The Big Guns defend Scott Morrison from ‘ludicrous’ criticism

The Big Guns Peta Credlin and Graham Richardson have jumped to the defence of the Prime Minister after he was mocked for having a beer at the footy.

Scott Morrison was watching the Kangaroos’ friendly against Fiji when footage captured him downing a few beers.

He was widely criticised on social media and labelled a ‘bogan’, but others came to his defence, insisting people would react differently if it was Bob Hawke.

Political commentator Peta Credlin tells Ben Fordham there’s no reason Mr Morrison can’t have a drink at the footy.

“It’s hot in Fiji. If you’re going to have a drink, have a beer. Good on the Prime Minister.”

Former Labor senator Graham Richardson is on exactly the same page.

“I think it’s ludicrous to be having a go at him for having a beer. There’s nothing more Australian than going and having a beer.”
