Action star Jackie Chan has once again sparked controversy by branding America the world’s “most corrupt” country in a TV interview.
His comments were slammed by The Washington Post’s foreign affairs blogger Max Fisher as “anti-American” and a reflection of China’s insecurity about itself.
Chan told Phoenix TV that China has been bullied by international powers for a long time and only began making progress in recent years.
Chan added that while China has a corruption problem, so do other nations, including America.
“If you talk about corruption, the entire world - America - has no corruption?” said the actor.
He went on to say America is “the most corrupt [country] in the world” - not China.
Does Jackie have a point? Yes he sure does. We have seen our politicians ignore its citizens to push their own agenda down our throats. The federal government is working to remove rights that belong to the states and everyone is now subjected to federal mandates.
