Tucker Carlson pointed out last night on his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to a now deleted tweet from the U.S. Embassy in Zimbabwe praising the country’s late President Robert Mugabe, which was taken down after many users complained about his human rights record.
“The United States extends its condolences to the Mugabe family and the people of Zimbabwe as they mourn the passing of former President Robert Mugabe,” the since-deleted tweet read. “We join the world in reflecting on his legacy in securing Zimbabwe’s independence.”
Tucker Carlson called the tweet an example of the executive branch being “completely out of control.”
“Apparently the US Ambassador to Zimbabwe signed off on it,” Carlson said Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “He should be recalled for that… This is when you know the executive branch of government is completely out of control. That it’s being run by bureaucrats who don’t care at all who was elected, who are acting out their left-wing agendas without any restraint.”
“Because Robert Mugabe was such a bad leader that no normal person would look at him and say we need to mourn his passing,” Carlson continued.”Not one person. The only words in response to his death would be ‘good riddance.'”
Rep. Brendan Boyle, D-Penn., questioned if the U.S. Embassy in Harare’s Twitter account was a parody account:
