  1. I bet that the guard didn’t lose it but was acting within protocol based on the battery perpetrated by the tourist, nothing happened until the tourist laid a hand on them.

  2. Yeah, the Chinese tourists are really obnoxious. They have money but no social graces or education. Reminds me of the Americans in the 50’s and 60’s.

  3. Hire one of those Brits, to show Jennicet Gutiérrez the door at the White House. Obama shouldn’t be wasting his precious time going off on this person.

  4. @gene, @blacksheep: How do you know he’s Chinese? And from China? Just because he looks Asian? That’s your bigoted anti-Chinese prejudice talking, which makes YOU two obnoxious idiots!
    And if it was one of your own people doing it, you would be the last to criticize your people. No, in that case it’s the person who’s to blame, not his nationality. That makes you two hypocritical cowards.
