Is Justin Trudeau worse than London City Airport?
What a bunch of idiots!
John Bercow has just literally OBLITERATED Trump by saying he doesn't want him to speak at Parliament on his state visit and mentioned sexism, racism, equality and an independent judiciary. A shame in a way as I'd love to see MPs turn their backs on him or shout out insults.
This from earlier today seemed especially ridiculous. Anything negative from that lyin', crooked media is fake, folks.
That tweet today has got to be the best one yet. If anything is NEGATIVE then it's FAKE.
2017 gives a whole new interpretation to the opening lines of Bohemian Rhapsody
That would be 'one of the founders of Black Lives Matter Toronto says Trudeau's a white supremacist', not 'Black Lives Matter Canada says Trudeau's a white supremacist'. It's a pretty key distinction if you're gonna try and traduce a whole movement.

The Donald is doing a live press conference and it's as bizarrely surreal as one might expect.
When he's not ranting about CNN and Hillary he's just rambling and being rude to journalists.
URANIUM...you might not KNOW THIS but it can be USED for BAD THINGS. Some really BAD THINGS. By BAD PEOPLE
It's so so bizarre. His focus on the quality of the questions is such a total WTF? I know we know, but it's shocking watching it raw and live.
I don't even know why they bother showing up. They know it's going to be more incoherent rambling, lies, and refusal to answer anything he doesn't want to.
An empty press conference would be amazing but rather self defeating.
It was basically a Reddit Ask Me Anything (But I Probably Won't Answer It).
I think he really believes he's smart and switched on to the nuances of politics. Nobody has been able to communicate to him that he's a big old DUMBO! It's quite sad really. A Shakespearean tragedy for the social media age.
WTF is going on with this speech? You''d think the STAR of the APPRENTICE would know his way round an AUTOPROMPTER
So he's he's now MADE UP a terrorist in Sweden last night.
In fairness, if you listen to VoR long enough, you'd be fooled to believing that yesterday's Melodifestivalen result was JUST THAT...
So has the Swedish terrorist attack or whatever made the news in rest of the world? It's really mindblowing how he's more or less getting away with all his lies.
His approval rating is the lowest it has ever been for a president at this stage (-20 - normally most presidents never get a negative approval rating until at least a year or two in on the whole 'give them a chance first' basis), so to what extent he could be described as getting away with it is debatable.
In a BIZARRE TWIST the currently most read story on the BBC about this story has reference to Melodisfestivalen: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-39020962
Although he did manage to win the presidency with a negative approval rating, so the polling probably needs some kind of 'even if you hate him are you still planning on voting for him?' question.
He beat Hillary in the key states largely thanks to having more people who disapproved of him vote for him than those who disapproved of Hillary voted for her, which made up the difference when she had higher net approval.
He's just admitted that he got the Sweden thing from some Fox News documentary with some very dubious and refutable claims that aired the night before. And he has the gall to call other news networks fake.
Alt-right publicity whore and unfortunate homosexual man Milo Yiananananaoapaopoulos has lost his book deal after his publisher finally decided that endorsing noncing was just too brave for the mainstream media to handle.
While I don't endorse the murder of homosexuals I do endorse the murder of fascists. Time for another Night of the Long Knives.
Why the fuck did he have a book deal with a well respected publishing house in the first place? Why the fuck is he on HBO? They just normalize shit like this.
I am totally in agreement with all the people on social media pointing out that all of the places giving him a platform before but now cutting him off based on the remarks about paedophilia (like the publishers) might be trying to come off well but are only highlighting their complete acceptance of his racism, misogyny and all the other shit he has said.
What really struck me in the Bill Maher interview he did was what a deeply unhappy, insecure person he appeared to be.
Not that I have any sympathy for the silly prick, but it's always the way with people like him.
Correct. It was fine when he was a misogynist, a racist and a transphobe, wobbling from campus to campus outing people - this was just "controversial". Ultimately, Simon & Schuster have sent a message that they think all of that is still up for conversation. Dicks.
I liked Laurie Penny's article about him last year - suggesting he doesn't really believe all the bile he spews, but that doesn't make it OK.
Isn't that the excuse used for every awful person? Similar things were said of Donald Trump.
Well she compares him to that other megacunt Roosh V, who she reckons DOES believe his own horrible shite.
His self worth must be rock bottom.
That's what's been most infuriating about the right's response to people refusing to debate with him, as if he was some sort of ideological mensch. There's no ideology there to debate, just a desperate need for attention. Trumpism is just that emptiness writ large.
It fucking should be. If I was that big a cunt, I'd have killed myself long ago. Such as it is, this can only really go two ways - he'll either go hard left or just disappear off the radar like that fucknugget Roosh V.
Nothing worse when people lack the spine to stand by what they've said and claim to be playing "devil's advocate". Hardly surprising Satanism hasn't quite managed the same toe-hold as Christianity when all its advocates are so shit.
Entirely expected. The question is whether this is a stalking horse for more i.e. if he gets away with this with a relative lack of storm, where next?
But he's the most LGBT-friendly American president in history!!!!!
What a horrible little man (yes we already know). Why is this an issue in a first world country in 2017.
