Justin Trudeau had an appearance in Toronto earlier this week to promote “his” memoirs “Common Ground.” I already covered the bit where he was confronted by a bunch of crazy anti-oil environmentalists.
However, the most interesting (though boring for most people) part of the presentation were the lengthy reminiscences about his lacklustre childhood and family life, which he unsuccessfully tried to make challenging and exciting. He was desperately pushing the image of an undervalued gem that is as good as any other politician in Canada. Justin went too far praising himself.
In the short video segment below he filed obliged to tell his audience what a great mind he is. During a few seconds missing from the beginning, he said that he wanted to share a secret – his opponents thought that he was not an intellectual and didn’t have deep thoughts, but he was extensively schooled at the dinner table by his famous father.
Father and son delved into philosophy and history, wrapping their minds around problems big and small. So now he has the confidence to confront anybody on an intellectual level.
Well, one can only envy his narcissism, which towers Mount Everest. Normally, advertising your own great mind rakes of desperation – the best policy is to leave to the others to appreciate your greatness by your deeds. But since Justin has not done any deeds worth respect, other to ride the Pierre Elliott Trudeau’s nostalgia to win the Liberal Party leadership, he has no choice but to praise himself. With every passing day he looks more and more like Obama in 2008, when the latter was still able to fool plenty of people.
For starters, to prove his great mind, he could write his own memoirs, instead of outsourcing the task to an almost communist collective of journalists (which included even the “conservative” Jonathan Kay). Another hit for him would’ve been to finally formulate his elusive vision for the future of Canada, which he wants to build after ousting Harper. At this point, the women infatuated by him are influenced mostly by his beautiful hair than by any actual political views (and so is the “anybody-but-Harper” camp).
Enjoy the deep intellectual mind of Mr. Trudeau:
