Penny Wong's Shade Game Is Actually Next Level

The Penny just dropped.

Posted on

Senior Labor senator Penny Wong gave one of the coldest shoulders in Australian political history to treasurer Joe Hockey last week, because👏she👏was👏not👏in👏the👏mood👏

The ABC News Vine went viral and racked up more than 700,000 loops in the last few days.

Well, Wong is not done. Not by a long shot.

Joe Hockey stood in Question Time on Wednesday, taking a dig at her opposition to the China Free Trade Agreement and links to unions.

Wong, who wasn't even in the same room, dropped the hammer.

The world’s most invisible Treasurer has gone on a rant in the House. Is it because I didn’t give you a hug last week @JoeHockey?

Penny Wong... she's nothing to f*ck with.
