TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Anyways it's about democracy. Now we've told you night after night, not because we're anti-Ukraine or pro-Russia we're agnostic on both, don't live in either country, don't plan to, don't care to, so it's not a matter of preferring one over the other, it's just a stubborn insistence on defining words accurately, because they matter in this country. If you subvert the meaning of a word as fundamental as “democracy," maybe you can tamper with the way we live here in the United States. Just spit-balling for a second. So Ukraine, to be technical, is not a democracy. Democracies don't arrest political opponents, and they don't shut down opposition media, both of which Ukraine has done. And by the way, Ukraine is a pure client state of the United States State Department. Again, that's fine, we're not mad about that, go ahead and run Ukraine if you want, if you think you can do a better job than the Ukrainians. Just don't tell us it's democracy.
