Krauthammer: If Dems Attack Tillerson Over Russia Ties, ‘It Will Be a Delightful Festival of Hypocrisy’

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” columnist Charles Krauthammer stated that if Democrats go after potential Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson over his ties to Russia, “it will be a delightful festival of hypocrisy.”

Krauthammer said, “If the Democrats go after Tillerson on the Russia ties, it will be a delightful festival of hypocrisy. The [Democrats] for 20 years have been as soft on the Russians as you can come, and then all of a sudden, they have discovered that the Russians are not our friends. So, this is quite a flip-flop. And, well, look, the famous moment all of us remember, Obama mocking Romney for saying that the Russians are a big threat. Now all of a sudden, they’re becoming cold warriors. I don’t think it’s going to look very good.”
