Media Party members who finally do criticise Liberal leader Justin Trudeau usually add a caveat which partially excuses him by laying the blame on PM Stephen Harper as if Harper has set the bar for nastiness.
The latest pusher of this garbage meme comes from the National Post’s Kelly McParland:
The party’s reaction to questions about its abortion stance seems to have been lifted wholesale from the Stephen Harper approach to dealing with dissent: denounce, demean, dismiss. (see here)
It’s beyond lazy and very telling that somehow it’s Harper fault that Trudeau is a jackass.
I’ve asked McParland when was the last time Harper screamed out in the House that another MP was a piece of shit (see here) – will get back to you when he lets me know.
