Obama disrespected on final Asia trip

Washington Times   "On President Obama’s final trip to Asia, his impending lame-duck status is showing.

"Mr. Obama, who arrived in Laos late Monday night to become the first U.S. president ever to visit the Southeast Asian country, is encountering more than his usual share of friction and confrontation on his 10th trip to the region.
"It started with his arrival at the airport in China, where Chinese officials failed to provide a portable staircase for Mr. Obama to disembark from the upper door of Air Force One with the typical grandiose visibility befitting a visiting head of state. Instead, the president emerged from a smaller staircase in the belly of the aircraft, and many saw it as a deliberate sign of disrespect by the Chinese.
"Republican nominee Donald Trump said he would have refused to meet with Chinese officials if they treated him like they treated Mr. Obama.
“ 'If that were me, I’d say, ‘You know what, folks, I respect you a lot, let’s close the doors, let’s get out of here,’ ” he said Monday.
"Mr. Obama downplayed the episode, and Chinese officials blamed the U.S. for not requesting a staircase." . . .
Disrespecting Obama  (Diss'ed for short on the streets) "Scott and Paul have already commented on the Chinese leaders’ calculated insults to Barack Obama when he landed in China for the G20 conference. But the hostility toward our president didn’t stop there.

"One of Obama’s priorities for the G20 meeting was to negotiate a joint effort in Syria with Vladimir Putin. So far, at least, that hasn’t happened. The main news about their meeting is the “death stare” that they exchanged:" . . .
A stare Obama generally uses only on Republicans.

Philippine president calls Obama an SOB  . . . "Let Duterte rant.  The U.S. should continue to speak out against this murderous rampage.
Thomas Lifson adds:
"How about Saudi Arabia, where they do much worse? In fact a lot of our allies have policies that violate our sense of rights. Why pick on the Philippines?" Rick Moran
Add to that Mr. Obama's refusal to back the Iranian Green Revolution against the Mullah's rule. TD

. . . "Perhaps the unkindest cut of all came when Xi praised the Paris agreement to limit carbon emissions, the issue on which Obama had come to take a victory lap, "It was under Chinese leadership that much of this progress was made.' " . . .
