On Friday, Lee claimed, “By putting [General] John Kelly in charge, [President] Trump is militarizing the White House [and] putting our executive branch in the hands of an extremist.”

Outgoing White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer condemned the remarks, describing it as “wrong” and “offensive on multiple levels.

Communist magazine People’s Weekly World reportedly listed Lee as a co-sponsor for a Communist Party USA (CPUSA) event in 1999.

In 2002, Lee also received the endorsement of the CPUSA for her Congressional race, alongside former Rep. Mike Honda. The party’s national board wrote in a report:

The priority labor campaigns deserve our support. In addition our work will take us beyond these races to election districts where we have organization and where there are strong pro-labor candidates, African American, Mexican American and Latino candidates such as Rep. Mike Honda and Rep. Barbara Lee.

At a 2003 People’s Weekly World fundraising luncheon, “Each honoree received a special congressional certificate from Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee, in whose district the banquet was held.”
Keepin' it real!

Following Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro’s death last November, Lee said she “was very sad for the Cuban people,” claiming Castro “led a revolution in Cuba that led social improvements for his people,” ignoring his legacy of mass murder, totalitarianism, and widespread poverty. Lee used the death of Castro, who she met with eight times throughout her career, to attack then-President Elect Donald Trump.
