The Night Sophie Grégoire Trudeau Stole the Show
As you know the last month has been a horrible one for Sophie Grégoire Trudeau.
Rona Ambrose and her monstrous Cons have gone after her, her children, and her mother in law Margaret.
And Sophie even had to lecture her husband about minding his elbows.
But none of that seemed to bother her last night, when she appeared before her enemies at the Press Gallery dinner.
And managed to steal the show.
Justin Trudeau became the first prime minister in a decade to crack jokes at the Press Gallery dinner — but it was his wife who ran away with his part of the show.
After a few jokes, the prime minister brought Sophie Gregore Trudeau to the stage at the Canadian Museum of History: "I want to ask you to join me to welcome the mother of my oh-so-convenient and effective props, my children."
By firing off a few zingers in the general direction of her tormentors.
"When I thought of the opportunity that I was going to have here on stage in front of all of you tonight, I thought, it's the best chance I have to express myself in song. And you were so kind to me the last time I sang," she said, referring to the public scrutiny after she burst into song at a news conference in January.
"In order to do this, I need a pianist, a cellist, a violinist, because I need a team. I need to feel supported," Gregoire Trudeau declared to laughter.
And after singing and pulling off a really hard yoga pose, still managed to spare nobody.
"You should be doing more of this, then you'd be hitting less people, right?" she said to her husband, fresh off Elbowgate.
"And this is really good for anger management. Tom, you wanna try it?" Gregoire Trudeau said to NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, who has a reputation for having quite a temper.
While angry old Tom Mulcair gritted his teeth, and shocked the audience by firing off a few F-Bombs.
At a roast of journalists and politicians, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair declared he gave "zero f*cks" and then proceeded to drop several of them in a memorable speech.
"It's great to be here at the press gallery dinner and you know why? Because unlike every other person here tonight, I give zero f*cks," Mulcair said.
Which tells you all you need to know about his state of mind. And the state of the NDP.
And no doubt had his caucus members running for the exits with bags over the heads.
While Rona Ambrose did her best to try to make people believe she's no longer Stephen Harper's puppet.
"Stephen Harper actually loved humanity," she quipped. "It was just people that he couldn't stand."
In offering up suggestions for new slogans for the current Conservatives, Ambrose suggested: "The bad man is gone."
For which she will no doubt pay a heavy price later...
But yes, isn't it great that the Trudeau's have managed to keep their sense of humour despite all the foul attacks aimed at them?
They really are quite a team.
And if the ghastly Trudeau haters thought they could push Sophie around.
Hopefully now they know better...
