Tucker Carlson is infecting the minds of Republicans over Vladimir Putin, former UK PM Boris Johnson says
Boris Johnson accused Tucker Carlson of infecting people’s minds with “bad ideas” about Putin.
The former UK prime minister said Republicans seem to be “intimidated” by Carlson’s perspective.
The Fox News host has echoed Kremlin talking points, whereas Johnson has been a fierce defender of Ukraine.
“Bad ideas are getting into, starting to infect the thinking around the world about what Putin stands for, what he believes in, it’s a disaster,” Johnson said.
“He stands for war, aggression, systematic murder, rape, and destruction. That’s what he stands for.”
Both before and after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Carlson has been accused of parroting Kremlin talking points.
In fact, according to Mother Jones’ reporting on a leaked war memo, back in March 2022, the Kremlin instructed Russian state media to feature Carlson “as much as possible” because of his criticism of the US and NATO’s role in Ukraine.
