Incident in Hangzhou; Obama’s humiliation in China is a sign of global disdain for the president.

Charles 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.
". . . Indeed, not one of the other G-20 world leaders was left stranded on his plane upon arrival."

"Did President Xi Jinping directly order airport personnel and diplomatic functionaries to deny President Obama a proper welcome? Who knows? But the message, whether intentional or not, wasn’t very subtle. The authorities expressed no regret, no remorse and certainly no apology. On the contrary, they scolded the media for even reporting the snub.
"No surprise. China’s ostentatious rudeness was perfectly reflective of the world’s general disdain for Obama. His high-minded lectures about global norms and demands that others live up to their “international obligations” are no longer amusing. They’re irritating." . . .
Other nations know what we Americans all know: when Barack Obama rises to speak we are all going to be scolded for not pleasing him. His closing insult is usually "that's not who we are."  TD
