Tucker Carlson Accuses 'Many Republicans' of 'Talking Like Joe Biden'

Share

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is accusing critics of his comments about Russia of parroting the talking points of President Joe Biden.

On Thursday night, Carlson took aim at Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the ranking Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, for claiming his show was an “organ of Russian disinformation.”

He said, “In recent days, McCaul has told a number of people that this show is an organ of Russian disinformation. In other words, not only are we wrong — which is fine — we are disloyal Americans, we’re doing the bidding of a foreign power. That is not fine. That is slander.”

“Unlike Michael McCaul, we are only and narrowly interested in the interests of our own country, that would be the United States where we were born and where we plan to die,” he continued.

Carlson went on:

“What’s interesting is that McCaul’s slander against us, Russian disinformation, is also a well-worn Democratic Party talking point. Joe Biden, for example, calls anything he doesn’t like Russian disinformation…So you have to ask yourself, why are so many Republicans suddenly talking like Joe Biden?”

He claimed, “The answer is because on the big questions, the questions that matter, they agree with each other. And you should know that.”

Carlson has been accused of sharing pro-Russia rhetoric on his show.

Before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, he asked, “Why do I hate Putin so much? Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him? …  Is he making fentanyl? Is he trying to snuff out Christianity? Does he eat dogs?”

“These are fair questions, and the answer to all of them is no. Vladimir Putin didn’t do any of that,” he said.

Russian state media outlets have reportedly been directed to air clips of Carlson’s show by the Kremlin.

Some commentators have suggested that Carlson should be investigated by the Department of Justice or tried by the military.
