Well shoot, if you are going to take a bribe maybe you shouldn’t do so in such a blatant fashion as our Dear Leader did last week. Taking to twitter to announce that he was so concerned about Chinese jobs at ZTE and he would have the government start buying ZTE equipment again. This despite ZTE being under sanctions for breaking sanctions imposed by the US on Iran. Plus the little matter of ZTE possibly using their phones to spy on our citizens.
This just a couple days after the Chinese government agreed to put half a billion dollars into an Indonesian project that our Dear Leader stands to make huge money from. What a coincidence! If our Dear Leader wasn’t such an honest man, one might think this was a bribe or something very much like it.
Sure too bad that we maybe get an agreement to sell a few soybeans in return for helping bring jobs back to China.
One would almost think Dear Leader could openly take a bribe in Times Square and nobody would do anything.
