Scott Morrison ‘Hangs Up’ During Radio Interview After Tough Questioning

Scott Morrison ‘Hangs Up’ During Radio Interview After Tough Questioning

Scott Morrison has been accused of hanging up in the middle of a radio interview after some tough questions.

The Australian Prime Minister called into 4BC's breakfast show yesterday (August 31) to have a chat about anything and everything.

One of the big items on the agenda is Afghanistan and how the PM feels about the situation that has unfolded.

Radio host Neil Breen wanted to know whether Mr Morrison has spoken to his US counterpart to see how he feels about the pull-out operation.

"It's been 15 days since Kabul fell to the Taliban, obviously, we're great partners with the United States. Have you spoken to US President Joe Biden yet?" Mr Breen asked.

When the Prime Minister revealed he hadn't spoken to Joe Biden, Mr Breen asked whether we're still upholding out longstanding connection with the US.

"Well, we are. And that's not affected by it," Mr Morrison replied.

"I mean, we've been in constant contact with those who have been running these operations and the Foreign Secretary and all, everyone who's been involved in these operations through the military. And we've had a seamless relationship."

Mr Morrison supported Joe Biden's decision to pull America's presence out of Afghanistan, which is something commentators have slammed the President for given what's happened in recent weeks.

The Taliban retook control of the country and their arrival caused thousands of people to rush to the airport to beg for a new life somewhere.

While Scott Morrison might not have chatted to Joe Biden, Neil Breen pointed out that the US President has spoken with the leaders of Spain, Italy and France since Afghanistan fell to the Taliban.

The radio host hammered the point home by also mentioning how America hasn't been very forthcoming with coronavirus vaccines recently.

Mr Morrison rejected that 'we're on the nose' with the US at the moment and he appeared to not be taking the questions to heart.

However, when Neil Breen was wrapping up the interview and thanked the Prime Minister for his time, he was greeted with the unmistakable tone of someone who had hung up.

"There he is - ooh I don't think he liked the Joe Biden question," Mr Breen said.
