Politics, P*t*n, Propaganda, Puppets, Family, The Bear
Haha, what a joke. The interview starts with Tucker saying "P*t*n is being sincere about what he thinks". I mean I guess it was inevitable that some right wing pundit would eventually do a full on propaganda piece for Russia. The two go hand and hand with their disrespect for law and equality, brazen hypocrisy and never-ending lies. The self-appointed "journalist" Tucker Carlson did a soft-ball propaganda interview of Russian leader P*t*n. I mean Russia couldn't have asked for a better opportunity to lie and misrepresent the truth to the American people and have it delivered by one of American's right wing stooges.
Tucker allows him to ramble on and on about so-called historical justifications (unchecked by Tucker) without questioning the current loss of life and blatant illegal aggression. P*t*n is clearly a skilled spin-doctor and Tr*mp level liar so he controlled the narrative. He made the West seem like the bad guy and Russia just a victim instead of the aggressive bully they actually are. I do believe both the U.S. and Russia are using each other as a justification (as an enemy) to justify defense spending that makes members of each government rich.
Of course the U.S. is officially distancing themselves from this propaganda stunt.
I saw my mom to the airport yesterday. She is off to Mexico for two weeks. Hopefully she enjoys her stay down South. The weather is unseasonably warm here anyway... *shrug*
We started The Bear last night. I came into pretty blind. It is a weird one. I still don't know what to make of it. It is based on a family running a restaurant after the previous owner commits suicide. So there is tension and yelling in nearly every scene. It is well acted. Stand outs for me are of course the lead Jeremy Allen White (Carmy) and Ayo Edebiri (Sydney). It seems like everyone has an agenda and the details are slow to emerge. It is quite a break from Schitt's Creek and our usual fare of murder mystery.
