China’s take on Trump catching Covid-19

In China on 04/10/2020 at 2:23 pm

The editor of the state-owned Global Times newspaper, Hu Xijin, tweeted in English: “President Trump and the First Lady have paid the price for his gamble to play down the Covid-19.”

For those not in the know, the Global Times is the Chinese govt’s equivalent of the progressives’ New York Times and the Guardian, and the S’pore govt’s Straits Times: whatever the masters want, they’ll parrot unthinkingly.

And to my mind, the Chinese are right. He’s paying the price of saying, “The risk is very, very low”, “Covid? I’m not concerned” and “Infections will be close to zero”. His words are is awkward for The Donald.

Karma is a bitch. “Kung flu” aka “China virus” has floored the “stable genius”.
