Kem Sokha and The Thick Wooden Throne, Nov. 2016
To make Cambodia understandable for Americans (in terms of temperament, intelligence, communication skills): Hun Sen is Trump; Kem Sokha, Sarah Palin; Sam Rainsy, Barack Obama.
Of all the thrones in this series "Kem Sokha and The Thick Wooden Throne", I find this the most disturbing as I imagine the different scenarios that led to this meal seating. As it's inside, the plastic chairs had to be intentionally sought out and brought in from the outside or back corner somewhere for the plebeians to use rather than just pulling the similar chairs within reach already there; King Sokha made a huge effort to distinguish his chair from those of the visiting plebes coming to pay their respects (and tributes?). A reflection of the smallness of a man who came to power in an internal coup aided by Hun Sen, that I find extremely unsettling, to put it mildly.
