As his ‘fauxgan’ act wears thin, desperation is driving Scott Morrison deeper into the dress-up box | Van Badham | The Guardian

Scott Morrison wears a hard hat and face mask during a visit to a mine

Should we be surprised? His church has been rumoured to have  called an emergency meeting because  it’s about to implode due to yet another outrageously immmoral scandal? Not the one about his mentor, it’s head Brian, stepping down, or his besties being QAnon. Morrison himself has almost more nondisclosure agreements trailing him than Donald Trump. What will Scotty from Marketing do for a job after this one? He’ll need a better disguise when sending in his next application?

Why does the Australian prime minister affect more costume changes than a Ru Paul’s Drag Race cabaret act in an exploding dress factory? Because, uh, he wants you to know he’s not pretending to be anyone else. He actually said this – aloud! In front of a camera! – on an episode of Paul Murray Live. He was criticising the Labor leader, Anthony Albanese, his rival in the upcoming election, for having the raw, transformative temerity to lose a bit of weight, get new glasses and buy some new suits.
