Fuss about 'sexist' interview with Prime Minister

World February 26, 2018 09:18

sydney - In Australia, we are ashamed to respond to an interview that the news program 60 Minutes broadcast on Sunday with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. According to critics, the interview was extremely sexist and blunt, and more about the appearance of the prime minister and her pregnancy than about her policy.

Interviewer Charles Wooley said: 'I have met many prime ministers, but never someone who is so young, few who are so smart, and no one so attractive. '

Ardern and her husband Clarke Gayford were visibly uncomfortable when Wooley said she had one important political question, 'and that's when the baby comes. 'After the answer (' June 17 ') he suggested that many people' recalculate when the conception took place. '' Why would not a child be conceived during an election campaign? ', Wooley referred to Arderns election last year.

Viewers called the interview on social media horrible and paternalistic.
