Yesterday the White House played host to the Prime Minister of Japan and let’s just say they didn’t exactly put their best foot forward.
Rather than begin the visit with the standard “President and First Lady greet the foreign leader at the front doors” tradition, you know, like this …
. . . Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga was greeted at the front door . . .
I’m sure that will make Japan feel special.
In fact, his visit didn’t even begin with the traditional drive to the White House front door. Instead, he got shuttled to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next door to be greeted, not by President🤣 Biden, but Kamala Harris.
Was this part of Kamala’s search for the “root causes” of our border crisis? Does she think Japan is to blame?
But remember folks “The adults are back in charge!” Yup, diplomacy and respect for America’s allies are back, baby!
Except for you, Japan.
Look at Prime Minister Suga’s face in that video. Even the mask on his face can’t hide the fact that he’s got a full-on stink-eye deployed here.
Can you blame him?
You hold the top job in Japanese government and instead of being greeted by the guy in the top job here, you get his backup dancer.
The Biden White House deserves every ounce of stink from that stink-eye.
In hindsight, though. I suppose it’s probably a good thing PM Suga wasn’t met by Joe Biden. Because when Joe Biden finally did turn up, his trademark racism reared its ugly head.
“You got a Japanese boy coming over here and guess what? He won the Masters.”
Sweet merciful Zeus.
Japanese boy? Yeah, a “boy” of 29.
Just wait until Mazie Hirono and Tammy Duckworth hear about this.
Then again, they won’t say a word. Neither will that big girl’s blouse George Takei. He won’t be tweeting his outrage over Biden calling a 29-year-old professional golfer from Japan a “boy.” But if Trump had said the same thing? George would be kicking his outrage to Warp 10, while Mazie and Tammy would be calling for Trump’s impeachment.
Something tells me if Iran’s Foreign Minister turned up at the White House, he would get the VIP Treatment. The Bidens would be there at the front door ready to greet him – Jill in her very best Pussycat Doll outfit and Joe carting a pallet stacked with cash.
But for Japan – America’s greatest ally in Asia? Japan gets NIP Treatment (“not important person” – what did you think I meant?!)
For all his talk about how Trump embarrassed the world, Biden disrespecting Prime Minister Suga this way isn’t just embarrassing. He succeeded in shaming Japan. A nation and culture that doesn’t take such slights at all well.
Great work, Team!
