Trump’s “worst call by far” with the Australian Prime Minister, an unfortunate Malcolm Turnbull, leaked out very quickly. Which isn’t surprising. It isn’t often a ‘world leader’ rants at an allied nation’s head of government and then abruptly hangs up.
Australia’s “Special Relationship” with the United States of America has always been a little lop sided, with the “history of the alliance is a history of Australian sentimentalism versus American pragmatism”. It is just that historically the USA tends not to be as childishly petulant about it, leaving Australia to metaphorically speaking, shut up, eat shit and smile.
I also just could not get this image out of my head in relation to this story, so obviously I had to have a go at drawing it.
