Paul Wells' interview with Trudeau wasn't journalism — “It was stenography”

Rebel Staff

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.

NEXT: Mark Meechan, better known as YouTuber "Count Dankula," joins me to talk about the EU's new Article 13 regarding copyright, commonly known as the "meme ban."

THEN: Meet our new reporter from Alberta, Keean Bexte! We talk about his special new "beat" in oilsands country.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

us into a serious recession. With that, our dollar drops another 10 cents or so meaning the auto parts, softwood lumber and resources the US continues to import from us become cheaper , making cars finished cars in the US and lots of other stuff cheaper and more competitive. So its a win-win for Trump…and a serious lose-lose for us. Its pathetic.
commented 2018-09-20 10:28:05 -0400
Glad you agree, Robert. But it gets worse. Even modest tariffs on finished Canadian cars will drop

Justin Harbord..agree with both your recent comments..If Premier Ford saves Ontario with his NAFTA plea…the cbc fake news will spin it as tough negotiating on the part of trudeau and freeland..But it in reality Ford.. made the deal… if it works out. If it doesn’t trudeau and freeland will whine and complain…hey! it wasn’t our was the big bad American President Trump that picked on and bullied us.

So all you Canadian’s out there blame Trump not me(freeland) and my snuggy fuzzy wuzzy bear justy wusty(trudeau)…hugs and kisses.

Just to clarify (and claim bragging rights!), this was never about dairy…for either side. Both parties want to pretend they did everything possible to save dairy and both parties have accomplished that. But Trump sucked that arrogant PM twit of ours and his over-compensating female minister of his into dying on that hill. Trudeau needs the Quebec vote desperately with Ford Nation now dominating Ontario so his life is on the line. Its those politics, his naivity, his incompetence and his childish arrogance which nownmakes it impossible for him to back down.

So Trump wins ( the Art of the Deal guy, after all…what did you expect, its his identity), the Yanks look like they did everything possible to reach a reasonable compromise and, well, WE LOSE. Goodbye Ontario auto. Sad.

Fine. Off topic for a second. Doug Ford’s in Washington…not to meet with the Team Canada crowd (that’s just for show). Nope, he’s there suriptitiously as I would be to press some serious Yankee NAFTA flesh to show ‘em there’s maybe one adult in the room they might be able to deal with. He knows this thing is going south in a hurry and his province is in the crosshairs bigtime. He wants to reassure those folks that losing on dairy is a reasonable price to pay to keep the auto deal intact. He knows that without that kind of compromise which Trudeau and his children have boxed themselves into defending at all costs, the Yanks are going to drop the hammer by Friday and lay into his auto sector which has been their strategy and objective from the beginning. Its a bit of a Hail Mary, probably too late, but I admire him for trying.

Space Moose must have her period. She gets hormonal and mean spirited every once in a while. Its just gratuitous criticism. Ignore her beachiness.

Faith and Lauren both got fired from the rebel. FAith for her white supremacy sympathies. Lauren for refusing to ask rebel viewers for unnecessary donations for the Israel trip.
Space Moose, are the above reasons for being fired, fact or just your opinion? If they are fact, then I am shocked.

“President Trump credited for listening to them — as Obama administration ignored!”
……and Justin Trudeau ignores deaths at the hands of his migrants, which he told the Canadian public he would take full responsibility for. He sidesteps the dead and carries on with his ridiculous farcical theatrics. He is the biggest disgrace this country has ever had to bear.

Why don’t we ever hear anything from the victims of the truck attacks or the Danforth shooting? There are many crippled and maimed and we never hear what happened to them. Have they and their families been paid off to keep silent? It seems odd to me that none of them ever speak out.

Keep it coming Justin. Show Canadians who you really are.

FYI Ezra,
the conversation you just had with Count Dankula regarding the censorship roll-out in China, to perfect the system before implementing it here in the west … this is the very thing Alex Jones has been talking about for years now. Where do you think he got that idea?
Just sayin’.

Of course the bought and paid for media are going to throw softballs at Soy Boy Trugrope and let Soy Boy return bullshit answers. Trugrope is helping to pay their salaries with hard working Canadian taxpayer money. The loony leftist media would be better off just running a commercial for Trugrope.

At least sane people can switch the channel when this crap is aired.

It didn’t at first come to me, but the more I though about it I realized that any CBC/Boy Blunder interview is the equivalent of farting into a brown paper bag and holding it into the wind…

Justin Trudeau is an abject individual, with no values, no moral compass. He is no longer personally responsible hey he doesn’t even care for the life of a young girl. This guy is a psycho, he should be interned.
commented 2018-09-19 02:03:57 -0400
The joke about ‘Dr.’ Ford, with her accusing Kavanagh, is that she is a Professor of PSYCHOLOGY and she only just now, through the help of a MARRIAGE COUNSELLOR, realized she had psychologically SUPPRESSED the high school experience.

A Professor of Psychology suppressed a 30+ year old experience. What the heck has she been teaching her students?
The marriage counselor should be getting paid a whole lot more or else, be teaching Ford’s students about psychology.

It’s funny for you to mention the Gerald Stanley case as that was the first thing that popped in my head when Trudeau said “I trust our justice system…”, he didn’t seem to trust it for the Stanley case by calling the entire justice system as “racist”. Either you trust our justice system or you don’t… which is it?

That babble after Paul Wells questions was ridiculous, he spoke, but actually said nothing. I have heard more coherent and more intelligent sentences from the kids in my English as a second language classes. Every time I hear that inarticulate, worthless Turd speak, I turn on a recording of fingernails on a chalkboard, it is far less irritating.

Paul Wells may as well have been down on his knees.

Why are Sheila Gunn Reid and David Menzies video’s being posted outside the pay wall?….Anyone remember Lauren and Faith.

Where have all the good guys gone?

I hope Keean works out to be a pit bull. He seems like a mild mannered Clark Kent keeping up his “appearance” when being interviewed by the Mayor of Gotham. But once unleashed he will slay lefist dragons. I have faith in your ability to find talent for the Rebel Ezra.

I am positive that EZRA has asked Bernier for an interview. Bernier now has to think of how his free speech enemies like Scheer, Rempel and the MSM would respond to him being on The Rebel.

Nice to see The Rebel expand with new people like Keean Bexte, however why Alberta, as you already have one of your top Journalists covering that sparely populated Province.
Did you know that Quebec has more seats in the 2019 election than BC, Alberta,Sask and Manitoba put together?
