Scott Morrison: Australia PM puts hands up over 'not OK' lyrics

Scott Morrison Is Heaps Sorry For That Incredibly Weird Fatman Scoop Tweet

Scott Morrison has his hand up.

The song's lyrics made some sense in context.

Despite the video being deleted from all of Mr Morrison's accounts, social media users retained the clip and it's still easily accessible on Twitter.

If you got a $100 bill put your hand up.

The Prime Minister has been forced to remove a video, tweeted from his personal profile, dubbing some of his antics to a song by US R & B star Fatman Scoop, after criticism the lyrics were inappropriate. / You got a fifty dollar bill, get your hands up!

The video, posted on the Prime Minister's Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts showed him in Parliament during Question Time. When I found out, I asked the team to take it down.

Trump ‘wants US$200 billion in China tariffs despite talks’
If both sets of tariffs go ahead it would mean virtually all of China's United States exports would be subject to new tariffs. Trump said last week that he also had tariffs on an additional $267 billion worth of goods ready "on short notice if I want".

Some of the song's lyrics - but not those in the clip - contain sexual references.

Mr Morrison's choice for the Wentworth candidate was roundly rejected and instead the party chose David Sharma, who was supported by Mr Turnbull and former prime minister John Howard.

"It's quite clear that that's not a song that's on my play list", Mr Morrison said, suggesting he might choose a Tina Arena track next time.

"Look, we're just trying to connect honestly with people". And some of the narcs will get a bit worked up about this sort of thing.

What people are seriously vibing to that song in 2018 remains to be answered, but the fact Morrison has openly admitted he wants to sell his personality to the Australian public is genuinely interesting.

MPs also started to weighed in as the original post went viral, with several Labor members using it as an opportunity to stick the knife in as the Libs deal with ongoing disasters following the leadership spill.
