Venezuela Opposition Joins in Maduro Mango Mania

Venezuelans have not stopped chortling since President Nicolas Maduro was hit by a mango and then rewarded the fruit-thrower with a new home, but now Maduro's foes are seeking to score political points from the tropical fruit. Government supporters cheered the incident as a sign of the socialist leader's common touch and care for the people and Maduro has been photographed holding mangoes with other messages on them. Opposition backers, however, derided it as cheap populism hiding a lack of serious solutions, and have tweeted photos of mangoes bearing critical messages.
