JESSE WATTERS (HOST): Tulsi, it is striking when you see Putin propaganda and you line it up against Biden propaganda. Do you think that we're at risk of kind of moving in that direction right now? 


TULSI GABBARD (FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE): This is what is so dangerous about the place that we are in right now as a country. Where this idea, this principle, this foundation of freedom of speech, freedom of expression is directly under threat and under attack.

And you are right, it's not so different. What is happening here is not so different from what we're seeing happening in Russia, where you have got state TV and controlled messaging across the board. This is where we are at. 

WATTERS: It worked so well for them during COVID. If you questioned anything, they wanted to knock you off social media, they wanted to get you in trouble because you were seen as a danger to other people. And now they are trying the same playbook with the war in Ukraine.
