The old school Liberals let Trudeau be an idealist during the election so they could ride his coat tails back into power from disgrace then neutered him once he was in office.
Since your pm I've been thinking I should give you a break, but hot damn that is a really dumb thing to say. Trudeau is a pompous, arrogant fraud who uses his "charm" on the weak to get what he wants - power. His history is littered with taking advantage of people and being all about image - his. You think Trump was a narcissist? Trudeau sets the standard for how it's done. He may genuinely believe in promoting women and women's rights, but he only does it because it serves his ego. When push comes to shove he's a misogynistic fraud. Everything he does is about serving his own needs.
I really don't care if you give me a break or not, but you are reading into what I said with your own ideas of who you think I am. I guess that is what stalkers do so I shouldn't be surprised.
I think you are wrong about Trudeau. I think he is naïve and impressionable and it was the old guard of the Liberal party that he has known his entire life that launched his career. The Liberals were lost in wilderness after the sponsorship scandal and desperate to find an electable leader and picked Trudeau for obvious reasons and it worked. They let him campaign however he wanted since they wanted to win and didn't want the taint of their scandals draped over him, but once elected they laid the plans for the party and let him know what was really going to happen. The funny thing is people always criticize him as being a fraud or a dumb drama teacher but still think he is a power hungry puppet master. He can't be both, and I suspect it is mainly the former sadly. His naivety was on full display in the We scandal. He rammed that through and didn't even try to hide it because he thought it would be cool. So many of his scandals were politically naïve including the dismissal of JRW since he should have known who she was.
The Liberals rode his coat tails back into power. I can't see you making an argument against this. Are you saying he took full control of the party from the old guard? Look at his cabinet. There was a lot of women as we all heard about, but there was Goodale, Dion, McCaulay, McCallum. A lot of names that go back to Chretien and Martin. Do you think Bob Rae was taking marching orders? I don't. I think Trudeau was.
