PM’S MARDI GRAS NOT A CHER THING
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.
