The Project's Lisa Wilkinson has unleashed a blistering attack on PM Scott Morrison, calling on the Prime Minister to apologise to Pamela Anderson "for the sake of your two daughters."
Wilkinson used a dedicated segment on Monday night’s episode of the Channel 10 news program to slam Mr Morrison’s “smutty” comments about his mates wanting to be “special envoys” to the Baywatch star.
Wilkinson raged, "The problem is we don’t think you get it Prime Minister, because when you dismiss a woman’s ideas while stirring in some sexual innuendo it’s not just your words we’re hearing, it’s every time a boys club has got in the way of our hopes and dreams."
“It’s every disgusting comment we’ve heard muttered as we innocently walk down the street and just chalk up to being female," she continued.
“It’s every time we’ve been belittled simply for being a woman. And if you think this is just fake outrage from some of the bleeding heart left think again.”
Wilkinson argued Morrison should start thinking of his family.
“I wonder if this is how you would like men in the future to be talking about your girls?” Wilkinson said.
“I think it’s time for you to apologise to Pamela Anderson, if not for us than at least for the sake of your two daughters and for all the little boys out there too.”
Appearing on Gold Coast radio station Hot Tomato FM, Mr Morrison had to laugh off Anderson's pleas made during a 60 Minutes interview earlier this month asking him to intervene and bring Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to Australia.
“I’ve had plenty of mates who have asked me if they can be my special envoy to sort the issue out with Pamela Anderson,” he said.
In response, Anderson labelled the Prime Minister’s comments “smutty” and “lewd” in an open letter published by The Daily Beast.
“You trivialised and laughed about the suffering of an Australian and his family. You followed it with smutty, unnecessary comments about a woman voicing her political opinion,” she wrote.
“We all deserve better from our leaders, especially in the current environment.”
