‘The Wave’ performed by Obama and Castro in Cuba should give rise to the ‘Wave of the Poor’

Giving the dismissive ‘wave’ to the Obamas

USA Today categorizes President Barack Obama doing ‘the wave’ with Cuban President Raul Castro at the start of a baseball game between the Cuban national team and the Tampa Bay Raves on Tuesday as something “from the growing annal of ‘Things We Thought We’d Never See’.”

Really, USA Today?

Millions more are resigned to the shock show spiteful Obama has prepared for his last months in office.

On the same day of his “me-and-Raúl”  wave, America’s jumped up community organizer gave all of 51 seconds in a fleeting mention of the horrific, brutal terrorist attack in Brussels before getting back to his Cuba speech.

Surely no media on Earth could ever find the way to categorize a 51-second statement on a terrorist attack that claimed 34 lives, injuring more than 200 others.

The president of the world’s most powerful country,  who refuses to identify ISIS by their own name, and who did ‘the wave’ with Cuba’s communist president,  is the one and the same who made no mention at all about the nine Cubans who drowned in waves trying to make it to Florida while he was on the way to the country they gave their very lives to escape.

That the Obama family get away with masquerading as defenders of the world poor is an insult to human intelligence.

The self-styled Obama blue-bloods actually flaunt their riches—paid for from the public purse—as touring royalty.

“US Weekly recently spotlighted two outfits that Obama wore during appearances in Havana on Sunday and Monday that both, according to a Free Beacon analysis, cost more than 23 times the average annual state salary in Cuba recorded in 2014.

“When the president and his family landed in Cuba Sunday, the first lady descended Air Force One wearing a sleeveless, rose-print dress made by designer Carolina Herrera. The dress is currently sold for $2,190 at Bergdorf Goodman, an upscale department store.”

Make that an upscale department store where little Cuban girls will never be.

“Later, on Monday evening, Obama dressed in a floral, knee-length dress from designer Naeem Khan to attend the state dinner at the Palace of the Revolution in Havana, Cuba. A similar frock from Naeem Khan, a Barack Obama donor, available in the designer’s pre-fall 2016 collection costs $4,490. (Washington Beacon)

“According to Trading Economics, a provider of historical economic data, the average monthly salary in Cuba was 584 pesos, or about $24, in 2014, based on statistics provided by the National Office of Statistics. That represented a significant increase in the average monthly salary over the previous year, which was 471 pesos ($20).”

Even the Obama daughters are in on the dressing-like-royalty act.  Both Malia and Sasha wore gowns costing American taxpayers $20,000 apiece at the State Dinner thrown at the White House last week for Canadian celeb Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

‘The Wave’ performed by Obama and Castro in Cuba should give rise to the ‘Wave of the Poor’, a dismissive wave of the hand that symbolically dismisses all hypocritical Marxists exploiting the poor in order to maintain lives of legendary luxury.
