WATCH: Josh Thomas Blasts Bob Katter & It Could Not Be More Awkward
Federal politician Bob Katter was left looking very sheepish after he was blasted by comedian Josh Thomas over his view on homosexuals on the ABC's Q&A.
On last night’s mental health-themed episode Katter, who once claimed there were no homosexuals in his northern Queensland electorate, was asked if it was appropriate for him to talk about mental health without acknowledging gay people.
Frustrated with the politician's repeated attempts at dodging the question, Josh finally gave him a piece of his mind. The comedian spoke very passionately about the issue and got quite animated, leaving Katter lost for words and looking around very awkwardly.
"All you need to do…She asked the question you say, 'You know what, I've said some stuff in the past, it was a mistake, I understand now; it's hurting people’s mental health; it's part of the problem, not part of the solution. I'm sorry. Hooray for gay people. Here's some glitter'," Josh said.
