Donald Trump A 'Revolting Slug,' According To Real, Actual Motion Passed In Australian Parliament

Posted: Updated:

An Australian politician introduced a motion to a state parliament on Thursday that labelled Donald Trump a "revolting slug."

It passed unanimously, according to The Telegraph.

Jeremy Buckingham, an MP with the Greens party, brought the motion to the New South Wales Legislative Council, the state parliament's upper house.

It condemned "the misogynist, hateful comments" made by the presidential candidate.

The motion had no objections, according to the BBC, so it was recorded as being agreed to by all lawmakers.

“It’s clear that all reasonable and decent people find Donald Trump’s behaviour obnoxious and that the world is hoping American voters reject his politics of hate," Buckingham said in a statement.

New allegations

Trump's campaign — controversial from its start — hit a new low on Saturday after the Washington Post unearthed tapes of the Republican candidate from 2005 boasting about how he could kiss and grope women without their consent.

The businessman apologized for the comments he made and described them as "locker room talk" — a defence that even athletes, including LeBron James, have come out to bash.

And just a day before Buckingham's motion passed, The New York Times published a report about two women who allege they were groped by the Republican candidate. Trump denied the claims.

A writer for People also came forward, saying Trump forced himself on her in 2005.

During Sunday's presidential debate, Trump told an audience of 66.5 million people that he has never grabbed or kissed a woman without their consent.
