TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Here's the bigger truth. Our global financial systems benefit us. That may not be fair, but it's true and they're the basis of our wealth. So, if you destroyed them in an effort to get Putin, who are you really destroying? You're destroying the United States. And that's exactly what they've done. When you attack and destabilize the global financial systems, to restate, you are attacking and destabilizing the United States, not Putin. 

You can't see this right now, because there's so much hysteria being ginned up by the media, particularly on social media. But when that hysteria lifts, when the cloud finally evaporates, it will be obvious that the Biden administration's response to the invasion of Ukraine is the single most damaging thing any American president has ever done to this country and to the world. Not to Putin, to us. And to a lot of small countries that didn't deserve it. 

It's hard to see that now. All you're seeing are Ukrainian flag emojis on Twitter. But someday we will assess this moment with clear heads and when we do, we will be horrified.
