MSNBC's Joe Scarborough likened Senator Bernie Sanders' praise of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro's literacy programs to someone who would praise Italian dictator Benito Mussolini for his punctual trains. "That's like saying Mussolini had the trains running. 'Have you seen the trains?' While people are up on meat hooks all lined up behind the train," the Morning Joe host said Tuesday.
"[Castro] had a literacy regime. But he also had a regime who tortured Catholics, tortured people who worshipped God in a way he didn't like, tortured students that had newspapers, kept people locked up for years, killed people," Scarborough continued. "You cannot talk about Fidel Castro's literacy program, and you shouldn't be able to without talking about the long laundry list of evils committed by Fidel Castro against his own people over decades." "He is defending this and doubling down in 2020. That ain't cool with South Carolina voters. That ain't cool with Democrats," he said.
