A leopard cannot hide its spots

  • Two wonderful verses from the book of Luke in the Bible say: “There is nothing hidden that won’t be revealed…,” and “be careful or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close in on you unexpectedly like a trap…

    ” We’ve seen this, be it Hollywood or politics, scandals resulting from truth being revealed, the least they were expected, and the unexpected being trapped with dire consequences. A good example – Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau just caught himself in a trap, when least he expected it.

    After his unbelievable victory in the last election, Mr. Trudeau has been riding the wave of popularity ever since, particularly from the young generation who wouldn’t know the difference between politics and Canadian Idol. And to the delight of all, Canada’s and the world’s beloved PM delivered to their expectations. As one international columnist said, I quote, “the only thing he [Trudeau] seems to enjoy… are things like pop-culture events… and meeting and greeting and taking pictures with the public like a movie star or rock star would.” Critics claim he still had to focus yet on things less sexy but really important to Canada itself.

    But then, when he finally focused on his prime ministerial duties, just like very recently when he sent Canada’s official condolence in the death of Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Trudeau revealed how totally inept he was to be the world-class leader he imagined he was. He praised Fidel Castro like he would a hero, thus raising ire and outrage from the international community.

    Probably still lost in the clouds as Vogue’s Sexiest Man Alive Mr. Trudeau forgot that he is the leader of a country that vigorously champions human-rights against despots like Fidel Castro himself – or probably he got a D-minus in his high-school History class.

    Social media has been ablaze with angry comments from international media and U.S. politicians including Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Mark Rubio, among others. Good one Mr. Prime Minister! As one newspaper puts it, “It made him a laughing stock among real world leaders. Up until now, he had them believing he might have substance.” How true – nothing hidden that will not be exposed.
