Spanish King To Hugo Chavez: "Shut Up!"






Mr. Chavez has some nerve to call someone a "fascist". As his own country plummets into chaos he is able to make charges against others while not stand accountable for his own deeds.

Spain's current socialist prime minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, responded during his own allotted time by urging Chavez to be more diplomatic in his words and respect other leaders despite political differences.

"Former President Aznar was democratically elected by the Spanish people and was a legitimate representative of the Spanish people," he said, eliciting applause from the gathered heads of state.

Chavez repeatedly tried to interrupt, but his microphone was off.

Spanish King Juan Carlos, seated next to Zapatero, angrily turned to Chavez and said, "Why don't you shut up?"

The Venezuelan leader did not immediately respond but later used time ceded to him by his close ally Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega to answer Zapatero's speech.
