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.

This is not the time for profanity or cursing the dead. He is in the hands of God, now. Let's pray for his soul, and that the Lord will give the US a friend in charge there now.

Although I'm hardly a fan, he didn't hate "America" he hated the Bush Administration.
