Always this same comment when anyone points the finger at China.

The comment is just pointing out to the OP that any moral bankruptcy of the US can most certainly not be blamed on China.

The comment I was replying to implicitly suggested the US had a "soul" prior to engaging in business with China, I wasn't the one who brought up the US. If I had brought up the US out of the blue I'd agree that it was an irrelevant whataboutism, but in this context I feel it was entirely appropriate and on topic.
