re: #348 capitalist piglet

Mr. Obama was referring to the 52-minute airing of grievances by Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, which ran through decades of what he saw as American imperialism. When discussing the Bay of Pigs invasion, which was launched 48 years ago, Mr. Ortega said he didn’t blame Mr. Obama for it, since according to Cuban President Raoul Castro, the invasion happened when Barack Obama was 3-and-a-half months old at the time.

“Obviously, he didn’t have any responsibility for that historic event,” Ortega said.

Actually, President Obama was four months away from being born at the time, April 17, 1961 — 48 years ago today.

Mr. Obama’s birthday is in August.

Botched joke.

I wonder….Do they speak Nicaraguan in Nicaragua too Barry?
