Australian Senator David Leyonhjelm, on Donald Trump’s comments on women:
"He is a man of his times, perhaps. So perhaps you could cut him a little bit of slack."Elizabeth Donelan, elderly female reader, in a letter to Senator Leyonhjelm:
“I have NEVER heard men commenting upon women in such a despicable way as Trump has in the recently released quotes. You appear to me to be a similar age to Trump and should NEVER condone this attitude or these words."
"Go away and stop proving you are a bimbo. You are not fit to use a computer."Email from Senator Leyonhjelm’s electoral office when confirmation was sought by a reporter that he had responded as above:
"You can quote a spokesperson from Senator Leyonhjelm's office as follows: 'We are greatly concerned by this email. Usually he just tells constituents who make things up to fuck off. We are worried he may be mellowing'."http://www.smh.com.au/comment/australias-nastiest-most-sexist-politician-david-leyonhjelm-is-a-disgrace-to-his-office-20161021-gs7th8.html
