Bernie Defends Fidel Castro

Bernie Defends Fidel Castro

( – Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is now praising murderous dictators because socialism is cool or something.

During an interview on CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” the Democratic frontrunner said it’s “unfair” to say all Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro’s policies were bad. Florida lawmakers were quick to react. Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) said his comments amounted to “shameful ignorance.” Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) was aghast:

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel slammed Sanders on Twitter and called on Democrats to condemn him:

Sanders’ remarks will make it incredibly difficult to win Florida if he wins the Dem primary. The southern state is home to a huge Cuban-American population, many of whom fled Castro’s brutal regime. President Donald Trump, however, has a lot of support in the state and won it in 2016. Of course, he isn’t praising socialist dictators.
