Heard in the Labor Party caucus

“What’s the real reason for Trump firing the head of the FBI?”

“He wants to replace him with Tony Abbott”

Heard in the Coalition caucus

“Why do you think Bill Shorten’s so confused over the funding of the NDIS”

“He’s got a disability with numbers”

Heard in a Sydney pub

“The new French President’s wife is twenty-five years older than him”

“Sounds like a millennial married to a centennial”

Heard in Congress

“So what’s the real reason Trump fired Comey?”

“He didn’t want to play Russian Roulette with him”

Heard in a Toorak restaurant

“Bill Shorten’s starting another class war”

“We must immediately counter attack by establishing the Royal Commission into the Unions as a permanent body”

Heard on the 8am to Central

“What’s your reaction to Malcolm bashing all that money out of the banks?”

“It’s money that’s been gouged out of us so we should get it rather than the government”

Heard in the Oval office

“Now Mr President why exactly did you fire Comey?”

“For the sheer enjoyment of it”
