Tucker Carlson's first episode of his ten-minute new show Tucker on Twitter started off strong but went off the rails quick with talk about how an alleged "whistleblower's" unproven claims that the US government recovered alien craft proves that "UFOs are actually real" and "apparently so is extraterrestrial life."
Carlson opened his show by talking about the destruction of the Nova Kakhovka Dam and highlighting how Ukraine revealed last year that they had plans to destroy the dam.
He played the edited clip of Lindsey Graham praising US aid to Ukraine as "the best money we've ever spent" and celebrating that "Russians are dying" but didn't note that it was edited (it's been a full week since it went viral and was corrected).
Rather humorously, Carlson described Zelensky as "sweaty and rat-like, a comedian turned oligarch, a persecutor of Christians, a friend of BlackRock" (for which he was immediately accused of "anti-Semitism").
"But don't believe your own eyes. Actually, Mr. Zelensky is a very good man," Carlson said. "Of all the people in the world, our shifty, dead-eyed Ukrainian friend in the tracksuit is uniquely incapable of blowing up a dam. He's literally a living saint, a man in whom there is no sin."
He went on to criticize Nikki Haley for shilling for the war on CNN, chide the media for spreading propaganda and ask:
"What's happened to the hundreds of billions of US dollars we've sent to Ukraine?""Not only are the media not interested in any of this," Carlson said, "they're actively hostile to anybody who is."
"In journalism, curiosity is the greatest crime," he noted.
Unfortunately, Carlson didn't set out to answer any of those questions himself.
Instead, he talked about purported "whistleblower" David Charles Grusch -- a former intelligence official -- and how he came forward to claim the US government has retrieved alien craft and "otherworldly remains" from a "non-human species."
"That's what the former Intel officer revealed, and it was clear he was telling the truth," Carlson said. "In other words, UFOs are actually real, and apparently so is extraterrestrial life. Now, in a normal country, this news would qualify as a bombshell -- the story of the millennium. But in our country, it doesn't."
He criticized the Washington Post and New York Times for not running the story even though we now know thanks to Grusch that there's an "alien species" that "is flying hypersonic aircraft over our cities."
I was hoping Carlson would produce more shows full of absolute fire like he did during the BLM riots when he was getting the best ratings of his career but if this episode is any indicator, it appears we're just going to get more of his own ice-cold "hot takes."
How much of Tucker Carlson's show at its prime was just his lead writer Blake Neff boiling down the collective wit, wisdom and memes of the AutoAdmit forum?
Seeing as how his show declined precipitously after Neff was canceled and fired, it seems like almost all of it.
Hopefully, Carlson answers the questions he asked about Epstein, 9/11, JFK and BLM and produces better content in future episodes. If his Twitter show is just a less fact-checked version of Tucker Carlson Tonight, I can't really see the draw.
