After inviting the Liberal Democrats senator onto Studio Ten to discuss his “sexist” slur to the Greens’ Sarah Hanson-Young, Bishop asked the NSW man directly why he referred to her as a “bigoted b*tch” on Twitter on Friday.
“Why did you call me a b*tch?”
His delightful response was: “Because you were being one.”
Senator Leyonhjelm had first made the remark about the journalist after watching her discuss his widely-condemned suggestion to Hanson-Young that she should “stop shagging men” on Studio Ten last week.

Since then the senator has continued to defend his right to
insult people without consequence “free speech”.
