John Oliver On Why Elbowgate Isn't a Real Scandal
I think that most sensible Canadians understand that elbowgate isn't a real scandal.
No matter how loudly Ruth Ellen Brosseau screamed, or tried to look as if she had been shot.
And that by trying to make a huge deal out of it the opposition is just looking ridiculous.
So I'm glad to see that John Oliver also believes the same thing.
As you can see here.
Best line for me:
I guess that's a brawl by Canadian standards. Although in New York, to be honest, we just call that shopping at Trader Joe's.
As we all know the Americans like to make fun of us for saying "sorry" at the drop of a hat or a tuque.
But I'm kind of proud of that because it is who we are, and it does show that most of us (with the exception of Con scum) have better manners than most of them.
But Oliver is right, enough is ENOUGH.
Oh, for f*ck's sake. Enough! Enough! There may be no clearer difference than the United States and Canada than the fact that in the U.S., presidential candidates write books called No Apology while in Canada, Trudeau may be expected to spend the remainder of his term in office apologizing for the existence of his arm wherever he goes.
Now let's just hope that the Cons and the NDP get the message,
And stop making absolute jackasses out of themselves...
