Maryam Monsef is Canada’s youngest, least-accomplished cabinet minister. She’s 31 but comes across as 18. Trudeau had to explain her inexplicable appointment to cabinet by the fact that she is female.
When Obama spoke in the House of Commons this summer, he mentioned Monsef precisely because of her skin colour and genitalia — and her claim to having been an Afghan refugee.
But Maryam Monsef now admits she was not born in Afghanistan but rather, Iran. Lived there for the first eight years of her life. It’s come out in the Globe & Mail.
(Do you believe that someone was vetted by the RCMP for cabinet — someone who could see top secret documents — without them finding out where she was born?)
But there’s more.
This year another story about her ran, in Le Devoir: One year before the 2015 election, she said she was selling her furniture and turning down Canadian jobs because politics “back home” called her.
Think about that. She was planning to go to Afghanistan, for politics, to “help women.” You want to rule over Afghanistan as some lady warlord, or some UN appointee, you’d better lie and say you were born there. Not like the Kabul newspapers are going to dig into it.
When Maryam Monsef decided to slum with us instead, she just couldn’t put that toothpaste back in the tube.
But no need — what was politically necessary in Afghanistan was political gold here in Canada…
