A pointed political joke

A British teacher of English in Liuzhou, China has written a blog titled Liuzhou Laowai (which translates roughly as alien in Liuzhou) since 2004. He says the blog "attempts to chronicle the more interesting, amusing, ridiculous or astonishing trivia of everyday life here… as seen from an irreverent expatriate’s point of view."

A recent post is, I think, a great joke.

Your task, if you choose to accept it, is to understand the political humor.

The caption: "China’s President Xi Jingping meets a communist for the first time in his life."
