Prez Memes Are Flattering

China’s Internet crackdown on memes comparing President Xi Jinping to Winnie the Pooh is a major overreaction not worthy of even a bother … according to the guy who gives Pooh a voice.

Jim Cummings — the voice of Pooh since the ’80s — told us China and Prez Xi are taking the comparison all wrong, because it’s actually a good thing. 

The memes started with a side-by-side image of Pooh and Tigger with a 2013 pic of Xi and President Obama — and took off from there. Well, up until the government started blocking the images on all public sites and forums.

Jim, who also voices Tigger, advises a smackerel of Pooh’s favorite food to calm the sitch — but with nearly 1.5 billion people … might take more than that.
