Thanks, brother.

In case you missed it, Australia got a new prime minister on Monday night when Malcolm Turnbull defeated Tony Abbott for the leadership of the Liberal party.


It was a night of highs and lows, and plenty of drama, capped off when some cheeky devil sent this tweet to Hulk Hogan.

@HulkHogan can you RT for my uncle @TonyAbbottMHR he just lost his job and is in the dumps

And the Hulkster, who has faced his own adversities lately, was there with a shoulder to lean on.

@RealFreeBrowny yo Tony keep ur head up,lean into the wind my brother ,I know the deal. HH

It was the perfect end to a really, really weird day in Australian politics, brother.
