Manners and protocol lapses

Obama & Putin in China

by BeasPeas

'More Opinions, Politics & Comments' ~ #10-401-B

While the protocol infraction may seem minor,
should Obama chew his gum while in China?
Chinese snicker and pan him in twitters.
Translates into bad manners, giving them jitters.
To President Xi Jinping it signals an affliction,
even if it's Nicorette for tobacco addiction.
Putin doesn't seem to fare much better
by handing Mrs. Xi Jinping a sweater.
Heartthrob of Russia with high testosterone,
he's chided to leave other men's women alone.
The complaints and frowns, the ups and downs
confirm belief that politicians are clowns.

Diplomacy in China off to a challenging start with two world leaders showing lapses in protocol--Obama chewing gum and Putin attentive to Chinese president's wife, both actions causing raised eyebrows.
