Gerald Butts and Justin Trudeau are using the same sexist explanation to try to salvage a situation.
What the feint is happens to be gaslighting.
I am not going to link to any reference except for one, but place this observation here on its own.
Jody Wilson-Raybould is a lawyer by trade. She did not get her position out of a Cracker Jack box. She has experience, and I would like to point out this passage about her:
Jody Wilson-Raybould has a way of making an impression. Oddly enough, for a politician, she often makes it in private. There was the day in 2011, back when Wilson-Raybould was heading the B.C. Assembly of First Nations, that she ran into former prime minister Paul Martin. He later said she treated him to a “brilliant exposition” on First Nations issues, which led to Martin talking her up in his Liberal circles.
Smart woman who has an ability to effectively communicate.
So the argument that she repeatedly misunderstood the multiple requests for her to cave in to corporate interests is pure bullshit. The end.
The argument drops dead from her end.
Now, is the Prime Minister and his manservant general Butts implying that all eleven people who repeatedly went to her lockstep with the same request were poor communicators?
Eleven people whose very job is to be effectively communicate?
Didn’t the Prime Minister win his job by communicating during the campaign?
Doesn’t he give speeches? Does he debate in the House of Commons?
Did he not communicate in his memoir Common Ground?
Aren’t every single one of the Trudeau 11 educated complete with one or more universities degrees?
And the problem is some sort of miscommunication, spanning months?
Who the fucking hell is stupid enough to buy that bullshit story?
The world leaders in the remaining 194 countries must be laughing their asses off…
