Minister of Industry James Moore announced his retirement yesterday:
Moore, who announced Friday afternoon that he will not be running in the upcoming federal election, said it was recent “difficult news” about the health of his two-year-old son Spencer that made him refocus his priorities.
Spencer suffers from a rare bone disease and “it’s very challenging” to balance family needs and responsibilities as an MP, Moore said during an interview with CBC News. (see here)
But instaed of congratulating Moore on a long political career, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau’s top adviser Gerald Butts once again proves to be unfit for the powerful position his has been given:
You have to wonder about the mental stability of someone who automatically attacks like this without even bothering finding out what the details were behind a politician’s resignation.
After being exposed, Butts immediately deleted the tweet and apologized:
But in no way does that excuse his vile behaviour. If any Liberal staffer besides Butts had written that, they would have been immediately fired.
Also: I normally would never post an image from someone’s personal Facebook page but since James Moore’s account is open for everyone to see I don’t believe I’m intruding on his privacy and it is the best ‘political’ FB post that I have ever seen:
The caption Moore included reads: “Arrived home last night at midnight in Port Moody to the perfect affirmation of my decision #lawnsign2015“
