Watch: Tucker Carlson has a bizarre new way of blaming the US for the Russian invasion
As part of his continued effort to blame someone other than himself for his botched commentary on the war between Russia and Ukraine, Fox News' Tucker Carlson is going to great lengths to blame the United States' Democratic-run White House for Russian President Vladamir Putin's actions.
On Monday, March 7, Carlson pulled a quote from Vice President Kamala Harris' speech at her news conference in Munich, Germany back in February. “Kamala Harris encouraged Ukraine to become a member of NATO. Quote, ‘I appreciate and admire President Zelenskyy’s desire to join NATO,’” Carlson said.
“Message: Up yours, Vladimir Putin, go ahead and invade Ukraine,” Carlson continued. “And, of course, Vladimir Putin did that just days later. So the invasion was no surprise to the Biden administration. They knew that would happen. That was the point of the exercise."
“We watched all this happen, we missed it. How? Honestly because it was insane and therefore very hard to take seriously. Why in the world would the United States intentionally seek war with Russia? How could we possibly benefit from that war? We still don’t know the answer to that question," he added.
Although President Joe Biden repeatedly issued warnings saying that a Russian invasion of Ukraine was likely and that the United States would react “swiftly and decisively,” Carlson appeared to have omitted that from his commentary.
Carlson's latest long-shot attempt comes just days after he backpedaled and admitted that his previous remarks on the Russian invasion were inaccurate. In fact, the conservative host's inaccurate remarks have been taken as excerpts and featured in critical ads highlighting his mistakes.
Take a minute to listen. @TuckerCarlson is actually accusing America of starting this war. Not Putin. Not Russia. But America. It\u2019s our fault. He\u2019s blaming America for launching this war. Tucker channels today\u2019s GOP. And today\u2019s GOP is the new \u201cblame America\u201d party.https://twitter.com/Acyn/status/1501002245457862659\u00a0\u2026— Joe Walsh (@Joe Walsh) 1646704572
Although Carlson has claimed on multiple occasions that he was taken by surprise when Russia invaded Ukraine, his argument of “Why didn’t we see this coming?” is a futile one because there were repeated warnings about the possibility of it happening.
