Twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has smeared leading independent news reporter Tucker Carlson as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “useful idiot.”
During a Wednesday interview on MSNBC’s “Alex Wagner Tonight,” Clinton also claimed that Carlson is Putin’s “puppy dog.”
The former first lady was responding to Carslon’s highly-anticipated first-of-a-kind interview with the Russian leader.
As Slay News reported, Carlson confirmed the interview earlier this week after months of speculation.
For the first time since war broke out in Ukraine almost two years ago, citizens in English-speaking nations will get to hear Putin’s perspective when Carlson publishes his groundbreaking interview.
However, the news has sparked outrage among globalists and leftist political and corporate media figures around the world.
Wagner said to Hillary:
“Tucker Carlson is in Moscow right now interviewing Vladimir Putin.
“The first American – I’ll say – journalist to interview Putin since the war in Ukraine began.
“What does not tell you about Tucker Carlson and right-wing media and also Vladimir Putin?”
In remarks that make for a difficult viewing for patriots who see through Hillary’s agenda, Clinton said:
“Well, it shows me what I think we’ve all known.
“He’s what is called a useful idiot.
“I mean, if you actually read translations of what’s being said on Russian media, they make fun of him.
“I mean, he’s like a puppy dog,” Hillary claimed.
“You know, somehow, after having been fired from so many outlets and the United States, he– I would not be surprised if he emerges with a contract with a Russian outlet because he is a useful idiot.”
NEW: Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton calls Tucker Carlson a “useful idiot” and a “puppy dog.”
Hillary is mad that a journalist is doing journalism.
“He's like a puppy dog. You know? He somehow has been fired from so many outlets in the United States.”

Carlson’s interview with Putin is expected to break the Internet when it’s soon released.
In announcing the interview, Carlson said:
“There are risks to conducting an interview like this, obviously.
“So we’ve thought about it carefully over many months.
“Two years into a war that is reshaping the entire world, most Americans are not informed.
“Most Americans have no idea why Putin invaded Ukraine or what his goals are now,” he said.
“We are not here because we love Vladimir Putin…
“We are not encouraging you to agree with what Putin may say in this interview, but we are urging you to watch it.
“You should know as much as you can.”
