The prime minister of Australia, is being criticized after publishing a photo of himself spending time with his granddaughter on Facebook.

The photo shows Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull enjoying himself at the Australian Football League game between the Swans and Bombers on Friday.

Turnbull was kissing his granddaughter Alice, who was leaning on his leg and arm, while holding a cup of beer in one hand.

The cup of beer was half empty.

The prime minister wrote: “Multitasking at the footy.”

Many people called the prime minister “irresponsible” for holding his baby granddaughter while drinking an alcoholic beverage.

A few people defended Turnbull, and praised him for being natural.

Leoni Freeman wrote: “Such a special photo. The PM is entitled to a day of footy watching.”

Arnav Gandhi wrote: “Wasting 150 million dollars and watching the footy at the same time. #Multitasking.”

Wayne Mills wrote: “What absolute disgrace. We and thousands cannot afford to go to the footy let alone turn the TV on or have heating that we cannot afford. My elderly neighbours are in bed at 5.00pm with blankets to save power. Just bring back COAL.”

Jeanette Cowper wrote: “You wanted the job, get off your butt and try and fix this country. I have always been a liberal supporter, not now. But I’m glad you can afford to go to the football. Most people can’t.”

The photo of the prime minister went viral on Facebook.
