Is Scott Morrison the most tin-eared Prime Minister we’ve had since…. well… Tony Abbott?
That press conference he gave the other day where he tried to express sympathy for women then ended up attacking a News Corp journalist and threatening every other journalist there about stories he’d held was classic Scott Morrison. But he seems to get away with it.
So far we have:
An allegation of a female staffer raped at parliament house and covered up.
An allegation that the attorney general raped a woman who later committed suicide and the government now pretending that no investigation is possible.
A staff filming himself masturbating over a female MPs desk and circulating the footage.
Eric Abetz allegedy sending nasty tests about Brittany Higgins and slut-shaming her.
Andrew Laming allegedly stalking female constituents online and turning up to a park to photograph one, plus multiple witnesses stating that he upskirted a woman at her place of employment.
Part of me thinks they can’t survive all this. They have to lose office at the next election but…. maybe they won’t? Maybe it will all be forgotten by them and everything will carry on as normal. Depressing times.
