The Cons and the NDP Go After Sophie Trudeau
Well I suppose it was inevitable, she's young, she's smart, she's Justin Trudeau's princess.
So first the Cons went after Justin, then they went after their children, then they went after Margaret Trudeau.
And now they're going after Sophie.
For having the honesty and the courage to admit that she needs help to cope with all the requests for her time.
Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau's claim that she's overwhelmed and needs more staff to cope with the mountain of requests for her time has ignited a debate about the role of a prime minister's spouse.
She said she gets numerous letters from people asking her to help with various projects and charities and is forced to make difficult choices about who she can help based on the resources she has.
And of course leading the charge again, was the ghastly Con Candice Bergen...
"It really is the hypocrisy of Mr. Trudeau at this point always wanting more, always wanting more to do self-promotion, to do vanity trips, to do the things that he likes to do," Bergen said. "I think that's where the challenge is and where a lot of Canadians would question more."
Who sniffs for Trudeau blood, like a hog sniffs for truffles.
And was supported on this occasion by the NDP's Nicki Ashton.
"The kind of statements we heard from the prime minister's wife, you know, speak to that disconnect with the reality that Canadian women face," said NDP MP Niki Ashton. "So if we're going … to talk about women feeling overwhelmed, let's talk about everyday Canadian women feeling overwhelmed," she added.
Who you might think was a feminist, but clearly isn't.
And is only demonstrating again how low the NDP has fallen. And why I should never vote for them again as I did in the last election.
And look isn't this cute? They set up a whole twitter site.
So they could bully Sophie further.
And what strikes me as totally outrageous is the hypocrisy of the Cons. Who keep claiming that if Laureen Harper had only one assistant, so should Sophie.
Even though Laureen did almost nothing for anyone, except take care of Stephen Harper...
And when a young activist interrupted her at one of her cat functions, to ask her to help with the case of the murdered and missing aboriginal women.
Did react like this...
Because she was a real people person. When she wasn't living simply at the Chateau Laurier.
And while we're at it, let's not forget Mila Mulroney who had a small army of helpers at her disposal.
Much debate has taken place over whether taxpayers should be paying for her suite of four offices on Parliament Hill, equipped with a staff of three, since the first lady position in Canada isn't as formal as it has become in the U.S.
But then what's really bothering the Cons is that Sophie's husband is so popular, while Rona Ambrose's popularity couldn't be worse.
So they're absolutely desperate.
Sophie Trudeau will have to learn to say no to all the requests she receives.
But yes, as I have said before, Trudeau hate in this country is becoming a disease.
There are a lot of sick people out there. It's getting creepy. The Cons are attacking Trudeau's mother, they're attacking his children, they're attacking his wife. And of course they're attacking him, and flooding the internet with vile insults and death threats.
They're creating an atmosphere of hate, and clearly hoping to encourage somebody to attack him or kill him.
And all I can say to those sicko Con bullies, is show some decency you animals.
And keep your filthy paws off Sophie Trudeau...
