I know, I know, it’s hard to keep up with all the BS that is the LNP right now, particularly our Prime Minister, or should I say #CrimeMinister, Scott Morrison.
With the lying to the UN, forcing people to shake his hand, publicly embarrassing himself in Kangaroo Island, getting chased out of Cobargo by angry locals and going away to Hawaii in the middle of a climate crisis, this guy is a PR disaster.
Never in my 61 yrs would I think Id see such blatant fraud & theft totally accepted as a legitimate political option for re-election.

The latest news is a touch more serious though – Scotty from Marketing is being accused of corruption after he backed Deputy Leader of the National Party Bridget McKenzie, who distributed funds for sports grants to already wealthy, Liberal-linked sporting clubs to “further the Coalition’s political interest.”
An absolutely savage report came out by the independent Audit Office, blasting McKenzie for not distributing needs-based funds to those who actually needed it, but instead to marginal seats or seats that the Coalition wanted to win.

This SMH article sums up exactly why this #SportsGate scandal is so outrageous and dangerous, and how it links up to corruption.
And on behalf of the club, I’d like to thank the Prime Minister for the $500,000 sporting grant to refurbish our day spa, jacuzzi and a la carte restaurant…#ScottyfromMarketing pic.twitter.com/Lol0Qwl89s

Twitter is not having a bar of ScoMo these days, and considering #CrimeMinister and #ScottyFromMarketing are the top two trends right now, it’s looking like people are pretty done with his shit.
I’m actually genuinely surprised it took us this long as a country to come up with #CrimeMinister.
But also, fuck Scott Morrison.

Is locking up/torturing asylum seekers/refugees incl kids a crime? Yes it is.
Is refusing to act on a climate science a crime? Yes it is.
Is corruption within our federal parliament a crime? Yes it is.
Is #robodebt a crime? Yes it is.

The position of the entire government has become untenable.
Self-combusting horse manure.

It’s even funnier when you remember that Scott Morrison rejected the nickname Scotty From Marketing, and the fact that he gave himself the nickname ScoMo.
#auspol I fully support the new nickname for @ScottMorrisonMP (you don’t get to pick it Scottie, only a wanker picks their own nickname). The #CrimeMinister of Australia, protector of blatant corruption.

Paired with Scummo, SmoKo and every other wonderfully snarky nickname given to Scott Morrison, I have to say we’re atleast lucky to have a PM that’s so easy to meme.
every morning theres a new scummo tag trending on twitter and every time they just get better and better, #CrimeMinister sounds about right
