Justin Trudeau says a lot of stupid things, but this week, the Prime Minister has outdone himself.
According to Trudeau, ISIS fighters can be “an extraordinarily powerful voice” in Canada.

Everybody seems to love Justin Trudeau.
Our prime minister is something of a whiz kid when it comes to getting positive news coverage, whether it’s for memorizing a few lines about quantum computing, striking cool yoga poses, declaring himself a ‘feminist’ over and over and over, or for taking perfect selfies with refugees, bureaucrats at Global Affairs Canada and even Chinese Panda bears.
Journalists all over the world swarm Trudeau at international summits and swoon over his good looks. He’s been called “dreamy,” “charming,” “handsome,” and a “genuine heartthrob.”
But the international fanboys and fangirls got to see a different side of Trudeau late last month. Many at home and around the world were surprised, and quite frankly dumbfounded, to hear Canada’s progressive Prime Minister offer glowing praise for ruthless Cuban socialist dictator Fidel Castro.
Following Castro’s long-awaited and much-anticipated death in late November, the government of Canada released Trudeau’s statement, claiming to speak on behalf of all Canadians.
Trudeau said it was “with deep sorrow” that he learned of the passing of “Cuba’s longest serving President.” (Dictators who ban political opponents, independent journalists and democratic elections tend to rule for a long time.)
Trudeau spoke of Castro’s “tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people” and for their “deep and lasting affection” back at him. (Don’t tell that to the families of those killed by firing squad, the refugees whose boats were bombed as they tried to flee, or those who starve and suffer in political prisons.)
Trudeau praised the murderous tyrant, putting his family’s friendship with the Castros ahead of common sense and compassion to those who suffered under Castro’s heavy-handed rule.
Many were left wondering, how could Trudeau be that stupid?
Well, for Canadians who pay attention to Trudeau, this is nothing new. Trudeau has a long history of saying strange and off-putting things; things that make many Canadians feel embarrassed and uncomfortable.
The truth about Trudeau is, he isn’t always very serious.
His career before politics was uninspiring. He did odd jobs, travelled the world, taught drama and elementary French, and charged tens of thousands of dollars to give speeches
there is NOT 1 Canadian citizen that approved of this stunt pulled by justine trudork..thats right i called him justine...he doesnt have any balls to be called a man..the 8 million dollars that khadr got was after taxes...he was given $10.5 million in the out of court settlement

After newly-elected Ontario Premier Doug Ford this week suggested Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should pay for the immigration “mess” he’s made, Trudeau as is his habit hopped onto a soap box.
“It didn’t seem to me that the premier was quite as aware of our international obligation to the U.N. Convention on refugees as he might have been,” Trudeau lectured after meeting with Ford. “So I spent a little time explaining how the asylum-seeking system works and how our system is supposed to operate,” he said.
Turns out though Canadians think Trudeau is the one who doesn’t get how our immigration system is supposed to operate.
A new national poll by Dart Insight found 70% of Canadians don’t believe Trudeau’s government has a clear plan to deal with the flood of refugees, economic and illegal migrants crossing our border and 58% don’t believe Ottawa has handled the situation well.
Earlier this year Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard called Ottawa’s response to his pleas for help with the refugee crisis “a complete ignorance” of what’s going on at the border, and now Doug Ford – who like Couillard is dealing with the reality of a chaotic, ideological federal Liberal border plan that utterly fails to serve refugees or the communities trying to accommodate them.
But that’s hardly a surprise.
Trudeau prefers style and progressive posturing over substance, responsibility and pragmatic responses to real problems.
His embarrassing and condescending penchant to dress up when abroad on diplomatic missions, his disastrous focus on gender-equity during trade talks with the U.S., his empty environmental posturing and reckless deficit addiction all reflect style-over-substance swagger.
His passive-aggressive response to Donald Trump’s travel ban on some Muslim countries was to tweet “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada.”
Trudeau’s invitation understandably attracted millions fleeing danger, as well as those simply looking for a better life but wasn’t followed up with adequate funding to help cities cope with the massive costs of caring for legal and illegal migrants, or beefed border security or processing to ensure criminals and terrorists are not hiding among the helpless.
Those seeking refuge are hardly blame. Trudeau, on the other hand, doesn’t get he’s responsible for the mess at our border.
here is the real dumbass trudork refusing to answer a legitimate question from a concerned voter and calls her a racist
you tell me if you hear any racist remarks from her..it is in french but subtitled
then trudork goes on to defend himself and refuses to apologize to that woman and the Canadian voters
and blames it on the prior PM Harper..let me as a Canadian be perfectly clear..it has nothing to do with fear or intlorence
it is the burden that trudumb has put on the backs of Canadian taxpayers
