December 8th – Australian Prime Minister Morrison slandered former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd for entering and leaving the country freely during the COVID-19 period without confirmation on the 7th. After being hit in the face by the person concerned, Morrison apologized.
Morrison was reportedly questioned by Labour MPs in Parliament on the 7th: Why can former Prime Minister Abbott and former Foreign Minister Alexander Downer have been granted immigration exemptions many times this year, while thousands of Australians stranded abroad cannot go home? Morrison replied that he did not understand why the Labor Party mentioned this. After all, Kevin Rudd did the same thing.
Morrison’s remarks immediately caused controversy. Rudd said on social media later that day Morrison’s words were a complete lie. I have not left Queensland since March. Morrison misled the parliament and should apologize.
After being hit in the face by the person concerned, Morrison wrote to Parliament on the evening of the 7th to request that the minutes of the meeting be corrected and apologized to Kevin Rudd for his wrong statement.
