Tucker Carlson was shocked.
One of his colleagues at Fox News Channel was not happy with him.
And then Tucker Carlson got in a fight with a Fox News star that caused a huge problem.
Tucker Carlson appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The Five” to promote his new documentary about the nation of Hungary and its populist President Viktor Orban.
Orban is facing re-election this April and the entire organized global left mobilized to defeat Orban.
The corporate media and international left hate Orban because Orban defends traditional values and closed off Hungary’s border to protect his people from invasion of migrants flowing into the country from Syria and other nations.
Carlson defended Hungary from the leftist smears and lies designed to turn the nation into another woke socialist country.
“It’s not a radical country, it’s not a theocracy,” Carlson told the co-hosts of “The Five.” “It’s a very sort of simple, sweet country with some problems like every country, but they kind of try to make it better. That’s all they do.”
That’s when liberal co-host Geraldo Rivera piped up that he and his wife visited Hungary in 2020 and complained that Hungary was an autocracy because Hungary doesn’t teach the homosexual agenda in schools until children are adults over the age of 18 and go to college.
“Erica and I visited Budapest in the summer of 2020, they were looking forward to the elections coming up in April. Viktor Orban, the president, very controversial there, he’s thought of as authoritarian — also on the ballot is the fact that in Hungary, they are not allowed to teach LGBTQ facts of life until a kid is 18 or older,” Rivera whined.
“Do you want America to be more like Hungary, is that why you did this?” Rivera demanded Carlson answer.
Carlson responded by rejecting the idea that Hungary was an authoritarian state.
Instead, Carlson argued that Hungary did not throw nonviolent political protestors who trespassed at the Capitol in solitary confinement the way the Biden administration locked away January 6 protestors.
“I don’t know if I would say it’s authoritarian, I mean, they didn’t lock up hundreds of people without trial in solitary confinement for staging a political protest or trespassing. We did do that, and are still doing it. Nothing like that, as far as I know, is happening in Hungary, there are no political prisoners. Orban could lose by the way in the elections in April, so it’s hardly this monolithic, one-party state,” Carlson began.
Carlson compared Hungary to the United States where the Democrats controlled every lever of power and sought to undermine democracy and free and fair elections with a massive federal power grab to seize control of election administration and rig the rules in their favor.
“It’s not like one party controls all the levers of government like is the case in this country. Look, I’m an American, I love America, I will always defend America, but the idea that Hungary is less a democracy than the U.S. or than Ukraine,” Carlson added.
“Anyone who says that is either lying or doesn’t know anything,” Carlson concluded.
