Minister of Industry James Moore announced his retirement last week:
Moore, who announced Friday afternoon that he will not be running in the upcoming federal election, said it was recent “difficult news” about the health of his two-year-old son Spencer that made him refocus his priorities.
Spencer suffers from a rare bone disease and “it’s very challenging” to balance family needs and responsibilities as an MP, Moore said during an interview with CBC News.
But instead of congratulating Moore on a long political career, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s top adviser Gerald Butts once again proves to be unfit for the powerful position his has been given:
You have to wonder about the mental stability of someone who automatically attacks like this without even bothering finding out what the details were behind a politician’s resignation.
After being exposed, Butts immediately deleted the tweet and apologized:
But in no way does that excuse his vile behaviour. If any Liberal staffer besides Butts had written that, they would have been immediately fired.
Also: I normally would never post an image from someone’s personal Facebook page but since James Moore’s account is open for everyone to see I don’t believe I’m intruding on his privacy and it is the best “political” FB post that I have ever seen:
The caption Moore included reads: “Arrived home last night at midnight in Port Moody to the perfect affirmation of my decision #lawnsign2015.”
