In case you were not sure if there’s an election coming up in Canada, Justin Trudeau has confirmed that there is one. He is starting to give away the store. Blanche, don’t you wonder who believes him?
He announced that billions of your tax dollars will go to foreign-aid for the health and rights of women and children around the world. While his gesture of course is wonderful, how about taking care of the people in your own country first? Like the aboriginal women who live in abject poverty in the north and that he promised to help before the last election.
Obviously he was preaching to the choir when he received a huge ovation for the following remark: “This is a game changer that will empower 18 million women and girls in developing countries by 2030.”
By the year 2030 Justin Trudeau will be a teensy weensy footnote in Canadian history and the promises he is making now will be like a dot on the head of a pin. He’s really a piece of work.
Mayor Bill Steinberg of Hampstead is in the news again, this time for something that should have been dealt with long ago – armed guards at synagogues and other places of worship in Montreal.
While the law seems to be that off-duty policemen are able to protect synagogues while carrying their guns, this request was refused, most likely by the head of the police department.
Not wanting to think about ‘what if’ or worse, ‘it can’t happen here’ is like burying your head in the sand when a tornado is approaching. It’s coming and you better find shelter.
In Chicago or other US cities, people come to synagogue ‘packing’ a gun. We are not quite sure what the police are waiting for here, but they best get in the game and not look like the keystone cops at the expense of those they are supposed to be protecting.
Sephora, the France-based beauty chain will be closing all U.S. stores on June 5 for a day of “inclusivity training” following accusations of racial profiling from R&B singer SZA.
The kiss of death for such stores is when people like SZA (who we never heard of until now), with a twitter following of almost 3 million post something negative on twitter. She posted that she was racially profiled in a Sephora store in California, claiming a staff member thought she might be stealing.
We are guessing that the head honchos at Sephora had nothing short of a meltdown as they posted on their twitter account: “You are a part of the Sephora family, and we are committed to ensuring every member of our community feels welcome and included at our stores.”
Ergo tomorrow all US Sephora stores will be closed to re-educate or as they say, give a day of inclusivity training to their employees.
In defense of Sephora and any other brick and mortar store for that matter, stealing is a billion dollar business or a billion dollar loss depending on which side of the coin you are on. The bottom line is if you are in the US tomorrow, order from Sephora online.
We happened to watch the pomp and ceremony when the Queen and President Trump met in London yesterday. No one in the world does pomp and ceremony like the Brits. While Melania and Ivanka looked great, the Queen took the prize. She has met twelve American presidents, starting with President Harry S. Truman when she was a princess and heir to the throne.
At 93 years-old you don’t want to mess with her – she has all her marbles, carries herself with dignity and has a sharp tongue. We think that even Donald Trump met his match.
Joe Biden needs some masking tape over his mouth. The media is watching every move and every statement he makes, now calling him Creepy Joe, way worse than Trump’s moniker of Sleepy Joe.
He joked at a recent campaign event in New Hampshire about how a woman pulled him “close” without his prompting when a voter reached out to speak in his ear.
“We’ve got a little secret going here. I want the press to know she pulled me close.” It’s not funny, he’s not funny and we will say this again: Women do not like when men get too close. It’s creepy and totally inappropriate. Biden’s numbers in the polls are slipping. Our prediction is that he will not be the candidate after all is said and done.
It won’t be Elizabeth Warren who ruined her own career with her ridiculous Cherokee business nor Pete Buttigieg. The US is almost ready for a woman president. It is not yet ready for a gay president. Zaidy Bernie is dropping in the polls like a stone. We are hearing that Kamala Harris could move up but who really knows.
The bottom line is that so far there’s no one on that long list who can beat Trump.
