It is monstrous that anyone should satirise President Erdogan. There is nothing at all risible about him. This is not a case of over sensitivity. He is a most respected figure and I exalt him above all others. It is very reassuring that he wishes to take severe action against any whipper snapper who shows him disdain. Intolerance for criticism is a very healthy trait. Some ghastly people have expressed contempt for the president. They are nauseating and deserve condign punishment. Freedom of expression is a core value of the Turkish Republic. Everyone is fully free to laud their president and concur with him on all issues.
