Strange that communists would care about offending Obama.

Though Michelle Obama is admired for her fashion sense and love of shopping, Chinese authorities made sure one item was out of reach — T-shirts showing husband Barack Obama in a Mao hat.
According to a pool report in The Weekly Standard covering the First Lady’s trip to China, ‘authorities made sure, for a day, that Mutianyu [a section of the Great Wall] was visibly free of Obama-Mao t-shirts.’
Reporters following the First Lady’s trip investigated the claim that sales were temporarily suspended — and several merchants denied selling the shirts when asked.
One female merchant, however, offered to sell shirts showing the US President wearing a Mao hat for approximately $60 to one correspondent that she took to the back of her tent.
Other merchants reportedly came by and warned the vender to be careful before she eventually put the shirts away.
