It’s only been a day and some good has already come from President Barack Obama’s visit to Cuba. On Monday, Raul Castro opened a Pandora’s box that he should’ve left closed after a reporter challenged the Cuban dictator/President on the subject of political prisoners.

ICYMI, President Obama and the First Family are in Cuba for a historic visit.

This is the first time a U.S. president has made a diplomatic trip to the Caribbean island since Calvin Coolidge, who traveled to Cuba in  1928 to participate in the Pan American Conference.

People are pretty damn excited to see the 44th president walk the streets of Havana.

But, things have already gone off the tracks because of one comment from current Cuban dictator, Raúl Castro.

CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Castro if he had any plans to release any political prisoners now that diplomatic ties with the US are being re-established.

“Give me a list of the political prisoners and I will release them immediately,” Castro snapped back, according to Business Insider, probably feeling like this:

“Just mention a list. What political prisoners,” he continued. “Give me a name or names or when, after this meeting is over, you can give me a list of political prisoners and if we have those political prisoners they will be released before tonight ends.”

He basically denied that Cuba is in the business of imprisoning political dissidents, leaving the world feeling like:

So, the world responded with, what else, LISTS.

That’s one of several lists that are floating around. According to the Human Rights Watch, Cuba detained just under 8,000 dissidents in 2014 alone. So, Raul, tell us again how there aren’t any dissenters in your jails right now.

Someone is Castro’s “government” is definitely feeling like this:

So, Castro…let Jeff Goldblum say it for you since you are probably too embarrassed to.

YES! The lists are right f*cking there, bro. Just admit your government is involved in some shaaaaaady business;  it’s time to change course. After all, you were supposed to release 53 political prisoners so GTFO with that “I don’t think we have any left” bull!

All we can do now is wait to see whether Castro will acknowledge the illegal imprisonment of thousands of Cubans or if he will just continue to lead the U.S. on.

From Cat Pics To Eyeliner Selfies, Kat Von D’s Instagram Proves She’s Basically All Of Us

Instagram / TheKatVonD

If you’ve never checked out tattoo artist and beauty mogul Kat Von D’s Instagram, well, what the hell have you been waiting for? She might be pretty famous, but she’s basically like any other LA girl, just hanging out, eatin’ treats, pettin’ cats and goofing off, like:

When she visited a fair and indulged in fried, sugary situation:

#VeganStreetFair party with @darbigwynn + @darlenedyani !!! ??????

Not sure what those are, but I’ll take six, pls. 

When she posed with her BFF, her dad:

  My best friend. ❤️ Este hombre, de quien hablo señor, es mi padre. #dadvond   A photo posted by Kat Von D (@thekatvond) on

D’awww!

When she was a total goofball:

Struttin’ ’round town with @chaselisbon ?

Look, some of us can’t just stand and smile for a picture, and that’s fine. 

Every time she was totally obsessed with her cats:

Piaf and Poe are kinda celebrities in their own right, really.

…and she even cuddled with them to sleep:

Sweetest of dreams.❤️

Celebrecats!

When she experimented with different eyeliner looks, just like all of us:

Don’t lie: you’re tried out different looks and then sat around, fully made-up in sweatpants with no plans to go out.

And when she even went so far as to wonder if she was an “eyeliner slut”:

Same, tbh.

When she tended to her teeth:

Oh, hi! A photo posted by Kat Von D (@thekatvond) on

See? Even celebs look absurd in a dentist’s chair.

When this happened:

I think I may have found Piaf’s Halloween costume. ??

A photo posted by Kat Von D (@thekatvond) on

Teehee. Cat butt.

When she looked back on her time as an angsty teen:

Teen Kat Von D is all of us.

When even kat, who creates makeup for a living, felt weird about getting her makeup done:

If you’ve ever gotten your makeup done, you know it can be both soothing and awkward as hell.

When she couldn’t resist drawing on a paper tablecloth:

If you put paper on your restaurant table, you know @llewellyn and I are gonna draw on it. #duh A photo posted by Kat Von D (@thekatvond) on

No one is too old to doodle on a tablecloth.

And finally, when she shared this adorable #TBT:

I dunno. Something about this kid seems a bit off, if you ask me.

Aw!
