It appears Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been taking notes from former U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama.
During the first day of the Munich Security Conference last Friday, he made his first Obama-esque faux pas by meeting with Iranian leaders.
Keep in mind it was only weeks ago that the rogue regime accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airplane containing 176 people from across the world, including Canada, and then tried to offset the blame on others, including Canada’s top ally, America.
To make matters worse, during the conference Friday the Canadian PM then further emulated Obama by warmly shaking the hand of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and then bowing his head to him in subservience.
I know that @JustinTrudeau and the whole Canadian government needs to cooperate with Iran for the sake of the families still dealing with the murder of everyone aboard flight 752 but this is wrong. The smiling, the bowing of the head, the subservience.

Is there any particular reason that Trudeau behaved so sheepishly? Some believe so.
The most plausible theory centers on Trudeau’s long-held desire to obtain a seat for Canada on the United Nations Security Council.
“Canada is making a bid to take a seat on the United Nations Security Council for a two-year term beginning in 2021, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today,” the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported all the way back in 2016.
“Flanked by five of his female cabinet ministers, Trudeau kicked off a two-day visit to the UN headquarters in New York City with the announcement in the lobby.”
The actual voting for these seats won’t begin until next fall, which is why it’s imperative that the PM begins courting leaders now so that he’s positioned for a good vote. But whether or not this warrants courting even Iran’s leaders is another question altogether.
According to conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner and other critics, the answer to this particular question is a resounding no.
If this is what it takes to get a seat on the UN Security Council I don’t want it. How’s that “fulsome and complete” investigation of the crash site going? How many gays does he have to kill before you don’t shake his hand? pic.twitter.com/6Otwxw6tYy

Justin Trudeau is a fraud. He poses with victims of Iran’s terrorism and tells them he cares. Then he laughs and smiles and shakes hands with those same terrorists, weeks later. pic.twitter.com/xVC7KmSaXa

Um, you do know the guy Trudeau is shaking hands with represents a country — Iran — that blew up an airplane killing dozens of Canadians, and then lied about the cause for days until Iranian officials had no alternative but to admit the truth, right? https://t.co/MzPxAXv1dN

Disgusting. Justin Trudeau happily bows and has an almost never ending hand shake with a man part of the regime responsible for murdering 57 Canadians. This is not what Canadians expect from a Prime Minister. https://t.co/2fq2AIgcUz

Compare this to PM Harper:
Harper to Putin: Get out of Ukraine
Trudeau to Iran’s Foreign Minister: Bows head and shakes his hand for 15+ seconds

PM Trudeau’s pandering has hit a new low. After pathetic efforts to buy African votes to sit on the UN Security Council, he bows to Iranian Minister Zarif, the regime responsible for the deaths of 57 Canadians. 1/2

He needs to come home and deal with the blockades that are choking our economy! 2/2

Throughout his presidency, Trudeau has followed in Obama’s habit of appeasing evil people and rogue regimes. And regarding what happened Friday with Iran, it didn’t even mark the first time that week that he’d resorted to appeasement and pandering.
While speaking with Senegalese President Macky Sall earlier in the week, he reportedly said nothing about the nation’s abuse of homosexuals.
“In Senegal, homosexual activity is criminalized,” CTV News reported. “While standing next to Trudeau, Sall doubled down on his stance that his country would not accept any changes to its current laws and that homosexuality or Pride parades would not be accepted.”
“Sall’s comments made front-page news in that country, while Trudeau touted that Canada was able to secure Senegal’s vote for the coveted UN Security Council seat during that visit.”
What the Canadian PM didn’t do was stand up for homosexuals in Senegal who are punished daily with jail time and other human rights violations. All he seemed to care about was obtaining a vote for a U.N. Security Council seat.
PMJT’s press conference with Senegalese President Macky Sall yesterday makes front-page news in Dakar, over Sall’s affirmation that he doesn’t plan to legalize homosexuality. Sall also said Senegal would not accept “gay parades,” either. Trudeau did not respond. pic.twitter.com/MsJpO21e4Z

In many ways, Trudeau’s behavior and rhetoric perfectly mirror those of Obama, who would sanctimoniously virtue-signal about his most passionate causes, including gay rights, but then turn around and literally bow in the presence of the world’s worst human rights violators.
But to bow to the top official of a nation responsible for killing 176 innocent men, women and children, including 63 from Canada, is arguably to take Obama’s appeasement and pandering to a level so disgusting that it’s beyond reasonable comprehension …
