Clive Palmer appears to have made an awkward slip of the tongue - dropping a c-bomb when referring to the Federal Health Minister during a bizarre vaccine rant.

The mining billionaire and chairman of the United Australian Party (UAP) made the comments on Friday on the Gold Coast while claiming his party had reached a membership milestone.

In an audio recording, Mr Palmer claimed Covid-19 vaccinations did not cut down hospitalisations.

Mr Palmer claimed the vaccines were resulting in “a lot of Australian money” being handed over to the US.

“Scott Morrison’s government has ordered over 380 million doses of the vaccine and Greg C**t’s announcing today there’s another 90 million boosters coming,” Mr Palmer says.

The Courier Mail reports Mr Palmer also doubled down on his unvaccinated status, bizarrely comparing the nation’s jab push to a “Nazi holocaust”.

He claimed UAP’s membership base had grown to more than 70,000 – beating the two major parties and The Greens.

Earlier this year, Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles was captured on camera making a similar slip-up, appearing to drop a c-bomb while referring to Scott Morrison.

Mr Miles claimed it was a result of a stutter while discussing the PM’s fundraisers in town.
