The TikToker/comedian/mathematics genius (?) who has been accurately predicting NSW’s COVID numbers for the last three days has responded to allegations that he’s getting info from a mole at NSW Health. OOFT.
At a press conference this morning, a reporter asked NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian if she was concerned that someone at NSW Health was leaking information to a viral TikToker called Jon-Bernard Kairouz.
Like any politician, she of course dodged the question. But Kairouz has now responded to the press conference question.
“Sorry Glady, people lie. Numbers don’t,” he said.
God, that sounds like something my sociopathic maths teacher would’ve told the class in Year 8.
The video cuts off before you can hear Gladys’ response, but as I said before, she brushes off the thing entirely.
“All we can do is focus on the job at hand and I know at the moment a lot of people have or alleged to have various bits of unmet information and advice,” Berejiklian said.
“What is important for us as a team, team New South Wales, is to focus on what is necessary and that is to lead our state during the most challenging of times.”
Kairouz is obviously being leaked the numbers, which are totalled at 8pm the night before and aren’t released until the day of the presser. Yesterday (13 hours before today’s press conference) he predicted that the NSW case numbers would be 97 and guess what? He was right. He also predicted yesterday’s (65) and the day before’s (97).
In an interview with Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa, he also avoided the question about where he’s getting his information from (like Gladys).
“To be honest I work at a college as a janitor and sometimes I’ll see an equation on a whiteboard and I can just finish it. I feel like I’m smarter than most of the kids there!” he told the duo.
Just FYI: that’s the plot to the film Good Will Hunting.
This guy really is the ultimate troll.
