Once again, the Prime Minister of Canada has stepped up to the plate to show our spoilt toddler of a President how a real leader should comport himself and how a real leader responds to a tragedy like the terror attack in Charlottesville yesterday.
Acknowledging that even Canada still struggles with its own population of far-right agitators and racists, Trudeau loudly condemned the violence and extended an offer of support to the injured in Charlottesville.
We know Canada isn't immune to racist violence & hate. We condemn it in all its forms & send support to the victims in Charlottesville.

President Trump’s handlers quickly tried to stem the backlash from Trump’s tone-deaf and half-hearted condemnation of the violence from both sides, “updating” his statement to say this:
“The president said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry and hatred. Of course that includes white supremacists, K.K.K. neo-Nazi and all extremist groups. He called for national unity and bringing all Americans together”
But he is incapable of saying it himself, refusing to take responsibility for his actions and the actions of his followers, unwilling to criticize his base and condemn their behavior.
Prime Minister Trudeau just taught Trump an important lesson in leadership that once again will fly right over his head.
