It’s nice to see half the damn country call out Scott Morrison after he made a horrendous apology over the Parliament House rape scandal, in which he said he understands why rape is bad because, as his wife Jenny had to remind him, he has two daughters.

In case you missed it, Morrison literally said that “Jenny and I spoke last night, and she said to me, ‘You have to think about this as a father first. What would you want to happen if it were our girls?’ – Jenny has a way of clarifying things, always has.”

If ever we needed more proof that Canberra has a serious problem with women, the fact this line got through all of the PM’s speechwriters and aides is pretty solid evidence.

The man literally claimed he consulted his wife, and then thought about his daughters, before coming to the conclusion that a Liberal staffer’s rape allegations from inside Parliament House are extremely serious.

Very quickly, people started wondering what Scott and Jenny talk about over dinner.

Some people wondered what their conversation even sound like. Did she really have to talk him though why rape is bad, step-by-step, using their daughters as examples?

Then people questioned what Jenny thought about other things. Just imagine if the Prime Minister consulted someone with empathy for all of his policies, such as the ongoing detention of the Tamil refugee family from Biloela.

Amid all this chaos, who could forget a trailblazer of the genre:

Poor Jen. She’s got a lot of work ahead of her.
