ICYMI: 15 Times Obama Criticized America While Visiting Argentina, Cuba

President Obama carried on with his world apology tour while in Argentina last month, regretfully acknowledging the “early dark days” of the CIA and its role during the country’s ‘Dirty War.’ But that wasn’t the only part about America’s history he lamented while visiting the South American country and Cuba.

Aside from his CIA comments, Grabien compiled a video montage of 15 times the president spoke negatively about America’s past, which WeaselZippers sums up below:

America must have the “courage to acknowledge” its role in Argentina’s human-rights abuses

America can’t be slow talking about human-rights violations, as we’ve done in Argentina

The Constitution’s separation of powers makes it hard for America to adapt to the changing times

America must do more to promote equality

America needs to reduce discrimination

America suffers from “political polarization”

America was built by slaves

America has too much money in politics

America has a problem with racially-biased criminal justice system, a racially-biased society, and a legacy of slavery & segregation

Many American states would have forbidden his biracial parents to marry — had they tried

Many American schools in the south were segregated when he was young

American democracy is imperfect

America’s political process is not pretty, as evidenced by the current 2016 race

Cuba’s Castro’s more readily sharing his thoughts on where America is “falling short” will help us improve

He “doesn’t disagree” with Castro’s view that America should provide “free” health care, education, and social security to all

This doesn't exactly sound like a man who's proud to be an American.
