As we told you last night, in a 60 Minutes interview, Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had praise for the Castro regime in Cuba:
In ‚Äú60 Minutes‚ÄĚ interview, Sanders goes out of his way praise elements of Castro‚Äôs reign of Cuba.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but it‚Äôs unfair to say everything‚Äôs bad. When Castro came into office you know what he did? He had a literacy program.‚ÄĚ

Sanders was defending remarks he made in the 1980s about Castro‚Äôs Cuba. Joe Biden and his campaign have now joined those criticizing Bernie‚Äôs comments:
Biden joins in knocking Sanders over 60 Minutes interview re Cuba:
"He seems to have found more inspiration in the Soviets, Sandinistas, Chavistas, and Castro than in America."

Everybody remembers who Biden spent eight years working for, right?
Biden criticizing Bernie‚Äôs comments on Castro just sort of breezes by the fact that Obama made almost identical remarks.

A lot of comments didn‚Äôt make the rounds or spark outrage when Obama was in office, partly thanks to a collective hibernation.
Narrator: Obama got away with a lot of things he shouldn't have. https://t.co/LQBHtdCj13
