Chinese president Hu Jintao arrived in the U.S. Tuesday for a three day-visit that will also include a White House state dinner, the first dinner of its kind for a Chinese leader in 13 years.
CNN reports that the Chinese media has stated Hu “will stress how a constructive, comprehensive partnership between the powers could be mutually beneficial and help ensure stability in Asia and worldwide, despite differences between Beijing and Washington.”
The American media, meanwhile, is heralding this important visit with…CHINESE FOOD JOKES!
At least ABC News’ Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) is. As President Hu’s plane arrived, Tapper authored this tweet, which has since been deleted:
Oh, he so punny!
But, seriously, guys, he’s already apologized. And he’s really sorry, you know? And also, it wasn’t a joke belittling Asians, it was a joke belittling airplanes! And airplanes don’t have feelings, okay? Besides, it’s Twitter’s fault anyway:
And with that, Tapper’s back to punny business two tweets later:
If any of you are offended, remember Tapper is sorry, although deep down he believes that something is very, very wong with you.
