It is obvious that the "pig" is Helen Clarke, who has come
back from failing to take over the United Nations to take over the New
Zealand Labour Party again! Jacinda Ardern has the reputation of being
a flake, so Helen Clarke is presumably her minder and will be running
the country again if Jacinda Ardern becomes Prime Minister.
Of course, some people thought that Gareth Morgan was calling Jacinda
Ardern a pig, but that was clearly not the case.
Jacinda Ardern herself claims
to be relentlessly positive, but I heard her tell Duncan Garner
on his TV3 AM Show that he couldn't weasel
some details out of her -- and he promptly told her not to call him
a weasel! So, although Ardern would presumably argue that she wasn't
calling him a weasel, Garner was quite sure that she was.
also criticised Mike Hosking for asking about her clothing, but
the point is that women (including Ardern) typically wear much more
varied clothing than men do and spend much more time worrying about
clothing. This gives female politicians the advantage of looking different
every time they appear on the media, whereas men's suits do not vary
so much and look relatively drab. Female politicians should be forced
to wear drab clothing as male politicians tend to do.
Of course, Feminists
typically complain that people pay more attention to female politicians'
appearance than to male politicians' appearance, but that is not necessarily
the case. For example, Newshub says that "Mr
Dunne is well known for his signature bowtie and his floppy mop of silvery
hair" and I have often heard journalists going on about his
hairstyles. This is part of the general Feminist complaint that men
treat women as sex objects. But
women treat men as sex objects too!!
