Recently, the Biden administration announced a diplomatic boycott for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic games.
The administration said that the boycott is “the right move” and sends a “clear” message that America does not agree with China’s long history of human rights abuses.
Chinese Foreign Minster Zhao Lijian was the first to mock the president.
“US politicians keep hyping a ‘diplomatic boycott’ without even being invited to the Games,” ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said. “This wishful thinking and pure grandstanding is aimed at political manipulation. It is a grave travesty of the spirit of the Olympic Charter, a blatant political provocation and a serious affront to the 1.4 billion Chinese people.”
Chinese government run media outlets soon followed suit and mocked Biden in a way they never would have if Trump was in office.
Chen Weihua, a notoriously misogynistic editor with the state-run China Daily, repeatedly responded to news of the diplomatic “boycott” by stating, “you’re not invited.”
“You’re not invited and not welcome, Mr Biden,” Chen wrote. “Hope you will live long enough to see China boycotting Los Angeles Summer Games in 2028.”
Chen regularly mocks Biden for his age on Twitter and suggests that Biden is suffering from dementia.
In another post, Chen repeated, “you are not welcome anyway,” accusing American diplomats of having “too much virus” – a reference to the Chinese coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China, and became the driver of an ongoing pandemic that the Chinese Communist Party directly caused.
Another Chinese propagandists Hu Xijin, editor in chief for the state run Global Times called Biden a super spreader and “super narcissistic.”
Only super narcissistic people will regard their absence as a powerful boycott. Most of those US govt officials are close contacts of the COVID-19 patients according to China’s standard, moreover picky and pretentious. You are the people that Beijing residents least want to see. https://t.co/jMrrmBHr8G
