Secretary of State John Kerry has joined the ranks of those responding to the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro by downplaying reality big time:
— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) November 26, 2016
We extend our condolences to the Cuban people today as they mourn the passing of Fidel Castro. Over more than half a century, he played an outsized role in their lives, and he influenced the direction of regional, even global affairs.
As our two countries continue to move forward on the process of normalization — restoring the economic, diplomatic and cultural ties severed by a troubled past — we do so in a spirit of friendship and with an earnest desire not to ignore history but to write a new and better future for our two peoples.
The United States reaffirms its support for deepening our engagement with the Cuban people now and in coming years.
Well first of all, Mr. Secretary…
Dear outgoing (thank God) Secretary Kerry: a lot of Cubans are "mourning" Castro because they know what will happen to them if they don't. https://t.co/3wm6z1gVqK

And claiming Castro “played an outsized role” in the lives of the Cuban people is right up there with Obama saying the dictator “altered the course” of their lives.
This, on the other hand, is awful. https://t.co/BilJwQlDUJ

Kerry and Obama are literally normalizing tyranny. https://t.co/gTlBW2aHqv

Kerry: "[Castro] played an outsized role in their lives"

Perhaps Kerry will show up in Havana with a pal:
