Ari Fleischer isn’t exactly known for his friendly stance toward China, having recently called it a “ terrible place” and a “ huge problem.” On Sunday, he found yet another reason to slam the country: A knockoff PlayStation 4 controller.
Fleischer, who served as the chief White House spokesman under President George W. Bush, wrote in a now-deleted tweet, “Another reason to distrust China: we bought my kids a PS4 and then got a 2nd controller from Amazon. The controller was made in China of course - and it doesn’t work. It never worked. It’s junk.” An Amazon listing for the same third-party controller currently has a rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars, with the top customer review titled “Terrible controller Do NOT buy this.”
