Mia Khalifa, the unknown Florida State fan I came across nearly seven years ago and put into Morning Screencaps, is now being accused by Cuban leadership of working with the U.S. government to cause demonstrations in Havana. Seriously, we're talking about the Bang Bros. legend who, in 2014, told me via DMs about her fascination with ESPN GameDay analysts, is now being credited by Cuba for fueling people in the streets screaming about freedom.
Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel is blaming the street protest on influencers and name-dropped Mia Khalifa during a Monday morning television appearance. Is this real life? Are you kidding me right now? We're literally talking about a former porn actress, who told me about how she'd have sex with Lee Corso, being blamed by a dictatorship for an uprising.
What would lead Díaz-Canel to believe Khalifa is behind the citizens taking to the streets demanding freedom? He hasn't laid out the evidence. Perhaps he's just mad at Mia for this tweet Friday during happy hour. Maybe he thinks the poor people in his nation were just waiting for Mia's word before taking to the streets.
Can you imagine Joe Biden's team getting on the phone to Mia to ask her how much it would cost to lead an uprising against Cuba? Stop and think about this bizarro world we're talking about here. How do you even price out such an assignment? Do you sell tweets to the U.S. government like this one?
Then how do the poor people even see the tweets? Do they get on iPhone 1s to see if Mia's tweets made it through on some illegal Twitter feed beamed in from Miami? Are you this crazy, Diaz-Canel? I guess so if you're giving this woman so much credit here.
Trust me, I found Mia to be highly intelligent when I dealt with her and she has a deep command of the English language, but she never came across as someone who could lead a revolution to overthrow the Cuban government.
