I don’t think those uptight assholes from the 50s could’ve possibly imagine what the Republican party has turned into, especially with a prominent, influential, outright traitor like this as the slick American salesman for Russia.

not even to Putin, who came off as what he is, a head of state surrounded by yes men and who has been driven completely bonkers by the job and thinks he's the reincarnation of all the notable Russian Czars, es0ecially the ones from 500 0r so years ago.

Even Tuck's pro Russian fanboys are looking at this and going "Whaaaa?" as they've tried to soldier on through two hours of Russian boilerplate about destiny and spiritual connections and all that other crap crazy motherfuckers use to justify genocide.

It did little to increase Tuck's relevance as any sort of a journalist since he sat there and did as he was told, rather than asking the questions we'd all like some answers to. I suppsee he didn't want his shorts starched with Novichok.

One takeaway from this non interview, however, is that Putin feels vulnerable for the first time in many years. I can't see him giving this interview with the tamest non reporter on the planet a year ago. He did it now and tried his level best to be persuasive to people who support Russia because they hate Democrats or the ruling parties in their own countries.

Putin's too much of a windbag for that, contrarian nitwits need snappy slogans and buzz words. He failed to deliver, and Tuck failed to conduct any sort of believable performance as an interviewer.

I don't care what Chris says now. He went along with the Fox News propaganda for far too long.
