Justin Trudeau Uses COVID As An Excuse To Hide Ahead Of Convoy Reaching Ottawa

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on January 27, 2022

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau right after giving an embarrassing response to a question about the Freedom Convoy 2022 at a press conference suddenly created an excuse to not be present when the truckers reach Ottawa.

Last night Trudeau received mountains of mockery for his “small fringe minority” and “unacceptable views” comments about the trucker convoy. While answering the question it was clear that Trudeau was shaken and uncomfortable speaking out against the truckers, as if he knows he has no clear line of attack on them. 

The Prime Minister could not actually name a position held by the group that is “fringe” which has rightfully caused convoy supporters to go after him for implying that being in favour of freedom and constitutional rights makes them a “small fringe minority.”

Shortly after that abysmal press conference where Trudeau also fumbled on questions about Ukraine suddenly he was supposedly exposed to COVID-19 and despite admitting to testing negative for the virus said he would be self-isolating.

Despite Trudeau claiming this meant he had to self-isolate for five days, Health Ontario does not actually require people who are full-vaccinated, like the Prime Minister, to self-isolate unless they have tested positive for COVID.

It seems to supporters of the convoy that Trudeau is merely using a poor reading of Health Ontario rules in order to avoid being present in Ottawa for the trucker convoy.

Due to this strange timing from Trudeau taking a big swing and a miss on the Freedom Convoy 2022 and announcing he was self-isolating for five days convoy supporters have spawned the hashtag #CowardOfTheCottage.

More and more mainstream support coming out for the trucker convoy and now Trudeau is seemingly in a full-blown optics retreat. 

Once the truckers reach Ottawa and the Freedom Convoy 2022 organizers, Tamara Lich and Benjamin Dichter, hold a press conference the Liberals may be forced to negotiate to end the vaccine mandates as public opinion seems to be swinging decisively behind the truckers and their “Mandate Freedom” message.
