Justin Trudeau Mispeaks (What Are the Odds, Eh?), Mixing Up Japan and China

See it here.

Mark Steyn comments:
If Trump had twice referred to Shinzo Abe as the leader of China, Morning Joe and Brian Stelter and Rachel Maddow would be jeering round the clock that he's a racially insensitive know-nothing. But, when Justin does it, the court eunuchs of the CBC rush to protect him. To a Panglossian media, whatever Prime Minister Candide does is all for the best in the best of all possible Ministries of Possibilities. Thus, Justin's inability to tell the difference between Japan and China apparently means to crack CBC reporter Elise von Scheel that China is weighing heavy on his mind

This would be a more persuasive argument if Justin had a mind to weigh on.
Tee hee. Poor Justin. Even The Simpsons seems to have it in for him these days. (And if you're a liberal who's lost that TV 'toon, you know your stock has dropped lower than the Great Crash of '08.)

Da Joooos as dogs/a sinister force in control of the world has made an unwelcome reappearance in the pages of the Zion-loathing New York Times. Times columnist Brett Stephens addresses the calumny here.
