Video: Trudeau “I’m not going to go around citing Pi to the 19th decibel”


Oh my…

See the  interview of Justin Trudeau showcasing his smarts here apx 2:15 mark

Also: Notice that Global originally covered up for Trudeau “You know I’m not going to go around reciting Pi to the 19th (decimal) or you know wave my grades, or test scores to people,” (see here)

Update: Global has now changed their story wording “You know I’m not going to go around reciting Pi to the 19th decibel or you know wave my grades, or test scores to people,”

    I would write that off as a slip of tongue for most, but in this case.. since the shiny pony was actually saying it specifically to counter the argument that he lacks substance, it’s pretty damn funny.

  2. WTF Says:

    I agree it is a slip of the tounge. We all do this from time to time. Problem is we have seen many examples where Conservatives say something like this and they are roasted for it (Rob Ford, George Bush, Tin Hudak, etc) but when Justin says decibel instead of decimal or Obama says he has visited all 57 states it is ignored.

    A link to my favorite master of malapropisms, some are hilarious. “You should always go to other people’s funerals; otherwise, they won’t come to yours.”

    Only difference is that Yogi was probably the best in the world at his chosen profession,and he won more championships than you can shake a bat at.

    Justin,on the other hand,has never accomplished anything notable in his entire privileged life,and he ain’t lovable. This would be funny if this clown wasn’t trying to become Prime Minister of our Country.

  4. Bec Says:

    He does use “decibels”, I’ve ‘heard’ him but I don’t think ‘decimals’ are something used often by silver spooned, coat-tail kids.

    There is a big difference in these 2 words and bring it on, Justin. The arrogant, disrespectful, soon to be annointed one needs some challenges that includes managing his gaffes. If he can dish it out, he needs to be able to take it. He has been hoisted onto a pedestal, has had no meaningful debate, challenges or questions. He has no right to the leadership of his party and unless he was who he is, would not get a second glance but here we are, he’s the ‘fuddle duddle’ PM’s son. The Libs are at it again and the media had better think of Canadians and not their personal political hero worshipping.

    • Liz J Says:

      Well the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. The son of the Fuddle Duddle Liberal PM has called another MP “a piece of shit” in the House of Commons so he’s got a leg up to equal his Poppa even before by some fluke of stupidity by the people he gets to be PM.

  5. Michael Harkov Says:

    Now imagine this guy representing Canada as it’s leader, sitting across a table from the leaders of Russia or China, or North Korea or any M.E. country. What an idiot.

    • BC Blue Says:

      Trudeau is proud of not creating a platform but being strong on policies – how does that work exactly?

      • Michael Harkov Says:

        How does it work? He’s a windsock, nothing more.

      • Liz J Says:

        A platform for a Liberal is putting out a bunch of stuff they think the people will fall for, all things for all people, with no intention of following through, their “policies” will be like a grab box of surprises for the suckers who supported them.

  6. Anonymous Says:

    Ok, it’s “tongue” and “decibels”

  7. Devon Says:

    What scares me the most is that this guy could very well become the next Prime Minister of Canada if we are not careful. I mean Quebec and Ontario just love the clown. And I suppose the Maritimes do to.

  8. fhl Says:

    go to Stephen Taylor
    he captured interview it is “decibels”

  9. Ian Says:

    Pi to the 19th POWER, perhaps. Then again he wasn’t a math teacher.

  10. Anonymous Says:

    Yeah, Trudeau no.2 is real “smart” and junk … God help the country if this dips##t ever gets near the PMO’s office. The media are going to have a heck of a difficult time selling this horses’ass to the public. Good luck with that marxists. It’s gonna take a lot more than moving “decibal” points around to make No.2 seem like, you know, smart and stuff.

  11. fhl Says:

    sorry I read tom clark wanted you to apologize SORRY

    • BC Blue Says:

      Clark was asking Norman Spector to apologize. I asked Clark to clarify that he was saying that Global didn’t originally post the incorrect wording but he hasn’t replied back.

  12. fhl Says:

    stephen taylor has a great ad worth conservatives having a look

  13. fhl Says:

    Poll at Macleans choose your Prime Minister
    please vote

  14. Joe Says:

    At first I thought this was simply a slip of the tongue until I listened a little more carefully. 19 decimals makes no more sense than 19 decibels. 19 decibel places could be construed as a slip of the tongue 19 decibels….not so much.

  15. LynnS Says:

    Well, he should be comfortable connecting with those Canadians who can’t find the Atlantic Ocean on a map.

  16. Guffman Says:

    Notice that many lefties are saying this is no big deal, it’s a slip of the tongue, and move on. Yet these are all the same people that will still go on about Bush pronouncing nuclear as ‘nucular’.
    As usual, no story when it’s one of their’s, but a never-ending quotable example how stupid another person is if he’s conservative.
    As others have pointed out here, the funny (or sad) thing about Justin’s quote is that is was an answer to a question about how he’s being portrayed as having no substance!

  17. LynnS Says:

    On the unrelated subject of Margaret Thatcher’s passing: I notice that the CBC refers to Jean Chretien as “Former Primer Minister” but Brian Mulroney is only “The Right Honorable” and not “Former Prime Minister”. What a bunch of pigs. Reporters can’t help themselves; while praising her they bring up the fact that she was “kicked out of office” and that she was both detested and respected. I despise the CBC for their cronyism…

  18. Jen Says:

    Once a upon a time the media had only the liberals to cover up (protect) now they have: ndp, bloc grp. to protect from us canadians. Whatever mistakes those three parties make which was plenty the reporters in one chorus sing the same tune that ‘nothing was said’ we heard nothing’ we are hearing and seeing things which are not there and so forth.’
    The radicals and those who despise canada have those three parties and the media wrapped around their little finger.

  19. Margaret Thatcher dies but guess what Trudeau tweets first? | BC Blue: One BC Conservative's view on it all... Says:

    […] perfect examples of a PM Trudeau – yesterday’s Pi gaffe (see here) and today, missing in action on Thatcher […]

  20. wilson Says:

    Kinsella article today wants the media to stop following JT around! Says he can’t live up to such high expectations.
    Oh yah, little Trudeau is living up to expectations, just not the ones the LPC want to project.
