I don’t know about you, kiddies, but I’m really starting to dig this Nicolás Maduro dude. Last week, his pipsqueak escualido rival, Majunche Capriles Radonski, in between crowing about how ding-dong, the wicked ‘Cito was dead, was cackling about how the former foreign minister, then vice-president, and now acting president (por ahora) used to be a bus driver before he went into politics. Well, get a load of the bus driver now:
Nicolás Maduro is still driving buses, but this time, it’s in his capacity as president, and he’s doing it as part of a government mission: to provide dignified housing to those in need. He’s taking 61 families “on the road to socialism” to their new digs in La Guaira, where they’ll receive the keys to a better life. In other words: He’s delivering on the promises the late Comandante Chávez made.
And with bravura moments like these, it seems he’s taken a leaf from Chavecito’s book and put his own stamp on it, too. ¡Muy bien hecho!
