article imageVenezuelan Politician attacks TV host in slapping frenzy

By Chris V. Thangham     Nov 23, 2007 in Politics
A Venezuelan politician, a member of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s party, became enraged and started attacking her TV interviewer in a live broadcast. She also destroyed the furniture at the set.
President Hugo Chavez is a volatile figure, it appears his members also exhibit similar traits. Iris Varela, the politician, shown in the Spanish language video appeared for a live interview in a TV show which was broadcast live to the public.
Ms. Varela appears enraged from the beginning and starts to slap the show’s host Gustavo Azocar for defaming her in a book according to the Associated Press news.
She slapped Azocar several times in the face, ripped his microphone and starts to beat him with it. She breaks the furniture at the set and storms off the TV studio.
She hasn’t responded why she acted the way she did at the show, but it appears, Azocar has written a book that defamed her. He had said in the book that her son’s death was a defining moment in her life. She was upset about this and wanted him to apologize to her on the TV show, since he didn’t, she started slapping him.
I don’t know whether this behavior is acceptable in Venezuela or not, but if this happens here, it will be the end of the politician’s career.
