Last night’s Tucker Carlson interview of President Putin is giving me endless things to talk about today…
It was one of the most fascinating 2+ hours I’ve spent recently!
And I’ve been covering topic after topic today, but now I want to pause and ask about something slightly strange that I noticed…
I was curious to see how this interview would go since one man speaks English and the other Russian.
I believe Putin probably has a decent grasp of English too, but I assumed Tucker does not speak Russian.
So I assumed they’d have translators and earpieces going, and they kind of did except it appears to me (and you can just pull up the video and watch for yourself to confirm) that Putin used an earpiece but Tucker did not.
How is that possible?
Does Tucker speak Russian?
See Putin here:
And Tucker here:
I wasn’t the only person who noticed and was confused.
I do not see an earpiece in Tucker's ear – is it hiding in his left ear, or does he speak Russian?!!! pic.twitter.com/vFjoacU77c

Something that stuck out to me is that Putin is wearing a translator ear piece, but Tucker is not.

I asked Grok to see what it would say:
Sorry to the all-powerful computer AI, but I don’t think any of those three explanations make sense.
I think it’s more likely that Tucker had a small, in-ear, hidden microphone perhaps in his left ear that we can’t see so well.
And Putin was using maybe an older, bulkier technology.
One thing I’m pretty confident about…even if Tucker does have a fairly good understanding of the Russian language (which I have no evidence to believe is true) you would not risk an interview of this magnitude on a communication misunderstanding! Even Putin who I believe speaks English fairly well was leaving nothing up to chance and had a translation earpiece in. That’s simply what you do.
But I’d love to know what everyone else thinks!
Drop a comment below.
Maybe Tucker actually is in the CIA after-all and speaks Russian fluently? 🤣
Speaking of unanswered questions about what we saw:
What Is The Red Wrist Band Tucker Always Wears?
I want to make this very clear upfront....this is not an attack piece on Tucker Carlson.
I love what he's doing and I think he's incredible!
He's desperately needed right now and he's exposing truth on a global scale.
But we also don't self-censor around here and we aren't afraid to cover a story no matter WHAT the story is or WHO it's about.
And I've had so many of you email me about this or comment online, hundreds at this point, that I have to address it.
I'm just asking the question, not drawing any conclusions, but the question is this: What is that red wrist-band that Tucker always wears?
He has it on in every interview.
He had it on last night:
I spotted Tucker's red wrist band a few times. He doesn't hide it. pic.twitter.com/fQOdfATLGJ

He wore it nightly on Fox News:
He wears it on podcasts:
So....what is it?
Well, the red bracelet is often associated with the Jewish "mystical" practice of Kaballah.
It's probably not fair to say Jewish, as it appears by all accounts to be an occultist offspring of Judaism.
Here's what ChatGPT says about it -- it's not hidden folks, it's all out in the open:
The red Kabbalah bracelet is a thin red string worn on the left wrist, which, in Kabbalistic tradition, is believed to offer protection against the evil eye and negative energies. The concept originates from Jewish mysticism, particularly Kabbalah, which is a spiritual and esoteric interpretation of Jewish religious texts.
The left side, according to Kabbalistic beliefs, is the side of the body that is more vulnerable to spiritual harm. Therefore, the red string is worn on the left wrist as a form of protection. It is said that the red string wards off misfortune and harmful forces. The tradition of wearing a red string is associated with Rachel, one of the matriarchs in the Hebrew Bible, who is considered a protector in Kabbalistic lore. The string is often made from wool and is sometimes tied with specific knots as part of a ritual.
While the practice has roots in Jewish mysticism, it has gained popularity beyond Jewish communities and is sometimes adopted by celebrities and others as a spiritual or fashion accessory, often without full adherence to its original religious significance.
A LOT of celebs wear them:
Hmm interesting. It seems like he tries to hide it from view. It looks all red to me. Looks exactly like the Kaballah bracelet all of Hollywood wears and Cohen. pic.twitter.com/D0x2FLgAkk

So I asked Grok about it and here's what it told me:
Very similar to what ChatGPT told us.
But Grok also points out that Tucker has never directly addressed it.
So, bottom line....my take?
I'd just like to know.
I wish someone would ask Tucker directly and I wish he would just tell us what it means to him and why he wears it.
Basically, I agree with this Tweet:
Someone should ask him directly: @TuckerCarlson , can you tell us about the red bracelet you wear? Does it have any symbolism or religious meaning? Hearing from you could put a lot of speculation to rest. ☺️

But I'd love to hear what you think!
No big deal or does it bother you?
