President Erdogan using public transportation.. he even didn't find a seat.
Foto for the public/reporters i believe!
No turkish men would stand while his wife is sitting and playing with camera ;-)
They close all the roads while he is passing with his conway ( total of 20 mercedes's maybe) and make people wait . Dont believe what you see
Good noticing.. how come I didn't think about this.. how did get to the train station?
C'mon, @Beja . Do you really think, Erdogan rides a train? For sure all the people in the train are selected (relatives or family members of his staff).
By the way: Are you from Turkey?
hahah you are right. IT is a setup.
I am from Turkey.
It is very similar to what they recently set up in Italy about the newly elected President of the Republic, Mr. Mattarella.
A lot of press attention on his "be a common person" who uses public transport and living low-profile...
In the meanwhile Prime Minister Matteo Renzi went to ski aboard of a military flight used to collect even his family. Oh, he said it was due to "security reasons" mandated by some law (that evidently doesn't count for the PdR, who btw is commander in chief of the military chain!).
Nothing new. It's the old story of being versus standing out.
If you are, you don't need to stand out. If you are not, then you need to stand out somewhat.
Sadly, our leaders are not leaders at all; they simply play a role and do what others command them in exchange of a luxury life they couldn't have reached by themselves.
A real leader doesn't need to show himself as a leader; he is simply recognized as such by the people.
Today's world peoples and their political leaders are well resembled by titans led by dwarfs.
