There's ways for people to dodge unwanted questions from journalists, then there's this.

The Associated Press are reporting that during a press conference in Bangkok, Thailand's Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha plonked a life-sized cardboard cutout of himself in front of a microphone, telling reporters that the cutout will answer any questions they might have.

 “If you want to ask any questions on politics or conflict, ask this guy," Chan-o-cha told the waiting press.

He then proceeded to walk off the stage, say "bye, bye" to the waiting press pack and throw up the devil horns🤘 - what an exit!

Thailand has been under military control since 2014, with Chan-o-cha taking charge during a temperamental and emotionally charged period for the Thai people, with rival political party supporters marching in the streets and the death of their much loved King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Whether you believe it's good or bad that his military seized control in coup, this is still a baller move from Chan-o-cha.
