President Obama's trip to China and the "stairs" incident put the bow on two terms of trying to popular rather than respected. I just hope that #45 understands what he or she is walking into.
This is what happened in China, as explained by Dr. 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.
