Sunrise host David Koch launched a shock attack on celebrity Labor supporters who had taken to Twitter following the disappointing election results on Saturday.
Speaking live on-air this morning, Kochie said that those complaining should ‘move to New Zealand and stop whining.
“One thing I am hating on social media is all the people bagging the Australian voters for making the decision,” he said.
“Get a grip. People wanting to move to New Zealand, well go to New Zealand.
“The Australian public is pretty smart, they’ve made their decision, you’ll live with it.”
Author and comedian Meshel Laurie called Australians “dumb, mean-spirited and greedy” in the wake of the result, which saw Opposition Leader Bill Shorten concede defeat on Saturday night and step down as leader of the Labor Party.
