Why was Sean Penn in Venezuela for Hugo Chavez’s funeral? Because Chavez was a friend Penn was “blessed to have.”

Love the headline on Fox News… “World leaders….and Sean Penn….gather for Hugo Chavez’ funeral”

Make that, “World leaders and Sean Penn and Jesse Jackson” attend dictator’s funeral.

Oh, and Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was there as well, and gave the casket a quick smooch.

Can’t wait to see a blubbering Sean Penn go all I Am Sam while clutching Chavez’s coffin.

I don’t know about you but I, for one, am willing to give Venezuela Sean Penn and allow it to keep him as a gesture of friendship.

Even Mario Lopez is stumped.
Reading all about Hugo Chavez & I find it bizarre that he and Sean Penn were such good friends. How did that relationship happen??

“Scandal” star Josh Malina tries to explain the logistics.
Sean Penn was friends with Chavez, and Chavez was friends with Ahmadinejad. So, by the Transitive Law, Sean Penn is a tiny douchebag.
