Tapper Tries Using Aussie PM To Shame Americans- Watch This Idiot

Tell me you’re out of touch, without telling me you’re out of touch. CNN’s Jake Tapper Used Australia’s Prime Minister to try and shame Americans on topics like gun control and climate change. I say it was an out-of-touch move because I don’t know a single American worried about what the Australian government thinks. The Australians I know hate their government and after this little number, it’s easy to see why.

Tapper went on to introduce the Prime Minister, “in Australia, the new prime minister has pledged to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, but is the rest of the world on board? Joining me now, the prime minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese. Thank you so much for joining me. The climate crisis is here, and I guess the question I have: By the time world leaders — including India and China and the United States — all get-together and agree to do something significant, won’t it be too late?”

It didn’t take the CNN lackey long to drool over Australia’s strict anti-gun laws. Tapper quickly asked the PM to talk about gun violence in the US. The Prime Minster fell right into and spoke highly about the country’s gun grab:

“Well, every one of those tragedies is heartbreaking, and every one of those tragedies keeps reinforcing, as an outsider, the fortune of the position Australia is in of having the strong gun controls and the tragedy to the families affected by these crimes. in Australia, we had a bipartisan response to the Port Arthur massacre, and we haven’t had one since.

And I just say that people should look at our experience. It’s up to the United States as a sovereign nation what direction it takes, of course, but the truth is that Australia’s experience shows that less guns — particularly less automatic weapons — the less crime occurs and the less tragedy occurs.”

JAKE TAPPER: The death toll in Kentucky’s flooding rising again this morning. The number now is 26 dead. As the effects of the climate crisis continue to wreak havoc around the world, in Australia the new prime minister has pledged to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, but is the rest of the world on board? Joining me now, the prime minister of Australia, Anthony Albanese. Thank you so much for joining me.

In 1996, after 35 Australians were killed in a mass shooting, your country’s government took immediate action. You implemented a gun buyback, you banned semi-automatic rifles, you passed strict gun regulations. What has it been like to watch the United States struggle to address our all-too-frequent mass shootings and gun deaths from an outsider’s perspective? Especially given your country’s experience.

ANTHONY ALBANESE, PRIME MINISTER OF AUSTRALIA: Well, every one of those tragedies is heartbreaking, and every one of those tragedies keeps reinforcing, as an outsider, the fortune of the position Australia is in of having the strong gun controls and the tragedy to the families affected by these crimes. in Australia we had a bipartisan response to the Port Arthur massacre, and we haven’t had one since.

And I just say that people should look at our experience. It’s up to the United States as a sovereign nation what direction it takes, of course, but the truth is that Australia’s experience shows that less guns — particularly less automatic weapons — the less crime occurs and the less tragedy occurs.
