Someone Just Tried To Egg Prime Minister Scott Morrison

Someone has just tried to smash an egg on the head of the Australian Prime Minister during an election event in Albury.

Scott Morrison was addressing voters at the Country Women's Association in rural New South Wales. Once he finished his speech, he was seen walking through the crowd and chatting to people, with the cameras pointed right at him.

Footage shows someone coming up from behind him and smacking an egg on his head, however it appears to miss.

A journalist has uploaded a picture of an intact egg, whether that was the one that hit the PM isn't clear - but it'd be weird if there were eggs just lying around a CWA event.

The Daily Mail reports a woman was seen being dragged away from the event after the incident and was pictured earlier holding a pack of six eggs.

Scott Morrison has tweeted about the incident, saying: "My concern about today's incident in Albury was for the older lady who was knocked off her feet. I helped her up and gave her a hug. Our farmers have to put up with these same idiots who are invading their farms and their homes.

"We will stand up to thuggery whether it's these cowardly activists who have no respect for anyone, or militant unionists standing over small businesses and their employees on work sites."

The protestor was led outside, where she was followed by journalists who asked her about her intentions.

"Have you seen his video to Manus Island?" she replied.

When reporters asked why she couldn't have done her protest peacefully, she said: "It was the most harmless thing you can do."

She was also questioned why Mr Morrison deserved to be egged and she added: "Just go on Google, follow his Twitter, whatever."
