Kevin O'Leary Prepares To Join the Con Leadership Race
Ever since Kevin O'Leary's infamous "Summit Meeting" with Tony Clement, I've been sure that O'Leary would end up running for Con leader.
He knows a third-rate Shark Tank when he sees one.
And after sizing up Clement over a bottle of wine, he probably came to the conclusion that he could easily beat him and any of these other Con losers...
So there he was yesterday, vowing to take on "Surfer Dude" Justin Trudeau.
Celebrity businessman Kevin O’Leary unofficially launched his bid for the Conservative leadership Monday, promising that the next election will be an “ugly fight” against Justin Trudeau’s Liberals.
“2019 is not an election, it is an exorcism.. It’s going to be war, it’s going to be ugly, you’re going to hear a lot of bad things,” O’Leary promised.
Making a fool out of himself on social media by seeming to forget what country he was in...
While managing to sound almost as crazy as Donald Trump...
But then who can blame him? When with every day that passes the Cons are sounding more and more like the Trump Party.
For what else can explain that the ghastly Kellie Leitch should now be trying to keep Mexicans out of Canada?
Or sounding even more like a fascist...
What else can explain Steve Blaney's heated support for Kellie Leitch AND Donald Trump?
In a new fundraising email, Conservative leadership candidate Steven Blaney sticks up for his ideological soulmate Kellie Leitch and accuses rival Maxime Bernier of picking on her in this week’s Moncton debate.
“Last night, he ridiculed our colleague Kellie Leitch and insulted President-elect Trump by saying: ‘I don’t know why she is playing a karaoke version of Donald Trump.’
“What an awkward way to start a relationship with the newly elected president of our largest trading partner,” Blaney writes in the email. “He even said that Canada doesn’t need another Donald Trump. Why?
Which can only make people wonder whether the nuclear rods he's been carrying around are still radioactive.
And then there's the hapless Chris Alexander, who judging by what he said at Ezra Levant's latest rally is also trying to sound like Trump.
Alexander told the crowd that he refused to let political correctness keep him away from the second rally.
“Lots of people told me not to come,” he said. “Lots of people back east … establishment types, media, top brass. I’m not going to fold to a bunch of politically correct people. I’m not going to let them tell me what to say or what to think.”
And of course, who can forget the religious fanatic and hideous bigot Brad Trost declaring climate change to be a hoax just like Trump does...
And getting a standing ovation.
And the good news? The Cons are making a fatal mistake.
For the last thing most Canadians want see at a time when so many are worried about the orange demagogue, is a Trump Party popping up like a poisonous mushroom in Canada,
So Trump won't help the Cons, but he will almost certainly help Justin Trudeau by giving him, as Michael Harris explains, a Trump bump.
The only thing that stands between being shorn like sheep at the hands of Donald Trump, and retaining our national integrity is Justin Trudeau. All the pressure will be on him to cooperate with the Americans as our most important trading partner. All the pressure will be applied to accept that Trump is the Elephant and we are the Mouse in most dealings.
And the more he stands up to the bully Trump, the more popular he will become.
While the Cons will be seen as Trump's stooges, pay a heavy political price.
And end up where they belong...
