Hugo Chavez's Daughter Poses With a Wad of American Cash

Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez may think America is an evil imperialist empire, but his teenage daughter Rosines sure seems to love our dollar, dollar bill, y'all. The 14-year-old snapped a picture of herself posing behind a fan of United States currency and shared it on Instagram.

It's not exactly a secret that the president's standard of living is quite a bit higher that most Venezuelan citizens, but the photo certainly doesn't help Hugo's populist image. Especially as his government has placed tight controls on how much American currency the average citizen can obtain through official rates.

It also doesn't help Chavez's anti-American image when his own teenage daughter is posing with the biggest symbol of our supposed evil: our greenbacks. She might as well be in front Old Glory with a crying bald eagle perched on her shoulder. (Turns out Rosines also has a thing for Justin Bieber, but that little eunuch is Canada's fault.)

Chavez himself has not commented on the image, but his ex-wife and Rosines' mother took to Twitter to say, "'I told her that her mistake wasn't to take the picture, but rather posting it on a medium where there are ignorant people who don't respect others."

Is that all she could make in a night table dancing? She will never be able to afford bigger boobs.

Seriously, this is supposed to scandalous? She's a silly 14 year old kid. And those American dollars aren't worth crap anyhow.

President Chavez's daughter is not nearly as offensive as Mitt Romeny and his Bain Capital co-conspirators (a/k/a co-workers) posing with their cash.

Hi there. It's not about the amount of cash she is holding in the photo, it's about what the photo represents. In Venezuela, it doesn't matter if you have tens of thousands/millions Bolívares in your bank account (and thus can afford to get any amount of $$ you wanted), you ONLY have access to $2,500.00 a year for traveling expenses, and $300.00 for 'electronic' transactions. Let's say that you want to buy an iPhone, for example, (it has to be unlocked, of course) through the Internet and with your own money: you can't. And when you travel (after you went through a long process to get your $$ approved and your credit card activated to use with $$ transactions), you must keep all of your receipts with you, because when you get back home, they will ask you for your receipts just to check how you spent your money... Plus, if your purchases exceed $1,000.00, you have to pay extra taxes to get them through Venezuela's customs and border protection, and of course, every officer that gets in front of you is going to ask you for an extra tip because 'he wants to help you'... Sorry for the essay, but yup, these are some examples of why this photo has had such an impact.

Tell that b!tch it doesn't make sense!

To Rosine there is nothing more threatening to a man than a woman who is smart and attractive. We have to pretend you're both!
