It’s almost 5:00 pm EST and the best Venezuela new source has now been shut down, I asume by Maduro’s men. The latest news is that Maduro’s forces are burning aid supplies and shooting protesters.
Meanwhile, US media, including FR, is regurgitating the usual shite; AOC, the OSCARs, Jussie, etc.,
Puerto Rico reporting that Venezuela navy threatened PR aid ship:

Madero sure is feeling full of his beans with Russia sitting on his runway. Quite the ceremony yesterday thanking Russia for medicines, and today he burns food. Typical Marxist scumbag.
Madurom kept the aid out.
