Ted Cruz appeared on ABC’s This Week this morning and shared Castro’s damaging impact on his family.  He also stated that he hopes that no government official attends Castro’s funeral.

ABC News reports:

Cruz said on ABC News’ “This Week” that the death of the longtime Cuban leader presents “an interesting test” for U.S. officials over the the next few days.

“It is a real opportunity for U.S. officials to show where they stand. Let’s stand with human rights and let’s not celebrate someone who has 60 years of blood on his hands,” Cruz told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz.

“I hope we don’t see Barack Obama and Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton and the Democrats lining up to lionize a murderous tyrant and thug,” the Texas senator said. “If you wouldn’t go to Pol Pot’s funeral or Stalin’s funeral or Mao’s funeral because they were murderous communist dictators then you shouldn’t be doing what Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau are doing, which is celebrating Fidel Castro, a murderous communist dictator.”

Watch:

As Obama couldn’t be bothered to attend Margaret Thatcher’s funeral, I’d be doubly horrified if he decided to attend Castro’s.

But somehow I doubt he will given the humiliation of the last time he met with Castro’s brother Raul.
