Jesse Jackson compared former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to America’s first US presidents.
Jackson attended Chavez’s funeral yesterday in Caracas.
Conservative Video has the transcript:
Wolf Blitzer: “What do you say to the Venezuelans, not only in the opposition but those who have fled the country, who considered Hugo Chavez a vile dictator?”
Jesse Jackson: “Well, you know, democracies mature, Our first 15 presidents owned people. They owned slaves. Democracies mature.”
