Newsmax host Eric Bolling took direct aim at Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday, calling him “an alleged American” over his stance on the Russian/Ukrainian conflict in connection to comments he made last week.

Bolling’s smear against Carlson dripped with venom and it was more than evident there is no love lost between the two conservatives. This is not the first time he has attacked Carlson over Russia.

The Newsmax host who formerly worked at Fox News himself began his segment by expressing deep concern about the potential of WWIII erupting with nukes in play.

“I am very worried about a world war, a nuclear World War III where nobody wins,” Bolling stated. “So when I see a fellow conservative making statements that could incite a world war, a nuclear war. I have to call him out.”

Bolling’s show “The Balance” airs at the same time that “Tucker Carlson Tonight” does.

“When I see our arch enemy Russia and the sociopath Putin using that same conservative for propaganda,” he remarked to his viewers, “you should know about it and maybe get to him and tell him to stand down.”

Bolling then pivoted to Carlson clips that Russia is ostensibly playing on state television as propaganda. He came off sounding more like the rabid leftist than a conservative. In fact, he used a reference from Newsweek on the propaganda charge.

“It turns out Russian state media are using clips of Fox News’s Tucker Carlson to support Vladimir Putin’s war efforts in Ukraine,” he noted. “That is Russian state media using Tucker Carlson, an alleged American, as propaganda to make their case that Russia is the victim.”

“Last Thursday, Tucker Carlson again blamed Ukraine for starting the war,” he asserted. “And he continues to claim America should cut off all funds and military support to Ukraine.”

He played a clip where Carlson claimed there was “no way” Ukraine would be able to win the war because Russia is much bigger and better armed. He also contended that Ukraine is reportedly the poorest nation in Europe.

Bolling then accused Carlson of misleading viewers by mischaracterizing a Guardian article about the Western reaction to a potential Russian nuclear strike.

Carlson quoted a senior aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy who allegedly called for a preemptive strike on Russian nuclear launch sites by the West if President Vladimir Putin “evens thinks” about using nuclear weapons. He has a point on the wording of the call to action.

“Well, that sounded odd even for a pro-Russia commentator like Tucker,” Bolling snarked, not giving any credence to the suspicious wording.

“Tucker, he’s a smart guy,” he acknowledged. “Did he just miss that little, yet very contextual-changing word, ‘respond’? Or was that Freudian on his part?”

On Sunday, Russian Media Monitor creator Julia Davis shared a video from Russian state TV where hosts played a translated clip of Carlson speaking on Fox News, according to Newsweek.

The footage shows Carlson saying “happy anniversary” to the now-seven-month conflict, before claiming it was impossible for Ukraine to win a war against Russia.

“It was clear, right away, that if Ukraine wanted to remain a sovereign country – and of course, all of us wanted that – Ukraine was going to have to reach some kind of negotiated settlement with Russia,” Carlson stated in another propaganda clip.

What isn’t shown is that the quotes are not in full context. But that doesn’t stop propaganda from being used by the Russians, the left, or Eric Bolling.
