Chinese media outlets have mocked U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan with a series of unflattering cartoons.
Pelosi’s visit to the self-ruled island last week sparked a furor from China, with Beijing announcing on Monday that it was extending its military exercises in the Taiwan Strait. China has also cut off defense and climate talks with the U.S. and imposed sanctions on Pelosi in retaliation for the visit.
China’s state controlled media used cartoons as part of its opposition
to U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.
… Another cartoon, from T-House, portrayed Pelosi as a witch allowing Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen to drink from a bubbling cauldron with “Taiwan Independence” on it while pouring out the liquid from her own glass.
The Global Times, a state-owned newspaper, published a cartoon of Pelosi carrying sticks of dynamite as Tsai rolls out a red carpet along a cliff. “This way, your excellency!” Tsai says in the cartoon.
Newsweek carries the story and the cartoons. As does Nokia News.
