WATCH: Mitt Romney Slams Tucker Carlson for Meeting With Hungarian Leader Viktor Orban
Sometimes Mitt Romney delights Democrats with his willingness to cross the political aisle. And other times, the Utah senator goes along with whatever Mitch McConnell says and makes Liberals regret having faith in him.
Recently, Romney did something to make Liberals happy. During a speech at Bringham Young University, the former presidential candidate broached the topic of authoritarianism. And while discussing the topic, he ripped Fox host Tucker Carlson for his meeting with Hungarian leader Viktor Orban.
Without mentioning the Fox host by name, Romney told the students, “A prominent TV pundit traveled to Hungary to extol Viktor Orban as a model for us to emulate. Orban censors the media in his country, ignores the will of the people in elections, amasses wealth for himself and his cronies. Hungary is ranked as one of the least free, least democratic countries in the developed world. Hungary, model for America?”
When doing his story on Orban, Carlson told viewers, “Just a few years ago, his views would’ve seemed moderate and conventional. He thinks families are more important than banks. He believes countries need borders. For saying these things out loud, Orbán has been vilified.”
