Biden calls Masters champ Hideki Matsuyama ‘Japanese boy’ in odd compliment

President Biden on Friday awkwardly hailed Masters golf champion Hideki Matsuyama as a “Japanese boy” during a press conference in the Rose Garden with Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.

Matsuyama, 29, won the Masters Tournament on Sunday at Georgia’s Augusta National Golf Club.

“Yoshi, I know how proud you are — the people of Japan are — and you’ve got a Japanese boy coming over here and guess what? He won the Masters. He won the Masters. He won the green jacket,” Biden said in the Rose Garden.

“And Matsuyama was the first Japanese player to take home that green jacket at the Masters tournament this week. So let me say congratulations to Japan as well on that feat.”

Biden’s description of the celebrated golfer drew criticism online.

“Hideki Matsuyama is 29. Joe Biden just called him a ‘Japanese boy.’ To the Japan PM’s face,” one viewer wrote on Twitter.

“Did Biden just use the term ‘Japanese boy’ to describe a grown ass man? oof,” wrote another.

Biden and Suga spoke privately about tensions with China and also about a rise in reported anti-Asian prejudice in the United States, they told reporters in the Rose Garden......More

It Was Worse Than We Thought: NO ONE Met Japanese Prime Minister at the White House Door Except Stationary Army Guard

In a highly disrespectful and embarrassing move, Kamala Harris welcomed Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga to the White House on Friday.

Joe Biden was nowhere to be found as Kamala Harris welcomed Yoshihide Suga, the first foreign leader to visit the Biden White House.

But it was way worse than we originally reported.

No one met Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga at the door when he arrived.
The only one standing there was a stationary Army guard.

Japanese Prime Minister Joshihide Suga was the first world leader to visit the White House since Biden’s installation, and the poor form began with no-one greeting the head of the Japanese government upon arrival. When you consider the leftist narrative about stopping Asian hate, there is a rather ironic aspect to this visit and snub.
Once Prime Minister Suga was inside the White House he was shunned for the greeting by his diplomatic peer, Joe Biden. Instead, Kamala Harris was dispatched to deliver introductory remarks. Beyond the inappropriate form, the subtle message of Kamala Harris being the acting head of the executive branch was on display.
Then when Vice President Kamala was sent down to greet the Japanese Prime Minister she spent more than a full minute trashing the US as a violent place as Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga stood next to her waiting to be introduced.

“Good morning! I briefly want to discuss the tragedy that occurred in Indianapolis last night. Yet again we have families in our country that are grieving the loss of their family members because of gun violence,” Kamala Harris said as the Japanese Prime Minister stood next to her.

After ranting for more than a full minute, Kamala Harris finally welcomed Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga to the White House.

What a disgrace!

She looks peeved when the interpreter started translating

A New York City man was arrested and charged on Tuesday with attempted murder in what police have classified as a hate crime against a Chinese immigrant, authorities said.

The victim, identified by police as 61-year-old Yao Pan Ma, was attacked in the East Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan on April 23. The assault is the latest in a spate of attacks targeting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders across the nation.


A recent report by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University at San Bernardino showed that crimes against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) jumped by 145% in 2020, even as hate crimes overall in the United States fell slightly.

In March, a shooting spree at three spas in and around Atlanta left eight people dead, including six Asian women. Police said that they have not ruled out charging the suspect with a hate crime.


Many Americans blame Asians for the coronavirus, which was first identified in Wuhan, China in late 2019. Former U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly referred to COVID-19 as the “China Virus” and “kung flu,” rhetoric seen by some as inflaming anti-Asian sentiment.

In the New York incident, surveillance video released by police last week shows Ma being attacked from behind, knocked down and kicked in the head multiple times by a lone man.

Police charged Jarrod Powell, 49, of New York with two counts of felony assault, one count of attempted murder. Police classified the attack as a hate crime but offered few other details.


It was unclear Tuesday if Powell had an attorney. No information on bond was available, but police said he remained in custody Tuesday evening.

Media outlets, including the Washington Post and People magazine reported that Ma was in critical condition in a medically induced coma at Harlem Hospital. A representative for the hospital told Reuters that he could not release information on the patient.

People magazine reported that Ma was a pastry chef who came to America about two years ago with his wife.
