  • MIAMI CELEBRTION: The reaction on the streets to news of death of Fidel Castro.

Cuban maximum leader Fidel Castro has died at 90, but whether this means changes for the country under his brother's leadership or whether the Donald Trump  administration will upend President Obama's move to normalize relations with Cuba is anyone's guess.

Arkansas farmers — who undoubtedly voted overwhelmingly for Trump — are hoping deeply that Cuba trade increases, not decreases.  Ironic, yes?

Kind of like these Trump voters in Florida, one of the biggest enrollment pockets for Obamacare, which is to be dismantled if the ruling Republicans deliver on their promises.

UPDATE:  This just in; Tom Cotton is not only a senator, he apparently is God.

Washington, D.C.— Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the death of Fidel Castro:

"Fidel Castro created hell on earth for the Cuban people. He will now become intimately familiar with what he wrought.”

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
