Report: ‘Viva Raul!’ and ‘Viva Obama!’ Heard at Cuba Embassy Opening

NBC News correspondent Luke Russert reported that protesters at the opening of Cuba’s embassy in Washington, DC were shouting “Viva Raul!” and “Viva Obama!” on Monday’s broadcast of “The Rundown with Jose Diaz-Balart” on MSNBC.

Russert said, when asked what he was hearing from the protesters at the embassy’s opening, “Well, most of the protesters are actually in favor of this, and they’re shouting, ‘Viva Raul!’ ‘Viva Obama!’ I’m sure he’s probably not thrilled to be intertwined with Raul that directly.”
