Earlier that day, Solovyon had interviewed Dimitri Simes, the former president and CEO of Washington foreign policy think tank The Center for the National Interest, who claimed he had tried to help Carlson land an interview with Putin. Solovyon has also recently claimed that actor Steven Seagal was advocating for the interview to take place. Newsweek asked Carlson about the story, but received no immediate response Friday. Solovyon’s claim was also backed up by another Russian propagandist, RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan, who also apparently wanted to see the interview happen. “Tucker is doing a great job. By the way, he’s really asking for an interview with Vladimir Putin,” she said in April, according to Newsweek. “It would be great if someone hears this and gets this message to the president.” For his part, Solovyon believes — or at least claims to believe — that Carlson’s prediction is accurate. “We are on the verge of a global hot war! It’s unavoidable because it benefits everyone!” he said, according to the Daily Beast’s translation. [firefly_poll] “These are the end times!” the talk-show host added in an apparent reference to biblical eschatology. “We should realize this.” Carlson has never publicly confirmed his reported desire to interview the Russian president, Newsweek said, and as previously noted, the former Fox News host did not respond to the outlet’s request for comment Friday. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
Tucker Carlson agrees with Dave Portnoy that Trump should have done the debate, and also (!!) that Biden AND Trump are too old to be president: 👇Portnoy: “Both Trump and Biden are too old.” Tucker: “I agree 100%.” Portnoy: “How are these people running our country?” pic.twitter.com/mACQPh56Nt — Scott Morefield (@SKMorefield) September 1, 2023
