Fox News host Tucker Carlson delivered stunning remarks Monday night, just days before America’s Thanksgiving holiday.

“Why do I care what is going on in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia?” an untethered Carlson asked his guest, former Clinton advisor Richard Goodstein.

“I’m serious,” Carlson declared. “Why shouldn’t I root for Russia? Which I am.”

Goodstein had been saying that Russia attacked Ukraine, explaining that “people are dying on the front lines.”

14,000 Ukrainians have been slaughtered in the war with their next door neighbor, Russia.

Carlson, at the end of the show, claimed he had been kidding when he said he was “serious.”

“Before we go, earlier in the show I noted I was rooting for Russia in the contest between Russia and Ukraine,” Carlson told his Fox News viewers, The Daily Beast noted, after social media outrage. “Of course, I’m joking. I’m only rooting for America—mocking the obsession many on the left have. Ha!”

GOP governors are refusing to do Trump’s bidding and ducking him on the campaign trail: report

On Saturday, Maggie Haberman of The New York Times profiled how President Donald Trump is having less luck whipping Republican governors into line than Republican senators, including governors who arguably owe their election to his support.

"In Florida, Mr. Trump’s aides helped save the flailing candidacy of Ron DeSantis in the 2018 Republican primary, and then the general election," wrote Haberman. "Also last year, in Georgia, Mr. Trump helped pull Brian Kemp over the finish line in both the primary and the general election. In both cases, Mr. Trump’s advisers implored him to stay out of the primaries, and he agreed to — only to surprise his aides by jumping in to support Mr. DeSantis and Mr. Kemp."
