NSW Parliament officially agrees that Donald Trump is a ‘revolting slug unfit for public office’

The New South Wales Parliament’s Upper House just passed this motion unanimously today (13.10.16):

1027. Mr Buckingham to move—

 That this House:

(a) condemns the misogynistic, hateful comments made by the Republican candidate for President

of the United States of America, Mr Donald Trump, about women and minorities, including the

remarks revealed over the weekend that clearly describe sexual assault,

(b) reflects on the divisive, destructive impact that hate speech from political candidates and

members of elected office has on our community, and

(c) agrees with those who have described Mr Trump as ‘a revolting slug’ unfit for public office.

Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham said: “It’s a great that all sides of Australian politics, from conservatives to liberals to greens, agree that Donald Trump is a ‘revolting slug’ and completely unfit for public office.”

“It’s clear that all reasonable and decent people find Donald Trump’s behaviour obnoxious and that the world is hoping American voters reject his politics of hate”.
