Epic fails are always in progress wherever Obama goes. it seems like this president can never go on a diplomatic trip without embarrassing himself or our entire country in the process. So when he made his way to China for his trip on Saturday, it was much more of the same.
Chinese leaders apparently dislike Obama just as much as we do, and decided to put their sentiments on full display for the entire world. Right after Obama landed on the runway, Chinese officials refused to provide a staircase for his royal highness to disembark from Air Force one. Instead, they made him exit from the “ass” of the airplane.
China’s leaders have been accused of delivering a calculated diplomatic snub to Barack Obama after the US president was not provided with a staircase to leave his plane during his chaotic arrival in Hangzhou before the start of the G20.
Chinese authorities have rolled out the red carpet for leaders including India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, the South Korean president, Park Geun-hye, Brazil’s president, Michel Temer, and the British prime minister, Theresa May, who touched down on Sunday morning.
But the leader of the world’s largest economy, who is on his final tour of Asia, was forced to disembark from Air Force One through a little-used exit in the plane’s belly after no rolling staircase was provided when he landed in the eastern Chinese city on Saturday afternoon.
