Tucker Carlson Gets Trashed Online After Saying He’s ‘Rooting For Russia’

Right-wing pundit host Tucker Carlson is being dragged all over the internet after saying on his Fox News show that he’s “rooting for Russia” in the conflict with Ukraine, a U.S. ally.

“Why do I care what is going on in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia?” the Fox News host asked his guest, former Clinton adviser Richard Goodstein.

“I’m serious,” Carlson declared. “Why shouldn’t I root for Russia? Which I am.”

Goodstein had been saying that Russia attacked Ukraine, explaining that “people are dying on the front lines.”

Over 14,000 Ukrainians have been slaughtered in the war with Russia.

After social media outrage, The Daily Beast noted, Carlson tried to backtrack his comments, claiming he had been kidding when he said he was “serious.”

“Before we go, earlier in the show I noted I was rooting for Russia in the contest between Russia and Ukraine,” Carlson told his Fox News viewers, “Of course, I’m joking. I’m only rooting for America—mocking the obsession many on the left have. Ha!”
