.”

SEE Exoneration? Collusion? Obstruction? Trump’s Fate is Sealed By 3 Brief Exchanges with Mueller

So if that’s the reputation that Trump wants back, he’s more than welcome to it. In fact, he never lost it to begin with. After all, he worked so hard to slather it with sleaze and drench it in disgrace that it would be a shame to let that go to waste. And it’s rather humorous that Trump thinks his reputation was taken from him. Because. seriously, who else would want it?

Media Freaks Out Over Fake News that Hillary Clinton Approved Trump/Russia Campaign Stories

Nothing thrills the press like the stench of a budding scandal involving a prominent public figure. And for thirty years Hillary Clinton has been at the top of the media’s hit list, despite never having confirmed a single episode of wrongdoing. And after being out of government service for six years, she remains a prime target of the press.

Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump

The latest hysterical outrage was triggered by reports of testimony by former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook in a case brought to trial by John Durham, the special counsel appointed by Donald Trump’s Attorney General Bill Barr. Durham’s mandate was to vindicate Trump by fabricating phony charges of misconduct related to his unsavory connections to Russia and Vladimir Putin.

RELATED: Trump Whines that the Media Didn’t Fall for the Durham Nothingburger About Clinton ‘Spying’

The news reports covering Mook’s testimony were mostly wild distortions of the actual facts. Even CNN played into it with a story headlined “Hillary Clinton personally approved plan to share Trump-Russia allegation with the press in 2016, campaign manager says.” However, that is not what Mook’s testimony said at all. After repeating the falsehood in the headline, a more accurate description was given in the article’s opening paragraphs:

“Robby Mook said he attended a meeting with other senior campaign officials where they learned about strange cyberactivity that suggested a relationship between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which is based in Moscow. The group decided to share the information with a reporter, and Mook subsequently ran that decision by Clinton herself. ‘We discussed it with Hillary,’ Mook said, later adding that ‘she agreed with the decision.'”

So what Mook actually said was that the decision was already made and acted upon, and was brought to Clinton after the fact, where she agreed with what had already been done. The stories that say that she “approved the plan” suggest that she was informed in advance and gave it a greenlight. In reality, Clinton merely expressed her agreement, perhaps after her staff had already executed the plan.

What’s worse is that many stories are circulating through the conservative media asserting that Clinton not only gave the plan a go-ahead, but that she contrived it herself and “knew” that it was false. That could not be farther from the truth. The unexplained cyberactivity connecting Trump to the Russian bank was first observed by independent tech investigators. Reports of those observations were later brought to the attention of the Clinton campaign who had every reason to regard them as credible. Mook testified that the campaign passed the information on to the press with the intention that they would investigate and either confirm or refute it.

All of these deliberate distortions of both the cyberactivity, and the Clinton campaign’s role in publicizing it, are part of the right-wing Durham crusade to distract the public from the documented connections between Trump and Russia. They add to prior distortions by Durham and company that Trump used to falsely claim that his campaign had been spied on.

For the record, there were numerous documented contacts between the Trump camp and Russian operatives during and after the 2016 presidential election. And Trump himself publicly asked Russia to interfere in the election by hacking into Clinton’s emails. Many of these activities were catalogued in the book Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump, by Michael Isikoff and David Corn.

RELATED: Trump Doubles Down on His Treasonous Putin Puffery While Continuing to Insult Biden and America

Trump’s doting affinity for Putin is well known. He has spent the past six years fawning over Putin and advancing the interests of Russia. And that extends to the present as Trump takes Putin’s side in the War in Ukraine. Meanwhile, the press is unfairly hammering Clinton who got Trump’s unpatriotic behaviors right all along.

EU Bans Russian Propaganda TV Networks, While Fox News Still Peddles Putin’s Lies in the US

From the outset of Russia’s brutal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, Russia has been frantically struggling to disseminate flagrant falsehoods regarding the war in an effort to justify their genocidal aggression against a peaceful neighbor. Vladimir Putin has variously claimed that Ukraine doesn’t really exist as a sovereign nation or that he’s rescuing its people from its Nazi leaders. All of which are heinous lies.

Fox News, Vladimir Putin

The propaganda crusade embarked upon by Russia has a global footprint, with media outlets that are controlled by the Kremlin promulgating blatantly fictional distortions of reality. But that campaign of deceit has just hit a road block in the European Union as it takes a big step toward shutting down the flow Russian disinformation. According to Politico

“European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen Wednesday proposed banning three additional Russian state-owned broadcasters from Europe, in a move designed to crack down on Russian disinformation after Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Von der Leyen gave details on a sixth package of sanctions against Russia, during an address to the European Parliament plenary in Strasbourg. ‘We are banning three big Russian state-owned broadcasters from our airwaves. They will not be allowed to distribute their content anymore in the EU, in whatever shape or form, be it on cable, via satellite, on the internet or via smartphone apps,’ von der Leyen said.

“‘We have identified these TV channels as mouthpieces, that amplify [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s lies and propaganda aggressively. We should not give them a stage anymore to spread these lies,’ she added. […] At the beginning of March, Kremlin-backed RT and Sputnik were banned in the EU.”

This is a wholly appropriate action to stem the dishonesty emanating from Russia as it executes its deadly scorched earth offensive against Ukraine. And it should be seen as an example of how other nations should deal with Russia’s media hype networks that are polluting the public discourse.

Among the nations that should take inspiration from the EU is the United States, where Putin’s propaganda pulpits continue to preach. And there is not a more shameless mouthpiece for Putin’s lies than Fox News. Along with relentless criticisms of President Biden, the network airs daily defenses of Russia and exaltations of Putin from the likes of Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and especially, Fox News Senior Putin Apologist, Tucker Carlson.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Rattles Off His Ridiculous Reasons for Why You Shouldn’t Hate Putin

As far back as November 2021, Carlson was taking Russia’s side over the U.S. and fawning over Putin saying…

“Why do I care about what’s going on in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia? And why shouldn’t I root for Russia, because I am.”

More recently, Carlson insisted that the U.S. wasn’t really interested in helping Ukraine at all. He said that the Biden administration was only doing it to “punish Russia” for “stealing Hillary Clinton’s coronation.” You have to hand it to Carlson for managing to mash up the war in Ukraine with Fox’s obsession with Clinton.

That, however, doesn’t even begin to tell the whole story of Fox’s treasonous betrayals. Carlson has also been advocating appeasement with Russia as it continues to murder innocent Ukrainians. “If you wanted to save Ukraine,” Carlson advised, “you would push for a settlement now.” And he parroted the Russian whine that “the war in Ukraine is designed to cause regime change in Moscow.” What’s more, Carlson regularly serves up Russian fake news, such as his Kremlin-approved assertion that pictures of Ukrainian massacres are a “false flag” operation. And for his trouble, clips from Carlson’s program are replayed almost nightly on Russian-state TV.

RELATED: Only on Fox News: Russian Foreign Minister Praises the Network’s Pro-Putin Propaganda

So while the EU is taking responsible actions to stem the spread of Russian disinformation, Fox News is embracing and magnifying it. They are deliberately poisoning the weak minds of their gullible viewers with treasonous talking points taken directly from Putin’s playbook. They are furthering the interests of America’s enemies. And it all comes wrapped in a barrage of garisbh red, white, and blue graphics, and pseudo-patriotic music.

Tucker Carlson: US is Only Aiding Ukraine to ‘Punish Russia’ for ‘Stealing Hillary Clinton’s Coronation’

Fox News has a roster of ultra-regressive shills who provide a daily dose of diatribes that are drenched with dishonesty. But on any given day you can rely on one pundit in particular to sink below the rest and unleash the most repugnant distortions of reality and flagrant conspiracy theories contrived on the manically right-wing network. And that dishonor is bestowed upon Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson.

Hillary Clinton

Leave it to Carlson to find the scum-slathered bottom of every issue with his smug sermonizing and deliberate disregard for facts. The latest example of his Olympic-grade assholery was presented on Monday night during a segment on the Russian war in Ukraine. Carlson took his standard position in support of Russia and its genocidal dictator, Vladimir Putin.

RELATED: Fox News Senior Putin Apologist, Tucker Carlson, Pleads to Keep the Russian Dictator in Power

However, on this occasion Carlson went even further down the rabid hole with his warped analysis of why the United States is providing aid to Ukraine. And in his perverse perspective it had nothing to do with saving lives or defending a democratic ally. Carlson ranted that (video below)

“Democrats have convinced themselves Russia stole the presidency which rightfully belonged to Hillary Clinton. And they mean it when they say it. And that’s why they are taking us to war with Russia. [..] The war in Ukraine is not about saving democracy. Please.”

WHUT? Democrats are taking the U.S. to war because “Russia stole the presidency” from Hillary Clinton? That’s the sort of unique perspective that one would expect from a schizoid street preacher on meth. Carlson asserted that “We know the Biden administration doesn’t care” about the Ukrainian people or democracy and that “Many more Ukrainian civilians will die, certainly, thanks to the Biden administration’s policies.” He continued his rant saying that…

“If you wanted to save Ukraine, its people, its infrastructure, you would push for a settlement now. You would have done it two months ago. But they’re not doing that. […] Instead, the war in Ukraine is designed to cause regime change in Moscow. They want to topple the Russian government. That would be payback for the 2016 election. So this it the logical, maybe the inevitable, end stage of “Russiagate.” Now we should have seen this coming because they said it out loud years ago. Here’s Adam Schiff from two years ago predicting it, saying it. Watch this…”

Here we have Carlson unambiguously advocating for appeasement with the Russian invaders. He seriously believes that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy should negotiate with Putin – who is murdering Ukrainian civilians – to concede part of Ukraine to Russia simply because Russia demands it. And Carlson’s claim that “the war in Ukraine is designed to cause regime change in Moscow” is utterly absurd. The war was started by Russia. So is Carlson saying that Russia designed the war to cause regime change in Russia?

RELATED: Trump’s ‘Solution’ to the War in Ukraine is to Appease Russia and Quash Any Criticism of Putin

Carlson then switches gears to assert that the war is actually “payback for the 2016 election.” And his justification for that ludicrous notion comes from something he clipped from Rep. Adam Schiff’s opening remarks of the first impeachment of Donald Trump:

Schiff video: As one witness put it during our impeachment inquiry, “The United States aids Ukraine and her people so that we can fight Russia over there and we don’t have to fight Russia over here.

As usual, Carlson edited that video to remove the context. Carlson is trying to portray the motivation for American aid to Ukraine as solely based on antipathy toward Russia. But in Schiff’s unedited remarks it is apparent that the concern for Ukraine was paramount:

“Trump conditioned hundreds of millions of dollars in congressionally appropriated, taxpayer-funded military assistance for the same purpose: to apply more pressure on Ukraine’s leader to announce the investigations. This military aid, which has long enjoyed strong bipartisan support, was designed to help Ukraine defend itself from the Kremlin’s aggression. More than fifteen thousand Ukrainians have died fighting Russian forces and their proxies, and the military aid was for such essentials as sniper rifles, rocket propelled grenade launchers, radar, night vision goggles and other vital support for the war effort.

Most critically, the military aid we provide Ukraine helps to protect and advance American national security interests in the region and beyond. America has an abiding interest in stemming Russian expansionism, and resisting any nation’s efforts to remake the map of Europe by dint of military force, even as we have tens of thousands of troops stationed there. Moreover, as one witness put it during our impeachment inquiry: ‘The United States aids Ukraine and her people so that they can fight Russia over there, and we don’t have to fight Russia here.'”

It’s also notable that it wasn’t just Democrats who supported aid to Ukraine. Republicans, then as now, voted to appropriate funds and military support. So that’s another reason that Carlson’s claim that Democrats plotted all of this to topple Putin doesn’t make any sense. But making sense clearly isn’t the objective of someone who claims that…

“We don’t arm Ukraine so we can help Ukrainians. They are merely unfortunate pawns in all of this. We arm Ukraine so that we can punish Russia. Why? For stealing Hillary Clinton’s coronation.”

So it’s still all about Hillary Clinton? REALLY? Notice that nowhere in Carlson’s harangue does he ever acknowledge that Russia initiated this heinous invasion against a peaceful neighbor. Or that, contrary to being pawns, Ukraine has been begging for help to fight Russia. To Carlson, just as to Trump, this is merely a negotiable difference of opinion that should be resolved by reaching a compromised settlement wherein both parties make concessions.

Never mind that it’s Putin who is the aggressor and refuses to negotiate. There is simply no way that Carlson will criticize Putin or demand that Russia cease its monstrous assault and leave Ukraine. And rather than acknowledge reality, he’s venturing even farther from it with his bizarre allegations about Hillary Clinton. Carlson is as cognitively deficient as Trump.

Trump’s ‘Solution’ to the War in Ukraine is to Appease Russia and Quash Any Criticism of Putin

This week Russia is escalating their genocidal assault on the people of Ukraine with an offensive in the eastern region of Donbas. It is already producing more of the atrocities and war crimes that Russia been committing for the past several weeks. The United States and it allies throughout the world are united in condemning Russia’s actions and are coming to the aid of the brave Ukrainians.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

However, Donald Trump is continuing to whitewash Russia’s invasion and is offering advice that is repugnant and only serves to benefit the Russian aggressors. In a tweet posted by his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Trump said that…

“It doesn’t make sense that Russia and Ukraine aren’t sitting down and working out some kind of an agreement. If they don’t do it soon, there will be nothing left but death, destruction, and carnage. This is a war that never should have happened, but it did. The solution can never be as good as it would have been before the shooting started, but there is a solution, and it should be figured out now—not later—when everyone will be DEAD!”

Notice that nowhere in this comment does Trump ever mention the savagery and inhumanity of what Russia is doing to innocents in Ukraine. He doesn’t acknowledge that Russia initiated the invasion against a peaceful neighbor. To Trump this is merely a negotiable difference of opinion that can be resolved by reaching a compromised settlement wherein both parties make concessions.

RELATED: Trump Doubles Down on His Treasonous Putin Puffery While Continuing to Insult Biden and America

That’s a position that is typical of Trump’s transactional approach to everything. He believes that bullies should get what they want just because they demand it. It’s also a position that leans heavily in favor of Trump’s pals in Russia who have no claim whatsoever to any accommodation by Ukraine. Why should Ukraine be forced to capitulate to the Russian marauders?

Notice also that nowhere in Trump’s comment does he even mention his BFF, Vladimir Putin. Trump has a long history of favoring Putin over his fellow Americans, especially President Biden. Trump viciously maligns Biden as a “radical” who is trying to “destroy” the country, and who is not fit for deliberations. But he thinks that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy should be compelled to sit down with the murderous heathen, Putin, and make “some kind of an agreement.” Trump doesn’t (can’t) explain what that agreement might look like. But when he previously offered his assessment of the situation it devolved into an entirely irrelevant and inane rant about windmills. That’s right. Windmills!

RELATED: In Flaming Fox News Fiasco Trump Proves He Has No Friggin’ Idea What To Do About Ukraine

Trump’s pleading for Zelenskyy to cave in to Putin is particularly bizarre considering that it’s Putin who refuses to negotiate. Zelensky has consistently advocated discussions aimed at resolving the conflict, or even just allowing for the safe evacuation of civilians. In response, Putin just issued an ultimatum that Ukraine “surrender or die.” And it’s under those circumstances that Trump believes that Putin is a reasonable person with whom to negotiate and that Zelenskyy should acquiesce to him?

In 2019 Zelenskyy visited Trump in the White House to seek military aid from the U.S. while Russia was already supporting a separatist movement in Eastern Ukraine. During that meeting Trump brazenly lied about the differences between the military support given to Ukraine by President Obama and himself. Then, as now, Trump suggested that Ukraine’s problems with Russia could all be solved if they would just “get together” with Putin.

Remember, Trump was impeached (the first time) because he tried to hold military aid hostage in order to coerce Zelenskyy to fabricate dirt on then-candidate Joe Biden. You can tell what Zelenskyy thought about Trump’s advice by the look on his face when Trump said that…

“I really believe that President Putin would like to do something. I really hope that you and President Putin can get together and solve your problem.”

So Trump has been arguing Putin’s side in this conflict for at least three years. And his latest tweet is proof that he’s still doing so. He still thinks that Ukraine should be making concessions to their enemy. And he still refuses to articulate even the slightest criticism of Putin.

What’s worse is that the Republican Party is going along with Trump on all of this. Which ought to be more than enough reason to vote every last one of those anti-American cretins out of office before they decide that the U.S. should be making concessions to Russia too.

Fox News Putin Puppet Tucker Carlson’s False Flag Fiction Gets Ripped By CNN’s Jim Acosta

Tucker Carlson of Fox News must be so proud. He has achieved his life long dream. He has become the most watched American television commentator – on Russian television. Carlson achieved that milestone by his continuous and effusive praise for Vladimir Putin. And Russian TV has returned the favor.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

On Sunday, Jim Acosta of CNN took note of Carlson’s pro-Putin propaganda. While responsible journalists worldwide were documenting the war crimes being committed by Russian troops on Putin’s orders, Carlson was attempting to whitewash the matter and absolve Putin of any guilt by advancing the utterly baseless assertion that Ukraine was staging some of the scenes of horror. Carlson didn’t present a single shred of evidence of his grotesque accusation. But he was, nevertheless, “dead certain” of it, as he told his gullible viewers.

REALTED: WTF? Fox News Traitor Tucker Carlson Takes Russia’s Side Against Democracy and America

Acosta delivered a seething commentary that exposed Carlson’s treasonous betrayal of American interests and, more importantly, the welfare of the Ukrainian people who are being slaughtered by Putin’s genocidal militia. Acosta said that…

Acosta: With reports about Russian atrocities mounting, the truth about Putin’s invasion is beyond dispute. Much of the world has agreed that Putin’s army has committed war crimes by blatantly attacking civilians in Ukraine. Unless you happen to get your news in Russian. Then there’s Tucker Carlson, who has accused news outlets of lying about what’s really happening in Ukraine.

Carlson: If news organizations are eagerly promoting lies about a war in progress, what can the rest of us believe? What can we know is true? And honestly, it’s hard to know what is true. We can be sure Russian soldiers have committed atrocities. There are countless pictures of that. Some must be real. But we can also be dead certain the war is not, despite what they tell us, a childish tale of good versus evil. This is Eastern Europe, after all. Everything is a lot more complicated than it looks on America TV.

Acosta went on to note that Carlson’s caustic lecturing was “A reminder that this is the same commentator who said in 2019 that he was rooting for Russia over Ukraine.” And then getting to the core of Carlson’s repulsiveness, Acosta said that…

“Last week Tucker Carlson tried to imply that some of what you are seeing has been fabricated and amplified by news organizations. That sounds a lot like what we heard from Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, who said that bodies of Ukrainian civilians lining the streets of Bucha were, quote, a forgery aimed at denigrating the Russian army.”

This isn’t the first time that Carlson has spread flagrant lies about imaginary “false flag” operations. Last year he produced an entire crocumentary about the January 6th insurrection that he claimed was a false flag affair staged by the FBI. It was also not the first time that Acosta has hammered Carlson for being what he colorfully christened a Human Manure Spreader.” Then, on Sunday, Acosta closed by saying that…

“News organizations are not repeating lies, as Tucker Carlson put it. Innocent people, children, are being targeted in Ukraine. There is nothing childish about that. And journalists are putting their lives on the line to tell the truth. Something you’d think that Tucker would know, considering some of the journalists injured or killed bravely reporting the truth worked for Fox.”

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Fox News is complicit in this junkyard journalism. It is what they specialize in. And it is why President Biden was so right when he said that Fox News is “one of the most destructive forces in the U.S.”

Even Tucker Carlson Says Biden Was Right About Russia Invading Ukraine – for About 5 Seconds

America’s foremost Russian asset is at it again. Tucker Carlson of Fox News has distinguished himself among America’s white-wing blowhards as Russia’s favorite western media “personality.” He shamelessly fawns over Vladimir Putin and maligns President Biden, even during a time of war. No wonder Russian TV venerates Fox News and replays Carlson on an almost nightly basis.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

On Wednesday night Carlson continued his adoration of all things Putin. But this time he may have given some unintended credit to President Biden. In a rambling rant Carlson delivered a rather bizarre take on the Russian assault on Ukraine saying that…

“When the Russian military invaded Ukraine last month, the most highly credentialed people in the world seemed stunned by it […] That’s pretty weird if you think about it, because for weeks, Joe Biden had been speaking in a very loud voice about a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine. They seemed ready for it and yet it turns out that nobody in Washington, including Biden himself, really thought it was going to happen and when it did happen, official Washington concluded that Putin must be insane.”

What? Carlson just said that “Biden had been speaking in a very loud voice about a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine” and that “Biden himself [didn’t think] it was going to happen” – in the same freakin’ sentence! It’s true that Biden had correctly predicted that Russia would invade Ukraine. He said back in mid January that “My guess is [Putin] will move in.” And he repeated that prediction several times in the weeks that followed. However, contrary to Carlson’s assertion, there is no record of Biden ever saying that did not think that would happen. As usual, Carlson is making stuff up to fit – or rather manufacture – his narrative.

What’s more, Carlson advises his already dimwitted audience to listen only to those “who saw the Ukraine war coming and said so out loud.” That, of course, is President Biden, as Carlson himself said above. But shortly thereafter Carlson contradicted himself (again) to say that Biden didn’t say what Carlson already said that he said. Then Carlson went further over the edge saying that “The U.S. has never had a president as reckless as Joe Biden.” For being right?

Carlson’s entire monologue was an introduction to a commentary by the British white nationalist, Nigel Farage. Not surprisingly, Farage agrees with Carlson’s exaltation of Putin and recommends that the West surrender to his imperialistic aggression. They think we should just give Putin everything he wants. Farage and Carlson believe that Putin “is actually on our side,” and admonish us against “provoking Putin, whether we like him or not.”

They are good couple of obedient, fascist, sycophants, aren’t they? Carlson then unleashed a common and ridiculous whine among conservatives that they/he is being censored, while he’s disgorging his lies on a national television network: He asked…

“Why did the Russians do this? It’s not treasonous to ask that.[…] but our leaders so far have refused to do that. They keep lying to themselves. They’re imposing censorship on the rest of us.”

Here Carlson is reprising his signature method of propagating crackpot conspiracy theories by pretending to ask innocent questions. But his questions are actually carefully contrived statements intended to advance his overtly political biases. In this case he’s questioning anyone who would criticize Vladimir Putin for launching an unprovoked, genocidal invasion of his peaceful neighbor Ukraine.

Carlson complains that some pundits have been mean to Putin by characterizing him as insane. Because Carlson, like Trump, thinks Putin is a genius and devotedly defends him. Which proves that Carlson is right that somebody here is indeed insane. Except that it’s Carlson himself. Who is also flagrantly anti-American.

Connecting the Dots: Trump Begs Putin for Dirt on Biden While Russia Calls Trump Their Partner

The long festering and treasonous infatuation that Donald Trump has for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is a well documented fact. It was apparent even before Trump’s occupation of the White House, an electoral catastrophe that Putin admits to having engineered.

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

Trump’s reliance on Putin can be seen as early as July of 2016 when he asked Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails. Trump then spent most of his single term in office taking Putin’s side over that of the U.S. Yet he still has the gall to file a preposterous lawsuit against Clinton (and several dozen others) claiming that his Russia-lust was “fake news.”

Now Trump has taken his adoration of Putin down to another new low. While Russia is currently engaged in a genocidal assault against America’s democratic ally Ukraine, Trump just asked Putin, our enemy’s leader, dig up dirt on our President and his family. And he even brags about this via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill. In this interview by a right-wing website Trump says that…

“As long as Putin is not exactly a fan of our country… Let him explain why did the mayor of Moscow’s wife give Joe Biden, both of them, $3.5 million? … So now I would think Putin would know the answer to that. I think he should release it. Now, you won’t get the answer from Ukraine.”

For the record, there is as much evidence of these allegations by Trump as there is of the election fraud he is still ranting about – NONE! These charges have been debunked repeatedly. Not that Trump cares about these facts, or any others.

In the meantime, Trump’s Russian pals are eager to embrace him and his mouthpieces on Fox News. Respected Russia watcher Julia Davis recently reported on how Russia’s state-run TV is re-airing Tucker Carlson’s program and parroting baseless charges against the Bidens:

“These days, [Russian] state television draws on a bounty of translated quotes almost exclusively from two Western voices: Tucker Carlson of Fox News and former U.S. President Donald J. Trump. [and that] Russia’s Defense Ministry released a colorful diagram, purporting to demonstrate that President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, is secretly bankrolling the Pentagon’s biolabs in Ukraine.”

So while Trump is clinging to, and praising, his Russian confederates, the Russian government and media is dispensing his propaganda. And they are not the least bit shy about this sordid relationship. Russian TV host Evgeny Popov recently opined that

“It is time for us, for our people, to call on the people of the United States to change the regime in the U.S. early, and to again help our partner Trump to become president.”

That’s a remarkable statement. First of all, Popov is advocating the “early” removal of President Biden from office by means that he doesn’t disclose. And then somehow replacing him with Trump, also by some mysterious mechanism. Popov also confesses that Trump is Russia’s “partner” whom they wish to help “again.” Presumably like they did in 2016 and, unsuccessfully, in 2020.

Now that Trump and Russia are openly talking about their nefarious partnership, it is all the more obvious why Trump would solicit Putin’s help in manufacturing scandals to malign Biden. It is an unsavory relationship that is also flagrantly unpatriotic. Yet both parties to this heinous hookup are proudly extolling it. And let’s not forget that Fox News and the Republican Party are firmly and comfortably behind all of it. You really have to wonder how any loyal American citizen can tolerate this blatant betrayal.
