Ralph Peters Likens Tucker Carlson to Charles Lindbergh, Sending Interview off the Rails
CARLSON: "It’s just hard to see why — I’m not vouching for Putin’s character, he seems like a shady guy, a strongman for sure, wouldn't want to live there."
PETERS: "He's a killer."
CARLSON: "Hard to see why he’s a threat to us. How many wars can we fight at once? How many people can we be in opposition to at once? Why not just accept that people who are bad people share interests and side with them?"
PETERS: “You sound like Charles Lindbergh in 1938 saying, ‘Hitler hasn’t attacked us.’”
CARLSON: “I beg your pardon? Slow down for a minute. You cannot compare me to somebody who makes apologies for Hitler. And I don't think Putin is comparable to Hitler.”
PETERS: "I think Putin is —"
CARLSON: "It's a gross overstatement. I think it's insane."
PETERS: "Fine. You can think it’s insane all you want."
CARLSON: "You just compared me to a Nazi apologist because I asked a simple question, which is, why does it contravene American interests to a common cause with a group that's trying to kill ISIS?"
