Putin Puppet Tucker Carlson: Gas Prices are ‘More Significant’ than the Lives of Ukrainians

Two and a half years ago Donald Trump was impeached – the first time – for having unlawfully attempted to extort Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and coerce him into trying to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. From that day forward Fox News has sought to malign and undermine Ukraine, even as they have been subjected to the genocidal aggression of Vladimir Putin’s increasingly imperialistic Russia.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

Leading the Fox News attack on Ukraine has been their Senior Putin Apologist, Tucker Carlson. He has been a relentlessly reverential spokesperson for Putin’s aspirations of world domination. Carlson and his Fox colleagues, have so closely aligned the network with Russian interests that it is essentially serving as the U.S. bureau of the Kremlin’s Ministry of Disinformation.

On Saturday Carlson was the keynote speaker at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa. The conference is sponsored by an organization founded by radical right-wing evangelist, James Dobson, with a mission to “inspire Christ-like leadership in the home, in the church, and in government.” So naturally, the event featured the hypocrisy and blasphemy that is emblematic of Trumpism.

Carlson was an inspired choice for keynote speaker, and his audience surely wasn’t disappointed by his rancid rhetoric. Intent on fomenting division and political animus, Carlson made a point of lambasting Democrats with deliberately dishonest characterizations. For instance, Carlson lied that it’s “absolutely true” that Democrats…

“…are promoting the idea that your family is worthless compared to loyalty to your employer and a political party. That is the sickest message I can possibly imagine. Totalitarian message, by the way. They don’t want the competition.”

That is indeed a sick message. But it wasn’t difficult for Carlson to invent it in his perverse imagination. It’s a common tactic by Carlson to describe some loathsome behavior that is resolutely Republican and falsely attribute it Democrats. But no Democrat has ever hinted at such an agenda. To the contrary, it is Republicans who exalt corporations by giving them preferential tax benefits, exempting them from regulations designed to save lives, and even referring to them as “people” who are entitled to the same rights as human citizens.

However, Carlson was just getting started. He also found a way to slip in some pro-Russian propaganda into his harangue, saying that…

“I’m not a Putin defender, despite what you may have heard. I don’t really care one way or the other because he’s not my president. He doesn’t preside over my country. And what he does in Ukraine – I think historically significant, certainly significant to Ukrainians – is not more significant to me than what gas costs. In fact, it’s not even in the same universe.”

First of all, Carlson is the epitome of a Putin defender because of what you have heard. He has repeatedly used his primetime Fox News platform to venerate the murderous Russian dictator. Here are just a few examples of his unabashed admiration and unequivocal support for Putin’s terrorism:

Tucker Carlson of Fox News Rattles Off His Ridiculous Reasons for Why You Shouldn’t Hate Putin
Carlson demonstrates his habit of asking asinine questions: “Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him? Has he shipped every middle-class job in my town to Russia? Did he manufacture a worldwide pandemic…” And he went on for several more minutes of that idiocy absolving Putin of any wrongdoing.

WTF? Fox News Traitor Tucker Carlson Takes Russia’s Side Against Democracy and America
“Why would we take Ukraine’s side? Why wouldn’t we have Russia’s side? I’m totally confused.”

Fox News Senior Putin Apologist, Tucker Carlson, Pleads to Keep the Russian Dictator in Power
“We can force Vladimir Putin from office entirely […but…] Would the next Russian president be an improvement over Putin?” Do you suppose that Carlson would have used the same argument for keeping Hitler in power?

Only on Fox News: Russian Foreign Minister Praises the Network’s Pro-Putin Propaganda
Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, in an interview on the Kremlin sponsored RT (Russian Television) cable channel, lavished praise on Fox News as a singular voice for Russia’s interests, saying that “only Fox News is trying to present some alternative point of view.” Alternative meaning anti-American.

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

And there you have it. Carlson – in his own words, on his own program – has explicitly declared his support for Russia and Putin. So why would Carlson leap to Russia’s defense in this debate? Well, remember that Russia eagerly helped the Trump campaign in 2016 and 2020. Carlson and Fox News surely appreciate that. Ukraine, on the other hand, declined to help Trump steal another election after they were threatened by Trump with the loss of military aid if they didn’t submit to his demands.

For his trouble, the Kremlin distributed a memo ordering Russian media to “feature Tucker Carlson in their coverage of the #Ukraine war ‘as much as possible,’” because he “sharply criticizes the actions of the United States [and] NATO.” Consequently, clips from Carlson’s program are replayed almost nightly on Russian-state TV. Such patriotism as this could not be ignored by Stephen Colbert:

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 Reveals He Talked to Putin About Invading Ukraine, But Stiffed Them on Military Aid Anyway

It’s inevitable that if you let Donald Trump talk long enough, he will eventually incriminate himself. And at his cult rally in Ohio on Saturday he confessed to the despicable crime of cutting off military aid to Ukraine, an imperiled ally, despite having knowledge of the deadly circumstances that would result.

Donald Trump Vladimir Putin

To make matters worse, the abhorrent cretin is actually proud of it as he spun the tale to his cult followers who likewise lapped it up. Trump babbled pridefully that…

“Those people that are dead that you see laying all over the streets – all of that is so senseless, It would have never happened. I know Putin very well. There is zero chance that this would have happened. And I talked about it with him. I knew he wanted it. But he knew he couldn’t do it. And by the way, he didn’t do it for four years. There’s a reason for that.”

This is s profoundly revealing passage from Trump’s tedious and mostly repetitious speech. Let’s take a moment to break it down.

First of all, Trump makes a callous reference to the victims of Putin’s genocidal assault without the tiniest bit of sympathy. To him it is merely something that doesn’t make sense, rather than a horrific and deliberate massacre. And he still refrains from condemning Putin in even the slightest measure.

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

Next, Trump repeats his baseless claim that “it would have never happened” if he were still president. Of course, there is no way for him to know that. We do know, however, that he did nothing for four years about Russia’s annexation of Crimea. Well, nothing except try to remove the sanctions that were imposed by President Obama and try to get Russia readmitted to the G7.

Next, while bragging that he “know[s] Putin very well,” Trump reveals that he talked to Putin about invading Ukraine and he “knew [Putin} wanted it.” So Trump is admitting that he knew that Putin was contemplating an invasion. And at the same time, Trump was withholding military aid from Ukraine in an extortion attempt to force President Zelenskyy into fabricating dirt on then-candidate Joe Biden. For his political self-interest Trump betrayed a democratic ally knowing full well of Putin’s intentions. That’s what Trump was impeached for, the first time.

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

Finally, with regard to invading Ukraine, Trump boasts that Putin “didn’t do for four years” of his administration, and that “There’s a reason for that.” Indeed there is. The reason is that Putin didn’t need to invade Ukraine during Trump’s occupation of the White House. Putin’s goal was to prohibit Ukraine from joining NATO and to weaken the Western alliance. But Trump was doing that for him. Trump was Putin’s representative in Washington, and it would have been counterproductive, from Putin’s perspective, to mess that up. It was only after Trump was sent packing that Putin deemed it necessary to go through with the invasion.

There is abundant evidence of Trump’s criminal treachery, even without his admissions. Hopefully Congress and the Department of Justice are paying attention and quietly putting together a case for indicting and prosecuting him. Time will tell.

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.

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.

Dementia-Addled Trump Descends Into Gibberish When Hannity Asks What He Would Do About Inflation

Poor Donald Trump. By his own account he is the world’s biggest victim. While he puts on airs of being a dominant alpha male, he whines like a colicky infant whenever anyone directs even the gentlest criticism at him. He literally bragged that he is the most fabulous whiner.”

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

Trump took a break from headlining his increasingly unpopular MAGA Cult Tour to visit with his BFF Sean Hannity on Wednesday. He could not have asked for a friendlier venue than the Fox News Primetime Trump-Fluffing Hour with a host who is best known for cravenly kissing his, let’s say ring.

Nevertheless, Trump managed to humiliate himself with his unartful dodge of a question that should have been a “gimme.” That’s surely what Hannity intended. But Trump is too cognitively deficient to field even a softball from a slobbering sycophant. Hannity set up the question by maligning President Biden and lying about the state of the economy. And that produced the following hysterical response to Hannity’s inquiry about inflation (video below):

Hannity: If you’re president, what would you do?
Trump: So what you’re saying sounds all very easy and sounds very simple, not actually that simple, but I will tell you that this is like the biggest tax increase in history. If you look at what inflation is doing, and I saw a number today that wages can go up, but they’re nowhere near what’s being taken out of families by pure inflation. Just the cost of bread, the cost of gas, the cost of gasoline, the cost of everything. Everything is up.”

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? So far, Trump hasn’t gotten anywhere near that. But he is regurgitating the rote Republican response that somehow Biden is responsible for inflation, despite the fact that it is occurring throughout the world due to multiple factors, including COVID and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Trump (cont’d): “And supply chain. You go to stores and they’re half empty. Many stores they can’t get products. They can’t get anything. You go to luxury stores or non-luxury stores, supermarkets, and the shelves are half there. And nobody’s ever seen it. We didn’t even have to discuss supply chain during my administration. Because it was a perfect moving machine. It was beautiful. We created the greatest economy in the history of the world. We created an economy that was better than any economy in history.”

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? But still no coherent solutions from Trump. However, he does demonstrate that he hasn’t been in a supermarket lately, where the shelves are pretty full. He also seems to have forgotten how the supply chain was disrupted during his occupation of the White House, when common consumer products like toilet paper were nowhere to be seen. And businesses were shuttered because he refused to take the advice of doctors and epidemiologists to contain the pandemic. His “beautiful,” “perfect moving machine” resulted in the first presidency in decades to have fewer jobs at the end than when it began.

Trump (cont’d): “Then we got hit by the ‘China’ virus, and after the ‘China’ virus we did one of the best jobs in the world of doing everything including Operation Warp Speed and everything that that entailed. The therapeutics, the vaccines, everything we did and then they messed it up with the mandates, and they absolutely were killing our country with the mandates which should have never happened. It’s just so sad to hear because this was all a self-inflicted wound from inflation to the loss of energy independence. And now add to that what’s going on in Ukraine. That’s genocide. What’s happening in Ukraine, people have never seen anything like that before.

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? And there you have it. The entire, interminable, rambling rant never touched on the substance of the question. That’s because Trump has no friggin’ idea what to do about inflation. Just as he has no friggin’ idea what to do about Ukraine. But he does rage against common sense measures to protect people from a deadly virus, even as he tries to take credit for it.

Trump continues to prove that his ignorance has no bounds. He doesn’t even have the ability to fake it when asked questions that should have been anticipated and prepared for. Then again, he doesn’t need to worry about toadies like Hannity asking any follow up questions, or even expecting a relevant, comprehensible answer. Everyone around Trump just accepts, and worse, nurtures his decaying mental state. And the threat of anyone with his degree of dementia holding any position of power in the future is unthinkably horrifying.

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.

Click here to Tweet this article

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.

Trump’s Twitter Proxy Implies Biden is Mentally Unsound for Referring to Notes, But Guess What?

The question of President Biden’s fitness to serve has been a core feature of the Fox News campaign of smears and character assassination from before Biden was even inaugurated. Never mind that a significant majority of the American people concluded by their votes that Biden was not only fit, but more mentally sound than Donald Trump according to a Fox News poll.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

That affirmation by the people, however, has not deterred Fox News, and the Trump-addled Republican Party it speaks for, from persisting in their malicious misrepresentations.

RELATED: Hannity’s Infantile Anti-Biden Tweet Draws a Scorching Backlash Against Trump

On Tuesday morning, Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill posted a tweet that said only “25th amendment,” a reference to the constitutional amendment providing for relieving a mentally incompetent president from his duties. The post also retweeted a Republican operative’s photo of Biden holding some notes he used during a press conference.

Let’s set aside the assertion in the tweet that Biden “screwed up,” because there’s no evidence of that in the tweet. To the contrary, it shows that Biden accurately conveyed what his notes said about his previous comment that the genocidal butcher Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.” Biden maintained that he “was expressing the moral outrage I felt towards the actions of this man,” and that he “was not articulating a change in policy.” It was a message that he also delivered in response to a “silly” question by Fox’s Peter Doocy later the same day.

Nevertheless, according these Trump tongue waggers, Biden’s use of notes indicates some sort of cognitive failure. But what makes this all the more preposterous and hypocritical is that Trump himself frequently used similar notes. Here’s one where he required a cheat sheet to remind to show sympathy for victims a mass shooting:

So Trump needed this reminder to tell these mourners that “I hear you.” Really? And then there was the time that Trump needed notes to express his racist and misogynistic hatred for some Democratic women in Congress. Including his opinion that these American citizens should leave the country, saying that “if you are not happy here, you can leave.”

Finally, Trump needed a written reminder about how to reply to the fact that he extorted Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy in an effort to manufacture dirt on then-candidate Joe Biden. It was what he was impeached for, the first time. His notes even included him repeating himself:

“I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky — President Zelensky to do the right thing. This is the final word from the president of the United States: I want nothing.”

Of course, Fox News joined in on this Biden bashing with a story entitled “Biden caught using cue cards in trying to paper over Ukraine gaffe about ousting Putin.” Needless to say, Fox’s story never mentioned all the times that Trump also used “cue cards” when dispensing his lies. And Tucker Carlson devoted a segment on his Monday night program to calling for the 25th Amendment to be used against Biden. He ranted that…

“Uncontrollable flashes of anger are common among people who are aging, particularly among men, and they often accompany senility. Losing it is a very frustrating experience and your heart goes out to anyone who is.”

Do you suppose that Carlson recognizes that his criticism fits Trump better than it does Biden? Trump is a walking fount of incessant and unfiltered anger. While Biden is known for his composure and calm rationality. If anyone was a candidate for the 25th Amendment, it was Donald Trump. And, more troubling, it still is, as he makes noises about running again in 2024.

If anything, Trump has gotten even worse, as he continues to rage about the 2020 election and the size of the shrinking crowds at his cult rallies. Perhaps he should get someone to write notes for him that actually reflect reality. Because he’s definitely not aware of it himself.

Biden Mocks ‘Silly’ Peter Doocy of Fox News for Asking Him to Divulge US Response to Russian War Crimes

Nothing thrills Fox News more than latching unto random remarks by President Biden that they can deceptively misrepresent as controversial, out of context sentence fragments to make him look bad. It’s a core component of what Fox regards as journalism. They appear to have a well staffed “gaffe” division that does nothing else but seek out these phony oratorical opportunities.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

On Monday morning it was Peter Doocy’s turn to fire a barrage of these alleged bloopers at Biden. The President was returning from Poland where he had honored American soldiers aiding Ukraine in their defense against the Russian invasion. It was a productive trip that reinforced the NATO alliance and its commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty. But the media – particularly Fox News and others on the right – seemed fixated on a petty gaffe wherein Biden said what most of the world was thinking: that the heinous butcher Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.”

RELATED: Fox News Howls Hypocritically Over Biden Correctly Calling Peter Doocy a ‘Stupid Son of a B*tch’

That off the cuff comment sparked a firestorm of faux controversy about whether Biden was calling for regime change in Russia. But it was only a portion of the scandal mongering engaged in by Doocy. When called on by Biden at the press conference, the following exchange took place (video below):

Biden: I know you’re gonna ask a really nice question.
Doocy: Well, it’s an important question, I think. Are you worried that other leaders in the world are gonna start to doubt that America is back if some of these big things that you say on the world stage keep getting walked back?
Biden: What’s getting walked back?
Doocy: You made it sound like, just in these last couple of days, It sounded like you told the U.S. troops they were going to Ukraine. It sounded like you said it was possible the U.S. would use a chemical weapon. And It sounded like you were calling for regime change in Russia.

Notice that Doocy repeatedly referred to things he said “sounded like” something to be worried about. That’s your first clue that he was making up his outrage and basing it entirely on his spin. And the result that he implied was that world leaders would be put off by it. To the contrary, most foreign policy experts considered the trip an unqualified success. Biden responded to Doocy’s questions saying that…

Biden: None of those three occurred. You interpret the language that way. I was talking to the troops, we were talking about helping train the Ukrainian troops that are in Poland. That’s what the context is. I sat there with those guys for a couple of hours. That’s what we talked about.
Doocy: So when you said “You’re going to see when you’re there…”
Biden: I was referring to being with and talking with the Ukrainian troops that were in Poland.
Doocy: And when you said a chemical weapon used by Russia would trigger a response in kind?
Biden: It would trigger a significant response.
Doocy: What does that mean?
Biden: I’m not going to tell you. Why would I tell you? You’ve gotta be silly.
Doocy: The world wants to know.
Biden: The world wants to know a lot of things. I’m not telling them what the response would be. Then Russia knows the response.

Biden was pretty gentle with Doocy, by merely calling his question “silly.” He could have said it was “idiotic,” or “dangerous,” or otherwise astonishingly foolish to think that any President would disclose such privileged information in a televised press conference. But you can rest assured that when Fox News reports this they will characterize Biden as being snippy and disrespectful to the press. Never mind that they they adored Trump when he maligned the media as “fake” and “the enemy of the people,” and even fantasized about getting rid of them like Putin does.

Fox News Spurns Ukrainians Coming to the US Because ‘They’re Doing Great for a Group of War Refugees’

From the onset of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, Fox News has staked out a deplorable, inhumane, and anti-American position in favor of Vladimir Putin’s genocidal assault on a peaceful neighbor. It’s been so blatant that Russia’s foreign minister went out of his way to praise the network saying that “only Fox News is trying to present some alternative point of view.”

Fox News Sad

Praise for Putin is not, however, an “alternative view” on Fox News. It is the official editorial doctrine of the network and its most watched programs. Tucker Carlson has argued fiercely in support of Russia over Ukraine, and more specifically – and despicably – in favor of Putin continuing his reign of brutal tyranny.

Not to be outdone, Carlson’s fellow hate monger, Laura Ingraham, presided over a profoundly insensitive segment on Friday night’s episode of her White Nationalist Hour. In a discussion about the refugee crisis stemming from the war in Ukraine, Ingraham interviewed Todd Bensman of the far-right, racist, and notoriously anti-immigrant Center for Immigration Studies. Ingraham began her loathsome discourse with a wholly disingenuous appeal for compassion (video below):

“The Biden administration announced yesterday that we would welcome 100,000 Ukrainian refugees. Obviously, our hearts break for the people in Ukraine. It is absolutely horrific what has happened to them. But is bringing them all the way to the United States in their best interest? And what about the U.S. taxpayers?”

It is, indeed “horrific” what has happened to the Ukrainian people, which is the direct result of the foreign policy advocated by Fox News. Ingraham went on to preface her first question with the assertion that it is “a fable that these Ukrainian war refugees desperately need American sanctuary.” Benson replied that…

“There’s really no reason whatsoever for Ukrainians to be coming to our border or for us to be bringing in huge swells, numbers of Ukrainians here. They’re doing great for a group of war refugees.”

WTF? The three million plus refugees pouring into Poland and other nations are suffering unimaginable hardships, despite the goodhearted intentions of the countries welcoming them. They are living in tents, if they’re lucky, and are struggling to obtain food, medicine, and other necessities. How is that by any stretch of a diseased imagination “doing great”? Bensman went on to say that…

“It’s utterly unnecessary to do this. I understand the plight, I think we all understand, that these are definitely a victimized nationality. But remember, we also have a lot of Ukrainians smuggling or flying into Mexico and coming up to our southern border. That’s the one I worry about the most, because our southern border is utterly collapsing right now.”

So in addition to trivializing the misery of the Ukrainian refugees, Bensman managed to twist this discussion into one of Fox’s favorite right-wing propaganda topics, America’s southern border. He seems to be arguing that we still need a border wall to keep out the Ukrainians. However, he’s actually making a good case for more compassion for the Latin American refugees who are also fleeing hostilities and poverty in their home countries.

Something that both Ingraham and Bensman have neglected to consider are the reasons that the U.S. is offering to help Ukrainians. Those reasons are clearly stated in the White House Fact Sheet on the subject, if they had bothered to read it:

“While we expect many Ukrainians will choose to remain in Europe close to family and their homes in Ukraine, today, the United States is announcing plans to welcome up to 100,000 Ukrainians and others fleeing Russia’s aggression through the full range of legal pathways, including the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. In particular, we are working to expand and develop new programs with a focus on welcoming Ukrainians who have family members in the United States.”

So this policy seeks to take some of the burden off of Ukraine’s neighbors who are already doing so much to help. But in addition to that, it is uniting refugees with family members in the U.S. Not that that is something that Fox News or Republicans give a damn about considering their record of ripping families from south of the border apart. It’s all just a continuation of the right’s platform of hate and division. And it’s no less than what we expect of them.
