President Obama’s trip to China and the “stairs” incident put the bow on two terms of trying to popular rather than respected. I just hope that #45 understands what he or she is walking into.
This is what happened in China, as explained by Dr. Krauthammer:
The president of the United States lands with all the majesty of Air Force One, waiting to exit the front door and stride down the rolling staircase to the red-carpeted tarmac.
Except that there is no rolling staircase.
He is forced to exit — as one China expert put it rather undiplomatically — through “the ass” of the plane.
We don’t know if the incident was planned or accidental. However, all of the leaders got the usual treatment and “hope and change” didn’t. And no one apologized for doing this to the president of the U.S. As they say, actions speak louder than words.
It started in Egypt in 2009 with a speech that blamed the U.S., followed by a revolution in Iran that he didn’t pay attention to, a withdrawal from Iraq that left a vacuum for ISIS to grow and expand in, to drawing a red line that he didn’t enforce, to making a deal with Cuba that benefited the Castros not the U.S., to an Iran nuclear deal that he was desperate to make no matter how much cash the other side demanded, to allowing Iran boats to bully the U.S. Navy to Russian MiGs flying feet over our ships.
Wonder what’s next on the long line of cheap shots at the U.S.?
We are living in extremely dangerous times and President Obama does not have a clue. Worse than that, no one in the U.S. media is bothering to ask him about it or hold him accountable for the disarray. The media is obsessed with Trump, Mrs. Clinton is promising not to send ground troops and our enemies are enjoying it a great deal.
The Chinese forgot the donkey to remind our president that he is a Democrat and something else that I’ll leave to your imagination.
