Tips and rumours

Turnbull trusts Pence ... who will be new Defence sec? ... ambassador's naked truth ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

One to bookmark. Something tells us this statement from the Prime Minister last night is going to age about as well as an old Donald Trump tweet or Arthur Sinodinos' endorsement of One Nation as "more sophisticated". "I trust the judgement, the wisdom of the American government, the President, the Vice President," Malcolm Turnbull told Leigh Sales last night on 7.30, on the eve of the visit by Trump's VP, God-fearing misogynist Mike Pence. Indeed, given that this week Turnbull was using the equality of women as an example of the kind of "Australian value" he expects immigrants to sign up to, we're surprised that Pence, who has a passionate loathing for working women and basic reproductive rights, was allowed into the country at all. Still, in being able to discern "wisdom" in the debacle of the Trump presidency so far, Turnbull can evidently see things the rest of us can't.

    BOOKMARK?!? It should be branded on his forehead so that nobody ever forgets – there is no way that he believes that ludicrous statement but it is more despicable that he nonetheless mouthed it .
