The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

AND in other Mardi Gras news, Mal­colm Turn­bull kicked an own goal last week­end when he posed for a selfie with the pa­rade’s celebrity guest Cher, pil­ing in­sult upon in­sult for his party’s al­ready tetchy con­ser­va­tive base. But just like wear­ing two pur­ple rib­bons on Fri­day for In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day didn’t have the de­sired ef­fect, nei­ther did suck­ing up to Sonny’s other half.

In re­sponse to a claim by an ob­scure Twit­ter leftie — if that isn’t an oxy­moron — that Turn­bull was a Trumpian fas­cist, tor­turer of refugees and con­cen­tra­tion camp pro­pri­etor, Cher dropped the Prime Min­is­ter like a hot po­tato. That’s what hap­pens when you hitch your star to vac­u­ous celebri­ties to try to bur­nish your woke cre­den­tials.

You end up with no friends at all.
