Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has denied that he lied to France’s President Emmanuel Macron, saying that he doesn’t even speak French.
”I think my good mate Emmanuel might have got a bit of confused on our phone call,” said the Prime Minister. ”I don’t speak French, never have, never will, so when I was talking to him I was sure to talk slowly, loudly and repeat myself a lot.”
”Hindsight, maybe I should’ve used an interpreter.”
When it was pointed out to Prime Minister Morrison that Emmanuel Macron also speaks English, the PM said: ”I reject the premise of your question.”
”Why would the French President speak English, he’s French.”
”I mean I know in the past England and France have had their differences with a war here and there, but that’s all in the past.”
”Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to seek out Emmanuel and see if it’s true that in France that they call a Quarter Pounder a Royale With Cheese.”
