Ahhh…the punch to the face. It’s still kind of surreal to think about. The Rangers player shoves Bautista and then plants one right on his face. Crazy.
Well now, the House of Commons is getting into it. Have you heard about ‘elbow gate’. Apparently Justin Trudeau is being accused of elbowing a woman while trying to get one of his guys out of a blockade of politicians. Here’s the video:
Here’s how I see it. Trudeau didn’t man handle his way through. He simply helped one of his colleagues escape a crowd that wasn’t allowing him to pass. Did he bump someone along the way? Looks like it – but it certainly doesn’t look intentional. Honestly, watching this unfold and then seeing the reaction from everyone else is like watching a bunch of kids on the playground. Is this really that big a deal?
Say what you want about Trudeau, but this appears to be just a guy who was tired of seeing his friend not being allowed to pass through to start the proceedings as they normally do. Whether or not the NDP folk knew this guy was trying to pass through or said ‘excuse me’ or something is unclear…but come on people! This is ridiculous and it seems that Trudeau was fed up with watching it as well.
Let’s all take a deep breath and be civil. After all, if this is what you think is a big issue – you certainly are not paying attention to the real needs of Canadians.
