Let's get this straight again. You believed that Trump wanted to build a hotel in Moscow. Putin needed to give him permission. So Trump said if you let me build a hotel I will let you run the US but you need to get me elected.
That is what you believe.
Or number 2: Putin was going to get Trump elected and if Trump didn't do what Putin wanted he was going to release the pee tape.

Lots of reporters have asked to interview Putin. Not just Tucker.

Christiane Amanpour said this morning that she has requested interviews with Putin multiple times.

That said... that Putin has granted the interview to only Tucker is quite telling.

You just cannot accept the fact that the report Barr released was not what was in the full Mueller report.

Congress could have had the truth if they authorized an Indpendent Counsel investigation, but they didn't because they did not want the truth.

You mean evidence like this?

The findings, including unflinching characterizations of furtive interactions between Trump associates and Russian operatives, echo to a large degree those of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation and appear to repudiate the Republican president's claims that the FBI had no basis to investigate whether his campaign was conspiring with Russia.

Among the more striking sections of the report is the committee's description of the close, professional relationship between former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Konstantin Kilimnik, whom the committee describes as a Russian intelligence officer.

It is quite hilarious to read the adlib templates both parties use when someone goes to another country. I remember the GOP's ridiculous insinuations when Rodman was becoming NK's best friend, they looked almost exactly like this op-ed. It's even funnier this time because Putin has already called out Tucker for being what Tucker is, a liar and inept, so you can see the friction there. Yet, Rodman and Un were openly best friends and loved each other.

Did Putin threaten Americans with total annihilation (in less than a hour) on the same day as any of those interviews?

Were we in a "hot" conflict with Putin while he was attacking and killing his neighbors during any of those interviews?

The wars in the USA were started by both corrupt insiders and scheming outsiders who claim to be our ally. None of these so-called allies ever served us. Just as do the crooked politicians that are in their pocket. They scheme and steal money that comes out of what is left of our citizens safety net. We need to purge such destructive alliances and harmful influence. The push for the Ukraine Russia conflict was emblematic of the bad guys.

Tucker isn't perfect but he is not afraid to be provocative and go outside the current box of obedience. Our MSM represents the most harmful threat facing us. They politicized everything and gave us a feeble crooked inept old man that has almost ruined us.

They say he is going to speak to the nation tonight. I blame Obama and Bidens wife for expanding this predicament.

Not afraid to be provocative - that is how he gets his audience.

Outside the current box of obedience - if you replace the word "obedience" with "truth" I'd agree.

But that leads me to ask, why do you seem to equate "obedience" with "truth."

I would have thought that someone as discerning as you seem to be would be able to quickly recognize when someone is ------------ them.

Lets see - civil war, started by conservatives
WW2 - started by extreme conservatives in germany
vietnam - started by conservatives
iraq - lied into by conservatives
afghanastan - started by conservatives, ended by a democrat

I do see a pattern, but it's not the BOTH SIDES pattern you fantasize about.

Holy crappola, Putin is humiliating Tucker in a way that makes you understand why Trump came out of that meeting with Putin with his tail between his legs:

Ron Filipkowski
@RonFilipkowski

At the beginning of the interview, Putin launches into a 25 minute rant of historical reasons why Ukraine should be part of Russia. Tucker tries to interrupt, and is smacked down by Putin who mocks him like his little child.

Tucker asks Putin if he told Viktor Orban if he could have part of Ukraine. Putin says they haven't discussed it, but he has heard that Hungarians in Ukraine would like to be part of Hungary. Tucker then looks very excited for his friend Orban.

This is a hilarious ---- show. Putin is now 28 minutes into his history lesson. This is the 3rd time Tucker tries to interrupt and Putin mocks Tucker for just being an entertainer and not a serious journalist. Tucker tries to fake laugh it off while Putin emasculates him.

Putin is just mocking Tucker at this point. He's tried to interrupt this 30 minute speech 3 times, Putin let him know he better not interrupt again, and Tucker is sitting there in agony with all his questions and he has to listen to this old man ramble worse than Trump.

We are now 29 minutes in to Putin's history lesson, Tucker hasn't been able to get a single question in, and now Putin is up to the presidency of Boris Yeltsin in his lesson.

We are now 36 minutes into Putin's history lesson, he hasn't answered a single question from Tucker, and we are now up to the presidency of George HW Bush.

We are now 42 minutes into Putin's history lesson, he hasn't answered one question from Tucker, and we have reached the year 2008.

46 minutes into his history lesson, Putin stops to mock Tucker for applying to the CIA when he was younger and getting rejected.

49 minutes into Putin's history lesson, Tucker dares once again to try to interrupt to get him to talk about the present day, but Putin isn't having it and goes right back to where he left off in 2014.

Tucker is now 52 minutes into holding this face, since he isn't allowed to talk.

That's all well in good in a democracy, while we still have one, here in America. It's a totally different ballgame in a dictatorship, where Putin is the boss, no questions asked, quite literally apparently.

58 minutes into Putin's history lesson, Tucker thought he was almost up to 2022, but now Putin is back talking about how Ukrainians collaborated with Germany in WWII.

The huge mistake was Tucker thinking he could do a creditable interview with Putin:

Ron Filipkowski
@RonFilipkowski

Tucker is desperate trying to get Putin to say he wants peace to fit Tucker's narrative, but Putin makes it clear that he won't even discuss peace terms until the US cuts off aid to Ukraine forcing them to surrender, which is exactly what Trump said he would do.

What is MAGA to do? Their narrative is Putin=good, China=bad. And Tucker is trying to get Putin to go there. But Putin says people in the US who are trying to make China into their enemy rather than a trading partner are making a huge mistake.

I note that your alias apparently has shied away from answering the simple question I posed in #72...

It seems to be a central theme of your comments, but your comments also seem to be unable to substantiate it.

To repeat...

But that leads me to ask, why do you seem to equate "obedience" with "truth."

Youre still thinking hunters dick pics would have made trump win?

All he had to do was handle covid responsibly and he'd have cruised to re election. He couldn't. So he had to try a coup instead.

The expectation among MAGA voters was that this interview was "going to break the internet." Tucker seemed to think so too.

I do enjoy your replies to my comment. They cause me to think further about what I have posted.

OK...

I'm currently thinking that Mr Carlson had an agenda when he went to that interview.

That he wanted to be provocative because views on his "X video channel" equate to money for him from the advertisers.

I also think that Pres Putin's comments during that interview may not be what Mr Carlson had hoped for.

Yes, I agree. Tucker needed Putin more than Putin needed Tucker.

Putin's smirk. He's just slapping Carlson around for the hell of it.
I know why Carlson wanted this interview: Because he desperately wants to be in the public eye. I'm not sure why Putin agreed to it, other than as a lark so he could lecture an American for two hours.

I believe that I will travel to Tahiti and interview topless Island girls so I can "do their bidding."

He's been a russia agent for years. He knowingly lied to the american public about imaginary election fraud to help keep putin's puppet in power.

Why does MAGA love Putin?

-he says there are no gays in Russia

- there are no women in power

- there are no non-whites in power

-opposition journalists are killed or jailed

-the Russian Orthodox Church is arm of state run by former KGB agents

-elections are performative but not decisive

83 Lamplighter The only reason any journalist (or for that matter any one of us citizens) would feel the need to be "obedient" to govt with speech and opinions is when our freedoms guaranteed by our Bill of Rights are under threat. At that time many would then refer to our govt as fascist and authoritarian.
