Hugo Chavez

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.

Too bad it wasn't from a bullet to the head, execution style, after a fair trial. Good riddance!

He may have hated America but he gave a lot of free oil to the poor here. Don't see our own oil companys doing that.

What a coincidence. Just saw a commercial that had joseph Kennedy praising Chavez. Almost threw up. Guess he's gonna have to pick another fascist tyrant to praise.
