Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), a potential running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, said on Sunday that she had learned a lesson about her 2016 comments on the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, adding that she “wouldn’t do that again.”
Bass addressed reports about her travels and comments on Cuba on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” including when she called Castro “Comandante en Jefe” in a statement after his death in 2016.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I didn’t see it that way,” she told moderator Chuck Todd. “I was expressing condolences to the Cuban people to the people in Cuba, not Cubans around the world.”
After acknowledging that people in Florida found her comments “endearing to him” Bass said, “I didn’t see it that way.”
“I was expressing condolences to the Cuban people to the people in Cuba, not Cubans around the world,” she said.
“I don’t think that’s a toxic expression in California, but let me just say Chuck, lesson learned, wouldn’t do that again,” Bass added.
