SEX APPEAL: The Prime Minister is spending his Friday night in damage control.
After a failed attempt to appeal to women by washing a stranger’s hair at a Melbourne salon today, Scott Morrison is tonight holed up in his lounge room watching a Hollywood classic.
“My empathy coach highly recommended the Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt movie ‘What Women Want,” he says. “But to be honest, it sounds like a load of bullshit to me.”
However the PM has been left with little choice.
Scott Morrison stands accused of not caring about what women want, after a steady stream of rape and sexual harassment allegations involving liberal party members.
“I’ve tried to talk about the importance of my wife and daughters, and now I’ve even tried washing a woman’s hair, but I’m getting nowhere,” he says.
“Why can’t we go back to simpler times when my biggest worry was a global pandemic? A couple of deaths a week was so much more straightforward than this minefield.”
At time of publication, the PM was seen watching Sky News on his mobile while the movie was on.
More to come.
