Mr. Rumsfeld wasn’t the only member of the Bush administration who was the target of Chávez’s ire. Then-Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice also received her share of insults.
Chávez responded during a weekly broadcast in February 2006:
“Remember, little girl, I'm like the thorn tree that flowers on the plain. I waft my scent to passersby and prick he who shakes me. Don't mess with me, Condoleezza. Don't mess with me, girl.”
He then blew a kiss at the camera.
