According to the head the Russia Today (RT), Tucker Carlson is now trying to line up an interview with Vladimir Putin. Whether that’s true or not, or just wishful thinking by the Russian propagandists is beside the point. Pretty sure that Carlson would jump at the chance. The clip that KremlinTV used of Carlson was basically him saying exactly what they say on their show anyway. And Margarita Simonyan is among Tucker’s biggest fans, calling him “the most popular host in all of U.S. history!”

Tucker Carlson has demanded an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to top Kremlin propagandist Margarita Simonyan.
Simonyan, the editor-in-chief of the Russian state-controlled media organization Russia Today (RT), made the comment during a broadcast on state TV channel Russia-1. An excerpt was posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday by Julia Davis, founder of the Russian Media Monitor watchdog group.
Conservative political commentator Carlson appeared to receive a job offer from RT in late April, shortly after Fox News announced it would part ways with the longtime host.
Prior to his departure, which was announced on April 24, he had faced criticism from the left on a number of issues, including his criticism of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his stance on the ongoing war in Ukraine, which had earned him praise among Kremlin propagandists.
During her TV appearance Simonyan praised Carlson, calling him “the most popular host in all of U.S. history.”
