'We're just having a bit of an earthquake here' — New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern in quake on live TV

‘Quite A Decent Shake Here'

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern kept right on going with her work when a 5.6 magnitude Earthquake hit — while she was live on TV speaking about the ongoing COVID-19 threat.

'We're just having a bit of an earthquake here Ryan, quite a decent shake here.'

Jacinda Ardern kept her cool as tremors shook the room. She was on-air, doing an interview.

Wow, New Zealand is fortunate to have a leader who keeps focused, appears to be pretty authentic, and stays on the job when things get real.

She was rattled, the building she was in was rattled, but she kept right on.
