Tucker Carlson‘s question to President Trump about NATO and Montenegro last night set off a bit of a firestorm, and Carlson tonight doubled down.

Carlson questioned the NATO provision about defending member nations and name-dropped Montenegro in particular, asking, ‘Why should my son go to Montenegro to defend it from attack?’

Tonight Carlson said, ‘Montenegro has fewer residents than the District of Columbia. It’s a relatively poor place. It has no critical national resources and limited strategic significance. Few Americans could find it on a map or name its capital or its president. That’s not a slur against Montenegro, apparently it’s a nice place, but those are the facts about Montenegro. ‘” (Mediaite)
