Why Justin Trudeau's "favourite Avenger" answer was more revealing than anyone realized

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The Media Party normally limits its questions to Justin Trudeau to queries about his favourite shampoo. He just got lobbed another "soft ball" -- but wait until you hear his answer this time.

Watch Trudeau's response after a reporter asks, "Who is your favourite Avenger?"

It's a dumb question about a bunch of comic book characters, but Trudeau's answer is actually revealing.

Just watch him.

Seriously: Have you ever seen Justin give such a thoughtful, nuanced, well-informed answer?

Certainly not on topics like ISIS or taxes.

Did you notice the ease and sense of relief, the fun he had forming his response?

We saw the pure joy of a Peter Pan boy who never grew up.

Trudeau is so pathetic. How anyone can take this guy seriously is beyond belief.
commented 2015-08-22 17:44:06 -0400
What a joke Trudeau is.

What was the last non-fiction book you read, Mr. Trudeau?
What body of economic thought is your main influence, Mr. Trudeau?
Who is your best friend, Mr. Trudeau?
Who are your top 3 advisors, Mr. Trudeau?
What are the names and backgrounds of the people that will form your PMO?
How would your PMO handle the case of a financially embarrassed senator in your caucus, Mr. Trudeau?

Justin is just an empty figurehead. What we really want to know is who is pulling his strings…
commented 2015-08-21 18:36:33 -0400
Gerry, neither do I.

In the Forces this event would be referred to as a circle jerk.
commented 2015-08-21 15:29:22 -0400
Those three bozos in the background have no idea who the Avengers are.

Hey Ezra, now that China’s economy is on the verge of collapse and they don’t know what to do, maybe you should ask Justin if he still admires their “ability to turn the economy around on a dime”

Jimmy. Maybe you ‘d like to answer the above question on JT’s behalf? (oh this oughta be good!!)

Justin really missed his calling, he should have stuck with being a drama teacher….
commented 2015-08-19 12:51:33 -0400
Oh, but the media knows that this question is within the limits of his intellect!

Jimmy Da Loser, Justin is at the bottom of your popularity poll. Trill.
commented 2015-08-19 06:48:09 -0400
The Black Widow. She is Devine. No gimmick. Just a badass. Everyone’s looking for a gimmick instead of admitting who they are
commented 2015-08-19 01:06:55 -0400
Jimmy I really notice that you don’t speak your shit when the facts are dead on… Please stay in your box please let the adults talk.
commented 2015-08-18 20:45:12 -0400
Well sure, when you take things out of context. I am quite sure that wasn’t the only question he was asked Ezra. And did you forget that elections are also popularity contests and it’s important to show that politicians are likeable, have a sense of humor and can have fun.

Perhaps The Trud should read ‘Lady Chatterly’s Lover’, (Spelling?), there is a good description of him in there.
commented 2015-08-18 19:35:06 -0400
Justin, more naive than Pearson, more arrogant than pere Pierre, more incompetent than Clark, and more deceitful than McGuinty.
commented 2015-08-18 19:33:51 -0400
It used to be— That the Big Green Monster was Dalton/Wynne The scary witch with was Lizzy The Black Cat was Oboma. The White Ghost—- has to Justin
commented 2015-08-18 19:16:55 -0400
That is a catchy tune…
Go away justin trudeau go away.
Go away kathleen wynne go away.
Go away tom mulchair, go away we don’t care.
Go away, go away, away from here…
commented 2015-08-18 18:36:09 -0400
It’s a good thing to know the favorite Avenger of a PM, that is for sure! NOT
commented 2015-08-18 18:34:02 -0400
justin troodo – you are one stupid dim-witted fk!!!

This troodo pig sounds like a fkg 7 year old at “show and tell”.
commented 2015-08-18 18:27:17 -0400
Here is something that Justin could watch and contemplate for hours.
commented 2015-08-18 18:14:00 -0400
I was expecting a politician’s answer: I liked Tara King, the Avenger (on the show “The Avengers”) who was a Canadian actress. But Jizm is too young for that series. Yup, they sure ask the little drip from the old man’s -— some tough questions!
commented 2015-08-18 18:00:09 -0400
Perhaps , the media should be interviewing Kathleen Wynne instead of Justin. Same difference-except she has the ability to twist a LIE into the truth. Justin is still in the hero-stage—-Where he swoops in and SAVES Canada— from something or other.
commented 2015-08-18 17:27:13 -0400
Wait! Captain America is not Tony Stark.. Stark is Iron Man. HA!
commented 2015-08-18 17:23:37 -0400
Jimmy should be proud
commented 2015-08-18 16:51:15 -0400
He is such a man child.
commented 2015-08-18 16:48:31 -0400
Yeah, but in the “shampoo” interview he did not say um,ah,er or take deep dramatic breaths. Cant get much better
commented 2015-08-18 16:34:13 -0400
It is to weep.
commented 2015-08-18 16:11:52 -0400
Not since the great shampoo question…..Nailed it!!!!! Love it!! Tears coming outta my eyes.
commented 2015-08-18 16:06:52 -0400
That Liberal sign in front of Justin tells a truth about him and Mulcair!
If either one of these two get their hands on Canada there really will be a change for the Middle Class – There won’t be any! We we all be in Poverty, Just like Obama has done to America – Gerald Butts and Jeremy Bird both worked Obama’s Politics I believe!
