Some call him a toad or a spider, others think he’s the biggest tiger yet to be caught…

Many make jokes about his huge belly. All in all, he’s not a popular guy.

This caricature of Jiang Zemin, once the head of the Chinese Communist Party, was recently censored on Sina Weibo, along with its caption.

The post said:

Breaking… People are saying big news is about to happen at the 301 Hospital that will excite the whole nation!

Beijing’s 301 Hospital is also known as the General Hospital of the People’s Liberation Army, and provides medical care to Communist Party leaders, the Central Military Commission, the PLA General Headquarters, and troops stationed in the capital.

Another version of the image appeared online with these four characters, saying he’s so generous and tolerant that there’s a universe in his heart.

The blogger was being sarcastic because Jiang has a reputation for getting jealous and not being at all generous. And it’s his belly that’s big, not his heart.
