MEGHAN MCCAIN: Trudeau offends millions belting out a Queen karaoke hit as world mourned her death

MEGHAN MCCAIN: Trudeau offends millions belting out a Queen karaoke hit as the world quietly mourned her death – and blows apart the insufferable moral superiority of the Left: it really is just fantasy

‘I see a little silhouetto of a man, Scaramouch, Scaramouch, will you do the Fandango!’ — Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

O Canada, you must be so proud.

As we’ve all seen by now, pretty-boy Prime Minister Trudeau was caught on camera (possibly drunkenly) singing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody (and poorly at that) in a hotel bar on Saturday night before the state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II in London on Monday.

The amateur video shows Trudeau with members of the Canadian delegation, who had come to attend the somber event.

He is seen dressed casually in a t-shirt absolutely belting out the lyrics to the famous song in a fashion that would really have been better suited for a late-night karaoke bar than a lobby in public view, as mourners gathered to honor the most respected and admired woman in the United Kingdom’s modern history.

This was not a celebratory time. It was a time of global mourning, particularly for Canadians, whose country is part of the British Commonwealth.

Who would be so thoughtless and disrespectful?

Of course, it’s Trudeau.

This is the same person who lectured a female Canadian student for using the word ‘mankind’ during a question-and-answer event.

‘We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind, because it’s more inclusive,’ he blathered.

Oh yes! By all means, we don’t want to offend delicate sensibilities.

But performing a bad Freddie Mercury impression as millions of people in the United Kingdom and billions around the world mourned the queen – that’s just fine.

Honestly, it’s par for the course.

During his almost eight years as Prime Minister, Trudeau has become an avatar for everything that people globally find insufferable about the virtue-signaling, self-righteous left.

First, numerous, now-infamous photos that emerged during his re-election campaign showing him in full blackface (above) at parties as a student and later as a teacher.

He’s an unrealistic, slick parody of what we think of when we envision what woke politics have done to western culture and how progressive men present themselves to the world.

They stand above the crowd, looking down and judging. They have some special insight into how the ‘civilized’ behave. The rest of us must be instructed, by force if necessary.

But to paraphrase Freddie Mercury, it’s ‘just fantasy’.

Two things come immediately to mind when I think of the careful caricature that is Justin Trudeau.

First, numerous, now-infamous photos that emerged during his re-election campaign showing him in full blackface at parties as a student and later as a teacher.

If you haven’t seen them, do a quick google search. The photos are horribly tone deaf at best and grotesquely insulting at worst.

He also is only 50 years old, so the excuses of ‘that was the time’ don’t ring true in the same way it does for other people, who participated in something that we now recognize as unacceptable.

Trudeau said it was simply a mistake. But would he extend that same forgiveness to others? I doubt it.

Second, I think of his puritanical, dystopian COVID vaccine mandates and the brutal crackdown that he unleashed after his heavy-handed governance triggered mass strikes and protests.

As ‘Freedom convoy’ protesters descended on Ottawa and cities across Canada last winter, Trudeau insanely declared the protests ‘illegal’ and championed the suppression of legitimate dissent through law enforcement and corporate censorship.

Trudeau is all about freedom, until direct democracy gets in the way of his agenda.

And recall, how Trudeau weighed in on American society when the country was dealing with violent riots triggered by the murder of George Floyd.

‘We all watch in horror and consternation what’s going on in the United States,’ he said, when asked about President Donald Trump’s call for the military to address the violence.

But Canadians truckers are honking their horns in Ottawa? Drag them to prison!

And before anyone cries hypocrisy — No, I did not have a problem with the Prime Minister of Finland when videos surfaced showing her drunk and dancing with friends.

She was doing this privately, on her off-time, and was recorded in a private setting. Trudeau on the other hand was clearly looking for attention being the natural born entertainer that he is.

To put it in American terms, Justin Trudeau is the Gavin Newsom of Canadian politics.

Remember when California’s Governor Newsom was caught on camera dining, maskless at one of the country’s most exclusive restaurants during the depths of COVID lockdowns?

These guys are such phonies.

But the public is getting wise to it. Trudeau narrowly won a third term as prime minister in the last elections.

Yes, even polite, progressive Canadians don’t seem nearly as enthralled with his Hollywood politics, behavior and looks as they used to be. He currently holds a 40% approval rating in Canada.

He has long been the sanctimonious cartoon-version of the type of politician that people in San Francisco worship and people in the rest of the country are repulsed by.

He is the type of leader who passes judgment on those who accidentally use the ‘wrong’ pronoun, vote conservative or don’t abide by the same brand of politics that he preaches.

As far controversies go, there are worse things happening around the world. But Trudeau presents himself as the pinnacle of progressive perfection. That’s why this sing-song scandal is so entertaining.

You’d think he would know a little more about social decorum and just plain manners. Could he really not wait a few days to do something like this back home in Canada?

I guess when it comes to deference to the memory of Queen, ‘it doesn’t really matter to’ him. It’s Trudeau’s version of ‘do what I say, not what I do.’
