Not really. Beyond immigration, gun control and maybe his stance on North Korea, I don't think I agree with a single other thing Trump has ever said or pushed. Certainly nothing in the realms of education or the environment.

But yeah. Without fail, the loudest and most "angry" people about Trump I hear from are the people... that are not here. They're in Canada, or the U.K., or otherwise somewhere more "enlightened" than us here. It's weird.

This is too funny, to me.

I mean, clearly your heart is in the right place when you are trying to be inclusive. And maybe he feels he has to be aggressive to make the change. I don't want anyone feeling left out either. And maybe some day we will say "Peoplekind". If it makes the majority feel better, I couldn't really care less.

But it's hilarious to interrupt someone, at this stage in the game, in front of a large crowd, and correct them for saying "mankind".

If you listen to the full town hall (only part of it is in this video) you can get a better sense of the bigger picture there. It seems like a woman was pleading with Trudeau that he should allow Faith-based aid and help for things like the homeless and such in Canada, something that Trudeau is vehemently against in any aspect, he got irritated at this and lunged at the "mankind" comment. Really bad look for him. All bad.

I think most sound-minded people, religious or not, are OK with Faith-based help in society. It's help. Why turn it away? I'm not remotely religious but I don't see one thing wrong with people from the church coming in and feeding the homeless or giving them basic necessities. Even if they have to hear a sermon about God to get it (and I'm pretty sure they don't, generally), so what?

They have hate speech laws in Canada, don't they?
I imagine so long as their religious message remains firmly outside of anything illegal, there may not be a problem.

My understanding -- and I could be wrong, my only real frame of reference is a Dr. Drew podcast where he goes into some detail about it -- is that Trudeau has a longstanding rejection of any help that is religious-based, be it for homeless or people displaced by fires and whatnot, and he draws a hard line at it. Not religious-based, he allows it, and a lot of Canadians are upset about this. The lady he was speaking to was one of them.

Justin Trudeau apologizes to the LGBTQ2 community. For the past.



Sidenote: where did the "2" come from?

Maybe he is some kind of a cybrog, which disguises himself as a human being?
