The hapless Marie Antionette supposedly said, “Let them eat cake!”
Maduro is saying “Peace will prevail.”
“Peace will prevail,” the former bus driver says in one video as he drives other ruling-party officials through a middle-class neighborhood in his car. The footage inadvertently shows them cruising past graffiti that calls the president a “murderer of students,” an apparent reference to some of the people killed in numerous clashes between demonstrators and security forces.
“With Montalbán neighbors, sharing ideas and betting with the middle class for peace and coexistence.”

The article doesn’t mention that Maduro’s show must be carried by all licensed radio and TV stations under penalty of law.
I wasn’t sure whether to call Maduro “Caracas Chuck,” a la Baghdad Bob, or Madurantoinette. I went with the latter since we don’t know who’ll be in charge after he’s done.
