Progressive Kiwi PM confuses Japan with China during state visit

19 Sep

Remember, this is that same single mom prime minister who went around wearing a hijab for like a month after the mosque massacre:

The Prime Minister’s first official visit  to Japan got off to a bumpy start as she referred to the wrong country during an interview with media.

Jacinda Ardern began her opening remarks saying “this is an incredibly exciting time for New Zealand and its relationship with China” – before a quick correction instead to Japan.

When asked about the misstep she simply put it down to jetlag having moments earlier touched down from New Zealand.

“You’ll understand I’ve been on continuous travel and just this moment stopped here,” she joked.

But the timing couldn’t have been worse.

A report released the same day by the Asia New Zealand Foundation is questioning whether New Zealand has allowed its relationship with Japan to “drift” with the focus more on China.

“Perhaps we have taken the relationship with Japan a little bit for granted,” Asia New Zealand Foundation executive director Simon Draper says.

    Tards gonna tard.

    To make a sweeping general statement, a country gets the “leadership,” and thus the face shown to the rest of the world, that it deserves.
