Get ready, ladies and gentlemen, because Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull may have just caused the latest Donald Trump tweet storm.
During in event in Australia where media was present, Turnbull began savagely mocking the United States President by using the same language and embellishments that Trump often uses when he’s trying to excite his base.
There is generally an unspoken rule that nothing from the event will be reported on, but audio of Turnbull’s speech was leaked.
Turnbull mocks Trump’s love for the polls, fake news and even gets in a little dig at Russia.

Well played, Mr. Prime Minister.
The things Donald Trump often says are so ridiculous that the only way to deal with them is to laugh it off or simply mock his own words. That’s why political satire has become so important and well-received during the Trump presidency.
Hopefully The Donald can take a joke and just laugh this one off, but knowing him and his thin skin, there’s going to be some type of response. Get your popcorn ready.
