For years Stephen Harper attacked Justin Trudeau as only a bully and a political pervert could.
Smearing him in every possible way, distorting his words, questioning his masculinity, and trying to brainwash us into believing that he was just not ready.
And for years Justin just shrugged those attacks off, much to my dismay. Because I believe that bullies should be taught a lesson, put down, and humiliated.
But in London yesterday, at last, Trudeau finally rang Harper's bell.
Or left him in the dust.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has used an interview with an influential BBC current affairs show in London to issue his most pungent retort yet to his Canadian detractors.
“There’s an awful lot of people who sort of shrugged and said he has nothing but a name to go on and found themselves slightly bewildered as I left them in the dust,” said the prime minister.
And although what Trudeau said couldn't be more true, it enraged the Cons, had them screaming like banshees on social media, and in the comment sections of newspapers.
While the old Postmedia hack Kelly McParland did his best to try to deflate Trudeau.
Justin Trudeau has had a heady few weeks. A decisive election victory over a despised rival. A world tour on which he was greeted like a rock star by squealing fans, badgered for selfies at every stop and invited to hang out at the White House by an indulgent U.S. president who called him “Justin” and treated him like his new BFF.
It would be difficult to keep it all from producing a bit of swelling in the head area. And Trudeau demonstrated precisely those symptoms during a BBC interview in which he took a shot at critics who underestimated him.
Only to look like a bad loser. Slowly going crazy with bitterness.
That’s politics. To the victor go the spoils. Trudeau’s success or failure will be his own. But he would be deceiving himself if he thinks his party was elected on its policies rather than his personality, or that Canadians see him in any other context than as Margaret and Pierre’s son. And the bubble of good feelings will burst pretty quickly if he lets too much of the family ego slip to the surface as he did in London.
While Michelle Rempel had a hissy fit. Or an eruption of envy...
Because she simply can't understand why Justin is Prime Minister and she's just a immigration critic and refugee critic in a loser party going nowhere.
Where she gets to bray like a burro,
Or hang out with the bigot Ezra Levant...
Which if there was any justice or decency, should see Rempel fired TOMORROW.
But as for me, I thought Justin was far too modest.
Because he didn't just leave Stephen Harper in the dust.
He left him on the canvas, gasping for breath...
Or looking like a loser, who claimed his opponent wasn't ready, only to get flattened by him, lose his majority, and get carried off on a stretcher.
And the best news?
At The Rebel, they are trying to turn nostalgia for their late leader into yet another money making opportunity.
But it's just too late. He's down for the count.
The dust of time is slowly burying him.
And he's never coming back...
