Well, we now know Malcolm Turnbull likes to 'Netflix and chill'…

Malcolm Turnbull

Malcolm Turnbull may be our Prime Minister, but he is also a husband, a father and a grandfather. Just like a regular person, who happens to be leading Australia.

Think about the other fathers and grandfathers in your life — no, not the ~cool~ ones. If you talked to them about things that pop up in our daily conversations, like ghosting, breadcrumbing, Netflix and chill… most likely they’d have NFI what you’re on about.

Which is why we’re gonna cut our PM some slack when he was asked about Netflix and chill earlier this week, or more specifically, whether he and his wife, Lucy, are into that.

A Brisbane radio station asked Turnbull, “Do you ever Netflix and chill with Lucy?”

“Yes, we do,” the PM replied.

Firstly, it’s kind of an awkward question to ask any person over 60, let alone the Prime Minister. Just don’t ask questions you don’t want the answers to.

Secondly, the host followed up it with, “Good to know,” and then, “What do you watch? House of Cards?”

“We have watched House of Cards,” Turnbull said. “Actually, we haven’t watched much on Netflix lately, but we do watch things on Netflix. We’ve watched a bit on iTunes.”

And then he kept going: “It’s interesting isn’t it the way that so much of the entertainment that you see on television nowaways is over the top — you know, I mean over the top as in over the internet…”


Even Netflix tried to clarify, but as they said: “You know what, never mind.”
