Chrystia to Jody: "You go, girlfriend - NOT!"
Chrystia Freeland has her own Twitter no-fan club.
But first, the tough stuff ...
Macleans Feb 14: What did the Liberals see in SNC-Lavalin? A company in need of a bailout.
IF - What a big word that is. And how frightfully useful when you want to smear without being too obvious about it. "Remember, I said, 'if', eh?"
Meanwhile, an observer named Watchdog comes right out with it:
Postmillennial: Watchdog says Trudeau violated ethics rules…again
(Too bad Watchdog messed up her name. But we get the idea.)
Whoops! Here comes the silver-tongued Foreign Affairs Minister, Chrystia Freeland:
Translation: The Prime Minister is just a sweet darling. He doesn't even smell bad when he sweats. They made a darling calendar out of him; that's how sweet he is. Therefore, Jody Wilson-Raybould might be telling lies, although I would never say that in so many words, though she does seem to love implying things more than being AG.
So, pretty much a "no" on that. And here I thought Freeland didn't have a subtle bone in her body. Yet, reading between the lines, as one must with a true diplomat, it's clear that the sentiment is this:
Wilson-Raybould doesn't know how to play ball; she doesn't possess the artifice that's considered desirable in a "player"; that is, knowing how to "feint a pass" to psyche out the other team; to appear to go in one direction while aiming dead-on for another.
Well, nobody can say we haven't been warned about Jody Wilson-Raybould.
Flashback to 1983 (YouTube), Pierre Eliot Trudeau is at the helm of the Canadian ship, and Jody Wilson-Raybould's dad alerts him to his daughter's ambition to be a lawyer and run for his job.
He must be some Dad if both of his daughters wanted to be just like him!
With regard to the Justice Committee's meeting (YouTube) at which Wilson-Raybould spent a gruelling several hours responding to questions: I can't stress strongly enough that everyone would do well to watch it and learn what it's like to be honest, straightforward, non-vindictive, stoical and moral in the face of unrelenting interrogation. In politics, it's considered a drawback.
If Trudeau were to do the sensible thing and resign, you can bet Freeland would fall all over herself to grab his place. But Wilson-Raybould presents as a very suitable candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party, and I hope she goes for it.
If she ran, I think I might actually vote. The Trudeaus can't say they weren't warned.
