Tucker Carlson has launched his much-anticipated Twitter show, publishing a 10-minute clip full of conspiracy theories, attacks on Ukraine, and rants about the ignorance of most Americans.
‘By this point, it’s possible American citizens are the least informed people in the world,’ he said.
Carlson began ‘Episode 1’, as he titled it, by discussing Ukraine, and the attack on Tuesday morning on the dam.
‘This morning it looks like someone blew up the Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine,’ he said.
Ukraine said Russia had committed a deliberate war crime in blowing up the Soviet-era dam, which powered a hydroelectric station. The Kremlin blamed Ukraine, saying it was trying to distract from the launch of a major counteroffensive Moscow says is faltering.
Carlson took the side of Russia, as he frequently does – arguing that it was not in their interests to destroy the dam.
He said many people assumed it was President Vladimir Putin who ordered the dam be blown up, then added: ‘Oh, but that is where you are wrong, Mr and Mrs Cable News Consumer.’
Tucker Carlson on Tuesday debuted his eagerly-anticipated Twitter show
Carlson pointed out that the dam was in Russian territory, captured in the early days of the war in the spring of 2022, and therefore it would be as if ‘Putin attacked himself’.
The damage, however, is to Ukrainian lands, and 1,300 people have been evacuated: 80 settlements are at risk of flooding.
Carlson continued, deep with sarcasm: ‘We can say for a dead certain fact that Zelensky was not involved. He couldn’t have been.
