Kyle Sandilands has buried the hatchet with Barnaby Joyce by defending his late night fall in the middle of calls for resignation of former deputy prime minister.
Daily Mail Australia revealed exclusive video of Joyce, 56, lying on the sidewalk on Lonsdale Street in the Canberra suburb of Braddon around midnight last Wednesday.
Sources said the Nationals leader was sitting in a large flower pot while having an animated telephone conversation with his wife, Vikki Campion, when he fell, “rolled” on the floor and continued his call.
Joyce has since blamed mixing prescription medications with alcohol for her behavior.
Radio host Sandilands has been locked in a long-running dispute with Joyce since 2015, after he criticized the politician’s decision to give former Hollywood couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard 50 hours to get their dogs out of Australia or face them being sacrificed.

However, despite their turbulent history, Sandilands decided to defend Joyce on his KIIS FM radio show on Monday by punching the person who filmed him on the sidewalk.
“Instead of the guy offering him help, like in the TikTok era, the guy thought it would be funny to film him and not even ask him, ‘Are you okay?'” “That’s bullshit,” Sandilands said.
—Poor Barnaby. Barnaby and I had our ups and downs. “I threatened him and I also supported him,” Sandilands continued.

He went on to recall how he defended Joyce for starting a secret relationship with his press secretary Vicki Campion, which resulted in the end of his marriage to his first wife.
The scandal culminated when then-Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull instituted a ban on ministers having sexual relations with their staff, known colloquially as a “fuck ban”.
‘Do you remember when (Joyce) started bothering her assistant or whatever, or one of her employees and everyone was like, ‘Oh, that’s horrible’… and then they put the ‘fuck ban’ in place? Sandilands continued.
“I wasn’t a fan of the whore gang. I love having sex with the staff in the past. I know everyone has had sex with the people they work with,” he added jokingly.

Sandi Lands The row with Joyce began after the former deputy prime minister lodged an official complaint with the media watchdog in 2015, after the radio host verbally abused him during an on-air row.
The heated segment, which occurred on KIIS FM in March 2015, related to the smuggling of actor Johnny Depp’s dogs Pistol and Boo to Australia.
Kyle called the then Agriculture Minister a “wan***,” a “loser,” an “absolute joke” and a “gerbil of a thing,” before Joyce abruptly hung up.

Joyce gave former glamor couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard 50 hours to remove the dogs from the country or face putting them down, citing quarantine rules designed to protect Australia from animal-borne diseases.
Kyle, no stranger to controversy, became angry before the interview with Barnaby, saying the minister’s comments about the two dogs made Australians look like “redneck losers”.
But Sandilands’ comments, while disrespectful, were part of a robust exchange of views between the two and did not breach the industry code, according to the media watchdog.
My Joyce disputed the ruling, complaining and insisting that Kyle should be appropriately reprimanded for the incident.
