Mr Key made the comments on RadioLive todya and Ms Harre told the same radio station she found them deeply offensive.
Asked later if he stood by them, Mr Key said he did.
“I think it’s totally accurate,” he told reporters. “He funds her.”
Mr Key denied the comments were offensive or sexist and said he would say the same thing about Mana leader Hone Harawira.
“I think she is literally being funded by Kim Dotcom … if he wasn’t putting up the money, she wouldn’t be there,” Mr Key said.
Laila has openly said she abandoned the Greens for Dotcom, because of the resources he offered. The Greens were not paying her $150,000 a year, as Dotcom is.
But I love their thought patterns. It is outrageous for the PM to call Dotcom a Sugar Daddy, but it is fine for Dotcom to lead a crowd in chanting “Fuck John Key” and then be so proud of that, to stick it on You Tube as an official party ad.
If you want offensive, than the above qualifies I would say. Probably inspired by the person who leads the crowd chanting “Fuck John Key” and alleges he is a stooge for Hollywood.Tags: John Key, Kim Dotcom, Laila Harre
