Australian Prime Minister Turnbull Mocks President Trump In Leaked Recordings

New York Times: Malcolm Turnbull, Australian Leader, Pokes Fun at Trump in Leaked Recording

SYDNEY, Australia — Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s first phone call with President Trump was famously unpleasant. His next one might be even more so.

On Thursday, an Australian news network released a brief recording of Mr. Turnbull poking fun at the president, at a dinner full of journalists that was supposed to be off the record.

“The Donald and I, we are winning and winning in the polls,” said Mr. Turnbull (whose actual poll numbers, like Mr. Trump’s, are nothing to boast about). “We are winning so much. We are winning like we have never won before.”

Trump is busy at work.

Dems are ginning up anger trying to get people shot.

Who isn't mocking Adolph Twitler?

A small number of self identified Republicans.

Everybody else in the world is laughing at American's and Little Big Boy.

- Foxconn could be building plant in Wisconsin. We are talking about 7 billion dollars of investment.

- The economy is picking up. Public economic sentiment went up after Trump was elected. This it seems has resulted in a better business climate.

Obasma could have done all of the above but he chose not to.

That is a lot of jobs for Wisconsin.

It is also a lot of national security.

Trump may have saved my spouse's job.
