Canada, the U.S., and the Donald

Canada’s most attention-grabbing personality is the new Liberal prime minister Justin Trudeau, whom a swooning electorate has just elevated to the highest office in the land. Possessing no relevant business or political experience and no demonstrable leadership qualities apart from name recognition and good looks, he is a dandiprat version of the fatuous nonentity America elected to lead them into a condition of weakness and insolvency. Many in the U.S. are now suffering Obama remorse and reassessing their folly. Eventually Canada, too, may come to its senses, though I wouldn’t bet on it. An Eloi people roistering in a Morlock world does not augur well for their future.

    I am not part of that “swooning electorate”. Never before in my life have I felt such shame and embarrassment as a Canadian. Previous Liberal PMs gave me nothing to feel national pride but none were such a national embarrassment.

    • Justin is such a dope. Fear his advisers however.

      • Alain

        Yes, we know the danger has always been with his backers and handlers.

      Everyone’s got to have a “shtick” in order to make a high public profile of themselves.

    • Clausewitz

      Liberal voters are the first step to becoming the Eloi from the Time Machine.

  • DMB

    His stupidity is almost evil.

  • BitterClinger

    Maybe because I’m not Canadian, but I don’t find him good looking at all. His nose is way too big, his hairline is way too high and his eyes have no spark of intelligence at all.

      I guess he has good facial symmetry, which is something we all (or so I’ve read) consider – unconsciously – in judging our fellow humans’ faces.

  • “dandiprat” Merriam-Webster doesn’t have an entry for it. Oxford Dictionary does. It’s of “unknown origin”. The definition is a State secret.

    The people on FaceBook are going nuts over his Selfies and showing up at places for a photo-op .
    They have already called him the best PM ever when he hasn’t actually done anything even over the Syrian refugee issue where the ones coming in that he got a Photo-op with were because of Harper and this weasel hijacked it to keep muslims happy.

    Will Canada ever get its own Donald Trump?
