CONFUSION: Government MP Ruby Sahota’s Explanation For Russian Expulsions Goes Against What Trudeau, Freeland Said

The Liberals can’t even get their story straight.

In a recent CTV interview, Liberal MP Ruby Sahota totally contradicted both Justin Trudeau and Chrystia Freeland when she tried explaining why Canada expelled four Russian diplomats.

Sahota – who recently called attacks on Trudeau’s India costumes “offensive” – said Canada expelled the diplomats in solidarity with the United Kingdom, and said that was “the only reason” for the expulsions.

Yet, that’s not what Freeland and Trudeau have said. Trudeau said a Russian attempt to “discredit our minister of foreign affairs” was part of the reason, while Freeland said there was an effort to “interfere in our democracy.”

Sahota also said the expelled diplomats could have been “legitimate threats to our elections,” something the government has not said.

Additionally, Sahota directly contradicted Trudeau when asked about whether the alleged campaign to discredit Freeland had anything to do with the expulsions:

“That’s not the reason. I know that may build an interesting news headline, but that’s not the reason,” said Sahota.

Trudeau government confusion

This level of confusion is embarrassing for the government, and demonstrates total incompetence. Sahota would have been briefed ahead of time, and would have been given talking points. So, she either couldn’t remember the talking points, or the talking points she was given contradicted what the government has already said.

If the government can’t get their story straight, it raises doubts about everything they are saying, and it makes us look like fools on the world stage (not that we could really look any more foolish under Trudeau).

Even after over two years in power, the Trudeau government shows that their dangerous agenda is matched only by their lack of competence.

We don’t need to expel Russians, we need to expel the Canadian government.

Liberalism is indeed a mental illness: In 2005, Michael Savage famously wrote a book titled, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder, the subject of which is self-explanatory. Additionally, Dr. Lyle Rossiter, a board-certified clinical psychologist, wrote a book in which he diagnosed the ideology of the left as a tangible mental illness. Perhaps though, liberalism is not so much a novel mental disorder, but a more cleverly disguised form of illness already widely studied since the late ‘60s – narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). Remember – There is an argument to be made that President Obama himself is a narcissistic sociopath. They… Read more »

I agree 100%

This government would not recognize ‘getting their stories straight’ if they had it written on teleprompters. They are so used to lying — about anything, at any time, on any subject — that the truth would appear to them as a lie.

That is the way their minds work (is ‘work’ a proper use of that word?).

Perhaps, by 2019 we may have ( had better have) learned a very costly and embarrassing lesson, which is what happens when one elects an immature clown as a supposed P.M.


Amen to that …


The question is, ‘ Will Ruby be punished?’ Liberal MPs are not allowed to speak independently. Second question, “Why are Turdo’s minions attracting an audience?” They don’t know wtf is going on.


So she contradicts her leader and Freeland, big deal. All the media has to do is get on the ball and try their damnest best to whitewash what she says to protect Justin. Remember, everything the lib mp blunder on is always cleaned up by their media cleaners.

As the addage goes; to anger a Conservative, tell them a lie … to anger a Liberal, tell the truth.

Mel Kozun

How about we expel Liberal cabinet ministers that lied on their citizenship application???

The Liberals like many in different parties often do not like people to openly discuss the truth? Neither does the media often in Canada which also publishes fake, false news. Pierre Trudeau did what he did during WW 2. If the media did their job better at times Trudeau Sr. would be more exposed. The WW2 fascist supporter should have his name removed from Dorval Airport, Pierre’s real legacy was the waste of Mirabel Airport. As for our foreign minister, sad what her grandpa did, why is she not be openly proud, why does she not tell the world, pardon… Read more »

“The Liberals can’t even get their story straight” …

What do you expect from a ragtag band of junior activists.

ps- When did the Liberals become the NDP v2.0 ?
