Tucker Carlson Was Not Impressed By Zelensky’s Speech, Or His Outfit Choice: He’s ‘Dressed Like The Manager Of A Strip Club’

On Wednesday evening, millions of Americans gathered around their preferred streaming device to hear Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky deliver an impassioned plea in which he asked the U.S. for as much help as we could give him in keeping Vladimir Putin’s mitts off his country. Tears were shed and many in the room were clearly left feeling emotional as a result of the historic visit — well, the people who weren’t being classless by refusing to clap or calling Zelensky a “welfare queen.” Tucker Carlson, meanwhile, went in a bit of a different direction — and, oh man, did he sound like an a**hole.

Zelensky has spent the last 10 months physically fighting for his country, and showing the world that David can trump Goliath. (David, by the way, can also trump Trump.) But here’s the sartorial snark the guy whose bow tie collection was once estimated to be worth $1.5 million let spill out of his mouth:

“The President of Ukraine showed up at the WH dressed like the manager of a strip club and started to demand money. Amazingly, no one threw him out.”

Someone’s Putin’s puppet!

As for Zelensky’s speech? As Mediaite reports, Fox News’ new Fashion Police officer was pretty meh on that, too. And brought up the president’s attire again (which, by the way, are the fatigues he’s been wearing since his country has been at war with Russia):

“As far as we know, no one’s ever addressed the United States Congress in a sweatshirt before, but they love him much more than they love you.”

He later added that “the point” of Zelensky’s visit “was to fawn over the Ukrainian strip club manager and hand him billions more dollars from our own crumbling economy. It is hard, in fact, it may be impossible to imagine a more humiliating scenario for the greatest country on Earth.”

Does the Kremlin pay Tucker in rubles or testicle-tanning coupons?
