Update 2: After being accused of being “two-faced” by President Trump, Canadian PM Trudeau has come up with an excuse for his

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau downplayed comments he made about president Donald Trump that were caught on camera on Tuesday.

“Last night I made a reference to the fact that there was an unscheduled press conference,” Trudeau said Wednesday during a press conference in London.

“It was certainly notable and I’ve had a number of good conversations with the president over the course of this day and yesterday,” he added.

Asked about his comment about Trump aides’ jaws dropping, he said: “We were all surprised and I think pleased to learn that the next G-7 will be at Camp David, I think that was an unscheduled announcement.”

So Trudeau basically explaining it away as just another miscommunication.

Update: President Trump isn’t one to let criticism go unanswered, and in keeping with tradition, the president called Trudeau “two-faced” Wednesday during a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in response to the hot mic video where Trudeau was seen bad-mouthing Trump to Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron.

“He’s two-faced,” Trump told reporters. “I find him to be a very nice guy, but the truth is I called him out on the fact that he’s not paying 2% and I guess he’s not happy about it.”

Trudeau was likely blowing off steam after Trump questioned the Canadian prime minister about how much his country spends on defense during a bilateral press event on Tuesday.

In an edited clip released by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Justin Trudeau, Emmanuel Macron and Boris Johnson were all caught on a hot mic appearing to ridicule President Trump after a day of rambling press conferences that took world leaders off guard.

At the beginning of the clip, Johnson can be heard inquiring about why Macron was late to a meeting earlier that day, when Trudeau butts in, exclaiming that Macron had to factor in a 40-minute diversion apparently caused by Trump.

The world leaders were joined by Princess Anne, the Queen’s daughter, who naturally was invited to the Buckingham Palace reception where the footage was taken. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte also appears to be in the scrum. At one point, Rutte can be heard laughing while saying “fake news media”.

Though Trump’s name isn’t heard spoken, the subject of their gossipy little pow-wow is pretty clear. At one point, Trudeau can be heard telling his pals about how a certain leader’s team members’ jaws dropped when he launched into a rambling tangent during a press conference.

A loosened up Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, seen sipping from a glass of beer, could barely contain himself, gesturing wildly and shouting “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor!”

It’s likely that Trudeau is referring to his joint press conference with President Trump, where the president veered wildly off-topic and answered questions about the burgeoning impeachment inquiry while lashing out at his democratic rivals.

However, Trump participated in several press conferences yesterday, not only with Nato General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg, but also with Boris Johnson, Trudeau, and a memorably tense news conference with Macron.

Regardless, CNN was all over the hot mic clip, pushing it as evidence that the US hasn’t regained its status in the world.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, leaders wrapped up the two-day summit with a draft communique that made on thing clear: The rest of Nato wants to keep Trump happy, and is much more concerned about what Trump wants than what the president of France wants right now, BBG reports.

The draft showed that leaders made “burden sharing” – Trump’s top priority re: Nato – the centerpiece of the communique.

What!? Trump has a tiny penis and Trudeau’s hung like a hamster? At least I’m nothing like Macron the Purple Surrender Monkey Dishwasher…

FFS as if little children would get on any other way.

I’d like to remind you two that Trump is also PRIVILEGED. He doesn’t have a working class background. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. I agree that Trump isn’t Establishment kosher, nonetheless he himself bragged about giving money to both sides of the Establishment to get his way, so he’s not some virgin outsider. Trudeau indeed is a two faced goon and BOJO is the biggest clown in UK politics.

Other than the fact that this constitutes one more (small) nail in NATO’s coffin, this is a big nothing burger.

A tempest in a teapot……. but it sets me off on a rant. As others have said there is plenty of privilege to go around in this clusterf*ck. So what if Trump’s base is energized by this “incident”. Trump bullsh*ts and disparages about other leaders all the time. And his feelings (and Alex’s among others) get hurt when other leaders laugh about his antics. Give me a break. America and its leadership on all sides is a joke. You have to laugh otherwise you have to weep. What’s caught on tape here is very, very likely what every other world… Read more »

Trump must be INCREDIBLY lucky. Hes not “measured”, “doesn’t know shit from shinola” and yet, he CONSISTANTLY has other politicians around the world doing his bidding, often against their self-professed interests, and his fingerprints don’t even end up on the knife.

HOW does this keep happening??!! I’m totally mystified… Lucky, lucky, lucky guy.

I’ll add a little more to this. Trumps leaving early is mock outrage, he knows full well what these idiots think and could care less (which totally undermines the neo-liberal narrative about his narcissism). This is Trump maximizing the political value of this incident, much the same as his feigned outrage over the leaked Kim Darroch emails. Whether you “like” him or not, anyone who fails to grasp that this is one of his standard political tactics just doesn’t get it. My politics are left, and I don’t “like” Trump, but rather than the dem brainwashing that so many people… Read more »

Trump derangement syndrome in my mind is a very real thing. I won’t be surprised to see this in psychiatric texts at some point. There is also some quote somewhere about “being fortunate that my enemies were so incompetent”.
As to having politicians doing his bidding this statement would have more merit if Trump knew from one minute to another what he wanted them to do. And I really don’s see Xi, Putin, Erdogan, Assad, etc. doing Trump’s bidding.
Hell, Trump doesn’t even get his own people to do his bidding.

The reason you don’t see it is — Erdogan is doing Putin’s bidding (not Trump’s)… while Assad is “working with” Putin (and no one else)… and Xi and Putin are in control of things… for the most part, which means that Trump is working on the level with them (i.e., negotiating). Therefore “doing the other’s bidding” isn’t always the right characterization for what passes in political theatre.

I don’t know… This analysis is starting to veer into 4 and 5 dimensional chess theory. Far above my pay grade. 🙂
Erdogan is doing Putin’s bidding…… LOL Seems like herding cats is less stressful and easier.
Trump (and America along with the west) is just careening from ditch to ditch.

I guess you’ve never heard the phrase “there’s a method to the madness” eh? It exists for a reason, and it’s a reason that usually escapes most of the “blue pill” citizens in the Matrix…

Xi, Putin, Erdogan, Assad are neo-liberal?? REALLY??!! Let me quote what I said for you.
“It works FLAWLESSLY on ANYONE who leans neo-liberal,” Please, if you are going to comment on my posts, do me the courtesy of actually reading them first. Not trying to be rude, but having sufficient respect to read what has been said is the basis that any polite debate starts off from.

Trump isn’t lucky at all. — he simply knows exactly what he is doing. And that appears to be shocking to most head-scratchers, who are not really paying as much attention to what’s actually transpiring as they are to their own thoughts (never a good idea).

How many kids in this playground, huddled in groups? I can easily pull your Thatcher quote from your other article today and insert it here: ‘They are a weak lot in Europe some of them, you know. Weak. Feeble.’

In any case, little things for little minds…

The 50% most wealthy in USA keep the 50% working-poor enslaved by hoarding all the land, wealth, political power and healthcare. Therefore, as 95% of illness is self-inflicted, with smoking, alcohol, drugs and a 50% fat diet clogging up every internal organ in the body, surely the simple and no-cost solution is to force everyone into a healthy lifestyle by giving free healthcare only to those with no addictions. Instead, the public is so gullible-stupid as to think that the upper-half of society will out of the kindness of their heart, pay $4 trillion a year more taxes to give… Read more »
