Bill de Blasio’s got his massive finger on the pulse, guys. Which is why when he was fist-pumping with striking Miami airport employees, he busted out one of Che Guevara’s greatest hits:
“The eyes of the world are on Miami-Dade and on this airport.” -De Blasio.
Followed that up by “Hasta la victoria siempre!” (famous Che Guevara quote) pic.twitter.com/vabGaueE43

This is not a drill:
“Hasta la victoria siempre…”

Aide: Alright, so there's this thing about Miami.
Bill de Blasio: Don't worry I got this
Aide: Yeah, but it's import—
BdB: Chill out, the workers get me
Aide: OK please just make sure you don't — https://t.co/ajDg5geNF1

Hey, @BilldeBlasio, the people arriving to Florida are escaping the misery that Che Guevara has brought upon them and millions of others in Latin America.
His ideology and the communists he left behind are responsible for millions starving in Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua. https://t.co/13M3xrq0sl

Quoting Ché Guevara, the ideology of whom many Cubans fled Cuba to Miami just to escape, probably doesn't play as well in Miami as he thinks.

Seems a bit tone deaf, considering that a significant portion of Miami is made up of people who fled Che’s and Castro’s Cuba. It’s like riling up a crowd of Holocaust survivors with unironic Hitler quotes.

"Does he really know who Che Guevara was?” asked Félix Rodríguez Mendigutia, a Bay of Pigs vet who helped the Bolivian army capture Guevara. “I don’t think so. If he does, he’s a f****ing a**hole.”@NewsbySmiley + @taydolven has the story on this fumble: https://t.co/iiMew5Yt2O

He never had it to begin with, but yeah. He can.
Get this tone deaf douche back to NYC.

Marco Rubio is understandably also pretty disgusted:
Bill DeBlasio went to a rally at the #Miami airport today & ended his speech by quoting from the murderous Che Guevara’s farewell letter to Fidel Castro.
But how dare anyone call him or any democrat candidate a socialist. https://t.co/IjIOTSI9GV

Nice going, Bill.
'How did he not know?' Raise your hand if you buy Bill de Blasio's explanation for quoting Che Guevara in Miami https://t.co/I7WrpTHlgE
