I don't know if Larry Kudlow used to use cocaine, but we all know that obama did, because he told us about it in his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father,
"Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it. Not smack though."


For those who don't know, saint justin, the prime minister of canada, had a temper tantrum at a press conference after the G7 meeting.
Recently, the US decided to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to protect domestic producers, using the national security exception contained in Article XXI of GATT since 1947
“Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around,” Trudeau said at his own, separate news conference at the meeting’s end.
“I highlighted directly to the president that Canadians did not take it lightly that the United States has moved forward with significant tariffs on our steel and aluminum industry,” Trudeau said. “Particularly, [they] did not take lightly that it’s for a national security reason that for Canadians . . . who stood shoulder to shoulder with American soldiers in far off lands in conflicts from the First World War onward, it’s kind of insulting.”

Canada took part in WW2, Korea, Gulf War 1, and Afghanistan, but sat out the other conflicts such as Vietnam, Gulf War 2, and so on.
In WW1, Canada was in it from the get-go as part of the British Empire, with the Canadian parliament having no say in the matter.
Woodrow Wilson put the US in in 1917, having campaigned in 1916 on the slogan  "he kept us out of the war." Not so much a case of Canada standing shoulder-to-shoulder, more a case of the US coming to the rescue

No doubt US farmers find it "kind of insulting" that Canada imposes a 270% tariff on US dairy despite the US having stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Canadian soldiers, well, you know the rest





Professor Peter Navarro is White House Trade Advisor
“There’s a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,” Mr. Navarro told Fox News Sunday.
Navarro, the Trump trade adviser, said his harsh assessment of what “bad faith” Trudeau did with “that stunt press conference” on Saturday “comes right from Air Force One.”
He said Trump “did the courtesy to Justin Trudeau to travel up to Quebec for that summit. He had other things, bigger things, on his plate in Singapore. ... He did him a favor and he was even willing to sign that socialist communique. And what did Trudeau do as soon as the plane took off from Canadian airspace? Trudeau stuck our president in the back. That will not stand.”


Larry Kudlow is Director of the National Economic Council
“He really kind of stabbed us in the back,” Mr. Kudlow told CNN’s State of the Union. “He did a great disservice to the whole G-7.”

Of course, these all pale in comparison to what's coming out of the Canadian side.
Roland Paris, a former foreign policy adviser to Trudeau, ranted “Big tough guy once he’s back on his airplane. Can’t do it in person. ... He’s a pathetic little man-child.”
Wait, didn't justin just say that Canadians are polite and reasonable?

“Pathetic little man-child” is a very polite and reasonable characterization of Trump. This may be subconscious, but your post length and the likelihood of Clinton or Obama being brought up out of context both signal your mental distress over a post to which you are replying.

it's known as tu quoque aka the pot calling the kettle black.
You labeled a member of the trump administration a "cokehead." I assumed that was an attack on his character, and recalled that the president's predecessor  obama confided in his memoir that he uses "blow" (cocaine) when he can afford it. He sold a lot of copies of that book, so presumably used even more "blow" from then on


The same rules apply to everyone. President Trump, and Messrs Navarro and Kudlow all made the point that Canada is far more protectionist than the US, giving the example of 270% dairy tariffs. Which is what led to the temper tantrum from saint justin and his coterie.
I think that President Trump made an excellent suggestion that the G7 should take down all tariffs, barriers, and subsidies for trade between G7 countries.

the far-left antifa movement has vandalized 2 statues in montreal:
the Maisonneuve Monument (the frenchie who founded montreal) at Place d’Armes and the Macdonald Monument (the first prime minister of Canada) at Place du Canada, claiming that they are celebrations of white supremacy.
A partial quote from the extremists' announcement
We are anti-colonial activists and artists who vandalized two monuments in Montreal celebrating British and French colonialism. The Maisonneuve Monument at Place d’Armes in Old Montreal, as well as the Macdonald Monument at Place du Canada in Downtown West, were both covered in red paint last night. The monuments are unapologetic public icons to the genocide of the Indigenous nations of Turtle Island, and racism in general.
We chose to deface these monuments between two nationalist holidays – St-Jean-Baptiste and Canada Day – as a rejection of all forms of settler-nationalism . We embrace the street slogan of Montreal’s anarchists: Ni patrie, ni état; ni Québec, ni Canada! We also denounce and resist the racist far-right — whether Quebec or Canadian nationalists, whether francophone or anglophone — who are nostalgic about a racist, genocidal, and white supremacist past. Our vandalism is also aimed against them.
