Watch Conan O’Brien Improve Diplomatic Relations With Cuba

1 minute read

Conan O’Brien helped the U.S. strengthen diplomatic ties when he began this Wednesday’s episode in Cuba.

O’Brien begins the show speaking in Spanish, and then says, “This is a very historic time. Relations between Cuba and the United States are finally starting to thaw. I thought this was an amazing opportunity for me to come to Cuba, talk to the people and get to know them.”

By “get to know them,” what Conan really means is visit a cigar factory, drink a lot of rum and learn the rumba. Watch, and learn.
