The sad thing is that the victims of his nonsense are the Venezuelans who now wander in the streets and among the trash bins looking for crumbs and leftovers. After 15 years of Chavism, there had never been such a shortage in a country with such infinite natural resources. A shortage that is particularly affecting the poorest sectors who once voted for him and believed in the Bolivarian revolution.
