Trudeau’s middle-class mantra shows he doesn’t get it

The “middle class” this; the “middle class” that.

He, like no prime minister before him, was going to help the middle class grow and prosper, and he sold it better than any snake-oil salesman and pill pusher anyone could ever envision.

It is his biggest political lie thus far, and the most flagrant of his multitude of broken promises in the two years since being elected.

    The English used to have a saying ‘blood will tell’. It means that even if you give someone lots of money you will always be able to tell what kind of social class their ancestors were. He may come from money but his attitude is low class.

      There’s another saying “you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear”.

        And a third: “you can bet Canadians will be stupid enough to vote for a clueless silky pony for PM because he has great hair.”

          Sad, but true. Too many low information voters.

    • Just as he speaks in French to confuse English-speakers.

      Rude to the core.

    His idea of middle class is flying all over the country at tax payer expense all summer, to attend pervert parades.

  • tom_billesley

    Middle class or milch cow.

  • Jay Harper

    A heavy tax should be placed on Trust Funds, so PM Zoolander can practice what he preaches.

  • A Hamilton Guy

    Oh yes! The middle class small businesses are just loving their tax increase.

    Aside from the fact that he spent the first 9 months of his pathetic existence drenched in a THC environment — and you think alcohol is damaging to neurological development? — he has surrounded himself with advisers who should have semblance of sanity, despite one’s opinion of their ideological-driven agenda(s).

    Much of what comes out of this sock puppet’s mouth, scripted by his closest adviser seems to come straight from the pages of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

    He blathers to an audience already stoned as they await the promised legalization of their preferred substance and who could care less about matters as dull as tax. Other audience members include those who can barely speak English and don’t really care to learn. They care only that Shiny Pony was the one who gave them the ticket to free Canadian loot.

    “Fairness” and “level playing fields” are code words and ham-fisted cover for something much more sinister. I fear that we will not know how sinister until it is far too late to do anything about it. That day is rapidly approaching.

      Well stated.

    One of the middle class opportunities that Trudeau (senior or junior) never faced was going without a meal because you had so little money, you fed your children first. Neither of them ever had so little money, that the mortgage was in danger. They never had to worry about money at all so they don’t appreciate what it takes to grind out a living (in the middle class) and risk it all in a small business.

    Justin is an arrogant, do nothing, know nothing loser that couldn’t finish any real task he started (as evidence, I posit the two university degrees that he didn’t finish). He got elected on name recognition and a nice head of hair (albeit empty). He is dangerous because he has never faced real hardship: doesn’t even know what it looks like.

      Milk and diapers or beer?
      That’s when I became a father.

      • Life hack: my mother used to insulate warm milk in a clean diaper while on day trips with babies. It might hold true for beer. 🙂

        But, seriously – Trudeau has always lived a life of wealth and an imperious attitude to go with it. Even if he met struggling parents, he wouldn’t give a sh–.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Warning, hate speech coming …. I hate him. Justin Trudeau will be the dissolution of Canada.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Can’t wait.

  • barryjr

    Trudeau got elected because the welfare bums living in the 5 eastern welfare provinces wanted to keep the cash flow from those provinces that earn their money. Thanks alot you eastern parasites for fucking up Canada with your stupid fucking votes.

      If you can’t support a CFL team in your province then you lose your seat at the table.

      I don’t see any quotation wrapping the statement: growing up my father taught me to respect the middle class.

      We all got Trudeau the First’s “respect” from a train window in Salmon Arm.

    Are taxes too low? No. Is spending too high? Yes.

    All that matters is that Trudeau recognizes that there is only one God and he is Allah and that Mohammad (peace be upon him) is Allah’s messenger.

    In 10 years , I will be laughing at all those who voted for the sock boy. Particularly Millennials losing houses and former government workers whose pension won’t allow them to get to the end of the month. There is a justice, real, natural…some call it karma, others consequence to stupidity.

    Sure, budgets balance themselves by heavy inflation, although the money are not worth anything near what they used to be.

      Waited through eight years of outrage for the Messiah to time out.
      And then a Miracle happened!

  • Um, he never did.

    But people get what they vote for.
