The interview has been getting the usual ad hominem pushback from the usual hypocrite shit ball parties such as TYT and Killary, against both of the parties in the interview.
TYT lyingly and as total faggots characterized Tucker's interview as "softball". I see it as just letting Putin talk as he wanted to. Tucker really had no choice. Any harder a push and the interview would be over.
No interviewer in Tucker's position with any sanity would seriously harass Putin even as Vlad was playing college professor on medieval Kievan Rus' geopolitics. (after all, Putin has the gulags and westerners do visit them from time to time.)
Putin was long winded as f*** but he did make a convincing case (after an incredibly dry monologue) that Ukraine was partially Russian in its national makeup, history and population.
I would be incredibly proud to have a president who presented as Putin did - piercingly intelligent, logical, straightforward, able to joke at times, and not demagoguish in the least. A complete, absolute contrast with the feckless, simple minded, ideologically insane fuck face that we have as POTUS.
Seeing Biden's demeanor and actions, seeing the administration's actions in foreign policy, and seeing in contrast Putin's simple self interest in securing that country, clearly the US is the single greatest stumbling block to peace.
