Abbie Chatfield shuts down fan who defends NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet’s political views

Abbie Chatfield has taken exception to a political DM from one of her followers.

The influencer, 25, slammed the fan for claiming that new NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet’s ‘views shouldn’t be anyone’s business’ in a fiery Instagram Stories rant.

‘He’s not the new franchisee of a local car dealership, he’s the f**king Premier!’ shot back the Bachelor star on Tuesday.

‘The thing that matters is his political views,’ continued Abbie, who has previously voiced her concerns about Perrottet’s strong Catholic beliefs and his conservative stance on abortion.

‘That is literally the only thing that matters. What do you mean?’ she added.

The fan’s message began with the claim that Perrottet shouldn’t be dismissed as a leader simply because he celebrated Donald Trump’s 2016 Presidential election victory.

‘Has it ever [occurred] that some people actually like trump.. just because you don’t agree doesn’t mean he’s going to be a bad premier’.

However Abbie shot back that ‘no one normal wanted Trump to win’.

It’s not the first time Chatfield has voiced her concerns about the latest leader of New South Wales. 

On Monday, before Perrottet was officially sworn in as the new Premier, Abbie shared a number of Instagram Stories pointing out policies she was unhappy with.

‘Our new premier? F**king pass. I’m so mad. Please vote the liberal party out next election. This man is f**ked,’ she wrote.

In particular, Abbie pointed out Perrottet’s stance against abortion and his strong Catholic beliefs.  

She also noted that he’d praised Donald Trump’s election, questioned climate change and voted against same sex marriage. 

The reality star likewise underlined sections in which Perrottet is calling for stronger borders.

Mr Perrottet looks set to be NSW Premier after a key ally switched sides when an endorsement by ex-PM John Howard gave the Treasurer an unbeatable edge.

The party’s centre-right have also swung behind the 39-year-old dad-of-six after Mr Howard’s kingmaker seal of approval.

The endorsement came just 24 hours after Gladys Berejiklian, 51, announced she was quitting over the ICAC probe into her relationship and dealings with dodgy MP Daryl Maguire, 62.

Mr Perrottet, who became Treasurer in January 2017 when Ms Berejiklian replaced Mike Baird as Premier, is also a devout Catholic and hails from the Liberal Party’s Right faction.

He was first elected to Parliament in March 2011, when Barry O’Farrell’s Coalition swept to power in a landslide ending Labor’s 16 years in office.

During that decade, he has held three different electorates, Castle Hill, Hawkesbury and now Epping in Sydney’s north-west, switching seats at each election in 2015 and 2019 to the dismay of his Liberal colleagues.

Ms Berejiklian’s decision to stand down sparked speculation NSW’s Covid map’s roadmap may be in jeopardy once a new premier takes over.
