Geraldo was on TV expounding on the virtues of Fidel Castro. He said that he visited there several times and it was great. Yeah, maybe for a VIP Cuban propagandist but not for the people who had to live there. That’s why Cubans headed to the United States in leaky boats, risking their lives to get out of there. The Cuban people are impoverished but Castro died with a net worth of 900 million dollars.
Geraldo: You know I’ve been to Cuba several times especially back in those times when it was shut off. I think it’s very easy to have a simplistic view that he was all awful for Cuba and the world and I just don’t think that’s accurate. I think the Cubans have a tremendous sense of pride over his legacy. And I think he will be remembered fondly… There are aspects of what he left behind that I think will be remembered.
Cubans are dancing in the streets.
