Prayuth surprise kicks performer to show off his Muay Thai skill (VIDEO)

Is there anything this man cannot do? He threw a banana peel at a cameraman. He likened Uighurs to breeding animals. And today our junta chief Prayuth Chan-ocha showed off his great sense of humor once again by going off script and attacking an innocent Muay Thai performer.

In what seemed like an attempt to test the athlete’s alertness, Prayuth threw a surprise kick that landed on the side of the man’s body, while the press watched and his sycophants applauded and cheered him on.

The man was one of two performers from Thaiachira, a martial arts gym in Don Muang, who were brought to Prayuth by the Ministry of Culture to talk about performances to promote Thai martial arts.

These two guys definitely deserve respect, but Prayuth probably was just lor len because the junta chief’s a funny man

“I’m actually a funny person. Don’t you see I always joke around? Usually, I just pretend to be furious. I’m never furious at you,” Prayuth told reporters in February, which sparked a hashtag #PrayuthIsAFunnyGuy on Twitter.
