Justin picked The Hulk -- but who's his real superhero soulmate?

David MenziesMission Specialist

By now you've heard about Justin Trudeau's latest media love-in with a fawning admirer (posing as a journalist) whose tough question for Trudeau was, "Who's your favourite Avenger?"

After much consideration and deep thought, he chose Marvel's mightiest moral, the Hulk. He is "green" after-all.

(Watch out for the carbon tax this "green" guy will bring you!)

It did seem like a ludicrous choice for Justin, so which superhero does he truly have a kinship with?

I use my superhero-caliber analytical powers and the aid of an expert panel of comic geeks to figure out which comic book character best represents Justin, the "not quite ready" for prime time candidate.

The results might surprise you (or not).

Well said, Menz, as usual. Now pardon me, I’m off to adore my favorite new comic book hero, “Potboy”. Zap!

Hilarious, but with insightful analogies. Fun stuff. Thanks

Always interesting what the “Progressives” consider an attack ad when you just say someone is not ready but in there own adds they outright lie and viciously attack someones character and do not see the hypocrisy … Anyone remember the “Soldiers … in the streets … with guns!” ad? Only a few weeks to go into the second term and still no martial law.
Thanks Media Party you are doing a great job maintaining a strong left bent. <- Sarcasm :-P

So explain the love fest with conservatives and Trump – especially considering that Trump has given money to the Clintons and has agreed with and supported many liberal views – financially and through his provided opinion when asked.

“A dollop of Viagra!” That was funny. Thanks for the chuckle!

Jimmy said, "Everyone votes with popularity in mind. "

I do not agree with you. I am sure you believe that because that is how you think, but the people I know weight the parties and their policies and vote accordingly, you know, with maturity.

But then I know, Jimmy, that it is impossible to convince you of anything and this conversation is now devolved into a “yes they do / no they don’t” argument and is going no where. Guess we will have to agree to disagree.

I don’t think Trudeau will take this one, but if he sticks with politics – he will be Prime Minister with the next election. It is inevitable that he will be Prime Minister, so it doesn’t matter if he loses this one.

Everyone votes with popularity in mind. That’s the thing – conservative here think Stephen Harper is popular and viewed as the greatest Prime Minister ever. Do you really think Trump’s poll results have nothing to do his celebrity factor, showmanship and popularity among conservatives in addition to his political views?

Jimmy, if what you say about the tenancies of people to vote based upon the popularity of the politician, then Canada is screwed because we all know Justin “the airhead” Trudeau is the more popular.

However, you are looking at the popularity thing from the leftist viewpoint. The leftist “progressives” are by-and-large (but not all) a shallow group of whom I have no doubt do vote on the popularity of the politician rather than merit. So, I assume you are going to vote for the Airhead?

To be fair – you know full well that politicians have people write jokes for them or witty comments to appeal to the public. Everything is ultimately scripted one way or another. Politics is just as much of a popularity contest as it is about politics. This is why George Clooney would be the next President if he ran and if George Clooney was Canadian, he would bury Stephen Harper in the election.

“uh uh I like I like…uh uh … with uh with uh with uh …uh uh the Hulk ”
Wouldn’t Porky Pig or Daffy Duck be a better cartoon character for him to relate to than the Hulk? Da da dats all folks!!

The clip of Trudeau naming the Hulk as his ultimate super hero shows clearly not only that his answer was scripted but that he knew, ahead of time, that question was coming.

That whole choreographed Q&A is intended to target the youth vote – you know, the 45 and under demographic the Liberal Party assumes is so shallow all it cares about is the PM’s cool factor.

troodo emails his favourite questions to the MSM and the MSM asks them and reports this fraud as news.

No wonder PM Harper still faxes statements to the MSM. With the MSM’s child mentality like this, journalism amongst the MSM doesn’t exist in Canada anymore.

You have to be a blithering fkg idiot to pay a subscription for torstar or the slob and snail.
