Communist madman Hugo Chavez’s hand-picked successor, Venezuela strongman Nicolas Maduro, who last month unilaterally revoked Venezuelan Congress’ constitutional powers, is a big fan of fellow leftist Bernie Sanders, referring to him as his “revolutionary friend,” according to a translation from Reuters.
Maduro predicted that Bernie would win the election “if the elections were free,” calling America’s electoral process an “archaic system that is 200 years old.”
Perhaps Maduro, whose
oil-rich socialist hellhole struggles to provide even the most basic of necessities — like toilet paper — (or bread, butter, sugar, etc.) because under socialism, there’s no motivation to produce anything but misery, thinks that his implied endorsement of Bernie Sanders will somehow give a boost to the wild-eyed 74-year-old socialist’s campaign.
But to many Americans — hopefully — it will be seen as a total embarrassment and a disgrace.
For his part, Bernie Sanders, who spent his honeymoon in the “workers paradise” of the communist Soviet Union, was recently given the opportunity to comment on Venezuela’s socialist nightmare and, like a coward, completely dodged the question. It was the perfect opportunity for Bernie to explain the heavenly benefits of toilet paper shortages.
Just days ago, when a Univision reporter asked Sanders to comment on Venezuela, he answered, “I am very interested, but right now I’m running for President of the United States.”
“So you don’t have an opinion about the crisis in Venezuela?” the reporter asked.
“Of course I have an opinion,” Sanders replied. “But as I said, I’m focused on my campaign.”
Part of your “campaign” Bernie, is explaining why you believe in your failed political ideology that always ends in starvation, death and destruction. Answer the damn question, Bernie!
