“What an embarrassment”: Trudeau’s 60 Minutes interview brings back “stereotype of the smug little Canadian”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Justin Trudeau is getting ready for his big trip to the White House So he thought he’d introduce himself to Americans by insulting them on 60 Minutes, one of the biggest news shows in the U.S.

He told them, in his best drama teacher voice, that they’re a bit stupid, at least compared to him:

"It might be nice if they paid a little more attention to the world... Having a little more of an awareness of what's going on in the rest of the world, I think is, is what many Canadians would hope for Americans”.

So the substitute drama teacher, former snowboarder bum, never had a real job till he was nearly 40, trust fund rich kid, is telling Americans they should be smart and worldly, like him.

For ten years under Stephen Harper, we had forgotten the stereotype of the smug little Canadian: Whatever America did, we did the opposite, just to show we weren’t American.

But Trudeau is reaching back to the bad old days, when Jean Chretien, the Liberal Prime Minister, implicitly blamed the United States for causing 9/11.

In the first congratulatory phone call from Barack Obama, Trudeau blurted out that he was quitting the NATO coalition against the Islamic State.

That’s really what Justin Trudeau means about an “awareness about going on” in the world. Following things on Twitter, uttering some impotent cliches, taking selfies — and letting the Americans and our NATO allies doing something about it.

What an embarrassment.

I am glad to see others see what a piece of work Justin really is. I am Canadian and this man is an embarrassment to us all

Well for ten years under Harper the Americans wouldn’t even talk to us or invite us to the White House, you obviously hate Trudeau for partisan reasons but with him power now finally the Americans are listening to us and inviting us to come visit again. Hate him all you want, your country is embracing us like never before and finally notices that we exist. Harper couldn’t even get Obama on the damn phone. Trudeau is what Canada needs right now unfortunately (I didn’t vote for him personally though).

Boy let me point out , when EZRA does a piece of justifiable mocking on the Incdooge,it’s like troll bait, they see the flash and bite spite out bite again with out taking their eyes off the Panther Martin.

Ezra Levant may indeed come across as a “smug little Canadian” but I think it is wishful thinking to call it a stereotype. Most Americans have no clue who Levant is and couldn’t care less about his self-righteous attitude.

Heard a report on a MSM radio station yesterday about the opposition leader Ambrose taking on Trudope over aligning himself with a U.S. interest group intent on shutting down Canada’s energy industry. Trudope would not answer, but let one of his minions respond! (Climate change, blah, blah!) Interesting that at least a minority of the MSM would report something non judgmental about the intent of our dictraitor in waiting and valid concerns of Canadians!!

A bouncer? The only thing he ever bounced were socialist ideas off his BFF Gerald Butts.

I am sorry to wake you from your slumber, but Hillary is going to be President – not Trump.

Joe Nobdy,
You can get AIDS from open-mouth kissing.
You might want to check your facts and tone down your ignorance by doing a little reading.

RE : Joe Nobody should take his own advice ! Where In my comment did I say anything about spreading aids ? Who is ignorant , maybe you should tone down your stupidity and read a little !

Kevin – MSM is to busy spewing BS about the terribly oppressed women folk. Did you see how many retarded articles there were on CBC yesterday about wage gap, and sex discrimination, and how men will see violence against women, but not report it, because men are all violent rapists.

Christensen – AIDS doesn’t spread through saliva. Tone down your ignorance, by doing a little reading.

I hope somebody gives Justine a big wet aids kiss at the next gay parade !

Maybe he should start worrying about Canada and Canadians rather then attempting to show the world that he is some saint , this guy is an embarrassment to Canadians and the worst is the MSM continues to put this retard on a pedestal .

CHARLETON G commented seconds ago
I am amazed at how many Americans like what he said! He insults them and they like it! Left-wing masochist?

Remember that there is a big “hate on” for Trump and fear that the “single party system” in the US is going to get stopped – the US MSM are reporting much like the torstar/CBC up here – so what you read from the US is embellished to the left.

George Soros has had 8 years to convert masses through Obama to the left – a 12 year old makes for a great 20 year old militant and there’s lots of them – mostly unemployed.

Remember Charleton, the impression Trudeau leaves behind is obvious anywhere he goes – Bernie Trudeau is a complete fkg idiot.

Rachel Alexander, writing for Townhall in October 2015, called the prime minister little more than a Sanders-style socialist.

“I have mixed feelings about Justin Trudeau’s election as prime minister of Canada,” she wrote. “I am distantly related to him, but he’s basically a socialist. … [His] issue positions on his campaign website … [were] pretty far left, and not much different from what socialist Bernie Sanders is saying in the U.S.”

Canada’s own Bernie Sanders – that sounds about right – Bernie Trudeau!!!

It terms of Junior’s boxing career, it is indeed a pity he did not pursue a professional career in the sport.

Somebody may have beaten some sense into him and he would have been be out of politics.
commented 2016-03-08 05:31:22 -0500
Is there any way someone could neuter Junior’s vocal cords?
commented 2016-03-08 05:11:25 -0500
For those suggesting that our Dear Leader Junior represents the thinking of the young with a new and fresh perspective, please be advised that this neophyte has absolutelty nothing new to offer. His daddy has already “been there and done that”.
Really he’s just so 1968.
Of course you would have to be a grumpy old fart to know that.

I couldn’t believe the horrible segment 60 minutes put on trudoop. It was full of lies and misleading garbage. Within 5 minutes, I was damn near sick to my stomach. Had to turn the channel, sounded like ctv and cbc and global. A bouncer? A teacher, which is a COMPLETE LIE. Just sickening, I thought 60 minutes had more sense than to put out such garbage, by the way any feed back from Americans and Trump?
commented 2016-03-08 02:15:18 -0500
The 60 Minutes piece on Trudeau glowingly highlighted the boxing match where Trudeau throttled Brazeau. But they did not even mention the fact that that little spectacle was sponsored by SUN TV to highlight the graft of the old Conservative Party in appointing the pretty-boy Brazeau because he was a native with nice long hair. No wonder Ezra Levant is pissed off.
commented 2016-03-08 02:04:39 -0500
Sheldon …"Berg"’’s post is almost a stand alone article. Well written, clear, cohesive.

Trudeau is an abomination. But the man is a clinical narcissist and unable to comprehend his own behavior and actions. Canadian voters are extremely poor judges of character.

This country has no future in the 21st century. America is mostly energy independent, and now with the strong dollar, a commodity crash, and a weak global economy the time is ripe for an American domestic resurgence.

No the “good” times won’t be back, and the oil industry is NOT going to recover. Only idiots think this way and leaves things to fate.

Canada is finished. canadians with marketable skills should start thinking about relocating to the USA.
commented 2016-03-08 01:57:10 -0500
It is too bad Ezra Levant’s piece cannot be seen by more Americans to balance the love-in language they are exposed to through their own media. If all they see are slatheringly positive pieces like the 60 minutes item they are left envying Canada and our youthful and insightful PM. Little will they realize that Canada has, proportionately, just as many bigots and xenophobes as they have.
At least at the State Dinner Trudeau will not have the sense of humour of “the little guy from Shawinigan” who always seemed to get a chuckle from US crowds.

Justin Americans are smarter than you, they prove it every time they tie there shoelaces without help.

Big mistake when they showed Kim Catrall instead of Maggie, one only played a promiscuous tramp on TV , the other one is that in real life LMAO!

Michael Mann and Ron Christensen please tell us why you left wing idiots prefer people from middle eastern cities who have a life already set up and face no danger to be brought here and given everything while Yadzidi and Christian people who are in grave danger and have been raped numerous times are somehow beneath your notice? Seems you are the bigots LMAO!
commented 2016-03-08 01:37:19 -0500
Ron Christensen the only racist here is you, and Justin of course, his Jew hating cabinet makes me sick. And yes , since you lefties say Islam is a race then so are Jews. LOL!
