Thailand’s prime minister reportedly left reporters shocked and amused at a press conference by directing their questions to a cardboard cutout of himself—and then leaving.
Prayut Chan-o-cha told reporters that his cutout would take their questions, after which he “turned on his heel” and left the press conference.
“If you want to ask any questions on politics or conflict, ask this guy,” Chan-o-cha said before walking away.
Social media users were quick to respond. One user said, “Honestly though, who couldn’t imagine Trump doing this?” Another user said, “Honestly I’d probably do this when I can’t stand talking to people lol great idea.”
