Kevin Rudd doesn’t like being upstaged, hurts kid to prove point [VIDEO]

Kevin Rudd was upstaged by a little Korean kid the other day, and now video footage has emerged of him squeezing the same kids hand so much it hurt him.


Joseph Kim upstages Kevin Rudd

A cheeky five-year-old boy upstaged the Prime Minister when he visited a Korean language class in the marginal Liberal electorate of Bennelong yesterday.

Joseph Kim pulled faces and cavorted behind Kevin Rudd during a photo opportunity at the the Ryde Uniting Church, and captivated the assembled media with his antics.

But then a strange thing happened, as you can see in this video, which ran on Sky’s Paul Murray Live program. 

The PM turned to give little Joseph a high five, and then gripped the boy’s fingers and held on.

When the boy extracted his hand, he grimaced and said “Ouch”.

It takes talent to outshine the selfie king of Australia.
