This is libertarian senator David Leyonhjelm
Since luckily/accidentally coming to office in 2013 he has:
- Maintained the Sandy Hook massacre could have been avoided with armed teachers
- Become the Australian mouthpiece for the US National Rifle Association
- Suggested "all coppers are bastards"
- Called someone a "legitimate f*ckwit"
- Praised childless parents, calling children "bundles of dribble and sputum"
- Retweeted tweets claiming the Paris attacks could have been stopped by armed civilians on the streets.
Well in the midst of the controversy around immigration minister mistakenly texting a female journalist calling her a "mad fucking witch", he's taking on trolls.
And came out and called someone a cunt.
That's an elected senator calling someone a "cunt". SMDH.
