Fox News' Tucker Carlson and former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) have repeatedly defended Russian President Vladamir Putin and it appears their actions have granted them applause from the Kremlin and Russian state media.

Last week, Gabbard was featured during a segment on Russian state television where her remarks were referenced by renowned Putin supporter, Vladimir Soloviev.

Per Julia Davis, a Russian media analyst and columnist for The Daily Beast, Soloviev referred to Gabbard, a former Democratic U.S. presidential candidate as “our girlfriend Tulsi." The segment then shifted to a clip of Gabbard's recent appearance on Fox News.

Following the clip, one panelist reportedly asked if Gabbard is "some sort of Russian agent?” According to Davis' translation of the Russian discussion, she is.

During her appearance on Fox News on Monday, March 28, Gabbard accused President Joe Biden of attempting a plot to have Putin removed from power as she claimed he was advocating for "regime change in Russia through 'economic warfare.'”

"They are doing so by waging this modern-day siege against Russia, isolating, containing, destroying their economy, starving the Russian people in the hope that the Russian people or the military will rise up and revolt and overthrow their government and get rid of Putin,” Gabbard said during a portion of the excerpt that aired in Russia.

Gabbard's remarks came shortly after Biden's speech in Poland. On Sunday, March 27, according to Yahoo! News, Biden delivered a speech in Poland saying "that Putin 'cannot remain in power' in off-script remarks during a speech in Poland." However, White House officials swiftly released a statement to offer clarity on Biden's remarks. According to White House officials, the president was not pushing for Russian regime change but insisted that “Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region.”

However, Gabbard argues that “'it was not a gaffe at all' and Biden is 'lying' about his true motives."
