Eating the truffle of failure

Left truffle: PAO Right truffle: Municipality
Thanathorn: The old one is not finished yet… [meaning he has yet to eat the truffle of failure from the PAO elections yet]

[Refers to the defeat of Thanathorn’s party in local elections. After failing in the provincial administrative organizations (PAO) elections, his party only received a few seats at the municipality elections. In Thai, the word “truffle” is also a symbol meaning “failure” or “disappointment.”
Despite the extensive press coverage of the student protests locally and internationally and his movement’s large footprint on social media, these election disappointments seem to indicate little depth to his political influence.]
