Pauline Hanson Attempted A Ridiculous Burqa Stunt & The Internet Was Not Kind
One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson wore a Burqa in parliament today before demanding that Australia subsequently ban the religious garment.

The attempt was of course COOKED, and here are the best ways the Internet responded:
I have to admit this is the most attractive photo of Pauline Hanson I've ever seen. pic.twitter.com/oWk12ABNd7

Wish we had more bipartisanship in Australian politics but if agreeing that Pauline Hanson is a flaming dickhead is what it takes, so be it.

If Pauline Hanson wants to cover her face in Parliament, might a white hood and gown be more appropriate?

Pauline Hanson's stunt today was a hurtful, offensive & dangerous display for her own ignorance. The Senate stood up to her as we should.

Would rather Pauline Hanson wore a burka on the street than in the House - she might learn something about vilification then

Also, shout out to George Brandis for putting Pauline in her place:
