There’s a war brewing between Fox News and the conservative upstart Newsmax — and Newsmax host Eric Bolling fired a bold shot at top cable news star Tucker Carlson on Monday.
It was an explosive accusation… literally. Carlson is inciting a nuclear war between NATO and Russia, Bolling claimed.
And he called Carlson an “alleged American.”
“I’m going to give you a disclaimer, folks, before you come at me all over this. I am very worried about a world war, a nuclear World War III where nobody wins,” Bolling said. “So when I see a fellow conservative making statements that could incite a world war, a nuclear war. I have to call him out.”
“When I see our arch enemy Russia and the sociopath Putin using that same conservative as propaganda, you should know about it and maybe get to him and tell him to stand down,” he said.
“Because, in all things, nuclear caution upfront is the best way to avoid total annihilation at the back side of these issues,” he said.
Bolling said that Carlson’s recent statements have been being used by Russian propagandists as proof that America is weak — and accused Carlson of acting dangerously.
“Turns out Russia’s state media are using clips of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to support Vladimir Putin’s war efforts in Ukraine,” he said. “Look at that right there. That is Russian state media using Tucker Carlson, alleged American, as propaganda to make their case that Russia is the victim, not the aggressor.”

“And again, last Thursday, Tucker Carlson again blamed Ukraine for starting the war, although Russia invaded her,” Bolling said.
“And he continues to claim America should cut off all funds and military support to Ukraine.”
Bolling then played a recent clip from Carlson’s where the Fox News star said Ukraine had little hope of defeating Russia in open war.
But don’t take our word of it.
