BEIJING: The Chinese Communist party’s official newswire is facing a deluge of online scorn and ridicule after claiming Taiwan’s first female president is “extreme” because she is single. Tsai Ingwen, who has studied at LSE and Cornell University, was sworn in as the self-ruled island’s new president last Friday. A piece published by a Xinhua-run newspaper suggested she was likely to be obsessed with detail and hold radical views that could encourage her to seek formal independence from China because she was unmarried and had no children.
