Venezuelan Socialist Dictator Endorses “Revolutionary Friend”, Comrade Bernie Sanders
If there is one thing Bernie Sanders is trying to avoid it’s comparisons between his brand of socialism and what is happening in Venezuela. Sanders has skirted the issue, even admitting he should know more about how socialism has worked in Latin America. But all that is lost now as Nicolas Maduro, the authoritarian leader of Venezuela, has heaped generous praise on senator from Vermont, calling him a “revolutionary friend.”
“Bernie Sanders, our revolutionary friend, ought to win in the United States,” Maduro said during an hours-long televised broadcast.
“If the elections were free … Bernie Sanders would be president of the United States,” he said, criticizing the U.S. Electoral College system as unrepresentative of popular sentiment.
This comes fresh off the heels of North Korean state media lauding Donald Trump. At least we know who the tyrants are pulling for!
