  • 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.”
