    China & The Donald, sitting in a tree,

    Getting headlines like this one:

    China has welcomed Trump with the most spectacular display of diplomacy in the country’s history

    Oddly enough, I haven't seen the media compare this to Obama's experience, when China seemed to forget which end of the plane he was going to come out.

    I don't think China has forgotten, though, and I don't imagine the contrast is irrelevant.

    Probably the intended audience sits in Pyongyang.

    And I believe the Chinese are responding to Trump's business chops, as it were. His Mandarin-speaking daughter has become a sensation over there, and Trump understands the value of such personal touches.

    But underneath it all is another message, likely the worst kept secret since Harvey Weinstein's sexual proclivities: There was widespread disdain for President Obama among world leaders.

    How embarrassing. China is mocking Trump's vanity.

    Hardly surprising. China has contempt for all environmental concerns, even the ones the Republicans favor - developmentally, as a country and a culture, they're still back where we were when the railroads, the mines, and the factories were kings, and the people who worked in them and lived near them merely interchangeable, expendable parts to be thrown on the ever-growing trash heap when they broke down. Likewise the land and natural resources those industries consumed without putting anything back.

    Add to that the culture, which makes ours look like a model of social equality. Japan, Korea and China are probably the 3 most caste-driven cultures outside India. HRH watches Korean TV and videos; they're quite open about the belief that lighter skin equals prettier, smarter and just better. The Chinese still prize pale skin and naturally small feet (and male children over female), despite their communist/egalitarian party line. And the Japanese are openly contemptuous of Japanese who mix their superior genes with those of ANY other race, dark or light.

    With good reason.
