Justin Trudeau went to the China G20 meeting — and the grownups ignored him

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Did you see that ad showing Justin Trudeau in China, hugging little pandas? It said, "Welcome, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his first official trip in China and to participate at the G20 summit in Hangzhou.”

Except that ad isn’t paid for by the Chinese government. It was paid for by the government of Canada. The government of Canada welcomed the government of Canada to China…

The other G20 leaders barely noticed Justin Trudeau. He was the only leader who brought his family along. He’s more interested in being a tourist than in talking about serious things.

No new trade deal. No new investment.

No movement on human rights — not even on the Canadian hostage being held by China, Kevin Garratt, held illegally, in deteriorating health. Trudeau wouldn’t even say his name in public.

None of that stuff matters to Trudeau’s base in the media party. They got the shot of Trudeau and his family skipping, and posing and looking hunky.

But trade, human rights, security? Only squares like Stephen Harper care about that stuff…

NEXT: Marc Morano of Climate Depot joined me to talk about China's agreement to ratify the Paris climate deal.

You can join Marc and I (and other Rebels) at the Alberta premieres of his new comedy documentary, "Climate Hustle" — get your tickets HERE!

THEN: United Nations expert Claudia Rosett says we should enjoy using the internet while we can, before Obama abandons it to be run by the UN.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

I recall Justin as a child on the government jet throwing temper tantrums. He never really grew up, he just got taller.

This why the chinese call him small potatoes and Freeland thinks it’s adorable.
commented 2016-09-08 22:04:07 -0400
Love his new nickname – PM Potatohead. Fitting, as that is about the size of his brain.
commented 2016-09-08 11:45:26 -0400
There is a great irony in the photo of Justin Trudeau and the great wall of China. You have a man who lives and breathes globalization standing next to a wall devoted to xenophobia. That’s priceless.

Canada is barely a grown up nation, but got a little more so under Harper. Trudeau by his nature just put us back in the play pen.

Our little {sweet} potato is a showy peacock buying vanity posters in China …. our ultra-progressive , uber-feminist leader always on pretentious photo-shoots, scores some more self-glorification. Time for an intervention , before this feral narcissism starts consuming that affected MSM-luvvie….

Canada’s idiot excels again! Dope but very dangerous to what’s left of our civilized society! Lib party circus in town for another few years, can’t imagine what will be left when the clown acts are over. First Nation folks are going to be in for a huge set back if they keep siding with The UN genocidests.

Justin Trudeau, a genuine French Fry.
Could Canada ask for anything more representative?
Oh, alright. Little Poutine.

It would be funny if it weren’t so damn sad.

Baby Doc struts across a large open floor, comes up and shakes the hand of the Chinese leader, smiles, cameras taking snaps, then strides off as if he just enlightened the man. That about sums up Baby Doc’s Big Adventure Over There!

The most we see of him and his wife, Princess Hasnobrains, is walking here, there and everywhere as tourists. Of course on our dime. Yes, the Liberals are back, entitled to their entitlements, and not worrying about watching our for we little folk.

BTW, did Princess Hasnobrains’ parents come along? They usually do. Maybe a few cousins? After all, its only taxpayer’s money.

Three years and two months to go. Hopefully the 39% who voted for him will decide otherwise. I guess Baby Doc will try bringing in enough Chinese and “refugees” to keep him in office, especially once he rejigs our electoral system so he will remain Crown Prince.

Miss Mr. Harper yet?

CBC & trudeau are a EMBARRASSMENT to all real Canadians!!! Neither SPEAK FOR US!!!
commented 2016-09-07 08:59:23 -0400
Prime Minister Playdeau, what human rights violations?
commented 2016-09-07 08:06:07 -0400
Hey Jay what reliable news source like the CBC?
commented 2016-09-07 06:15:47 -0400
Flogging a dead horse here …. Trudeau is/has been/will continue to be a national embarassment and an incompetent leader. Whether it’s the rebel publishing his antics or some other left wing media source, reasonable Canadians find him more and more to be an annoyance … And he hasn’t even been in office for a year.
commented 2016-09-07 02:47:44 -0400
No wonder the Liberals hated Harper. He was Respected on the World Stage . Liberals don’t want Respect they want Love. Peace and Love. I am so proud that the Chinese call our little Justin- ’ Little Potato’. This is just ever so cute. Maybe someday, the whole world will have cute names for Canadas’ Little ‘Mikey’…
commented 2016-09-07 02:13:18 -0400
Yup, Little Potato Head spoke, apologized for Canada"s human rights record,was ignored by the adults in the room and came back with nothing but fond memories of another family vacation paid for by other Canadians. Sure, Canada is back.
commented 2016-09-07 01:51:52 -0400
WTF took so long vajay jay. That idiot was a punk bitch among world leaders. We as Canadians should be hanging our heads in shame to have that man child represent us anywhere…..including our own parliament. You have an unhealthy crush on that fool.
commented 2016-09-07 01:32:21 -0400
Trudeau did well in China. Besides the strange adulation shown him in the Chinese press, he spoke clearly about human rights.

The Rebel should draw on some reliable news sources, instead of disdaining them.

NDP Sucks Obama was just mad because Putin knows he is weak and the Putin does not care about the race card.
commented 2016-09-07 00:35:57 -0400
Trudeau did not bother to lecture the Chinese about the “Environment” cuz he knows that would not be tolerated by the Chinese government ! He sure lectured us Canadians about how important it was and gave us a big lecture about it ! He is a total hypocrite and political hypocrite -
commented 2016-09-07 00:33:18 -0400
This idiot Trudeau has no shame. How can a person be so stupid and have world leaders treat him as stupid and still continue as if nothing has occurred?
This shirtless wonder with the penis nose is an utter failure. He could do himself and all of us a huge favor and request doctor assisted suicide.
Penis face with nice hair.

I will say it again, this garbage msm are the absolute worst evil brainwashers of the Canadian people I have ever seen, not a boo of the condemnation of this incompetent, incapable, self-absorbed idiot who is at the helm of this country. Shame on them, shame on them, you might as well CLOSE Ctv, cbc and global so-called news consortium. A good portion of us are smarter than this and we get our news from the reliable sources. I am just blown away at the inept, stupid, useless and lying reporters, can’t they see and hear what a baffoon this trudoop is, are they all blind and stupid, what a crying shame. The Rebel is better than this, thank God.
commented 2016-09-07 00:13:33 -0400
All female cabinet Ministers I have heard off seem as empty headed as their boss. It would be embarrassing to have some showing intelligence when he has none.
commented 2016-09-06 23:35:43 -0400
Still nothing from the trolls.
commented 2016-09-06 23:19:43 -0400
Trudeau is a national embarrasment
commented 2016-09-06 23:08:50 -0400
The poster is just showing PM Fagboy, the King of Social License, just realizing he sharted in his pants, and Gerry Buttfuck wasn’t around to wipe his ass for him.
Poor Justine.
commented 2016-09-06 23:04:26 -0400
Ezra, please remember that the Maritimes and Newfoundland elected 100% liberals with the Little Potato to Parliament. Then you talk about the New Brunswick legislature voting unanimously in favor of the energy east pipeline. Well everyone knows the liberals are against oil, You can’t have it both ways.
commented 2016-09-06 22:34:14 -0400
Well Ezra, trade deals take care of themselves, just like budgets balance themselves – you just have to rethink things as you do other things as basic as space and time – then you’ll see the brilliance of doing nothing.
