Tucker Carlson launches first episode of "Tucker On Twitter" and suggests Ukraine destroyed its own dam

"Any fair person would conclude that the Ukrainians probably blew it up," he opined during his new show.

Prominent political commentator Tucker Carlson launched the first episode of his new Twitter show on Tuesday with controversial comments about the destruction of a dam in southern Ukraine and criticism of the media.

The former Fox News anchor posted the first video from “Tucker on Twitter” as he had promised a few weeks ago. The episode of his new show started bluntly with a concise introduction and then launched straight into talking about the dam attack. “Hi, it’s Tucker Carlson! This morning it looks like somebody blew up the Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine,” he began in the video that lasted just over 10 minutes.

Carlson’s opinion on the attack

The presenter exposed that this attack “puts the largest nuclear reactor in Europe in danger,” so if it was done intentionally, it goes from being a “military tactic” to an act of “terrorism.

He also criticized the “American media” for accusing the Russians of sabotaging “their own infrastructure.” “Blowing up the dam may be bad for Ukraine, but it hurts Russia more. And for that reason, the Ukrainian government has considered destroying it (...) Any fair person would conclude that the Ukrainians probably blew it up,” he opined.

The “most serious” crime in journalism

During the program, Carlson took the opportunity to mention some issues that he believes the media prefers to ignore, such as the mysteries surrounding Jeffrey Epstein, the millions of dollars sent to Ukraine, the funding of the Black Lives Matter movement and what happened on September 11.

“Not only are the media not interested in any of this, they are actively hostile to anybody who is. In journalism, curiosity is the gravest crime,” he criticized.

Concluding the program

The presenter culminated the first episode by recalling that the reason he decided to use Twitter as a platform for his new program is that he believes there is freedom of expression and assured that in case it is not true, he will not continue to use it. “If that turns out to be false, we’ll leave. But in the meantime, we are grateful to be here,” he said, promising to return with more “very soon.”
