As we all are aware, Donald Trump has become President of the United States. The local nationalists and fascists in Australia are ecstatic. So much so that Pauline Hanson and One Nation were crowing that they had been “gifted” with tickets to Trump’s Inauguration. One Nation’s resident conspiracy theorist and climate change denialist Malcolm Roberts, in particular, had boasted on twitter than he and Hanson had received tickets but Liberal Party leader and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull hadn’t, tweeting: “”Pauline and I received an invitation but not the Prime Minister. OUCH.” It was later revealed that Roberts had repeatedly pestered and begged the Australian Embassy in Washington to get the tickets (see also here)
In the face of Hanson’s bragging and Roberts’ gloating, SBS newscaster, fashionista and pop culture icon Lee Lin Chin couldn’t help but respond with her trade mark wit. Hanson, it seems is yet to learn, that trying to out best Lee Lin Chin’s wit will be about as successful as taking a water pistol to a gun fight.
