Hashtag Deters Gasbag

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau will skip Fidel Castro’s funeral after receiving a worldwide mocking on Twitter. BBC:

Canada will be represented by Governor General David Johnston at a memorial service in Havana on Tuesday. Mr Trudeau’s decision comes after his initial statement on Castro’s death was mocked worldwide.

Over the weekend, the hashtag #trudeaueulogies trended after the prime minister’s office released a statement referring to “Cuba’s longest serving President” as a “remarkable leader” for whom the Cuban people had “a deep and lasting affection”.

A selection of some good ones:


All in all, a good reminder that however well radical chic plays in liberal enclaves, it doesn’t work well with the public at large…

    It’s such a great feeling, knowing that making fun of world leaders has become cool again. =D

      Funny how that happens after elections when the ‘wrong’ people win….

        Ah, but all the Hillaryites in Silicon Valley swoon over Trudeau…

        I swear, if Donald Trump had Trudeau’s looks, none of them would have been complaining about what he said about women. They’d be lining up.

          Indeed yes….but lining up for what? (grin)

  • But you were too modest to include the ones by the one &only WRM, which were among the best ones… 😉

    How can you suggest Trudeau Junior is not a serious statesman. Why, he is another de Gaulle.
