Yup, she’s sandwiched right between Fidel Castro and Kim Jong Un.

What do these three figures have in common? Well, our pr*sident hates two of them — but, bizarrely enough, not the one with all the blood on his hands.

The Washington Post:

The video, shown between games of the Fresno Grizzlies’ doubleheader Monday, displayed President Ronald Reagan’s first inaugural address on top of patriotic photos and images honoring veterans. A Fresno Bee reporter first pointed out the video on Twitter.

“As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people,” Reagan said as a photo of Ocasio-Cortez flashed across the screen between photos of dictators. “We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it. We will not surrender for it, now or ever.”

To the team’s credit, it apologized for the video. But one has to wonder how it got approved in the first place. And this isn’t just some Podunk minor league team with little to no profile. It’s the AAA affiliate of the Washington Nationals.

“A pre-produced video from outside our front office was selected; unfortunately what was supposed to be a moving tribute ended with some misleading and offensive editing, which made a statement that was not our intent and certainly not our opinion,” the Grizzlies wrote of the video that played at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, Calif.

Here’s the video. If you don’t want to expose yourself to more than the recommended daily allowance of Reagan, skip to 3:00. That’s when it gets really batsh*t crazy.

When it comes to patriotism and decency, the GOP has no idea what that is. They think it’s all about waving the flag and allow a fruit cake run this country, who goes to foreign countries to talk down Americans and praise sadistic leaders. Real Patriotism!!!!!
