Poland and Hungary have blasted Bill Clinton over a remark by the former U.S. president accusing the ex-communist EU and NATO countries of taking an authoritarian turn and wanting "Putin-like leadership"."Anyone claiming that democracy doesn't exist in Poland today ought to seek medical attention," Kaczynski told reporters in Warsaw late Tuesday.Although he holds no cabinet post, the leader of the governing populist Law and Justice (PiS) party is widely regarded as the real power-broker in the government that swept to power on an anti-migrant and populist spending platform in October elections.Critics both at home and abroad have blasted the right-wing governments in both Poland and Hungary, accusing them of rolling back democratic freedoms by tightening their grip on public media and undermining other democratic checks and balances.
