For Justin Trudeau, "sorry"really does "seem to be the hardest word," doesn’t it?
Actually, that’s not completely true. Back in 2017, he embarked on what I call "The Justin Trudeau Apology-Palooza Tour," in which the PM criss-crossed Canada, endlessly saying sorry, sorry, sorry and producing enough tears to fill a Mr. Turtle swimming pool.
In any event, I’m sure you’ve noticed something of a theme when it comes to a Trudopian apology. Namely, every time he stages a grandiose mea culpa complete with waterworks, he apologizes for the sins of OTHER people that were carried out a long time ago in a Dominion far, far away.
Justin’s apologies are NEVER for something Justin Trudeau himself has done in the here and now, the most recent example being his thuggish conduct with Jody Wilson-Raybould.
Look, I’m no psychiatrist, but I think this speaks to ego, and privilege, and entitlement. Justin Trudeau is a trust-fund baby, born with the proverbial silver spoon wedged firmly in his mouth. I wonder if Pierre and Margaret ever compelled their little Superboy to utter a single sincere apology whilst Little Justin was growing up.
But there is some perverse irony at play here. If Justin’s self-entitlement is indeed preventing him from making a personal apology, then this is ultimately a self-defeating strategy.
That’s because the public is very forgiving. But the caveat is that you have to be honest and sincere rather than evasive. TONIGHT I'll give you example of one of the most famous examples of this in my lifetime...
Meanwhile, as the LavScam dumpster fire morphs into something that resembles the Hagersville tire fire, where, pray tell, is our fearless leader?
Well, he’s taken some more personal days off!
Oh sure he’s got cabinet ministers touring the country, creating distractions – er, I mean, making announcements – pertaining to everything from climate change to women’s liberation.
But Trudeau himself was apparently on a Florida beach working on his tan.
Hey, maybe Justin thinks that when he returns to Ottawa from March break all the trouble swirling around the SNC-Lavalin affair will be gone and forgotten. If that’s the case, then not only is Justin Trudeau incapable of personally apologizing – but he’s downright delusional as well...
