Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has now made international headlines. News of him and a younger ex-staffer expecting a baby together has been picked up over in the USA with John Oliver discussing the situation in a segment on his show Last Week Tonight. 

Discussing the topic, Oliver says, “Joyce is a social conservative who opposed same-sex marriage in their referendum last year because he believes in traditional family values, and you can probably see where this is going,” before playing a clip from a story on Sunrise 

He then followed up with, “In reality, Joyce has such incredible family values, that he can’t restrict them to one family.”
