Shorten Confronts Bernardi: "At Least I'm Not A Homophobe, Mate"


    At Bill Shorten's press conference today conservative senator Cory Bernardi stopped-by to personally sledge him over the Safe Schools Coalition. And Bill didn't miss a beat...

    "At least I'm honest Bill," said Bernardi, the leader of the far right wing MPs who successfully lobbied for an investigation into the school curriculum, which teaches respect for LGBT kids.

    Bill returned: "Nah mate, at least I'm not a homophobe either, mate."

    And Bernardi skulked off after that savage 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥!
