President Obama traveled to Miami Friday to deliver a speech on putting Americans back to work by having them rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. Only, before his event, someone – most likely from the White House – noticed a problem with the Mise en scène.
Framing Obama during his remarks would be a crane. A Chinese crane.
No, that’s not some kind of exotic bird, it’s a piece of machinery made in China.
This was made evident by an acronym on crane, ZPMC, which appeared in a couple of places and signalled it was produced by a Chinese machine manufacturing company. So what to do?
Some genius decided it would be clever to cover the letters with American flags. That’s kind of disturbing. Even you think reverence for the flag quaint, this seems not quite its proper usage.
Anyway, one of the flags blew off, exposing the ploy. You can see the Chinese logo just right and above center in the photo below, with an apparently stickier American flag in the background covering another of the logos. The problem was noticed by a CNN producer, who took a picture and tweeted it.
And so, Obama gave a speech saying he wants to put Americans back to work. Albeit, with Chinese tools.
