The Obama-Mao T-shirt that Chinese officials didn't want Michelle Obama to see

•, By Charlie Spiering
 McClatchy reporter Stuart Leavenworth noted in the White House pool report that several merchants denied having the shirt, but that one merchant quietly showed a reporter an entire box of them.

"Several merchants denied carrying such items, but one merchant quietly took this correspondent to the back of her tent and showed off a whole box of the popular, normally seen t-shirts," he reported. "As we were negotiating prices — she wanted 360 yuan, or roughly $60, an outrageous starting price — other merchants came by, and in Chinese, told her to be careful. The merchant became visibly rattled and put the t-shirts away."
