Yesterday I told you about David Cochrane, a government journalist working at Trudeau’s CBC state broadcaster.
Cochrane had spent days on the Liberal campaign bus, but he literally asked no questions for two days — because no reporters on that campaign bus were allowed to ask questions for two days.
What’s the point of being on a campaign bus if you're not allowed to ask questions?
Cochrane humiliated himself on Twitter by defending Trudeau’s silence, and making excuses: Trudeau was really busy; I mean, they were moving really fast, so that explained it. He was so mocked for that comment he deleted that tweet.
Basically, he sounded more or less indistinguishable from a leader's press secretary.
Then came a video clip of him just allowing himself to be treated like a good little puppy being rewarded by his master: Trudeau gives him some free food, and says the Liberals always take care of the CBC.
That video went viral on Twitter — and then it disappeared, too.
But it wasn’t CBC that nuked it, that we know of. Global News did, because they’re the ones who recorded it in the first place — their little logo is on the bottom of the video.
Now, why would Global take down their own video that embarrassed Trudeau — and the CBC — and the cosy relationship between the Liberals and the media...?
Eventually, Global uploaded a version of the clip again — but one shot from a different angle, that made it a bit less obsequious. The full clip, which I'll show you tonight, tells a very different story...
David Cochrane had the best day of his life yesterday, and he didn’t even know that he was being manipulated, laughed at, mocked by Trudeau. It’s that pickup artist move he has:
Trudeau close-hugs, touches, mauls, pats, gropes any women he wants to psychologically dominate. We've shown you this time after time. The latest one is his creepy handsy encounter with 19-year-old tennis champion Bianca Andreescu.
Trudeau does close hugs with men, too. But he didn’t do it right then with Cochrane — his hands were full, and I think there was a barrier between them.
So he used his actions and his words.
Trudeau is psychologically manipulating him, lording it over him, rubbing it in, and Cochrane doesn’t even realize it.
I wonder what the ordinary Canadian thinks? Of Trudeau; but also of Cochrane; and also of Global News trying so, so, hard to hide the whole thing from Canadian voters...
NEXT: Sue-Ann Levy, veteran Sun reporter, joins me to talk more about the election.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
