It's no surprise that politics is on everyone's minds lately. But it's easy to forget that there's more to the political world than what's going on in the White House—take, for instance, the insanity occurring in Australia right now. 

On Wednesday, Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull took the floor to call out politician Bill Shorten, the leader of the opposition, repeatedly calling him a sycophant. He even said that "there was never a union leader in Melbourne that tucked his knees under more billionaires' tables than the Leader of the Opposition."

The disses kept coming, so naturally Desus and Mero watched the clip, and were stunned by the PM's savage attack. Yes, there's a lot more to Australia than Vegemite and kangaroos. There are also, apparently, politicians willing to brutally roast each other.
