The recent military uprising in Venezuela, which was called for by U.S.-backed President Juan Guaido, had Dictator Nicolas Maduro on the ropes, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated that Maduro “had an airplane on the tarmac” and was “heading for Havana” to find refuge.
“He had an airplane on the tarmac. He was ready to leave this morning, as we understand it. And the Russians indicated he should stay,” Pompeo told CNN. “He was headed for Havana,” the secretary of state added, referring to the Cuban capital.
Maduro proclaimed that the “coup” attempt by Guaido and opposition forces has been defeated, but now the embattled “criminal” dictator is looking around to find out which of his so-called trusted government loyalists took part in the attempt on his leadership.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R), who has been relentless in his social media opposition against the “Maduro crime family,” used images from the Godfather II to depict how Maduro may be feeling after being betrayed.
Rubio uses the image of Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) kissing his brother Fredo in Cuba when he discovered that his brother had betrayed him. Rubio then posted the image of Fredo’s last living moments on the lake.
“There is a plane waiting for us to take us to Miami…I know it was you Fredo, you broke my heart.”
If Maduro remains in power what do you think their future holds?
