I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President. He’s a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change. The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term.— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) October 16, 2019
Thanks my friend, we’re working hard to keep our progress going. https://t.co/l4V42PZbef— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) October 16, 2019
Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada and leader of the Liberal Party, has landed the coveted endorsement of Barack Obama ahead of the Canadian elections in which he is facing a tough fight for reelection, not his own former Vice President Joe Biden.
“TORONTO — Barack Obama is urging Canadians to re-elect Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, an apparently unprecedented endorsement of a candidate in a Canadian election by a former American president.
Obama tweeted Wednesday that he was proud to work with Trudeau and described him as a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change.
“The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term,” Obama wrote.
Trudeau later responded with his own tweet: “Thanks my friend, we’re working hard to keep our progress going.”
Trudeau is in a tough re-election fight ahead of Monday’s parliamentary elections. …”
Muh democratic norms!
Joe Biden is out of touch with the base of the modern Democratic Party for being perceived as an old straight White male. Justin Trudeau, however, is a more exciting, young, genderfluid, transracial Person of Color. Just look at him. He is even blacker and gayer than Obama.
“Polls show Trudeau could lose to his Conservative Party rival in national elections on Monday or fail to win a majority of seats in Parliament and have to rely on an opposition party to remain in power. Not since 1935 has a first-term Canadian prime minister with a parliamentary majority lost a bid for re-election.
A combination of scandal and high expectations has damaged his prospects.
Last month, photos of Trudeau in blackface and brownface when he was younger surfaced, casting doubt on his judgment. And the boyishly handsome 47-year-old was tarnished by a scandal that erupted earlier this year, when his former attorney general said he pressured her to halt the prosecution of a Quebec company. Trudeau has said he was standing up for jobs. …
Justin Trudeau reasserted the country’s liberal identity in 2015 after almost 10 years of Conservative rule and has been viewed as a beacon of hope for liberals in the Trump era. The Liberal Party leader appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine under the headline “Why Can’t He Be Our President?”
Sensing Trudeau is now in trouble, Barack Obama made an unprecedented endorsement by a former American president, urging Canadians to re-elect Trudeau and describing him as a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change.
“The world needs his progressive leadership now,” Obama tweeted.
Trudeau has championed diversity and gender equality. Half of Trudeau’s Cabinet is made up of women, four are Sikhs, and his immigration minister is a Somali-born refugee. He has embraced immigration at a time when the U.S. and other countries are closing their doors. And he legalized cannabis nationwide. …”
It is possible that Trudeau could go down on Monday.
If you haven’t heard the news, Justin Trudeau is in trouble in Canada after being caught repeatedly wearing blackface and crossdressing as a racial minority to escape the guilt of being a White male. Barack Obama has endorsed him in an unprecedented act of American foreign intervention in a Canadian election in a last ditch effort to bail him out of that electoral hole.
It is hard to imagine a world without Justin Trudeau on the world stage who has provided us with so many lulz over the years as Canada’s soyboy president and as one of the world’s most prominent and hypocritical leaders of progressive liberalism. Is it really over?
