“It would be great if someone listens and notifies the president about this.”

Carlson revealed during an interview that he has been in talks with Putin’s people about an interview.

WATCH:

The news has triggered a furious backlash from the Left, however.

Some even accused Carlson of being a “traitor” for even considering such an interview.

Others claim Carlson is “Putin’s puppet.”

However, most applauded Carlson’s brave attempt to get Putin’s perspective on the Russia/Ukraine conflict.

If the interview were to materialize, it would undoubtedly pull a huge audience.

Carlson’s interview with President Donald Trump, which was broadcast on Twitter/X last Wednesday, has now been viewed over 260 million times.
