I want to show you a couple of new video clips from Justin Trudeau — they say a lot about him. One is the most impenetrable word salad, when he’s asked about sexually assaulting a female reporter a few years back in Creston, B.C.
The other was how he chuckles at the murder of Marrisa Shen — he’s not laughing in glee, bu it’s still weird, and he brushes off the fact that he approved the accused murderer coming here from Syria as a “refugee."
The absolute passive subservience of the Media Party journalist who asked him the questions is also something to behold. And I think it’s the root of the problem.
Paul Wells, who works for Maclean’s magazine, which received $1.5 million last year from Trudeau. And he also works for the CBC, which received $1.5 billion last year from Trudeau.
So last night, this liberal partisan sat down with his boss. And, to his credit, he asked a real question. He asked it timidly, and vaguely, but he at least raised the subject of Trudeau sexually assaulting that female reporter in Creston.
Trudeau's answer didn't really make sense. It’s “extremely important” that his accuser came forward? That’s all he has to say? Like his reply to Wells about Kent Hehr, another Liberal MP accused of sexual misconduct, it's just a word salad. Bafflegab.
And no follow-up from Wells. Well, it’s obvious why. Because that would make the prince uncomfortable.
I'll also show you what Trudeau said when Wells asked him about the murdered girl in Vancouver, Marrisa Shen, who was allegedly killed by one of Trudeau's Syrian "refugees." That segment bothered me even more, as I'll explain tonight.
Lobbing softly phrased questions to the prime minister — and then letting him skate away by simply saying, “That’s not my view” — that’s not an interview. That’s stenography. That’s PR.
And that’s at least as big a problem as Trudeau’s own disastrous government.
