    For those who don't know, this was the President of Venezuela that said he wanted socialism and ended up as a dictator. The bust now resides in the Oval Office.

    NBC said it "stirs excitement".

    'That's Cesar Chavez!': Bust of civil rights icon behind President Joe Biden stirs excitement

    Is it exciting for you? Why?
    Is it not exciting for you? Why?


    EDIT!

    I have made a mistake... Venezuelan president was Hugo Chavez.

    Cesar did a great job supporting the abused workers.

    No, the President of Venezuela was Hugo Chavez.

    César Chavez was an American human rights activist.

    It's not Hugo Chavez the Venezuelan president. It's this Cesar Chavez; an American civil rights activist and labor organiserr that died in 93. Get your fact straight please.

    Once again, honestly @KenS and I mean this with sincerity and without malice: You wouldn't get into these situations so frequently if you just took five minutes to google things.

    Or look at the bust and quickly realising it looks nothing like Hugo Chavez and that it would be pretty weird for a POTUS to have the bust of a foreign political leader who was maligned and opposed by the US government, including by the current POTUS.

    You seem to glom onto anything that supports your political views regardless of the truth of the matter.

    Wasn't accusing you of malice. Was saying that my statement was with sincerity and without malice. "I mean this with sincerity and without malice"

    But jumping to conclusions is good exercise for the brain.

    Now, consider you knee jerked yourself into a hella reaction that is embarrassingly wrong. So eager to criticize and potentially demonize, it seems, that you really jumped the gun on this one.
    And as this one seems to be unknown to Trumpeters; Hugo Chavez died several years ago.

    I am glad to see you make an acknowledgement of your error. This is the sort of error that an ideologue tends to make. People on both the right and the left can jump to conclusions on a faulty misunderstanding. Sometimes have a bit of self doubt can be an asset.

    No kidding. You really need to take a few minutes and see what you are actually posting. This isn't the first time you jumped to a conclusion because you didn't do five minutes of research.

    Oh FFS... I understand that you confused two different people but even so, what kind of cartoon world do you live in to believe that Biden would actually display a Hugo Chavez bust? How would that be plausable or make sense?
