N.Z. Prime Minister Worries If Reporter Who Forgot Question Gets Enough Sleep During Pandemic

Ardern was at one time the world’s youngest woman world leader having taken office at age 37. In June 2018, she also became the second world leader to ever have a baby while holding office.

Arden’s exchange with the Herald reporter this week was tweeted out by Joyce Karam with United Arab Emirates media outlet The National. That post has since been seen tens of thousands of times.

“At at time when journalists are under attack by US President, expelled by China, Egypt and censored by many authoritarian states, it’s heartening to see civility in leadership,” Karam wrote.

Walls, the reporter in the video, also had some good news to share afterwards.

“I can report, after a couple of days off, that I’ve had plenty of sleep,” he tweeted. “Thanks for your concern Prime Minister.”
