Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has died ... this according to Venezuelan Vice President Nicolas Maduro. 

Maduro -- who was fighting back tears during the announcement -- said Chavez died today at 4:25 PM.

Chavez had been in Cuba for months, where he was receiving treatment for a mystery illness that turned out to be cancer.

Chavez hated America ... and blamed all of the world's problems on the United States.

To paraphrase Ben Affleck ... Hugo f**k yourself. 

He was 58.

Even someone as powerful and corrupt as Chavez can't stop death. This is a perfect example of how death doesn't care if you are rich or poor, in the end we all die.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Good riddance to that sallow-skinned blubber-riddled fascist dictating machismo trashbag.
