MP Anne Aly's embarrassing gaffe on live TV.

When Labor MP Anne Aly went on live TV, she probably didn’t think she would find herself in an embarrassing situation. Right after her crossover interview on Sky News ended and cameras shifted back to news anchor Elizabeth Tilley, Dr Aly could be heard saying “what a knob!” This comes just seconds after her fierce debate with Liberal MP Andrew Laming about the Federal Government’s U.S. refugee resettlement deal.

The MP for Cowan in Perth quickly realised her mistake, saying “ohh, sorry!” to all who would listen. Dr Aly was presumably riled up by a comment Brisbane MP Mr Laming made to close the segment, discussing the controversial refugee resettlement deal. He reminded Dr Aly that elections are bruising and brought up former Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s ‘broken promise’ of not bringing in a carbon tax.

Mr Laming later took to social media to tweet about the incident: “That moment when you wait for the intellectual Left to apologise uncondition-Aly. #ApologyNeverNever,” he wrote.

He also said on Twitter, “In one short week, I’m called a f***wit by ChalmersMP, a grub by BurneyMP and knob by AlyMP. #StayClassyIntellectualLeft’, referring to fellow Brisbane MP Jim Chalmers and Sydney MP Linda Burney, both from the Labor Party.

Hours after, Mr Laming returned to Twitter to say that Dr Aly had given him a “gracious apology”.

Just a few days ago, ABC presenter Virginia Trioli was caught unleashing on Donald Trump supporters during election coverage, when she too thought her microphone was off.

Watch the embarrassing moment here.

    What else could you expect from an inexperienced, ‘parachuted-in’ Labor stooge.
    Most of these extreme left wing morons are the same … resorting to hysteria when
    their destructive mantra is challenged.

  2. Guy Flavell  

    PISS OFF YOU IGNORANT TWAT !!! Take your despicable scam to one of the disgusting
    porn or casino sites where they belong. I urge all Starts at 60 readers to totally denounce
    and then ignore your garbage posts.

    Everyone is entitled to there own opinion! No need to be crude about it!

    Linda, please accept my sincere apology for reacting in this manner. I don’t know if you realise it, but these scam adverts have constantly
    been appearing on Starts At 60 over recent weeks.I have pleaded with SA60 to delete them but to no avail. My concern is that many of
    our elderly or perhaps naive readers could be conned into responding to these awful ads and be persuaded to part with their money
