In the XVII Ibero-American Summit of 2007, the 10th of November, the Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez repeatedly interrupted the speech of the Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luís Rodriguez Zapatero, calling his predecessor (José María Aznar) “fascist”, “less human than snakes”, and accuse Aznar of having supported a failed coup d’état aimed at removing Chávez from power. Zapatero defended his predecessor, pointing out that Aznar had been democratically elected and was “a legitimate representative of the Spanish people”.
Although organizers switched off Chávez’s microphone, he continued to interrupt as Zapatero defended Aznar. Juan Carlos leaned forward, turned towards his fellow head of state, and said “¿Por qué no te callas?” (“Why don’t you shut up?”)
