HA! Who knew Malcolm Turnbull had it in him?
The phone calls between Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and President Donald Trump are probably not going to get any better.
During a speech in Australia’s capital city of Canberra on Wednesday evening, Turnbull reportedly imitated the American president and alluded to the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Nine News in Australia published audio and footage of the event, which typically is kept off the record. Referring to online polls, Turnbull joked, imitating Trump: “They are so easy to win. I have this Russian guy. Believe me, it’s true.”
“The Donald and I, we are winning and winning in the polls. We are winning so much. We are winning like we have never won before. We are winning in the polls.
We are! We are! Not the fake polls. Not the fake polls! They’re the ones we’re not winning in. We’re winning in the real polls. You know, the online polls. They are so easy to win. I have this Russian guy. ”
After the speech, Turnbull called his imitation “affectionately light-hearted,” the BBC reports.
Listen and have a little chuckle.
