Meanwhile, in Canada Trudeau still sucks

Second generation far left liberal (a.k.a. socialist) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is under fire, and his government is under fire for yet another scandal:
Canadians are due to go to the polls in October but Mr Trudeau is battling to maintain his popularity after becoming embroiled in claims his aides pressured former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to ensure construction firm SNC-Lavalin avoided a corruption investigation. The 47-year-old insists there was no wrongdoing but 41 percent of Canadians disagreed with Mr Trudeau in a Leger poll for news agency The Canadian Press. Just 12 percent believed he hadn’t done anything wrong following the allegations which has left his Liberal Party in turmoil.
This is just the latest instance of the former drama teacher's abysmal leadership of Canada.  Recent polls prior to the scandal had new Conservative party leader Andrew Scheer within a percentage point of Justin Trudeau.

After a decade of conservative leadership under Stephen Harper, Canadians elected a liberal Trudeau for the second time in history. Justin's father Pierre led Canada from 1968 to 1979 and again from 1980 to 1984. His tenure was marked by both personal popularity and abysmal social and economic results. That Canada would elect another Trudeau is hard to understand but it proves again that an electorate is highly susceptible to charisma over substance, which is something conservatives continue to forget or not understand.

There's a lesson to be learned in Canada's Trudeau dynasty - facts and logic do not always matter in elections when liberals and socialists manage to nominate charismatic telegenic leaders.  Conservatives mocking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her lack of understanding of practically everything, do so at their own peril.  Yes, her policy pronouncements are downright foolish, but she has an audience. Just like Bernie Sanders climbed into national prominence, she could be a political threat down the road.  That part needs to be taken seriously.
