I don’t often agree with Chinese officials but in this case, they are right. Any boycott that does not involve the athletes is meaningless posturing, devoid of impact and, let’s face it, a farce.

The Biden administration said Monday that US diplomats are going to Beijing to support athletes at the Winter Olympics, but not to attend the Games, after a top Chinese government propagandist claimed that the move shows President Biden’s diplomatic boycott is a “farce.” The Chinese foreign ministry said Monday it had received at least 18 US applications for diplomatic visas. The South China Morning Post reported that another 40 may come in ahead of the Feb. 4 opening ceremonies. The State Department and White House National Security Council said late Monday there had been no change to Biden’s “diplomatic boycott.”
