President Obama was in China on serious diplomatic business. He stopped there as part of his Asia tour. He hoped to make strides in preventing climate change with the cooperation of China.
He arrived during the APEC summit, but was criticized for chewing gum.
Was chewing gum the highlight of Obama’s China trip?
But David Letterman gives us some perspective. He compares how China allows child labor, torture, and human rights abuses to go on, but won’t tolerate chewing gum.
