It’s no secret that China has been bent out of shape since the U.S. stopped letting them take advantage of their consumers. President Trump’s tariffs on China have the entire nation in an uproar. This apparently extends to their news outlets.
An official China newspaper lashed out at Newyork city firefights for doing their job. The newspaper mocked firefighters in a tweet for responding to a car accident. Apparently, they feel that firefighters are a waste of taxpayer’s money.
The tweet links a faceb0ook post which reads:
“On May 30th, the author witnessed the handling process of an ordinary traffic accident in New York City, and deeply felt that the public administration of the US government was in a chaotic manner with shocking extravagance.
At about 2:30 pm, a car got slightly rear-ended by a truck at the intersection of 11th Avenue and 42nd Street in Manhattan. No one was hurt. The author saw a lady on the car’s passenger seat got out and left by s taxi. Both drivers remained on the scene. Two traffic police officers were there to direct the traffic.
Not long after, three large fire trucks roared and arrived from different directions. The fire trucks completely blocked the intersection with dozens of fully armed firefighters appeared at the accident scene.
A senior firefighter took a quick look at the two cars, then instructed the car driver to back off, moving away from the truck.
It took 3 big fire trucks and dozens of firefighters to deal with such a mundane accident in the busy New York City street, holding back traffic and disturbing passengers. One of the passenger on the scene berated that the whole thing was an extreme waste of tax payers’ money.
What do you think?”

I don’t know how responders work in communist China, but in America, they respond to nearly any and every emergency situation. This includes car wrecks and they are there to tend to potential wounds, transport patients, and in some cases, keep the peace until police arrive.
Maybe China is just tariff-crazed?
