Politics: “So You Actually Talk to the New Zealanders” – Obama to Turnbull

During a quiet moment at the Apec summit in Manila, microphones picked up Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull and US President Barack Obama chatting like any pair of old geezers might, about bilaterals and what have you, and Obama has the gall to say “You actually talk to the New Zealanders?”

He’s kidding, relax, he’s kidding. Pretty sure he’s kidding.

They exchange pleasantries about their mutual pal, good friend, role model, wonderful guy and golf buddy John Key.

Or John Keys, as our Australian friends at ABC News like to put it.
