While His Citizens Starve, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro Shows Off Expensive Taste on Instagram

How sick is this?

Published

It is astounding how many clueless aspiring socialists there are in the United States as we can watch in real time exactly how awful socialist policies are for the people of a nation in which they are fully implemented.

Free health care and education mean very little when there’s no medicine or food, which is precisely what it is like in Venezuela, where people are starving, hunting for dogs and digging through garbage in the streets as their president, Nicolas Maduro, still lives quite comfortably.

In fact, during a recent trip to China to solicit aid for his cash-starved government, he enjoyed a lavish steak dinner with social media celebrity chef Nusret Gokce during a stopover in Istanbul with seemingly little self-awareness just how insane it was to dine on steak while his own people rarely see red meat…let alone frequent meals.

Trending: Obama’s Border Patrol Chief Says Trump Isn’t Making Up Border Emergency

Reuters reports:

Turkish celebrity chef Nusret Gokce, who owns a chain of restaurants and is known as Salt Bae for his theatrical style of sprinkling salt on his steaks, posted videos and photos on his Instagram and Twitter pages showing Maduro and his wife, Cilia, dining.

In one video, Maduro tells fellow diners, “This is a once in a lifetime moment,” as Gokce dramatically slices steak for them by their table while swaying his hips. In another video, Maduro smokes a cigar taken from a box with a plaque of his name.

Maduro confirmed the visit in a state broadcast later on Monday. Gokce did not respond to an email seeking comment.

Venezuela’s political opposition jumped on the meal as evidence of Maduro’s disconnect from the country’s crisis, which has caused over 2 million people to emigrate to escape widespread shortages of food and medicine.

Almost two-thirds of Venezuelans surveyed in a university study published in February said they had lost on average 11 kilograms (24 lbs) in body weight last year. Eighty-seven percent were assessed to live in poverty.

“While Venezuelans suffer and die of hunger, Nicolas Maduro and Cilia enjoy one of the priciest restaurants in the world, all with money stolen from the Venezuelan people,” tweeted opposition leader Julio Borges, the former head of Congress.

On social media, Venezuelans shared mocked-up images showing Gokce doing his trade-mark salt sprinkle pose above a skeletal child.

You see, uninformed aspiring American socialists, despite having multiple regimes such as Maduro’s as a reference point, seem to either willingly ignore or somehow have never noticed that this is simply par for the course for a socialist leader.

At the end of the day, socialist governments never actually redistribute the wealth from the 1% to the 99%…they just eventually become the 1% themselves.

Secret Facebook Account Linked to Obama Family Contains Anti-Trump Tirades

We’re not surprised at the content, but the clandestine page certainly threw us for a loop.

Barack Obama

The “resistance” to President Donald J. Trump has taken many forms, not the least of which has been irate and irrefutably blind anger from a number of political heavy hitters.

Of course, the most damning of these incidents, at least from the world of strictly politics, was Maxine Waters’ insistence that her constituents seek out and harass conservatives where they live, eat, breathe, and sleep.

And while it’s not surprising to find out that a former First Daughter wasn’t too keen on Trump in the Oval Office, the discovery of her secret Facebook page has lent a bizarre twist to the tale.

Malia Obama described President Trump as ‘evil’ on a secret Facebook page where she exchanges messages friends including Joe Biden’s granddaughter, DailyMail.com can reveal.

The Facebook page operates under a pseudonym and does not appear to have been publicly updated since 2017.

Its cover photograph is of a row of pink post-it notes which read: ‘Donald Trump is President,’ ‘This is not normal’, ‘Donald Trump is evil’ and ‘Don’t be complacent.’

Among the comments written beneath the photograph is one by Biden’s 20-year-old granddaughter Finnegan.

She said: ‘Never saw this. I like it.’

The Obamas are certainly no fans of the Trumps, with the former President’s administration now facing accusations over spying against the Trump campaign in the run-up to the 2016 election.

From the video, we learn that a boy in a “Make America Great Again” hat walked into a Vans store in Oak Park Mall, in Overland, Kansas. And as soon as he did, the employee began berating the kid.

The video was taken by the mother of the boy who marched back into the store to ask why the employee ridiculed her son.

The video shows the mother confronting store workers:

“He did nothing to you,” the mom said. “What did you say to my son, to my 14-year-old?”

“I’m sure he’s heard it before,” he replied.

The mom then talked to the manager about the incident.

Despite the employee and his in-store supervisor essentially shrugging off the verbal abuse, the Vans company has reported that the employee was fired.

“He is no longer with the company,” a Vans spokesperson said. “Our focus is to provide the best customer service experience. We did let this employee go. He is no longer with our company. The actions and comments from this employee at the Oak Park location is in contrast with our values and beliefs
