Australian Former Foreign Minister Throws Melania Under The Bus By Sharing Embarrassing Anecdote
Australia’s former Foreign Minister Julie Bishop over the weekend shared an anecdote about meeting First Lady Melania Trump, who mistook her for a politician’s wife, according to New York Magazine.
“Melania, standing by, assumed David was the foreign minister and she said to me: ‘Julie, will you be coming to my ladies’ lunch tomorrow?’ And I said ‘No, David’s going to the partners’ lunch’. She thought about that for a while, thinking: ‘Why would Australia’s foreign minister come to the partners’ lunch?’ So this went on for a while until the president explained that I was the foreign minister.”
Bishop shared the story at the Adelaide Festival on Saturday. The former Foreign Minister served from 2013 to 2018.
