I highly doubt that the people who created this recognize the irony that will be associated with this display.

Just love that headline!

But I doubt that he is on air, as can be seen in the right corner.

More on something else!

Squeeze him and he says, "Abenomics, Abenomics, Abenomics."

NO WAY!
