Hillary Clinton, who spent years as secretary of state trying to “reset” relations with Russia, claims Tucker Carlson's interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin was proof that he is a “useful idiot.”
Carlson's interview has drawn the ire of left-wing politicians who believe the war with Ukraine is on par with the American Revolution and the media, who are jealous that they cannot secure an interview with an important world leader themselves.
The interview, which will be broadcast on Thursday, will take place in Moscow and will be the first one-on-one interview with a Western journalist since the start of the Ukrainian war in 2022.
Carlson has given his reasons for meeting with Putin, saying it is partly because he believes the Western media is lying to the American people, an idea that cannot be denied on almost every topic that has hit broadcast screens in the past decade.
“Their media is corrupt. “They are lying to their readers and viewers, and they do so mostly by omission,” Carlson said.
He added: “We are not here because we love Vladimir Putin.” “We are here because we love America, and we want it to remain prosperous and free.”

“This is why we do it: because it is our job. We are in the business of journalism, and our job is to inform people.”

Clinton criticizes Carlson for his interview with Putin
To prove Carlson's point, Clinton went directly to the safe space of a far-left media outlet to complain about the interview with Putin.
Speaking to Alex Wagner on MSNBC, the former first lady criticized Carlson for “echoing” Putin, which is exactly what leftists say about ordinary Americans who oppose sending their tax dollars to fund a war that does no good. United State.
“He's saying things that aren't true. He's repeating Vladimir Putin's bunch of lies about Ukraine, so I don't understand why Putin would do that.” won't “I’m interviewing him,” she said.
The irony of Clinton complaining about the opportunity to be interviewed because the host supposedly “parrots” a network that constantly repeats its own lies is not lost on anyone.
“If you actually read translations of what's being said in the Russian media, they're making fun of him… He's like a little dog,” Clinton said. He added: “I wouldn't be surprised if he comes up with a contract with a Russian media outlet, because he's a useful idiot.”

Clinton and the infamous “reset” button
If the word “projection” had to be defined in a classroom, the teacher might do well to show this clip of Clinton complaining about Carlson's interview with Putin.
It's a very intense attempt to reach into the past and remind readers of Clinton's vast web of lies as she tries to persuade the American people of the opposite truth—think “vast right-wing conspiracy,” Russian collusion, and Bosnian snipers.
There is no lie that you would not want to marry.
But here she is on MSNBC, owned by NBCUniversal, which also owns NBC News, complaining that interviewing Putin is contrary to American interests and evidence that the interviewer is a “useful idiot.”
Do you have any idea who NBC News interviewed in 2021? You guessed it – Putin.

Of course, Clinton is relying on propaganda outlets like MSNBC to rewrite her long history as Russia's useful idiot.
During a 2010 interview – on Russian television – then US Secretary of State Clinton said that the goal of the Obama administration at the time was to “strengthen Russia.”

Two years later, Clinton appeared again on television and announced that the Obama administration viewed Russia as an ally.
“In many of the areas where we work to solve problems, Russia has been an ally,” Clinton said at the time.
“So I think it's a bit old-fashioned to look back rather than be realistic about what we agree on and what we don't agree on, but to look for ways to bridge differences and then maximize cooperation,” she continued.
Maximize cooperation? It looks like a Russian puppy dog.
By the way, Putin was Prime Minister of Russia at that time.
It is also worth noting that it was Clinton and Obama who issued the “reset” button on Russian relations, which Clinton previously claimed was a “brilliant” plan, and who, according to the Obama administration’s chief cyber official, Michael Daniel, issued a “stand down” order against Russian cyber attacks in 2016.
It's funny that Clinton wanted so badly to work with Russia when Obama was in power and when she assumed the White House was hers in 2016, but now that she's failed twice in the presidential election, anyone looking for the truth is doing his bidding.
It's time to support and share the sources you trust.
