The Washington Post is Already Pining for Justin Trudeau Instead of Trump

goofus and gallant

They are so scared they are not even thinking straight anymore.

For some, the improbable presidential candidacy of Donald Trump stopped being funny long ago. Republican eminences and custodians of the establishment gawk at the GOP front-runner’s  belligerent braggadocio, his irreverent attacks on party grandees, his far-fetched proposals, his aversion to substance or basic facts, and his not even thinly veiled bigotry.

And yet, Trump stands on the cusp of winning the Republican nomination, impervious to the slings and arrows of a growing list of vanquished foes.

There is one man, though, who seems to have also mastered the art of branding and showmanship for an adoring if partisan public — in a completely opposite fashion.

Canada’s new Liberal prime minister, Justin Trudeau, stormed to a stunning electoral victory last year. He did so while coping with the attacks of opponents who cast him as an inexperienced, slightly buffoonish dilettante trading on a powerful family legacy. Sound familiar?

But Trudeau’s progressive, inclusive message could not be more different than that of Trump. Here’s a rundown.

Then they delve into some stupid ‘Goofus and Gallant’ comparison Bull Sh*t!

    Their world, they see it coming down around their own heads and they haven’t a clue as to which way to turn.
    “It’s not supposed to be this way!”

    OK, America, so you won’t trade give us a straight one for one, Trump for Trudeau deal, then how about you take Trudeau for … a second round draft choice? No? A third round pick? No again? Alright, final offer: a 9th round pick and we throw in a little cash to sweeten the deal. Come on, surely you can find some use for him (or at least the Washington Post probably could).

      I keep saying, give Ted Cruz his citizenship back and he WOULD be the best Prime Minister you guys ever had, that wasn’t named named Macdonald or Mackenzie, and maybe even then…
      I have no doubt that he would be stellar.
      It would be some kind of Canadian ‘golden age’ of enlightenment and prosperity.

        Not Mackenzie.
        He was a Liberal.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        It’s the Golden Age of Entitlement.

      • Yesssss……

      • Minicapt

        He didn’t have Canadian citizenship, so there’s nothing to give back.


        • Drunk_by_Noon

          He was born there and renounced it a few years ago after he was senator.

          • Minicapt

            No, have a nice day.


          • Drunk_by_Noon

            He wasn’t born in Canada?
            Just say: “I deny reality and substitute my own!”

          • Minicapt

            Have a nice day.

        Macdonald was a drunken crook. The Gordon Campbell of his day.

    Trump’s success is catnip for canadian lefty humanities and social science majors. They’ve always defined “CANADA” by how it’s different (better) than the US. “HEALTH CARE” was getting pretty stale, having been milked as a national marker for 30 odd years. Trump will give them fresh material… years of knee slapping “good ‘uns” as they sip their “chi” and imagine how fashionable it must be again to have a canadian flag on a back pack.

    • It is pathetic.

    • Clausewitz

      Ahh, a good old fashioned Canadian Smugging. Love it when lefties go on and on about how much better they are when in fact they’ve never ever done anything of substance.

  • They clearly have never heard the idiot speak.

    Or what passes for speaking from him.

    • They prefer empty symbolism.

      • … as their paper drifts into irrelevance.

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          Its good for paper training a puppy.

          • A relative found the Toronto Star just as absorbent.

            He was my budgie.

    Wapo is a real world refutation of the theory which argues that Mad Cow Disease is not contagious.

  • Hard Little Machine

    The MSM is starting to go after the actual voters, WaPo, NYT, CNN, MSNBC even Fox has pretty much called for open warfare on half the electorate, calling them idiots, traitors, fools, white trash, racists, bigots, hillbillies and whatnot. I expect one of the TV pundits to soon call for concentration camps and the elimination of all civil and human rights for ‘those people’.

      hitler went 6 years early instead of the planned 1945 because Germany was almost broke by 1939. No doubt today’s marxists in high places are scratching a similar itch.
