Australia’s Prime Minister on Friday, he is the embodiment of President Trump was denied during an off-the-record speech he gave to Parliament about his performance as a “carefree and loving channeling.”
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is trying to limit a diplomatic fallout from the speech he gave on Wednesday evening at an annual charity ball, hosted by the Federal Parliamentary Press Gallery, according to an Australian TV network on Thursday broadcast excerpts taken with a cell phone.
Turnbull made fun of both Trump and the Australian government’s gloomy opinion polls in an animated performance.
“Donald and I, we win and win in the polls. We win so much. We win, as we never won before,” Turnbull said in a speech that now has international attention.
“We are winning in the polls. We are, we are the fake polls, not the fake polls are not — they are the ones that we are not going to win. We win in the real polls, you know, the online surveys. They are so easy to win,” he added.
“Did you know that? I know that, you know? I kind of know that. I know that. They are so easy to win. I have this Russian guy, believe me, it is true, it is true,” he said.
To show a policy-editor at 9 News, allegedly, the Band decided to take, after on Wednesday the Parliament, the annual Mid-Winter Ball.
Turnbull told the Seven network television on Friday that he will fun of his own poor polling performance since his conservative coalition barely scraped back into government in the elections last July.
“I don’t really do imitations; that was not an impersonation. I spoke in my own name, but maybe a little carefree and loving Channelings” Turnbull said.
“I will send my own singular performance in the opinion polls, and I was on the butt of my own jokes,” he added.
The U.S. Embassy said in a statement: “We understand that the last night event is equivalent to our White House Correspondents’ Dinner. We take this with the humor that was intended.”
Turnbull’s relationship with Trump has been a subject of speculation. Turnbull first phone conversation with Trump in January a refugee resettlement deal was, in Trump’s words, “a temper.” But the two leaders made a public show of solidarity and friendship, when they met for the first time in New York in may.
Turnbull is rarely a critical trump card in the public and says, you share a bond, as wealthy business people in politics only late in life.
Unnamed government legislator, told The Australian newspaper that Turnbull’s speech could damage the bilateral relations and demonstrated the Prime Minister’s lack of judgment.
Turnbull said on Friday, the speech had to be seen in its Australian cultural context.
“We are all larrikins,” Turnbull said, using an Australian term for an unconventional and lovable troublemaker. “We don’t have to take us seriously.”
Turnbull said that his speech is a mix of votes received. “I don’t think it shows that I told me for ‘Saturday Night Live’ yet,” Turnbull.
