Sacked TV Host Tucker Carlson Still Backs Hungary’s PM Orbán
“I greatly appreciate Viktor Orbán’s political talent, I trust he can handle the US,” former star TV host Tucker Carson has told the website

Carlson continued: “Orbán is not an extremist. He is an extremely talented politician. He is trusted with a country in Central Europe, in the ring of seven neighbouring countries...”

Referring to the current war in Ukraine, Carlson posited: “I doubt Viktor Orbán or any other Hungarian loves Russians… but they have to get along with Russia, because this enormous country will always be there. They can’t just be filed away as a wicked empire and cease dialogue with it. They must maintain dialogue because they need energy agreements…”
