Marco Rubio: Obama's Cuba Trip is a Disgrace

On Sunday, President Obama and his family arrived in Cuba for the first presidential visit to the country in 88 years. Ahead of the visit, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), the son of Cuban immigrants, took to Facebook to explain why he feels as though the visit is "one of the most disgraceful trips ever taken by a U.S. president."

Take a look at the full, blistering, takedown:

Rubio makes fair points. Obama's itinerary for his Cuba trip is basically a kid's gloves, least controversy as possible type of visit. Everyday Cubans are still living under a dictatorship, and it's entirely possible that all the visit is going to do is stoke the egos of the people in power--not improve things for the little guy.
