Cue Giant Right Wing Freakout: Obama, Cuba’s Raul Castro Shake Hands at Mandela Memorial
Your gigantic unison right wing freakout of the day: Obama, Cuban President Raul Castro Shake Hands at Nelson Mandela Memorial.
President Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro today at a memorial service for the late Nelson Mandela in South Africa.
Obama stopped to shake Castro’s hand as he was walking to the podium to pay tribute to Mandela. The handshake between the presidents of the long-estranged Cold War rivals came at a ceremony honoring the life and legacy of the former South African leader at a soccer stadium in Johannesburg.
Breitbart “News” leads the two-minute hate: CNN: OBAMA-CASTRO HANDSHAKE SHOULD ‘NOT BE MISUNDERSTOOD’!!!
Here’s how propagandist John Nolte describes the handshake:
For those who believe in human rights and liberty, the sight of our president bounding up some stairs to energetically shake hands with Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, was more than a little unsettling — regardless of the circumstance.
I swear, these hateful morons can’t even write one sentence without being dishonest. Obama was “bounding up some stairs” because that’s where the podium was. He wasn’t rushing up there because he was so incredibly eager to shake hands with Raul Castro — it’s where he had to go to give his speech. Good grief.
And there are currently more than 2000 absolutely disgusting, openly racist comments, of course.
