SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA— Following the emergence of the worst fire in recorded history, Australian prime minister Scott Morrison has encouraged his constituents to stay optimistic.
“Look, don’t get me wrong, the fires are a huge bummer,” he said in a press release with journalists on Sunday.
“But at least we’re in the news. I like to look at this as a great opportunity to put Australia on the map- most people don’t even know we exist,” he continued.
At press time, the prime minister was seen kicking out small flames on his suit as he walked back to his private jet after the conference.
