Back in Chigüireland Venezuela, just hours after it was announced that Colombian President, Juan Manuel Santos, was awarded with the Nobel peace prize, Nicolás Maduro created the Hugo Chávez Peace Prize for the Sovereignty of the Peoples: An award for leaders (and lideresas) with a deep commitment with peace and stuff, and who may not be considered for the Nobel.

During the unveiling of yet another statue of the Comandante, in his hometown Sabaneta de Barinas, President Maduro revealed the name of the first recipient of the Hugo Chávez Peace Prize.   

And the Hugo goes to…

VLADIMIR VLADIMIROVICH PUTIN

Mainly because… why the fuck not?

Maybe Maduro hasn’t heard of the latest shenanigans by Langley:

“Sources are confirming that the Central Intelligence Agency has orchestrated a coup d’état in the South American nation of Venezuela, toppling the country’s 30 million residents and replacing them with an entirely new, pro-American populace.”

You see how this may be a problem. Unless Trump wins, of course.

Watch this rare english-spoken villanous pitch for hosting the world expo and tell me he doesn’t deserve a peace prize:
