Earlier this year, completely unprovoked, Russia invaded Ukraine. The vast majority of Americans know that Russia is in the wrong. And while there are many reasons why US forces can’t directly intervene, most citizens are happy to help fund Ukraine’s defense.
Those on the far-right, however, don’t think that Ukraine deserves anything. And that includes Tucker Carlson. During his Wednesday show, the Fox Host pushed for primary candidates for any Republican who voted to aid the invaded country.
“You got to hope that there’s some sincere billionaire out there who’s going to fund a primary challenge against every single one of those Republican senators standing by Mitch McConnell as he said — and we’ll quote again — “I think we all agree the most important thing going on in the world right now is the war in Ukraine.”
No. The most important thing going on in the world right now is the state of your country, the one you’re supposed to run. The people you’re supposed to represent whose lives you’re supposed to care about.”
