    Re: That is nothing but show.

    A: He is such a respected politician. I saw on the news he donated a lot of money to the poor.

    B: I don’t buy it. Ninety nine percent of all politicians never act from the bottom of the heart. He is just putting on a show.

    B: What for?

    A: To get more votes. OR For votes!

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    A: Stop crying, stop putting on a show! I know it's doesn't hurt that bad. ["Badly" in literary English; or you can say "that much".]

    B: I'm not acting, it really hurts.
