Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha decided to embrace the late 90’s trend of life-size cardboard cutouts, and ordered a selection to be done in his likeness.
Then at the Government House in Bangkok, before bouncing from his press conference, he trotted one out and said, “If you want to ask any questions on politics or conflict, ask this guy.”
Is a cardboard dictator still a dictator?
After his Tom Green-level stunt, Prayuth Chan-ocha came back and dismissed reporters, deciding to take questions from those children in the audience whom had been pre-screened, claiming it was his duty to, “Engage young people with potential to get in line with 21st-century democracy.”
Yup, nothing like the concepts of the need to get in line, and democracy in the 21st-century.
