5 Most Embarrassing Statements on Fidel Castro’s Death from America’s Political Leaders

Fidel Castro, one of the most notorious dictators of the 20th and 21st century, has finally met his end.

The ninety-year-old despot took his last breaths on Friday evening. When the Cuban community heard the news, they partied in the streets like Americans did when Seal Team Six got Bin Laden.

Yet, some on the left didn’t celebrate Castro’s death (I’m not talking about Colin Kaepernick). Instead, they mourned his passing, which is mandatory if you live in communist Cuba, but not here in America.

President Barack Obama:

Reverend Jesse Jackson:

But he didn’t stop there:

Ex-president Jimmy Carter:

“Rosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro. We remember fondly our visits with him in Cuba and his love of his country. We wish the Cuban citizens peace and prosperity in the years ahead.”

Secretary of State John Kerry:

“We extend our condolences to the Cuban people today as they mourn the passing of Fidel Castro. Over more than half a century, he played an outsized role in their lives, and he influenced the direction of regional, even global affairs.

As our two countries continue to move forward on the process of normalization — restoring the economic, diplomatic and cultural ties severed by a troubled past — we do so in a spirit of friendship and with an earnest desire not to ignore history but to write a new and better future for our two peoples.

The United States reaffirms its support for deepening our engagement with the Cuban people now and in coming years.”

Nancy Pelosi:

Bonus:

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

Even with Fidel’s death, Cuba still remains under communist rule. And while supporters of Castro in America tout that he helped make things better and increased the level of equality, Cubans are making an average of $25.00 per month — so everyone is equal poor together.
