So says the New York Times. Their sources? Trudeau’s very own senior staff:
President Donald J. Trump’s personal style and policies are widely disliked by Canadians, including, according to Mr. Trudeau’s inner circle, Mr. Trudeau himself. But sometimes gall must be swallowed. Mr. Trudeau swiftly turned the machinery of Canada’s government toward finding a way to get along with Mr. Trump.
Does that little paragraph matter? Does it change things?
I can assure you it does. There are only three things that the Unpresident reads: the Washington Post, the New York Post, and – always, religiously, every morning – the New York Times.
So, as of right about now, Donald Trump has had it confirmed by Justin Trudeau’s “inner circle” that Justin Trudeau (understandably) doesn’t like him or his policies. I guarantee you there will be no correction, because it is true. Also guaranteed: leaderless U.S. Embassy staff have by now had three conference calls about it.
Bottom line: the cat’s out of the bag, boys and girls. The bully knows you really, really don’t like him.
So, why don’t you stop sucking and blowing, and show some spine?
Canadians, along with the world, would appreciate it.
(PS – Thanks to Ian Austen for pulling back the veil on this malarkey. Canadians appreciate that, too.)
