Chinese Leader Xi Jinping just had his predecessor Hu Jintao, the former CCP Chairman, hauled out of the CCP summit on live TV in full view of everyone.
You can see the two exchange words as Hu Jintao is escorted from the room.
The rest of the party leaders sit and do nothing.

China announced Saturday its new central committee would include many known allies of Chinese President Xi Jinping, while several officials with more market-leaning tendencies were not on the list.
That central committee then goes on to determine the core leadership — the Politburo and its standing committee. Names for those core positions are due out midday Sunday Beijing time, according to state media.
Four of the current seven members of the Politburo standing committee were not on the list. The only three who remained were Xi, Wang Huning — known for his work on ideology — and Zhao Leji — current head of party discipline.
Li Qiang, Shanghai’s party secretary, and his Beijing counterpart Cai Qi remained on the central committee list.
Asia Society Policy Institute’s Center for China Analysis called Li Qiang Xi’s protege. Other Xi loyalists the Asia Society had identified were included in the list of new central committee members.
