BANGKOK - It’s tough answering questions, especially from journalists.
So, one politician found a unique way around them.
Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha avoided a barrage of questions.
He rolled out a life-sized, cardboard, cutout of himself, shortly after delivering his Children's Day address, telling journalists to address their questions to it.
The media were left understandably confused when Chan-o-cha then walked off.
He loves himself so much, he has eight versions himself.
Thailand's prime minister Prayut Chan-o-cha left a cardboard cutout to stand in for him during a news conference. Before leaving he said "“If you want to ask any questions on politics or conflict…ask this guy". pic.twitter.com/ZtF1RTvhS4— Ryan Leverton (@legendarylevy) January 10, 2018
