It was probably staged. The camera cut away rather quickly.

The government immediately blamed “the right”. No need to investigate I guess. He is blaming Santos as if Santos would actually do something that dumb. I guess he didn’t get the memo that Santos’ term ends in 2 days.

Quote:
“Three officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case say the incident was actually a gas tank explosion inside an apartment.

Smoke could be seen coming out of a building window at the site of the incident

Maduro is blaming the "usual suspects" (para variar).

Unofficially, it is being reported that a gas tank exploded in a nearby apartment complex.

Maybe it was not a gas tank but a pressure cooker. Some woman cooking her free government frijoles (CLAP box) got distracted with Maduro’s speech and it exploted.

Maybe it was a giant flying ***** that was controlled by remote control that almost came down crashing on him. Like a drone in the shape of a giant *****. That is one possibility.

If Maduro was to slip on a banana peel and break a bone, guess who will be blamed?

That guy is so predictable.

Meanwhile Venezuela crumbles into oblivion, a country with one of the largest oil reserves in world literally falling apart. Sad regardless which way one wants to look at it.
