Barnaby Joyce accidentally becomes the star of a clumsy flowerpot comedy: A video of Australia's former deputy prime minister falling into the night is causing laughter and criticism online.
The 56-year-old politician fell from a huge flowerpot. He sat there during a lively phone conversation with his wife, Vicki Campion.
He allegedly muttered obscenities over the phone. He is said to have asked, “Damn Kanni.” Critics are now urging him to step down from Parliament.
Joyce himself says: “If I knew someone was with a camera, I would get up quickly.”
According to the Daily Mail, his wife criticizes the witnesses who did not help him. He is said to be in excellent condition. Joyce describes the incident as “very embarrassing”. He says he simply fell over the flowerpot and talked to himself.
This incident is another curious moment in Joyce's story. He was previously noted for using slurred speech and made-up words.
