Cuban-American lawmaker Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) issued a statement on Fidel Castro’s passing, saying “a tyrant is dead,” but didn’t she support Donald Trump who is backed by another tyrant? Vladimir Putin?
Ros-Lehtinen said, “The day that the people, both inside the island and out, have waited for has arrived: A tyrant is dead and a new beginning can dawn on the last remaining communist bastion of the Western hemisphere.”
“Those who still rule Cuba with an iron grip may attempt to delay the island’s liberation, but they cannot stop it. Castro’s successors cannot hide and must not be allowed to hide beneath cosmetic changes that will only lengthen the malaise of the Cuban nation. No regime, no matter who leads it, will have a shred of legitimacy if it has not been chosen by the people of Cuba in free and fair elections.”
Um, funny she should mention fair elections… We didn’t have that here in the U.S. because of Russian interference and FBI Director James Comey putting his thumb on the scales for Donald Trump.
