Fox News host Tucker Carlson is slamming President Joe Biden’s administration’s attempt to get people to believe that “Putin’s price hike” is to blame for soaring inflation and gas prices.
“Putin’s price hike? So I guess the question is how much dumb propaganda do they think we’re going to believe? To think it’s Putin’s price hike, you’d have to be like a moron. Our central bank has made the dollar near worthless and they’ve been doing this for like more than a decade,” Carlson said.
“You remember Joe Biden’s State of the Union address last month in which he promised he was going to do to Vladimir Putin what he did Corn Pop, he was going to beat him with a chain and destroy the Russian economy and crash the ruble,” he added.
“It would’ve been nice if Biden said I’m going to get Russian troops out of Ukraine and that will help everybody and everybody, including us, would have applauded. But he can’t do that. So instead, he’s going to destroy Russia’s economy but he couldn’t do that even. It turns out the Russian economy is based on commodities, it’s not based on finance, it’s not like our economy,” he continued.
“Biden has never had a real job so he did not know the difference. But it turns out the ruble has bounced back. In fact, it’s slightly more valuable than it was on the day that Russia invaded Ukraine. The economic situation in the United States by contrast is deteriorating fast. Here’s Joe Biden’s publicist today announcing that inflation is about to get worse and Vladimir Putin did it,” Carlson declared.
“Putin’s price hike? So I guess the question is how much dumb propaganda do they think we’re going to believe? To think it’s Putin’s price hike, you’d have to be like a moron. Our central bank has made the dollar near worthless and they’ve been doing this for like more than a decade. So if you think it is Putin’s price hike, I guess they do expect we do think that, but the bottom line is Russia invades Ukraine. It’s appalling. Everyone agrees. But our response to it, does it hurt Putin? No. It hurts the United States. We’re the real victims,” he concluded.
Earlier this month, Carlson argued that it was time for Biden to be removed from office.
During a segment on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host argued that it’s time to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Biden from office after the president has made a slew of comments about Russia, Ukraine, and Russian President Vladimir Putin that have been walked back by the White House.
“The joke is over. Too much is at stake. If there ever was a time — if there was in U.S. history ever a time to invoke the 25th Amendment, it is now. As Joe Biden himself put it, ‘For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.’ For all of our sakes,” Carlson said.
“Uncontrollable flashes of anger are common among people who are aging, particularly among men, and they often accompany senility. Losing it is a very frustrating experience and your heart goes out to anyone who is. We have deep sympathy for anyone in that position, including Joe Biden, but Biden is the president of the United States, and this is the single most volatile moment in the recent history of our country,” Biden said.
“Biden is leading the U.S. toward war, and so it’s fair to assess the effect on the rest of us of his mental and emotional conditions, not simply about age, Biden is 79. Biden is clearly unable to speak with precision. And when you’re president of the United States and the world hangs on your every word, when your words constitute American policy, when you can change American policy, particularly America’s foreign policy simply by saying so, it is essential that you speak the words you intend to speak, that you not get carried away because you’re mad and say something you don’t mean that might threaten the long-term interests of this country, threaten the families and the children of the rest of us and our future, but he is,” he added.
