Malcolm Turnbull is choking!
Choking up, that is!
What's next? Election 2016: Malcolm Turnbull declares himself a feminist and chokes up over his family history https://t.co/HF5MN6TxjW— phil viva republique (@pwwingman) June 6, 2016
Over his sad, sad family history and touching Disney-movie-like relationship with his poverty-stricken "battler" father.
As you might expect, social media immediately swung behind this tragic and noble figure.
Of course, some vicious, sour trolls did not appear to fully and immediately accept Malcolm's story at total face value.

Some hardened cynics even suggested it was just a campaign trick — and maybe not even an all that original one!
But on it went regardless...
