New Zealand-born actor Russell Crowe thinks Jacinda Ardern is so “awesome” that she should be made Prime Minister of a joint Australia and New Zealand.

“Look… just accept it… she’s awesome,” the 54-year-old actor said in reference to Prime Minster Ardern. “Is it time to make Australia and New Zealand into one country with Jacinda Ardern as PM?”

“Not trying to be controversial… just practical,” he said.

Crowe’s suggestion comes after left-wing media praised the leftist Prime Minister for her recent left-wing message at the United Nations.
