After communist Cuba’s “president” Miguel Diaz-Canel demanded the independence of Puerto Rico during statements at the Ibero-American Summit, Pedro Pierluisi, Puerto Rico’s governor, set the sock puppet straight. Pierluisi was not present during Diaz-Canel’s remarks, but he was not about to let the ill-advised comment to go unanswered.
“Although I was not present during this, I can’t allow the remarks made by Cuba’s president Miguel Diaz-Canel calling for the independence of Puerto Rico during today’s session go without a response. Here we believe in democracy, and the desire of the majority of our people in favor of statehood and equality under the flag of the United States must be respected. I suggest you focus on liberating your people from the yoke of communism, which has only brought misery and pain to the Cuban people.”
This is what we Cubans call una galleta sin manos, a smack to the face without hands.
