Oh the outrage! John Key told a lame joke about a filthy pedo

The left wing are all enraged because John Key told a joke about the scumbag pedo who has fled the country to Chile and now on to Brazil.

Prime Minister John Key made a joke about fugitive Phillip John Smith, saying he would let Chile’s President know she may not want to “invite [him] round for lunch”.

Smith, who was jailed for life for murder and child abuse in 1996, flew to Chile using a passport obtained in his birth name – Phillip Traynor – while on temporary release from prison.

Chilean authorities have confirmed that Smith then took a flight to Brazil, but Mr Key was unaware of this when he made reference to the killer while at a press conference in Beijing yesterday.

He laughed as he told reporters he would alert Chilean President Michelle Bachelet about Smith when they meet at the Apec summit today.

“I’ll just let her know there’s someone who could be out there from New Zealand that you may not want to invite round for lunch.”

Meh, the joke falls a bit flat, this isn’t Hannibal Lechter…now if I could suggest an improvement.

“I’ll just let her know there’s someone who could be out there from New Zealand that you may not want to invite round to play with your grand kids.”

Now that would be funny.

Predictably Jacinda Ardern is all outraged, and so are the left wing media.

I have another suggestion for john key, he should give the President of Brazil a call and tell him:

“There’s someone who could be out there from New Zealand that might take a fancy to “Boys from Brazil.””

Now if Jacinda and Toby and other lefties were upset because Key’s joke was lame, I’d agree with them. But they are just outraged that he joked about it at all.

I suppose they think leaders should never tell jokes and be po-faced automatons all the time.
