Revolutionary Leader Fidel Castro Dies @ 90 Comments (0)

No tears here for Fidel Castro, the onetime dicta—I mean, former president of Cuba—who finally died at 90 on Friday evening.

Little Havana seems pretty happy, too, with some Trump/Pence signs (do they think this was somehow a campaign promise Trump fulfilled?).

Castro's history is well-known and controversial, with some good and a lot of bad. He singlehandedly brought the world closer to a nuclear war than it had ever been before or since and kept his island's citizens in poverty, in spite of plenty of Soviet help.

That said, I was glad when President Obama jump-started the normalizing of relations with Cuba this year, and frankly, I think Castro's death is another positive step for Cuba and for the U.S./Cuba relationship.

End of an era is sometimes not such a bad thing.

Speaking of bad things, check out the nuanced, statesmanlike response from our current president and the Neanderthal response from our incoming #NotMyPresident:

I wouldn't begrudge a Cuban immigrant a little grave-dancing, but I need something more from the purported leader of the free world.

Terrifying: Class Meets Crass Comments (0)

Mocking Trump for being clearly incompetent to be POTUS has the feeling of making fun of a quack surgeon your partner forced you to use, just as you're about to go under; the man is going to fail, but it will hurt you to be right!

But watching his meeting with Obama makes me nauseated. Obama is so confident and assured and dignified, Trump looks fucking terrified and anxious and out of his element.

He truly never expected to win.
