During a televised speech on Thursday, Venezuelan dictator Nicolas
Maduro reached into his desk, pulled out an empanada, and took a
healthy bite:

Meanwhile, the nation over which Maduro rules starves to death.

According to The Wall Street Journal:

The most recent Caritas study of 800 children under the age
of 5 in Yare and three other communities showed that in
February nearly 11% suffered from severe acute malnutrition,
which is potentially fatal, compared with 8.7% in October.
Caritas said nearly a fifth of children under age 5 in those
four communities suffered from chronic malnutrition, which
stunts growth and could mark a generation. ...

Nine in 10 homes said they don’t make enough money to buy all
their food, according to the poll of living conditions. Nearly
a third of Venezuelans, 9.6 million people, eat two or fewer
meals a day, up from 12.1% in 2015, the poll found; four of
out five in the nation are now poor.

The food crisis in Venezuela is so dire that some citizens have
resorted to eating dogs, raiding farms, and digging through garbage for
scraps of food.

As Nicolas Maduro consolidates power and feeds himself empanadas, his
people are dying in the streets.

have to audit liberals & wire tap reporters' phones.

It's amazing how guys like this are so blind to what has historically
happened to other dictators who are openly contemptuous of the people like
that. That's the sort of behavior that landed Louis XVI's head in the
guillotine.

Thanny only worries about the citizens of OTHER countries who are
starving, or are in need.

Myabe instead of worrying about Venezuela, he might look at the people
of Puerto Rico who are dying because they're drinking tainted water.

All while their King jets off to one of his resort hotels, for a nice
piece of chocolate cake.
Insert Marie Antoinette metaphor here...

Marie Antoinette never actually said anything about cake in that context.

The phrase "Let them eat cake" is often attributed to Marie Antoinette, but
there is no evidence she ever uttered it, and it is now generally regarded
as a "journalistic cliché". This phrase originally appeared in Book VI of
the first part (finished in 1767, published in 1782) of Jean-Jacques
Rousseau's putative autobiographical work, Les Confessions: "Enfin je me
rappelai le pis-aller d'une grande princesse à qui l'on disait que les
paysans n'avaient pas de pain, et qui répondit: Qu'ils mangent de la
brioche" ("Finally I recalled the stopgap solution of a great princess who
was told that the peasants had no bread, and who responded: 'Let them eat
brioche'"). Apart from the fact that Rousseau ascribes these words to an
unknown princess, vaguely referred to as a "great princess", the purported
writing date precedes Marie Antoinette's arrival in France. Some believe
that he invented it altogether.

There's no evidence she never traveled to Pluto, either, but we don't

Now this is interesting: so in your diseased, warped, shit for brains
mind you think that travelling to Pluto is just as likely as Antoinette
uttering the French equivalent of a four word phrase that sounds very
likely to be something she said? I really, really don't understand how
someone that has even a weak education such as yourself can constantly
succumb to these false equivalencies. Has recreational drug use fried
your ability to think rationally like it has with Trump?
