A "Misspoken" (and MIsbegotten) Justin Trudeau Tries--and Fails--To Do Damage Control

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is still traveling the land in a bid to "reconnect" with ordinary Canadians, claims he "misspoke" when he said, re the Alberta oilsands, "We need to phase them out."

In fact, that isn't "misspeaking."  That's saying exactly what he thinks, what he hopes, what he wants--an end to fossil fuels and their replacement by non-carbon-emitting fuel sources (which are nowhere near ready to take over, and likely won't be for quite some time).

But since that speaking his mind got him in trouble, he had to try to walk it back.

The only--the real--"misspokenness" that's going on is the obviously bogus claim that he "misspoke" when, clearly, he did no such thing.

Next he will claim that his comments were taken out of context.

Maybe. But I doubt he knows what "context" means.
