Turnbull Thinks Obama Should Read The NT News And He's Right TBH

The NT News; the true heart of the nation.

Posted on

Fresh off the first slightly awkward meeting between the two, Malcolm Turnbull has suggested Barack Obama read the NT News if he wanted to be kept in the loop on Aussie foreign policy developments.

According to the Australian Financial Review, Obama told Turnbull he first heard about the port lease by reading it in the New York Times and said, "let us know next time."

"It was not a secret and I think it's important to support metropolitan newspapers right around Australia and especially in Darwin," said Turnbull.

"I suspect (the NT News will) give him a free one I've mentioned it now. He remembered with great affection his appearance on the front of the NT News with crocodile insurance."

And Australia's best newspaper is now ready for Obama's call.
