Tucker Carlson went on TV and said something surprising about Russia
Tucker Carlson has been one of the most vocal critics of a military war with Russia.
But Carlson stunned viewers once again.
And Tucker Carlson went on TV and said something surprising about Russia.
Carlson was one of the leading voices in the media predicting that Russian President Vladimir Putin would not invade Ukraine.
In his opening monologue during a recent broadcast, Carlson admitted he was wrong and told viewers he would explain why.
“So, the situation appears to be more chaotic by the day, possibly even spinning out of control,” Carlson stated. “And that, we must be honest, is shocking to us. We’ve been taken by surprise by the whole thing. We’re not the only ones who were, but we’re willing to admit it. The only thing more embarrassing than being wrong in your estimates is pretending that you weren’t. So why didn’t we see this coming, this total loss of control?” Carlson continued.
Carlson explained that when the Biden administration sent Kamala Harris to the Munich Security conference, it was a sign not to take the situation seriously.
“Well, because we assumed that if things were dire, serious people would be involved in fixing them. But we looked up and we saw Kamala Harris involved, and that reassured us. Harris had just come back from Europe where she’d been conducting, quote, ‘diplomacy’ with our allies, and that appeared to be proof this could not really be a big deal,” Carlson added.
Kamala Harris is the biggest failure of a Vice President in recent American history.
Harris doesn’t have any achievements to point to as a success.
In fact, Harris’ top job in the administration is border czar.
And Carlson explained that since Harris was such a failure at securing America’s border, it was absurd to think she could secure Ukraine’s.
‘If the situation in Ukraine had been legitimately serious, if the future of Europe and the world hung in the balance as now so obviously it does, of course the Biden administration would not have sent Kamala Harris to fix it, because that’s not her job. Kamala Harris’ job is to trot down to the Blue Room periodically to greet delegations of Tiktok influencers, or to cut occasional PSAs for Children’s Dental Health Awareness Month, which is in February, so we assumed she’d be working on that right now,” Carlson concluded.
Unlike most cable pundits, Carlson is willing to admit when he is wrong.
But Carlson’s argument boiled down to: if the Biden administration wanted to impress upon people how serious the situation was, they would have sent more serious and accomplished individuals to represent America on the global stage.
