On Justin Trudeau’s luxury vacation to India, one of the gauges on the plane flickered a bit on the flight over.
I’m guessing something that trivial happens on every single flight of every single plane in the world, but CTV went into full panic mode:
"...a gauge designed to monitor engine temperature began 'fluctuating randomly' (...) and a ground crew at a scheduled refueling stop in Rome found 'a few loose wires.'”
Well, then isn’t it obvious? We need to buy the Prime Minister a brand new VIP style jet — to compete with Donald Trump, who is getting a new 747.
I know why the US president needs Air Force One: It’s a mobile White House, designed to be a command centre for the US armed forces in case of nuclear war. It’s built to withstand attack.
Trudeau’s plane? It’s to fly Trudeau on his 56 vacations so far.
That jet is old, to be sure. But it’s newer than the CF-18s that our Canadian fighter pilots use. And Trudeau has said he’s ruling out the F-35 replacement, because Trump doesn’t like Trudeau’s subsidies to Bombardier.
Say, do you think the odd CF-18 has a “loose wire” or a “flashing gauge”? Of course. But do you see CTV going to the wall to get new planes for them?
And CTV, and the rest of the media? They don’t care. Because they’ll be able to fly with Trudeau in style, as they type up their latest glowing press releases for him....
NEXT: Our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid comes on to talk more about the prime minister's lavish spending.
THEN: Joel Pollak, Breitbart News Senior Editor at Large, joins me to talk about the former White House officials who are invoking the Holocaust to criticize Trump's border enforcement politics.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
