Scott Morrison tackled a small child on a Tassie football pitch

The 30th Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, became the first Prime Minister to tackle a small child during a football match. Someone call the mother of this child, as soon as possible.

As he campaigned in Tasmania’s must-see seats on Wednesday, the nation’s leader sought to assert his dominance on the football pitch. I guess it’s better to wash people’s hair and weld while burning your face…

Unfortunately for other players, nobody taught Scott Morrison that #vision is one of the most important skills when playing the global game.

As he attempted to run into space to receive a pass, the Prime Minister absolutely knocked down an unassuming small forward. He will need a bandage on this tackle. OUCH!

Luckily, the kid picked himself up and continued the game like an absolute champion. Unlike the guy who crossed paths with him, the kid probably has the toughness to succeed in politics.

The timing couldn’t be worse for Scott Morrison who spent the whole week telling Aussies he had changed and was no longer a ‘bulldozer’. Well well well, I guess the proof is in the soccer ball pudding.

With the federal election set to take place on Saturday, May 21, Scott “Bulldozer” Morrison hopes voters don’t think attacking a small child on the football field is a disqualifying act on the road to re-election.

At the very least, he deserved a red card.
