Joe Biden Smooths China Relations With Joke About How They Own U.S.

News

The White Housesent official court jester Joe Biden for a visit with U.S. corporate parent company China to do a little self-deprecating diplomacy dance routine for China's annoyed rulers to convince them the wayward middle management in Congress won't sink their investments. Richard Nixon used to just be able to mail a few ping-pong players to Beijing and get a nice "we're cool now" note from the head office, which actually still sounds like a better idea than mailing Joe Biden to Beijing, but here we are. Now, in 2011: "You ARE national affairs," Biden quipped to Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping. What other hilarious jokes does Joe Biden have for China? 


From Reuters:

After on a stroll up the red carpet, Biden found a familiar face during introductions to the Chinese delegation.

"Remember what I told you last time: if I had hair like yours I'd be president," the 68-year-old VP with a well-groomed but receding silver hairline said.

BA-DA BING! We feel so sorry for the translators who had to work these events. And then:

"I used to have an important job when I was chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee," Biden told Wu. "I had a big office, large staff. Then I became vice president."

Members of the press pool speculated that joke, at least, may have been lost in translation.

Our favorite:

Biden apologized to members of the Chinese delegation who had to listen to him speak "again and again and again."

Dude, China, even we cannot get Joe Biden to apologize for that. We can pretty much guess who is the new favorite. [Reuters]

I wasn't ready for Koko the gorilla to die. She was just 46, so still young well past the upper age limit for a gorilla, but I'll miss her. She loved cats, told mildly amusing jokes, and put up with people, so she was a lot like your weird aunt.

Donald Trump held one of his televised cabinet meetings today in which he railed about the terrible Democrats who forced the current border crisis (at a time when illegal border crossings are actually lower than usual). In what's sure to be his favorite phrase on Twitter for the next few days, Trump blamed "extremist open-border Democrats" for all the problems he brought on himself with his family separation policy, and explained that Democrats were simultaneously hurting illegal immigrants AND the rest of America by forcing Normal America to accept Central Americans who fled to the US. It made loads of sense! And then things got ... less so.
