Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau likes to boast about his sunny ways, but his disposition was far from sunny this afternoon in the House of Commons.
Impatient at a delay over a vote on the Liberal government’s controversial physician assisted suicide bill, Trudeau crossed the floor of the Commons and grabbed Conservative whip Gordon Brown and, in the process, elbowed NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brousseau. Trudeau was heard swearing at Brown when he physically accosted him. Trudeau then walked over to confront NDP leader Thomas Mulcair who shouted at Trudeau, “What kind of man elbows a woman? It’s pathetic! You’re pathetic!”
Trudeau “apologized” later in the Commons, but justified his actions by stating that Brown was impeding the vote. It’s not the Prime Minister’s job to compel the House to come to order. It is the job of the Speaker of the House.
Justin Trudeau’s conduct dishonored his mother and father and makes me embarrassed to be a Canadian. Frankly, Trudeau is no better than Corey Lewandowski. Justin Trudeau is a thug.
