Here’s an old video from President Hu Jintao’s trip to Japan last year that we missed earlier and is making the rounds again on Sina Weibo.
A Japanese elementary school student asks Hu, most innocently: “Grandpa Hu, why did you want to become Chairman?”
The President’s priceless response: “Let me tell you. I have never wanted to become Chairman. All the people of China chose me to be the Chairman, so I could not afford to let them down.”
Uh… okay, if you say so, Chairman Hu.
Watch after the jump…
