I’ll Just Quote Xi and Get Out of the Way

Can’t make this up. China’s President, Xi Jinping, met Michelle Obama during her visit to China and said:

“I wish to thank the US side for sending such a heavyweight ambassador to China.”

Yeah… he TOTALLY just called her fat.

    Oh, so she was an ambassador? Because I expressly remember her telling us that she wasn’t. That’s why she wasn’t bringing the press. It was just a(nother) vacation.

    I guess “soft diplomacy” means whatever the hell she wants it to mean.

    He didn’t just call her ‘fat’. He mocked her and her husbands administration on multiple levels with that one liner. If you know anything about the Chinese language, it is not surprising. I’ll have to ask my GF (Hong Kong born Chinese) what China’s press is saying about her visit.

    @2 – I actually don’t know a whole lot about Chinese language and culture. If your girl can offer any insights into how Lursa is being perceived locally, it’d be kinda cool if you dropped them here in the comments.
