Tucker Carlson kicks off new Twitter show, and Elon Musk approves
On Tuesday evening, Carlson posted a 10-and-half-minute clip for his show titled "Tucker On Twitter," which consisted of him giving a monologue on a small range of issues.
He spoke about the Ukraine and Russia conflict and called the recent attack on the Kakhovka dam an act of terrorism. He went on to describe Ukraine's leader Volodymyr Zelensky as "sweaty and rat-like" and "a persecutor of Christians."
Carlson showed a doctored video of Representative Lindsey Graham saying, "Russians are dying, it's the best money we've ever spent."
He also went on to talk about UFOs and claimed that extraterrestrial life is definitely real.
Elon Musk shows his support for Tucker On Twitter
"Would be great to have shows from all parts of the political spectrum on this platform!" he said.
Since Musk bought Twitter last year, he has been on a free speech crusade and has publicly aligned himself with far-right pundits and politicians.
While the Tesla founder says he welcomes those with opposing opinions to also make content, he has consistently used his account to share and bolster far-right content.
Carlson's first episode has already amassed over 80 million views and doesn't seem to be slowing down.
