I saw an interview with a local politician these days.

The interviewer then asked “…if your project get’s rejected, what do you think was the cause? Who did you fail at?” the politician looked around like some kid making up an obvious lie story and then started babbling “Well…hm…I guess….well, I’d be very sidappointed if blablabla” and I would’Ve snapped as the interviewer at the point of “I’d be very disappointed” and jumped at my counterpart a finger in their face screaming “THAT WAS NOT THE QUESTION! WHO DI YOU FAIL AT? ANSWER!” then the policitican would start again with her disappointment, at which point it slap her with my papers “ANSWER THE GOD DAMN QUESTION!” at this point molten steel red in the face “FRAK YOUR FEELINGS, WHO. DID. YOU. FAIL. AT?”

Probably my producers and people behind the camera would drag me off screen and you’d see “Technical difficulties” sign shown, afterwards a deeply terryfied politician and a new interviewer would sit there and she could ramble on about her disappointment somewhere in the off you’d hear me screaming and yelling “THAT WASN’T THE QUESTION!”

All in all, no matter if they are left wing (like the woman I saw in the interview) or right wing (like the true master of avoiding straight answers in interviews here) – ALL politicians lie. They all don’t want to give straight answers.
If you confront them with hard facts, or things they haven’t got a written response for – they budge. None of them can react to stuff in an honest way, they stick to their agenda and even if you can see them crack internally, they continue their lies. Policitcs ever being truthful and honest would destroy the entire system. If you expect change in opinion when they meet in an assembly, or some interview, or a meeting with SPECIALISTS – you’re gonna have a bad time. (Insert Southpark Meme here :Þ)

Again, I’d be a horror as interviewer. Yelling, screaming and insulting these morons and their evasive behavior and their lies. Perhaps I’d be great. But I think I’d suck…
