Tucker Says Boris Johnson Demanded $1 Million for an Interview

I don’t think he was going to do the interview regardless.

A million dollars is not some huge amount of money for someone like Johnson. This was just a way of saying “go to hell, you anti-anal fascist.”


American journalist Tucker Carlson has said former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson would only agree to an interview if he received a $1 million fee. He made the claim following his high-profile interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Speaking to Blaze TV founder Glenn Beck for an interview that aired on Tuesday, Carlson contrasted his experience interviewing Putin with attempts to sit down with Johnson, who has slammed the former Fox host as a “tool of the Kremlin” after Carlson’s lengthy discussion with the Russian president earlier this month.

”So I’m over in Moscow, I’m waiting to do this interview, it gets out that we’re doing it, and I’m immediately denounced by this guy called Boris Johnson,” he said. “So I put in a request for an interview with [Johnson], because he’s constantly denouncing me.”

Hoping Johnson would “explain his position on Ukraine,” Carlson said he soon heard back from Johnson’s staff, who revealed the former prime minister would agree to the interview – but only on one condition.

”Finally an adviser gets back to me and said, ‘He will talk to you, but it’s going to cost you a million dollars.’ He wants a million in US dollars, gold or bitcoin – this just happened yesterday or two days ago!” he continued.

Pretty based that he takes Bitcoin.

Carlson went on to note that he had just finished his interview with Putin, who “didn’t ask me for a million dollars.”

“So you’re telling me that Boris Johnson is a lot sleazier, a lot lower than Vladimir Putin? So this whole thing is a freaking shakedown,” Carlson added.

Johnson was highly critical of Carlson’s two-hour sit-down with Putin, penning a scathing op-ed for the Daily Mail soon after the interview aired.

”When Tucker Carlson went to the Kremlin, he had a function well known to history. He was to be the stooge of the tyrant, the dictaphone to the dictator and a traitor to journalism,” Johnson wrote, adding that Carlson had failed to press Putin on Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.

Boris Johnson should be in prison with all the rest of these anal lunatics.

He apparently told Zelensky that there was no way he could win the war. He flew in, after all the details had been worked out for a peace treaty between Moscow and Kiev, and told Zelensky to never surrender.

Unless he threatened Zelensky, he must have told him: “The entire machine of NATO is behind you, you can’t lose, you’ll be hailed as a hero.”

These are not questions he’s going to answer. He wouldn’t answer them for a million or a billion. The questions can’t be answered.

However, if I were Tucker, I would have responded to the request for a million with “yeah, okay – send me your BTC address.”
