Ladies and gentlemen…the president of Venezuela, NICOLAS MADURO:
That’s Chavecito’s daughter, María Gabriela, helping National Assembly president Diosdado Cabello put the sash on her dad’s successor. It’s now official, legal, signed, sealed and delivered. And frankly, nobody cares what those bitches at the State Dept. think.
Meanwhile, here’s the most touching photo of the event:
The president of Argentina, Cristina Fernández, gives María Gabriela a hug. Cristina’s had some grief of her own to deal with, what with the sudden death of her husband, former president Néstor Kirchner, last year. So she knows exactly what Chavecito’s family are going through. And it’s a way for her to pay back the comfort and affection Chavecito gave her in her hour of need, too.
This is what love and solidarity look like.
