Venezuela’s Maduro Upsets Spaniards, Again

A chip off the old block. Venezuela’s President Maduro continues his Hugo Chavez-like antics when he called Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy a “hitman,” prompting the Spanish government to once again summons the Venezuelan ambassador.

The Spanish foreign ministry has summoned the Venezuelan ambassador to once again protest comments by Venezuela’s president against Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.

The ministry said in a statement it had expressed to Ambassador Mario Isea on Monday the government’s “dislike and rejection of the unacceptable insults made once again” by President Nicolas Maduro.

Maduro on Saturday called Rajoy a “hitman” in comments on the European Union’s handling of the Greek crisis.

The ambassador was summoned in April for similar reasons and Spain later temporarily recalled its ambassador to Venezuela.

Remember, Maduro once said the Hugo Chavez visited him in the form of a bird.

Food for thought.
