Vainglorious Trudeau hogs spotlight and space at final Tragically Hip show

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Did you watch the Hip’s last show on Saturday? It was a beautiful goodbye from Gord and the boys that likely left Canadians from coast to coast wet eyed by the end of their epic performance in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario. 

Sadly, the night was hijacked by the Prime Minister. He made it known to the whole country in advance that he was attending then paraded into the venue in front of the press ensuring he had an exclusive interview with the CBC’s Ron MacLean, even buying himself a Canadian Tuxedo for the event. How fake.

I don’t have a problem with the PM attending an event like this, or even taking vacations but when you see how much vacation time he’s taken in his first ten months, it becomes a concern especially given recent job numbers and his delayed response to the terrorist event in Strathroy.

The optics have been terrible and they continued down that path on Saturday.

Watch as I explain the many ways the PM managed to hog the spotlight on an evening that was meant for all Canadians to share their final memory of Gord.

What was stopping Justin and his entourage from attending one of the other shows across the country in bigger arenas?

Well, that would have come with little fanfare and wouldn’t allow him to virtue signal to the whole country in his Canadian Tuxedo if the CBC weren’t there for the exclusive.

Trudeau makes my skin crawl. He’s totally disgusting. In every single way possible.

I don’t know if any of you saw Trudeau do the eulogy at his brothers funeral many yrs ago, but I have to admit it was one of the phoniest speech’s I’ve ever heard. He was using the funeral as a stage for his performance and I knew then he was phony and a liar and that Canada would be in trouble should he fallow in his fathers footsteps and low and behold look what we have the Canadian version of Obama. This is Canada’s wake up call to the treachery in our political system and Canada’s chance to do something about it. ps who’s our Hitllery ?.

Bravo Zulu:

How anti-Semitic. How racist and bigoted. Then there is the part that describes non-whites coming and taking over “white” countries. Again, how how racist and bigoted.
You forgot to add this – “How truthful”

Justin, you’re such a pathetic loser…
If a picture paints a thousand words…this 14 second video clip says plenty…

STEPHEN E: So I guess you just omit the first 3 minutes of BZs video as if it isn’t there?Are you concerned that some people may actually see what a socialist/commy arrogant jackass JTs supposed dad was. Alberta barely lived through Papa Docs blatant and vindictive assault on our province, now Baby carries it on. Stephen, enjoy your muslim loving prima donna and the treasure trove of liberal voting parasitic welfare tourists he is importing. At some point the mess being created will become apparent to you leftist sickos, I only hope it is not to late for the rest of us.

We may be better off letting Justin holiday and roam the selfie world for his entire term. It would be expensive but the further from Ottawa the less chance he’d have a hand in more STUPID liberal policy. My personal pipe dream.

RON CHRISTENSEN: The dungeon is calling.

Dump Justin and the bellowing bovine

Does anyone realize when the Hip’s first album came out, Justine was still in Jr high?

Justin is a really bad PM . You even managed to stick your nose in with a dying man—- Justin—-is it possible for you to do something positive for Canadians ? You know—- the ones that work for a living and pay your salary and the salary of all those other deadbeats that follow you around. Justin—- if you ever wanted to legitimize your self—— You would fire that sucky Peter Mansbridge.

You are one hard ,cold , son of a bitch -Justin— Now, I guess Gord Downie can just go away and die. You couldn’t just give the last show of his Life to Him. You had to be in there -Justin Aww well—- Your Groupies love you.

I have never understood the appeal of the hip. They are an incredibly mediocre band, and the news of their singer dying is the most publicity the band has ever received. If it were not for the forced mandatory music content on radio, nobody would have heard of the hip. Just watch. Six months after the guy dies, there will probably be some reality show on CBC where they audition a new singer for the band.

Bravo Zulu:

The link in your comments connects to a White Supremist video. The first part deals with the Trudeaus (and Pearson) but the last three minutes or so of the video “explains” that the problems with the world are because of Jews, how Jews are diluting “white” countries by promoting allowing non-whites in, and that Jews created Hitler. According to the video Jews control the world.

How anti-Semitic. How racist and bigoted. Then there is the part that describes non-whites coming and taking over “white” countries. Again, how how racist and bigoted. I thought you were better than that.

You have put this link up more than once. You write, “send it out to all your friends”. I think not.

That was tragically hip no pun intended..
Maybe he’ll receive something after his death like some special kind of honor or a scholarship or a building named after him or a cornerstone or maybe a Muslim superfast immigration complex to help integrate ungrateful migrants into this country for warlike reasons in the future…
I don’t care if the man is dying anymore I just lost all respect for him.
We all have to die so what’s the big deal if it’s a celebrity or a semi-celebrity… what about the unsung hero the blue-collar working-class people nobody cries when they die except the family and that man has supported every parasitic political entity there is in his country..

Kelly Weber no one is forced to support the Rebel , yet the CBC fawns over this clown at our expense. The night was not about him.

St. Q….welcome to the Rebel you leftist regressive fucktard. I notice that, like little mik man/boy, your too cowardly to use your real name. Pussy!
Are you tired of wee Rony licking your pouch yet?
commented 2016-08-24 01:46:10 -0400
Bravo Z…..I’m not sure if you know, but ron boy has more education in his toe nail than others have in the entire melon. I was kind enough to remind the the leftist regressive fucktard that being educated and being smart are not the same. As you well know, wee Rony is not smart at all. His posts are prof positive of his mental illness. Great video BZ, thanks for the link. I know it was way to complex for the idiot Rony to comprehend.

Trudeau is on a perpetual vacation & forever looking to be the centre of attention. Foolish, clueless Maritimers had already elected him by the time I got back from the voting booth in Mb, so disheartening & maddening, I switched off the TV. Fed up with that whole Trudeau bunch with their lavish lifestyle on the taxpayers’ back. When are they going to stop the travelling & partying, etc & start doing the work they were elected to do. it’s all gone to their heads.
commented 2016-08-24 00:29:07 -0400
It has become apparent that the time has come for any western politician concerned for the future… The western provinces desperately need to extricate themselves from the sucking parasitic drain of central Canada..
When I look upon the face of Justin Trudeau and he’s smiling that face is absolutely evil.
In these free speech zones like the rebel all we do is rant and rave and sometimes I think in doing so we become less than moderately productive.
If we can’t get a movement started or mount something against this man our time is running out.
commented 2016-08-24 00:26:22 -0400
Yea, this was supposed to be a tribute to the Hip and Gord Downie but as usual the shiny pony had to try and steal the spotlight. The guy just can’t get enough of himself. What a narcissist asshole.

JT can keep it up. Actually, he should be encouraged to keep up his amazing Tour of the Stupid.

And the crowds will keep cheering, and he will ramp it up that much more, and then … something will happen. JT will be befuddled. Being PM isn’t fun anymore. Actually, he will start catching a lot of the blame for everything. Why? President Harry Truman kept a sign on his desk, facing outward into the center of the Oval Office, that read, “The Buck Stops Here.” It’s a simple message that says that the President catches the blame for everything. Woe to the leader to doesn’t know this truth. JT doesn’t have a clue about this message, so he’s just going to keep falling into it.

And I hate the Tragically Hip. If they’re Canadian, they are useless.

I think anyone running for PM should have to go through a psychiatric examination. This would prevent Lefty’s from ever running again in this country!!

I live in Kingston and trust me, from the day of the announcement, all the talk was about the arrival of the ‘royal couple’ and whether or not ‘stupid’ would be wearing a shirt. Fortunately he decided not to groom the local teenaged girls, but his appearance at the concert quickly became the media’s wet dream. On a night that should have been Gord Browney’s last hurrah, Trudeau turned it into a tawdry political photo op. Stupid could have attended the concert in Ottawa two days before but decided that he could maximize his impact by crashing Kingston’s event. Disgusting.
