Sky News and the Murdoch newspapers are today reporting that Scott Morrison was forced to abandon a meet-and-greet in a bushfire-ravaged NSW town after being overcome by extremely excited and thankful residents.
The prime minister on Thursday visited the Bega Valley township of Cobargo, which was engulfed by flames on Tuesday morning. Three people died and many others lost homes, businesses, livestock and pasture when the out of control fires hit the community.
However, according to the Herald Sun and Daily Telegraph, the tragedies faced by this community appeared to be a thing of the past as residents excitedly flocked to the Prime Minister’s luxury BMW four-wheeler as it arrived in town.
The Prime Minister was reportedly given a guard of honour as he arrived into Cobargo, and then of course a standing ovation as stepped out of the car.
“How are you?” Morrison asked, as he approaches one woman who had her hands by her side. He then reaches out and takes her hand and starts shaking it.
The seemingly starstruck woman was lost for words after being approached by her selfless but very humble Prime Minister, again, this is according to the New York-based multibillionaire media dynasty that owns 70% of all Australian media publications, with a concentration in swinging rural seats.
The same thing happened to a lucky firie who got to meet our heroic and perfectly competent leader. He was so excited that he had to leave the room!

The townsfolk appeared to cheer as the Prime Minister left their town, after being overwhelmed by all of the love he was being shown by the residents who will remember this moment for the rest of their lives.
According to the Murdoch newspapers, it is not known when these perfectly normal and totally expected bushfires that were not caused by climate change will end – but to blame anything other than arsonists and greenies is just making things political and not helping at all.
