For reasons we honestly can’t explain, Senator Pauline Hanson has made the mistake of taking on SBS journalist and high priestess of the internet, Lee Lin Chin ahead of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration ceremony.
The feud first began on Monday when Hanson tweeted, “Would you believe it? I have been gifted tickets to the Presidential Inauguration Ceremony of @realDonaldTrump – What an honour!”
The last minute invitation to the One Nation Party leader came after weeks of speculation that Trump's camp has struggled to secure guests and entertainment for the inauguration, something Chin pointed out in her reply to Hanson's tweet.
"Who hasn't got tickets? No actual Americans want to go so they're just inviting everyone. I've got a +8 for my man harem," the presenter replied.
Clearly missing the joke (and the section of Chin's Twitter bio that reads "These tweets are obviously jokes") Hanson took the tweet literally and replied, "I hope @LeeLinChinSBS your harem isn't also rorting the taxpayer by collecting welfare like some other harems do because that is a bad look."
