Communist China has already achieved a historic milestone in its quest to overtake the United States as the world’s preeminent power. According to a Washington Free Beacon analysis, Chinese president Xi Jinping is now the fattest head of state in the industrialized world.
It’s not something Xi is likely to celebrate publicly. Like his country’s ethnic cleansing of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang, the rotundity of his waistline is a forbidden topic in China, and most American media organizations, technology companies, and other cultural institutions are more than happy to play along.
Like most communists, Xi rarely practices what he preaches. During a hospital visit last month, for example, the Chinese leader said health was the most important indicator of people’s happiness. If the Chinese people had a choice, which they don’t, they might prefer to get their health advice from a man of less formidable girth, such as former American president Donald J. Trump.
Photo analysis suggests Xi is not only fat but also skilled in the art of disguising his fatness. Much like how his country covered up the true origin of the COVID-19 pandemic, Xi routinely engages in tactics designed to shield the true extent of his girth.
The Free Beacon consulted a number of experts, including a hefty fashion enthusiast familiar with fat-masking photogenic maneuvers, who agreed to be interviewed on the condition of anonymity given the sensitive nature of the subject.
The hefty fashion watcher told us that Xi uses a number of tactics to disguise his fatness. For example, he always wears tailored clothing that is often bulky and dark-colored to confuse the eye. He is typically mindful of where the camera is positioned, which allows him to contort his body into a flattering position. The so-called “M formation,” established by crossing the arms in front of one’s considerable gut, is a favorite of the Chinese president, as seen here.
It was also “possible,” the expert said, that Xi could be wearing Spanx or some other kind of compression girdle to distort the truth about his engorged body. The truth is out
