Australia will investigate attack on journalists by police in Washington

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called for an investigation after two of the country's journalists were attacked by police in Washington, DC, on Monday.

During a live morning newscast on the program "Sunrise" on Tuesday in Australia, police were seen using their shields to clear Channel 7 News US correspondent Amelia Brace and photojournalist Tim Myers from the scene.

The Australian outlet is a CNN affiliate.

The video shows police hitting Myers and punching his camera. Another officer then directs the pair, who were trapped against a wall, to move on, before appearing to smack Brace in the back with a baton.

2. It's these right-wing thugs that give Americans a bad name abroad

Most people from other countries understand this nuance. They also understand that Cheeto is trying to impose brutality as a way of governance.

The way he - and the other 'ugly' Americans - always wanted to.

5. They're probably thinking: His Orangeness will cover for us

They way he's been shielding that CIA agent, Anne Sacoolas, after she ran over UK teen Harry Dunn while driving down the wrong way la Clark Griswold.

She was, you may have heard, recently promoted.
