Last night, Justin Trudeau was at a $1,500 a head fundraising reception. That’s for heavy-hitters: People who really want to buy access.
But something happened that you wouldn’t think would happen at a $1,500 fundraiser:
Some protesters were there.
I guess they really paid the $1,500 bucks to get in, so they could protest him.
And someone caught it on tape — I don’t think it was open to the media. So someone obviously used their cell phone.
Those protesters were in support of an Indian Band known as Grassy Narrows. It’s in western Ontario, about a thousand band members live on the reserve.
And their water supply was contaminated over the years by mercury poisoning, from an industrial plant nearby.
(That’s not a political claim or a talking point — it’s a medical fact.)
So how did Trudeau react? He said:
"Thank you for being here, thank you very much for your donation tonight, I really appreciate it."
He laughed. He laughed at the fact that they paid $1,500 bucks a head to get in to protest him.
So much for all his public virtue signalling about Aboriginal "justice and reconciliation."
Then, today Trudeau was accosted by another Aboriginal woman. He tried his quiet slow-talking “I hear you” B.S — and she just didn't fall for it.
There's also a new poll by Angus Reid, with a huge sample size.
It shows that the Conservatives are at 37 per cent and the Liberals are at 28 per cent.
The old schtick isn’t working any more.
The real Justin Trudeau is showing himself:
Thin-skinned. Angry. Entitled. Sneering at everyone — supporters and opponents. Fake. Slippery. A liar.
What’s new, I guess, is that for the first time, the rest of the media, or at least many of them, are noticing...
