Pamela Anderson Hits Back At Scott Morrison For Being A Bit Of A Creep

I’m no politics expert, but there are probably not a lot of questions you can ask of a country’s leader where the appropriate answer from them is “My friends are very horny.” But maybe this is why I am not prime minister of Australia, and why Scott Morrison is.

You might recall that last week Pamela Anderson put out a plea to Morrison to help get Julian Assange out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London and back into Australia. When asked on the radio if he would, our dipshit PM decided to answer as thus: “Well no, first of all, but next, I’ve had plenty of mates who’ve asked me if they can be my special envoy to sort the issue out with Pamela Anderson.

It feels like he probably could have stopped just at the ‘no’ and left it at that. But, again, I am not the PM.

In an open letter published yesterday, Anderson said it was unnecessary for Morrison to respond the way he did:

You trivialized and laughed about the suffering of an Australian and his family. You followed it with smutty, unnecessary comments about a woman voicing her political opinion. We all deserve better from our leaders, especially in the current environment. . . . Rather than making lewd suggestions about me, perhaps you should instead think about what you are going to say to millions of Australians when one of their own is marched in an orange jumpsuit to Guantanamo Bay – for publishing the truth. You can prevent this.

Echoing Morrison’s own language, Anderson said that Assange is “not getting a fair go“.

Assange was granted asylum by Ecuador in December of 2012 and has remained in the embassy since then. Recently, an Ecuadorian court ruled that asking Assange to clean up after his cat, do his laundry, and pay for his own food was not a violation of his right to asylum.
