Tucker Carlson issues weird warning as he aims to protect Putin
On the Monday, March 28 episode of "Tucker Carlson Tonight," the conservative TV host claimed he's concerned about the possibility of Islamic extremists seizing Russia's nuclear weaponry and using it on the United States if Putin is removed from power.
“So, Russia has a large and restive population of Islamic extremists. Do we think it’s possible that with no one running the country ― because of course we have no chosen successor to Putin ― is it possible, if we did that, that one of those 6,000 nuclear weapons might wind up in the hands of some anti-American terror group and be used against our civilian population here?” he asked. “A nuclear weapon! Well, it’s not just possible, it’s likely.”
'Tucker Carlson is back to pushing Russian propaganda by claiming \u201cit\u2019s likely\u201d that some of Russia\u2019s nuclear weapons will end up in the hands of Islamic terrorist organizations to be used against the US ' (i.e. if Putin is deposed or otherwise removed).https://youtu.be/gVQ3FYcV5QQ— Tim Ireland \ud83d\udc99\u269c\ufe0f\ud83d\udd25\ud83c\udfa4 (@Tim Ireland \ud83d\udc99\u269c\ufe0f\ud83d\udd25\ud83c\udfa4) 1648631110
Carlson's latest remarks follow multiple attempts he's made to defend the Russian president. Since the beginning of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Carlson has echoed talking points from Russian state media circulating Kremlin propaganda. Like other Russian propagandists, Carlson has also made calls for the 25th Amendment to be invoked so President Joe Biden could be removed from office.
During the same segment, Carlson said, "The joke is over. Too much is at stake. If there ever was a time — if there was in U.S. history ever a time to invoke the 25th Amendment, it is now. As Joe Biden himself put it, 'For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power.' For all of our sakes."
Carlson’s bizarre remarks were reportedly in response to Biden's speech made while in Poland. Speaking of Putin, Biden called for Putin to be striped of his presidential powers saying, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”
