Recep Tayyip Erdogan: the Turkish prime minister who isn’t all there

The scandal-dogged politician appeared to supporters at a rally in the form of a hologram

Name: Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Age: 59

Appearance: Fleeting, evanescent.

Is he a ghost? No, he’s alive. In fact, he’s the prime minister of Turkey.

So what is he, in hiding? No, he’s just busy. Erdogan was unable to attend last Sunday’s rally for the ruling Justice and Development party, so he made alternative arrangements.

He sent a trusted emissary? No, he sent a giant hologram of himself.

You’re making that up. Not at all. Erdogan’s projected avatar spoke to cheering supporters, saying: “We are going to elections in the shadow of attacks prepared by treasonous networks.”

Un tonnerre d’applaudissements avait accueilli la surprise : leur idole, Tayyip Erdogan  venait de quitter  l’écran sur lequel il s’exprimait, pour s’élever  au-dessus l’assistance, tel une divine apparition,  en un hologramme géant en 3D
