Watch Out Michelle Obama, Meet China’s First Lady, Peng Liyuan | NTD China Uncensored | NTDonChina

bjbj,(,( China s First Lady: Upbeat, Presentable,Great Closing Act for Student Massacre Hello, soon-to-be news-knowers; this is China Uncensored,I m your host Chris Chappell.

Well, the United States has them, France and Britain occasionallyproduce them, and they re the envy of less fortunate states around the world though NorthKorea has recently astonished everyone by obtaining its own.

No, not nuclear weaponsglamorous first ladies.

Now China has recently joined the elite of countries whose firstspouse makes her own headlines.

New Communist Party head Xi Jinping recently went abroadwith his wife, Peng Liyuan, and she was the one turning heads.

No, not Xi; she.

Uh, thatis, she (pointing exasperatedly at picture) Ms.

Peng! Mr.

Xi may have too many years ofdumplings and mind-numbing bureaucracy under his belt to look dashing and it s probablybeen years since he dashed anywhere.

But Peng Liyuan has for years been one of China s biggestcelebrity singers, and a general in the People s Liberation Army, to boot.

And her predecessorsas first lady were, uh, well.

She adds something to the role.

s also famous enough that, whenXi Jinping was chosen as China s new Communist Party leader, many people just referred tohim as Peng Liyuan s husband.

You see, she s more famous than Xi, and she and Xi combinetheir fame to that Xi s even more famous and uh, moving on Anyway, it was all going accordingto plan a bright, upbeat first lady was finally making China look a little more friendly anddynamic on the world stage, and instead of searching online for censored things likeTiananmen massacre, tons of impressionable Chinese youth were looking for things likePeng Liyuan s blouse.

Then that got censored too.

No joke.

Anyway, the bright and shiny,Kennedy-esque image that Xi and Peng project has now been overshadowed for some people,by a recently-revealed photo of Peng in full army gear, singing to armed troops, in TiananmenSquare.

Oh yeah, it s also in 1989.

Shortly after that massacre that never happened.

Apparently,Peng was dispatched by the PLA to sing reassuring, patriotic songs to the young soldiers whohad recently been forced to gun down thousands of protesting students.

Needless to say, shedoesn t put this one on her resume.

It s worth noting that she might herself have been targetedif she d turned down the assignment even the official Communist Party leader of the timewas thrown out for supporting the students too much.

But anyway, while her husband talksabout achieving the Chinese Dream and Peng smiles and promotes vegetable eating, likeall good first ladies, it might be worth remembering that China is still a bit different from othercountries in some important regards.

On the outside, it may start looking like Kennedys Camelot inside, it s still more like Stalin s Kremlin.
