Tucker Carlson is back and he may have broken a record on the social media platform Twitter.
He dropped his first episode, and the video has already had over 61 million views.
We also got a little taste of what an unshackled Tucker Carlson looks like because he opened up with the was in Ukraine after the Kakhovka Dam was destroyed.
From the Dailywire:
Part of the dam fell on Tuesday, as well as a nearby hydropower plant, draining the Kakhovka reservoir and causing severe flooding in areas downriver. Ukrainian and Russian emergency crews evacuated thousands of people. Russia and Ukraine have flung accusations at each other over the dam’s failure.
The dam, located in Russian-controlled territory, and reservoir provided fresh water for parts of southern Ukraine and almost all of Crimea, which has been in Russian hands since its annexation by Moscow in 2014. The reservoir also provided water for the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant. While the plant maintains an artificial lake to provide water for its reactors, officials are worried what could happen when the lake runs dry in several months.
“Blowing up the dam may be bad for Ukraine, but it hurts Russia more. And for that reason, the Ukrainian government has considered destroying it,” Carlson said referencing a Washington Post story. The December 2022 report from the Post stated the Ukrainian military has previously considered taking out the dam.
Currently, there is no evidence showing which side took out the dam.
“When the facts start coming in, it becomes much less of a mystery what might have happened to the dam. Any fair person would conclude that the Ukrainians probably blew it up,” Carlson said.
That was when Tucker went after Senator Lindsey Graham and Republican primary presidential candidate Nikki Haley over their support for the Ukraine. He noted that the media and high-profile politicians are accepting narratives before the facts come in.
Not only are the media not interested in any of this, they are actively hostile to anybody who is. In journalism, curiosity is the gravest crime,” Carlson said.
