NATIONAL LAMPOON’S: Trudeau’s India Trip Is Nothing But An Expensive Taxpayer-Funded Vacation

A half day of work on an eight day trip? Pathetic.

Justin Trudeau will try to make his trip to India – already failing due to a big snub, criticism for weakness on Khalistani extremists, and a tweet spelling Gandhi incorrectly – look like it’s about working for Canadians.

It’s not.

It’s an expensive taxpayer-funded family vacation, with a mere half-day of actual work.

And that’s being noticed around the world.

Here’s how it’s seen in the Hindustan Times newspaper:

“As Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continues his eight-day visit to India, the fact that his schedule includes just half-a-day of official engagements in New Delhi is being described as “unusual” by veteran diplomats and criticised by a Canadian watchdog.

A veteran Indian diplomat said in his long experience with bilateral visits, he had never experienced a trip of this nature, where the visiting dignitary spent so little time in official engagements with counterparts in the Indian government.”

That’s not all:

“The low-key start to the visit on February 17 also raised eyebrows, with commentators noting that Trudeau was received at the Delhi airport by minister of state Gajendra Shekhawat.

This, they noted, was in marked contrast to the warm welcome and hugs from Prime Minister Modi that marked the arrivals of US president Barack Obama, Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi crown prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.”

Additionally, the report notes that India’s Prime Minister Modi didn’t issue a tweet welcoming Trudeau.

Canadian taxpayers fleeced for Trudeau’s family vacation

Clearly, Trudeau’s trip to India is a huge waste of taxpayer dollars. If we were paying for one or two days of actual work, it would be totally reasonable, but paying for eight days when there’s just a half day of work is a joke.

Trudeau is a very wealthy guy from a very wealthy family. If he wants to take the family on a vacation to India, he can pay for most of it himself. At least that would show some honesty, rather than hiding his vacation behind the facade of an ‘official’ visit.

Meanwhile, Trudeau says there’s not enough money for Veterans. Perhaps that’s because he’s wasting it all on his own sense of arrogant entitlement.
