Hi, I wanted to verify what people thought about the translation of this phrase in to English: de rhétorique politique de circonstance ... I have : for political opportunist(ic) rhetoric

?? Thanks

    Le discours qu’elle inspire est tellement entaché de considérations électorales, de rhétorique politique de circonstance qu’on ne sait plus en réalité de quoi on parle.

    The context is about migration and this part is discussing political discourse regarding migration,
    Hope that helps?

    Yes, thanks.

    entaché de rhétorique politique : riddled with political rhetoric
    de circonstance : done just to fit the fashion/needs of the day (so, which doesn't reflect one's real/deep opinion)

    ... riddled with [...] diplomatic/situational/opportunistic political rhetoric... ?
