Dai is known for posting eclectic photos on social media, including some showing himself and others scrunching up their lips and eyes. Dai posted images of Xi with the same expression while wearing a mustache.
Some online commentators have compared the Xi portrait to Adolf Hitler, although Dai's Instagram image has much broader mustache than the small, square-shaped, "toothbrush mustache" associated with Hitler...
In response, Xi angrily denied any similarity between himself and the late German Führer. (After which, he sentenced the artist to 10 years in a concentration camp.)
Now gifted humans Like Vincent Youmans Might think that their praise is bad:
...[Lee Tsung-chi (李總集), one of President Ma Ying-jeou's consiglieres,] criticized former president Chiang Ching-kuo (蔣經國) for lifting the...restrictions that banned the establishment of new newspapers — which he said led to biased reporting that failed to do Ma justice.
But I've got a notion (Not to second the motion) But here is what I'm going to add:
That President Ma's close aides who endorse censorship by the former KMT military junta speaks volumes about the character of the man who hired them. His authoritarian bent explains both the dictatorial style of governance he's subjected Taiwanese to over the past 6 years, as well as the source of his latest 70% disapproval rating.
