Well step up Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, a longtime MP, respected diplomat, who incidentally happens to be an avid runner.

Appearing on ABC TV's Insiders Sunday, the 60-year-old Bishop was asked whether she would be "flattered or offended" if Trump told her she was in "such good physical shape."

Australian Foreign Minister @JulieBishopMP "taken aback" by Trump. #insiders #auspol #trump


Her initial reaction to the question was pretty gold.


Bishop then replied, "I'd be taken aback, I think," before wondering aloud, "I wonder if she could say the same of him."


Everyone immediately spilled their morning coffees.

"wonder if she could say the same thing about him" @JulieBishopMP on Trump's comments about the French President's wife being in good shape

Her response may have even shifted a few votes.

Okay Julie Bishop, that little 🔥 on Trump may have just made me a fan! 🤣 #insiders

It was done in the most low-key, subtle way.

Did Julie Bishop just call Donald Trump fat

The straight-talking is the kind of thing Trump can expect if he ever visits his US allies Down Under.
