A bit rich of Julie Bishop to betray the Trumps' confidence after this lecture!

This is Julie Bishop in 2014, lecturing former Labor Foreign Minister Bob Carr about the importance of keeping confidences.

So how does that sit with this performance Julie?

Yesterday we brought you the story of Julie Bishop taking the mickey out of Melania Trump, but there's more to that story!  President Trump copped it too, here's the ABC's report:

"All the kings and queens and monarchs and heads of state and prime ministers and foreign ministers are in New York for that one week (UN Leaders Week)," Ms Bishop said.

"President Trump made his speech at the General Assembly and it was highly controversial.

"I was introduced to him afterwards and it was all 'what did you think of my speech, what do you think of me,' you know, 'how am I going' and later that night, David and I attended a cocktail function hosted by the President and the first lady.

"So he said 'David! What did you think of me? What did you think of my speech?' and so on.

"So David responded and called him Donald, which I thought was fabulous because I was obsequiously calling him Mr President.

"Melania, standing by, assumed David was the foreign minister and she said to me: 'Julie, will you be coming to my ladies' lunch tomorrow?'

"And I said 'No, David's going to the partners' lunch'. She thought about that for a while, thinking: 'Why would Australia's foreign minister come to the partners' lunch?'

"So this went on for a while until the President explained that I was the foreign minister."

And thanks to the incomparable Jill Jacks for filing and retrieving the Julie Bishop video!
