“Fake news” — this time from the Prime Minister

Brian LilleyArchive

There’s a lot of furore over the concept of fake news and fake news organizations but what about fake news being fed by our political leaders, like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s mischaracterization of his swanky vacation on a billionaire’s private island?

Trudeau wants you to believe it was a family vacation, at the home of a family friend but now we know the truth as it’s been coming out in dribs and drabs for the last two weeks.

Liberal MP Seamus O’Reagan was there with his husband and so was Liberal Party President Anna Gainey, and her husband Tom Pitfield - the president of Canada 2020, a left wing think tank that gets money from the Liberal government, has done events with them, even went along for the state dinner in Washington.

Is that a family vacation?

Watch as I provide the full story, which even the Toronto Red Star said was a bad idea.

I’ll also remind you of another aspect: Hypocrisy, as in when the Liberals demanded the resignation of a Conservative who accepted a stay at a hunting cabin belonging to the former owner of the Quebec Nordiques.

So, what about their stance now on their own leader?

In his farewell address, US President Obama said it breeds cynicism in politics when politicians pounce on behaviour of the other guys while forgiving it on their own team.

I agree, it is revolting so, a simple question for the Liberals --- will you ask the prime minister to resign? Will you throw him and Seamus O’Reagan out of the Liberal caucus?

I won’t hold my breath waiting on an answer but Trudeau knows he messed up which might be part of the reason he and his team are being so secretive.

I wonder if the idiots at rebelmedia even realize that the majority of their “articles” are the very definition of fake news.

Why would CBC not want to take the heat off the man who bribed them for good coverage. Their loyalty was paid for. With your tax dollars.

I’m sick of that smug stupid look on his face. He thinks he’s the cat that got the canary. But one day he will pay for his evil ways, and that will be on judgement day.

Megalomaniacs never do anything wrong – it’s always other people responsible for their mistakes.

Is megalomania or bi-polar hereditary?

“…but Trudeau knows he messed up …”

Only because his advisors are telling him so. He is sociopathic little narcissist, so he has no inner voice telling him that he did anything wrong.

But this was all on display long before the election, when the news broke about our little Tinkerbell regularly absenting himself from his parliamentary duties so he could collect $15,000.00 to $30,000.00 speaking fees from charities and publicly-funded institutions.

And whether it’s the election of the likes of turdo la doo to the highest office in the land, the multiple re-elections of McGuinty the pathological liar, or the outpouring of blind support for Rob Ford after he was caught consorting with drug-dealing riff-raff , Canadians in ever larger numbers show us that they just don’t give a shit about ethics.

Look at the crows feet developing around boy wonders eyes. I’m hoping that we get to feed him some crow on the way to prison, in the near future.

Considering the amount of vacations Trudeau has been on since he took office 15 months ago, one has to wonder if Harper took that many vacations in the same amount of time what would have been the response from the CBC and the rest of the main stream media.

CBC this morning wants the media to cut Trudeau some slack.

So when was the last time Trudeau visited Aga Khan on his island before Trudeau became PM?

Jay Kelly,

You and I, as plebs, go on vacation for a mental health break away from work.

Baby Doc goes on vacation to get away from not working..
commented 2017-01-12 02:53:23 -0500
I love it the way Jay Kelly manages to step into the same pile of Canada goose poo twice, and every time… Why didn’t he welcome Canada’s 150th anniversary year on native soil; Ottawa fireworks and all, and why didn’t he have guts to to say he was “leaving us plebes all for sunnier climes”?… Looking forward, by the way, from the fallout of dissin’ Trump’s inauguration on the 20th…

Jay Kelly his position makes this a crime. You are an idiot.

“The honeymoon with Trudeaumania 2.0 is nearly done.”

Disagree with you there Bill. The honeymoon may be over for a number of regular Canadians that voted Libtard or will be when the bills come due, but not for the public sector or the third party interests that are pulling strings behind the curtain. They are riding high and will continue to do so until the Emperor with no brains is dethroned.

The honeymoon with Trudeaumania 2.0 is nearly done. When the bills come due and the damage is felt, Canadians will deeply regret their stupidity.

You mean he should have stayed away ON his vacation and never returned.

If the Aga Khan is such a good, personal friend, then why didn’t he wait ’til potatoe head ended his term as pm to invite him and his liberal friends to his cottage on the isle?

If he won’t answer any questions now, he sure as heck won’t answer any while he’s flying back and forth across Canada on his diversion…sorry, his grassroots trip.

Pathological liars will do any—-thing to redirect the attention from their lies, with new lies. Et voila.
commented 2017-01-11 23:52:03 -0500
Do you think the Prime Minister should have stayed away from his Christmas vacation?

Honestly, if I had a chance to get away for a few days like that I would take it.

The Doctor will tell you that if you can get away for a vacation it will do you well. Trudeau probably got the advice and took it.

Good for him.

What happened to sunny ways?Now the retarded 39% will see why they were almost extinct.Same old shit from Lieables.Where are all you liberal cheer leaders now.To stoned to know what is happening.
You notice he never said Christmas vacation.Says it all.

Billy Howard: Thank you. That was a very plausible diagnosis, and quite a bit disturbing. Yet that’s just the way the boy is – partly genetic and partly societal influences. So if and when the History is ever recorded, who will be held accountable for letting this happen?
commented 2017-01-11 19:47:05 -0500
What does he mean the Aga Khan has known him since he was a toddler? He still is a toddler!

JT is a smarmy POS that 39% of Canadians voted for. I call them the basket of retards.
I don’t think Justin is stupid, I think Butts talked him into running for PM as a lark and, next thing you know, playboy ski instructor/part-time drama teacher becomes the leader of Canada.
His narcissism prevents him from caring about Canadians, he only cares about his stature and gallivanting around the world like some entitled prince. That stupid permanent grin says it all.
He doesn’t care about re-election as much as creating some globalist enviro-freak legacy, and to reach the goal his father never achieved: UN Secretary General. The future of Canada be damned.

The fact ah ah ah ah is ah ah that the ah ah family ah vacation ah ah was a private ah ah affair. We have to suffer 3 more years of this popinjay!

Can you imagine the reaction of the CBC and the MSM to a conservative dodging answers like this? Sure you can.
Can you Imagine CBC and the rest of the MSM holding this smug bastard to the same standard?
Neither can I.
commented 2017-01-11 19:19:44 -0500
The biggest reason why the Trudeau will get away with it is because of his the media applies pressure when it suits their purposes.
commented 2017-01-11 19:13:52 -0500
Canada is back to the Lying Party of Corruption because it is 2015. Date pending the inquiry about whether it has become 2016 yet, because most inquiries take two years to keep the board members employed. Then next year, they can be rolled over to determine if it is 2017. Heck, this way the LPC don’t need electoral reform to remain in power.

Fake news from a fake PM, seems to be in balance

I guess he’s forgotten that God hates a liar. I guess since he is now a Muslim, it’s part of their game plan to lie and deceive. I can’t wait until the pay back comes.

Lee-it’s part of their DNA.

Talking of Fake News. Fakey Flakey Trudeau and his Carbon Tax, should be aware that the River Danube has frozen over and they are using Ice Breakers to smash the Ice.

time for a petition to see him resign over this.

What is more annoying his constant smug look or the endless hugging?
