GOP Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) blasted Obama supporters Beyonce and Jay Z for boycotting Florida but vacationing in Communist Cuba.
The Hill reported:

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) slammed rapper Jay Z for joining Stevie Wonder’s boycott of Florida after traveling to Cuba.

The rapper and a number of other entertainers, including Kanye West and Justin Timberlake, have reportedly joined Wonder’s protest of Florida’s “stand your ground” law.

“Look, thank God we live in a free country, and people can opt to be silly and foolish, but that’s a contrast — they go to Cuba, and that’s okay,” Diaz-Balart said Tuesday on the Laura Ingraham radio show.

“They hobnob with the regime; that’s okay. But they won’t go to Florida, where we’re free. That’s their choice, but I think their priorities are a little bit off.”
