In the real world, Biden is tough on Cuba. In the right-wing world, he’s pro-Communist.

In the real world, President Biden is governing from the center-left with the support of the majority of the country. His biggest legislative achievement — the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan — is so popular that some Republicans are claiming credit for it even after voting against it.

In the right-wing world, however, Biden is either a dangerous left-wing radical or a senile tool of dangerous left-wing radicals — take your pick. At a Phoenix rally on Saturday, former president Donald Trump castigated the “radical left Democrat communist party” and warned that “we are becoming a communist country.” Making these charges stick would represent the triumph of rhetoric over reality.

Cuba offers a case in point.
