Xi calls Biden ‘my old friend’ after US president had insisted they were not close
Xi’s choice of words to describe the relationship also contradicted what Psaki had said earlier the same day
I just might buy this book and send it to K J (Kamikaze Joe). The man does not have one diplomatic bone in his ignorant body.
XI: “It’s the first time for us to meet virtually. Although it’s not as good as a face-to-face meeting, I’m very happy to see my old friend,” Xi said through a translator at the start of the meeting.
Ignorant Biden: “Let’s get something straight: we know each other well, we’re not old friends,” Biden said. “It’s just pure business.”
K J had the balls to call The Judo Guy a killer on several occasions. Now he is telling the other most powerful guy in the world; we were never friends. Coming off tough and disrespectful with these people will do nothing but stir up the hornets in the nest. Incident like this just demonstrate just how ignorant K J really is.
WFT is the matter with this fool. The one thing any intelligent person never does is to deliberately insult anyone, especially people that possess the power these two men have, even if they may be right. K J does not know, it is better to have a good relationship with them both than not.
One of the most important things in Oriental culture is SAVING FACE.
The Chinese concept of “face” (aka 面子 or miànzi) refers to a cultural understanding of respect, honor and social standing. Actions or words that are disrespectful may cause somebody to “lose face” while gifts, awards and other respect-giving actions may “give face”.
I am positive that by now the entire Chinese nation is aware of K J’s disrespectful comment to their leader and has less respect for the USA than ever before. It is sinful we have such an incompetent representing us.
Should we really believe that the Xi really meant K J was an old friend?? Hell no. The man is just trying to use diplomacy; something K J has none of.
The entire world is walking on egg shells anticipating China’s next move on taking over the world; something they are very adamant about doing. Now we have the fool we call the president poking the bear with a vey big stick.
K J better reevaluate his position and fine tune his dialog when dealing with X I and Putin; for that matter everyone he deals with. After all there is only one person that SUPPOSEDLY could walk on water.
I am not suggesting KL J kiss their ass, BUTT I am suggesting he should be smart enough to know, we are better off with their camaraderie than not. Name calling and insults will not score K J any points with either men.
Most of the media and politicians put the bad rap on PDT when he was dealing with N K’s Kid Dick-Tator, suggesting he liked the kid and admired him.
At the time I said; bull-shit. Trump is a wheeler-dealer and knows how to schmooze the guy and get more bees with honey than with lemons. Beside his very abrasive personality at times; Trump is a great diplomat.
In one breath K J insults XI; in the next he says: Biden called for the establishment of “common sense guardrails” to prevent disputes from escalating to conflict and for collaboration on climate change and other “vital global issues.”
Wake up K J; we do not establishment of “common sense guardrails” to prevent disputes from escalating to conflict by insulting the person we are dealing with.
This is not Scranton PA Joe where you are playing stick ball with the kids in the streets. You are in the big leagues and should act accordingly. JOEY BOY, gotta learn how to play the game. You been eating out of the governments buffet for almost 50 years, one would have thought you learned something by now.
It is far too late to try tune-up and polish up this old wrecked car called the president. If the puppeteers that pull his strings are smart (I know they are conniving) and want to keep world peace, they should have someone else doing the PR work for the USA. This fool is destroying us a little at a time.
Forget Car-mella; she is worse than K J.
