Canada doesn’t need a First Lady #PrayforSophie

Seems when Sophie Gregoire Trudeau accompanied her husband, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, to Washington, D.C. in March, the one thing she came away with was a bigtime envy for Michelle Obama’s cozy little operation in the White House’s East Wing.

Well, maybe, “cozy” isn’t exactly the right word. The U.S. First Lady has a staff of 22, about the same as every First Lady since Nancy Reagan.

So you can imagine our poor PM’s wife’s embarrassment when, over entrees at the state dinner, Mrs. Obama may have asked, “and how many assistants do you have Soph?”

“Um, just one,” Gregoire Trudeau might have had to confess, sheepishly.

    Rather pretentious of The Sun to allow a misspelling of “pretentious’ (sic). I guess the copy editors were the first to go to save costs.

    • Likely the case.

        I’m half-blind. I was referring to their spelling of pretentions (not pretentious). Hinglish can be so damn confusing and irrationals.

          That’s because English is an amalgam of Old English and French due largely to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.
          And the English have shamelessly stolen every useful word they’ve come across.
          I’m rather proud of malleable my language has been over the centuries.

            Don’t forget the Old Norse influence due to the Viking conquest and settlement of the Danelaw.;-)

            “English beats up other languages in dark alleys, then rifles through their pockets for loose grammar and spare vocabulary”

  • Like the Obamas, the Trudeaus see this as an opportunity to squander money on them.

    Heaven forbid anyone should disabuse them of that notion.

    • Lets hope the country comes to it’s senses.

        That would be the country that elected this jackass in the first place, right?

      • It won’t.

        This, like that Halifax bullying case, will be forgotten. Sophie will attempt this again.

    Let’s do some quick math. Canada has about 10% the population of the US thus Sophie should get 10% of Michelle’s staff of 22. She already has one assistant and two nannies. I think we’re good.

    • She’s an airhead, why waste the money?

        I blame the Jews and global warming.

        I agree we shouldn’t but we’re stuck with the style over substance prime minister for 4 years.

          Oh, it will be longer than that. Al Ceebeera and the rest of the MSM will see to it that Juthtinian’s reign rivals that of his shithead old man. 🙁

        Maybe she needs another assistant to make Thé Glacé for Justin?

        • Exile1981

          If she’s looking for someone to do the jobs she doesn’t want to do (ie nannies to raise her kids) then maybe she should hire a mistress for Justin so she doesn’t have to….

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            You figure Juthtinian isn’t one of those?

            My female friends have mentioned to me that the guys they have dated why are self centered the way turdeau is are all about their pleasure and not the women’s enjoyement. So I’m just saying it’s likely he’s the kind who finishes quickly and forgets to make sure his partner finishes.

        Sophie the Trophy is well on her way to being despised and hated all across our nation. Maybe in her eye’s that will be her contribution to nation building here in Canada.

    CBC TV panel this morning was brown-nosing Sophie, even the ‘conservatives’ on it. Yech.

  • Spatchcocked

    Poor Sophie…..the poor girl thinks she is as talented as beautiful as He her husband is fortunate to be… fortunate as this country is by his leadership and example. She thinks her intellect as well as His soars far far above us all formulating a new Canada in culture and philosophy.
    She must except that she like us must aid support and facilitate this savant son of the glorious Magus who first began shaping and forming this shapeless inchoate Canadian flesh into a people worthy of living in the wonderful new world awaiting us.

  • Spatchcocked

    I tells ya…..them Trudeau boys sure know how to pick them….

      They are smart enough to keep a firm lid on Maggie, though, have you noticed? Wouldn’t be cricket if it became painfully obvious to all and sundry how fuckin’ batshit crazy she is. Maggie Trudeau, a flake off the old Commie Bloc.

    I am sure the answer was known, before it was asked……Think abut it…….
