Top Kremlin propagandist tells Tucker Carlson he should run for president and 'You are always welcome in Russia and Moscow'
- Vladimir Solovyov is a notorious Russian propagandist.
- He says Tucker Carlson should run for President of the United States.
The US Department of State describes Vladimir Solovyov as perhaps "the most energetic Kremlin propagandist around today."
Solovyov is also, apparently, a Tucker Carlson fan.
On Telegram, Solovyov says that after he learned that Carlson and his long time cable network, Fox News, were parting ways, he sent him an email.
"You have our admiration and support in any endeavor you choose for yourself next, be it running for president of the United States (which you should totally do, by the way) or making an independent media project. We'll happily offer you a job if you wish to carry on as a presenter and host!"
Soloyvov also welcomed Carlson to visit Russia.

RT, the Russian state television network focused on a US audience, also appeared to offer Carlson a job today.
Carlson is popular with Russian propagandists because, back when he had a show on Fox News, he would regularly use his air time to share points of view on the war in Ukraine that were eerily similar to Russian talking points.
Last year, he said the war, which was started by Russia when it invaded a neighboring independent country, was "designed to cause regime change in Moscow" and was also "payback for the 2016 election."
In March 2022, Mother Jones obtained a directive the Kremlin gave to state-friendly media outlets in Russia: "It is essential to use as much as possible fragments of broadcasts of the popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson."
Now that Carlson doesn't have a show, that directive will be more difficult for the next little while. But many of Carlson's American fans are very hopeful he'll end up on OANN or Newsmax soon.
