OMG! Fun Fact

Fun fact: In 1971 Richard Nixon triggered a trade dispute with Canada. He called the Canadian PM an "asshole" and a "son of a bitch". The Canadian said "I have been called worse things by better men".

That Canadian PM was Justin Trudeau's dad. - Matt Bevan tweet

Like father like son. Priceless.

34. The Difference Between PET and JPJT

 

Pierre Trudeau was known to occasionally extend the middle finger or mutter, "Fuddle-duddle," but at the beginning of his acceptance speech Justin Trudeau reference an earlier leader, Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier, whose Sunny Ways approach took much of the heat out of a troubling acrimonious debate, proving that Canadians can compromise in the face of intensely-felt conflict.

I will be surprised if Justin Trudeau ever speaks roughly to his opposition, but he will speak distinctly, concisely and accurately, no matter how bellicose the opposition becomes.

20. WoW! Small world

I believe Nixon was the first president to visit china in 1972 under the rule of Mao Tse Tung, another despite. Nixon later on was under investigation for Watergate. Of course he wad smart enough to get out before he would have been impeached.

They say history repeats it self. Let's hope so!

33. The Crazy Thing is . . .

the Trumpster's insult and attacks on Justin Trudeau have sparked a national support campaign by Canadians for their leader. Even conservative members in Canada are now on the Trudeau bandwagon.

The Trumpster comes off looking like a jealous old man who's been upstaged by a rockstar.

So much winning!!
