Sen. Marco Rubio praised President-elect Trump's statements about Cuba on Sunday and slammed President Obama for what he described as a "pathetic" response to Fidel Castro's death.

Rubio, himself a Cuban-American, said during an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" that he hoped Trump would roll back America's newly opened diplomatic relationship with Cuba if the Raul Castro regime did not make some concessions to the U.S.

"I'm a lot more confident in him doing it than I would have been in Hillary Clinton doing it," Rubio said of Trump. "So far he has said all the right things."

The Florida Republican had called Obama's statement of condolences to the Castro family "pathetic" on social media Saturday. He defended the dig on Sunday.

 I say we ship these a**hole Hollywood/Sports Stars to exile in Cuba! These people are leaches.... Hypocrites.... So done with the phony crap! The poor Cubans that fled that evil regime have had to live in America without the opportunity of ever seeing their family members again in Cuba.Castro... pure evil! And Obama sits with him at a baseball game... What a slap in the face to Cuban Americans. No wonder they voted for Trump! Obama is warped!




Newsweek’s Headquarters
Raided By The NYPD

The headquarters of Newsweek was raided by the NYPD Thursday morning. Police reportedly took photos of the magazine’s servers.

New York Post reports:

About two dozen NYPD officers and investigators from the Manhattan district attorney’s office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.

The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices on 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.

Few details have emerged from the raid.

“Looking into reports that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office @ManhattanDA raided Newsweek/IBT Offices today….sources say police have been there for hours. The DA has declined to comment,” tweeted reporter Avi Asher-Schapiro.

Newsweek is also in the news Thursday after an “insider” told The Wrap editor Jon Levine that the magazine has abandoned journalism for “rage clicks,” in the Trump-era.

“Newsweek was once a premiere media organization and an incredible springboard for young journalists hoping to grow a name for themselves,” the source told Levine.

“The company culture has turned the newsroom into a toxic work environment, while the publication has descended into a content farm for last-resort clickbait,” the source added.
