Barbara Kay: How dignity lost its shirt in high office

Justin Trudeau, still pumped from Gay Pride Parade.

Justin Trudeau, still pumped from the Gay Pride Parade.

An Ontario family, out camping in Gatineau Park near Ottawa last weekend, was startled to cross paths with the Prime Minister and his family enjoying a cave-exploration excursion. As is his wont, Justin Trudeau greeted the Godby family members with affability and enthusiasm. And then he posed for the now-obligatory selfie with one of the Godby children.

It apparently did not occur to Trudeau to ask his excited young fan to wait a moment while he put on a shirt.

    Now that the unemployment rate in Alberta is over 8 percent, will Canada’s favorite prime minister approve the oil pipelines? Oh I forgot, he is too busy spending time and 55 million dollars on why whiny indians kill each other.

    It would of been a long wait for the kid. Everyone knows Justin can’t get dressed until his mommy picks out his clothes.

    • Nothing against Idiot Boy but in the picture he looks looks like one of
      the faggy councilors that ACLU forces on the Boy Scout organization.

    “Justin Trudeau, still pumped from the Gay Pride Parade.”

    I’m sure he was and is.

      He also might be hot for Mamma “strap on” Wynne. Yes, a disgusting image I know.

    • Is there a string of bad jokes coming?

      • Observer

        They already happened in the 2014 Ontario election, 2015 federal election and 2016 Alberta election.

    Liberal MP on the CBC says that with all the terrible economic news, Canadians simply have to put their noses to the grind stone and hope for the best. Gee, I feel much better now.

    • We were riding the storm before. Now, our houses have been blown away.

    Please end the suspense.

    As for Donald Trump, he represents the utter collapse of the concept of dignity of office. He wouldn’t know what the word “dignity” meant if it jumped up and ran its fingers through his Cheetos-coloured hair. Trump won’t take off his shirt because he is no Trudeau or Putin physically, but mentally he is a naked selfie video none of us can turn away from, or turn off.

    Trudeau is not to be compared to Trump for offences against decorum

    Ya lost me there barb.

    • That’s true but maybe she is trying to reconcile with Jon. To Canadian snobs Trump is a convenient common target.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, and, IMO, this one suggests chicken hawk.

    Little boys bring out the muslim in him.

    The man-child wouldn’t know dignity if it smacked him in the face. He is a disgrace to the office of prime minister. Of course neither one of his parents had any sense of dignity, so the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

    Huge b.j. for P.M. Zoolander in this week’s Maclean’s BTW.

    As much as I dislike Dustbin, this is a Nepotism driven petty piece of crap
    a lot of men don’t wear shirts outside in the summer, it’s normal

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      A lot of men are not the P.M., and posing for photographer’s photos without a shirt on is not the norm, btw. Just sayin’ . Justin is anything but normal.

    • Only good looking men can pull it off convincingly.

      Trudeau is not one of them.

  • Tom Forsythe

    When I saw her trending on Twitter, I was afraid she had died. This is much better.

    Kay has Alzheimers
    Trump lost dignity?

  • barryjr

    For eff sakes lighten up. If PM Shithead wants to go shirtless when he’s off trying to enjoy some time with his family so what. What’s wrong Barbara a slow news wire day so you just typed up some shit to prove what a doting old biddy you are?

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      Yeah, fair enough. I think all PMs and premiers should go shirtless and pose for every newspaper any old day. It’s so normal.

      • barryjr

        I didn’t hear that he posed shirtless for a newspaper. Once again Barbara Kay has run out of stuff to vent her spleen on so she’s attacking PM Shithead for nothing. It’s no wonder the socialists go apeshit when somebody attacks Shithead for legitimate reasons after this old biddy writes something like this. Maybe she should be moved to the Sunday afternoon Tea and Crumpets page.

    • He is NEVER governing. He is campaigning, attention-seeking.

      That’s what this spectacle is.

  • JoKeR

    Maybe Justin sees himself as contemporary Canada’s Batman™

    He’s turning into Randy, on trailer park boys…

    Why do they keep saying useful idiot? It should just say idiot.
