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.
