Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had been put through the wringer before she even stepped into the studio to face questioning this morning.
Ahead of appearing on TVNZ1’s Breakfast today, a morning mishap by weatherman Matty McLean meant he took out the Prime Minister with a door.
“Sorry I’m a little bit flustered,” McLean opened with as he presented this morning’s weather.
He explained he had forgotten to reset a weather wall and ran out of the studio to do so, knocking Ms Ardern with a large door.
“I pushed open our very heavy door into the studio and the Prime Minister was standing right behind the door,” he said with a nervous laugh. “I think she’s okay.”
Thankfully, Ms Ardern laughed off the mistake.
“It’s quite a big heavy door, that one,” she said. “I got it in the back.”
She also reassured a flustered McLean that it wasn’t his fault.
“I’m pretty sure I’m going to be okay. A knock to the back is better than a stab in the back.”
