Trudeau has Resorted to being a Twitter Troll while the Liberal Campaign Fails

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on August 25, 2021

Liberal Finance Minister Chyristia Freeland a couple of days ago was labeled by Twitter as having shared “Manipulated Media” after posting a heavily edited video in order to claim Conservative leader Erin O’Toole was in favour of moving towards private healthcare.

Although many Conservative voters would likely want O’Toole to actually do that, the video Freeland posted was a complete lie in order to fearmonger about healthcare being taken away, despite private systems having far better access than public systems. 

In response to this and being asked questions about Twitter flagging Freeland’s video, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continues to deny and double-down on the lies that his Finance Minister was trying to push on social media.

As time has gone on Trudeau has basically become a Twitter troll on this issue, making contextless response videos in his campaign bus claiming O’Toole has “confirmed” he backs private healthcare in Canada

Instead of pulling down Freeland’s manipulated video, Trudeau instead thinks the path forward is even more aggressively pushing the lie by simply asserting it to be true and hoping it catches on through sharing from his fans on Twitter and Facebook as if he thinks this election was just some celebrity feud. 

It indicates the sort of desperation the Liberals are in overall. In many polls now the Liberals are only slightly ahead or even trailing the Conservatives, in spite of how bland O’Toole and his platform are. 

It likely isn’t that the Conservatives, the NDP, and the PPC have become suddenly popular over the past 10 days, and more so that Liberal voters are checking out with the bad excuses Trudeau has for the election, and ridiculous statements like “I don’t think about monetary policy.”

Unless Justin Trudeau mounts a major comeback quickly it looks like his chances at getting the majority government he selfishly seeks have all but faded away, and he may have even handed the Conservative Party and Erin O’Toole their own minority government.
