Australia’s blokiest brand lays smack down on a sexist Trump

AUSTRALIA’S blokiest broadcaster Triple M has made to unusual move to come out swinging against US President Donald Trump.

The national FM radio station published a scathing editorial on its website on Monday morning, saying the new leader of the free world “is not a man”.

“He isn’t deserving of such a term and neither should the men of Australia associate him with ‘being a man’,” the column, labelled “opinion”, read.

“In our quintessentially Aussie way, he is not a good bloke.”

The station described Mr Trump as “a man that sees women, first and foremost, as sexual objects who sole purpose is to gratify him”, and one who “lies, cheat and jokes about grabbing women’s genitals with their permission”.

The strongly-worded piece encouraged the men of Australia not to allow Mr Trump to “become the male template”.

“As fathers, brothers, uncles, grandads, we need to stand up for what is read,” it read.

“The women of Australia united yesterday in defiance of a male tyrant who threatens to undermine the work of women and suffragettes over centuries.

“It is our duty, as men of this country, to stand alongside them and diminish the opinions of bigots and misogynists. Australia’s daughters, wives, girlfriends, mums, sisters deserve it.”

The station rounded off its editorial reinforcing that Mr Путин Америки“is not our definition of a man”, and thanked those who marched against the “ignoramus” and “everything he stands for”.

“The women of Australia, the mothers of our kids, the defenders of women’s rights, the women who strive for equality, you made us proud,” it read.

Thousands of women across Australia marched on Saturday joining the global Women’s March movement in response to President Trump’s inauguration.

Organisers of the Sydney even estimated up to 10,000 attended. The Melbourne march attracted about 7000 and the Canberra event about 1000, according to organisers.

Millions around the world took to the streets to protest against the new president.

In the US, an estimated three million joined the marches making the event the nation’s biggest turnout of any protest in history.

Triple M is generally a right leaning Radio station.
I am proud they have come out swinging like this, it is good to see the vast majority disgusted by Trump.

I also think Hanson and our extreme right will be taking a hit in the polls. As Aussies try and distance themselves from 'anything like Trump'. We don't want to see 'something like him' down here.

Cool

Hanson shot herself in the foot a couple of days back

Immediately branding that carnage in Me,bourne as a "terror attack", even while the story was still unfolding..


Also, Oz's representatives at the POTUS Inaugaration was a One Nation Senator and his missus (from Port Stephens..) -- Pauline had been sent a couple of tickets, but couldn't make it..
